Murdered: Soul Suspect, Quantum Conundrum Dev Closes

Murdered: Soul Suspect was about a ghost detective trying to solve his own murder, but there's not a whole lot of mystery steaming off developer Airtight's color-drained corpse. Recent games like Quantum Conundrum - while by no means bad - weren't huge hits, there were layoffs, QC lead (and former Portal designer) Kim Swift took off, and Murdered never really built up much buzz. Times…

Feature: Paging Dr. Venkman

Murdered – Soul Suspect review

Murdered: Soul Suspect is the tale of a silly man solving his own stupid murder. It's an insubstantial game that won’t haunt your hard drive or your memory for long, but before I hammer the nails into its coffin, I’m going to talk about the good times and the merriment we enjoyed together. Despite the flimsiness of its mechanics and structure, Airtight’s dead detective drama…

Death Of A Salem: Murdered – Soul Suspect

In the past, I've approached Murdered: Soul Suspect with an eyebrow raised and a spot of mockery on the tip of my tongue. Playing as DC's Deadman disguised as a grumpy detective, the player is responsible for solving the greatest mystery of all - their own murder! Potentially intriguing, yes? But then, as the latest trailer demonstrates, somebody kept adding new ingredients to the pot…

Ghost Dick: Murdered – Soul Suspect

In Murdered: Soul Suspect, the man who killed you is primed to strike again. Catching him will be hard, partly because you're a flimsy fedora ghost but mostly because this murderer leaves "no clues and no leads". That's according to the news reports in the trailer below, although they do mention immediately afterwards that a 'crude drawing of a bell' is left at the scene…

Mother Fearest: Murdered: Soul Suspect Trailer

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?…

Witness The Murdered: Soul Suspect Trailer

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…

Opening Shot: 25 Mins Of Murdered: Soul Suspect

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…

Murdered: Soul Suspect Is, Er, Announced

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…

Murdered: Square Want You To Solve Your Own Murder

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…
