New gameplay trailer for mobile mystery Jenny LeClue shows a stunning hand-drawn world
Time to get a clue
Fresh out of PAX East, there's a new gameplay trailer and potential release hint for the Kickstarter-funded game Jenny LeClue - Detectivu from Mografi.
You'll play as Jenny, a young detective looking into the recent murder of the dean of Gumbolt University. Investigate, locate clues, and talk to witnesses, but be careful – the way you interact with characters will impact how they respond to you later in the game.
The plot quickly thickens when Jenny finds out that her own mother is a prime suspect in the murder, and the game promises to have plenty more twist and turns in store.
The trailer gives us a sneak peek at the beautiful, hand-drawn world Jenny inhabits, and a feel for how you'll navigate through the game. There's spooky graveyards and dark caverns to traverse, but also a world that feels packed with a unique personality and attention to detail.
Even more exciting, the very end of the trailer hints at a Halloween release, suggesting that the wait may finally be coming to an end.
We've had our eye on this one for a long time - it was Kickstarted back in 2014, but we barely heard a peep after that. Hopefully it'll finally launch later this year and we can start cracking some cases.
