What do you get when you mix some classic old 1980s cop show drama with the Hidden Object genre? Well, you get the latest title from Artifex Mundi that is releasing on Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch – Family Mysteries: Poisonous Promises.
The latest Hidden Object series to come from the kings of the genre at Artifex Mundi, Family Mysteries: Poisonous Promises rocked up on Steam just a few short months ago. In that time it has picked up a fairly decent smattering of Mostly Positive reviews, but now it is with this which Artifex are trying their luck with in the console scene.
Priced up at £12.49 – free trial available too – and available to purchase and download right this second on Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch, Family Mysteries: Poisonous Promises will see you dropped into a magical city, one that is full of delightful palm trees, the most expensive of yachts and a more than satisfactory way of living. But where you get sunny beaches, you also get shady people and it doesn’t take long for you to realise that this world is full of poison; so much so that you stumble upon bodies full of it.
It’ll be up to you to take on the role of detective, analysing the areas you find yourself in, interrogating witnesses to murders, and gathering up enough evidence as so to understand the secrets of the city, and who exactly is behind the very biggest of pictures.
Family Mysteries: Poisonous Promises comes in the style of the coolest cop shows as Artifex Mundi and the team at Brave Giant deliver the first in a rousing trilogy that should continue to see the Artifex crown shine. It’s helped that this first chapter in the trilogy comes complete with no less than 38 Miami inspired locales, 34 minigames and a whole host of paths for you to wander down.
- A dazzling crime story bursting with action and unexpected twists!
- Unlock juxtaposition of 34 engaging minigames including match 3!
- Find alternative options allowing to choose optional paths!
- Explore 38 beautiful Miami inspired locations!
- Discover what happened on the yacht in the Bonus Adventure!
We should be getting some thoughts out in a full review of Family Mysteries: Poisonous Promises on Xbox One real soon, but for now head to the Xbox Store, the PlayStation Store or the Nintendo eShop and grab yourself a copy. You’d be crazy to miss it, especially if you’re a fan of the other stuff Artifex have created.
You will also find this game present in the latest Artifex bundle – the Summer of Adventure Bundle. This comes with a hefty £49.99 price tag in place, but if you have never purchased an Artifex game before, it’s quite possibly well worth the cash.
