Actual Crimes: Jack the Ripper sharpens blade for PSP Minis release

Having spent some time delving into the mystery of Jack the Ripper, I'm not sure it's an ideal scenario for a hidden object game.

The pseudo ritualist killing of five east London prostitutes was hardly the work of a master criminal, although he did leave plenty of clues.

Enough in fact for an entire speculative industry to spring up to rake over the 'facts'.

Anyhow, Actual Crimes: Jack the Ripper - originally released on PC and DSi as Real Crimes: Jack the Ripper - is now being prepped for PSP Minis.

From Hell

Set in the late 1880s of Victorian London, you have to help Scotland Yard's detectives try to solve the crime.

Visiting landmarks such as Piccadilly Circus and Buckingham Palace, you'll have to search the various crime scenes and solve mini puzzles as you hunt for clues.

Of course, old favourites solutions such as Jack being a doctor, a royal prince or a barber will be posited.

Release date and pricing will be announced shortly.
