The Case of the Golden Idol – now on Xbox and Game Pass

Critically acclaimed across PC, Nintendo Switch, Netflix and mobile, The Case of the Golden Idol now starts to play out on Xbox and Game Pass. This is an investigative experience that you should not miss. 

The Case of the Golden Idol – on Game Pass

Available right now as the latest addition to the Game Pass service, playable on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC is The Case of the Golden Idol. It’s from the Playstack team as they help Color Gray Games land on an all-new market. Consider the love that The Case of the Golden Idol has gathered elsewhere, and it feels like a no-brainer here. 

In The Case of the Golden Idol you’ll get to discover mayhem, magic and murder, tasked with heading to an investigative site and examining the world around. Picking up on clues, making the most of your powers of deduction is key to success in this one, all as you attempt to uncover the secrets behind a number of deaths. 

Working as a point and click adventure, in which the detective elements come to the fore, should you be at home working through a series of elements, The Case of the Golden Idol should well be for you. 

But The Case of the Golden Idol comes with even more appeal then usual, thanks to the base game being present on Game Pass. Free to play through the subscription will mean this is snapped up by many, with more still tempted in by the inclusion of a couple of separate expansion packs – The Case of the Golden Idol: The Spider of Lanka and that of The Case of the Golden Idol: Lemurian Vampire. You’ll need to pay for those, with a £4.99 price tag attached to each (discounted if you have Game Pass), but that still feels like brilliant value for money. 

The Spider of Lanka Key Features

  • A HIDDEN TRUTH Investigate a new cast of characters to discover their motivations and darkest secrets. However, they will not give away their secrets easily. Prepare to push your deductive reasoning to its limit.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
