Mother Fearest: Murdered: Soul Suspect Trailer

By Craig Pearson on March 22nd, 2014.

I have a piece of advice for the narrator of this Murdered: Soul Suspect trailer: follow-up with any questions you might have after your mother starts monologuing in vague terms about potential danger. She’s talking about unseen things and and saying stuff like: “There’s something out there,” without elaborating. Why not sit down with her and ask for specifics? What sort of family is this? My mum used stare sadly out of the window and tell me there was a slate that needed to be wiped clean or we’d all suffer from poverty and sickness, and when I pressed her she’d tell me to do the dishes or I wouldn’t get my pocket money. It pays to ask questions, and in that case I got £5 to spend on sweets.

Witness The Murdered: Soul Suspect Trailer

By Craig Pearson on August 21st, 2013.


Being a Scotch person, I suffer a daily indignity of idiots asking me to say words that that have the letter ‘r’ in them. ‘Murder’ is a particular favourite. I honestly don’t know what’s so funny about hearing the word ‘murder’ coming from someone with a Glaswegian accent. When you hear it up there, it means you’re either watching Taggart, you’re about to take a broken bottle to a vital organ, or you’ve met my dad. You don’t want to do any of those, frankly. I was reminded of this as I watching the Murrrrderrrredrrr: Soul Suspect trailer, a game about the ghost of a detective solving his own murrrderrrrerrererrrering.

Opening Shot: 25 Mins Of Murdered: Soul Suspect

By Craig Pearson on July 15th, 2013.

Solved: the killer is Kevin Spacey
Just as it took me over a decade to get pun in “Diagon Alley” (Don’t judge me: I got it after walking through it on the Harry Potter Tour. Hmm, I sense further judging after that revelation…), I only just noticed that Murdered: Soul Suspect was a pun. They slipped it in like a clove in tasty rice. In this case, the “soul” part refers to the fact that the detective investigating a murder is a ghost and is looking into his own death, but also to the idea that he’s hunting down a single suspect. Anyway, I have no sympathy for the profane main character. He has a silly hat and he is a smoker.

Murdered: Soul Suspect Is, Er, Announced

By John Walker on June 5th, 2013.

Well release some screenshots then, Square.

This whole industry is bonkers. Launch trailers are released days ahead of launches, there are trailers for trailers to announce release dates, and pre-order packages for games that are barely off the whiteboard. So perhaps I’m becoming inured to it all when I barely bat a beautiful eyelid at an “announcement trailer” for Square’s Murdered: Soul Suspect, for which there was a teaser trailer in February.

Murdered: Square Want You To Solve Your Own Murder

By John Walker on February 20th, 2013.

Perhaps the most impressive thing about Square’s just-announced tease for a game called Murdered: Soul Suspect, is that they managed to secure murdered.com for it. I say that because we know literally nothing else about the game at this point, beyond a gloopy CGI teaser, and the news that it’s coming to PC, 360 and PS3 in early 2014. Oh, and the notion that you’re solving your own murder. I wasn’t even feeling ill.
