New plot details are revealed in an all-new game trailer, alongside the launch of the official Red Johnson’s Chronicles website.
Champs-sur-Marne, France - April 14th, 2011 - Lexis Numérique, one of the biggest independent game design studios in Europe, today revealed a new trailer for Red Johnson’s Chronicles and unveiled the game’s official website Red-TheGame.com. This original puzzle-based crime investigation title will be available for download on the PlayStation®Network beginning on April 19, 2011. In Red Johnson’s Chronicles, players take on the role of the titular character Red, as he hits the streets of Metropolis to solve a vicious murder. In doing this, players will encounter a refreshing twist on classic point and click adventure gameplay, that features a compelling combination of exploration, puzzle solving and action.
The scene opens on Metropolis, the capital of crime. Here, even the police don’t bother trying to keep the streets safe, and are more often on the side of wrong than right. A seasoned veteran in the field of investigation and a man who believes in all things just, Red Johnson is at his wit’s end, tasked with taking on the criminals that the authorities don’t care to touch. Shots ring out from down near Drowned men’s Bridge, and Red realizes that although he is stretched to his limits, it will be up to him to solve the case.
The victim is one of the most hated men in town, and as expected, Red is called upon to help find the murderer. While two women - Sonia an unstylish redheaded escort and Theresa the victim’s insanely cold widow - are immediate suspects, Red soon encounters several other dubious characters that he must deem friends or foes.Interviewing the men in town doesn’t make anything clearer, but only adds to the list of suspects. Raoul, a violent drunk who pretends to be king of the bums, Officer Robert who pushes his work off on everyone else and Saul, who suspiciously has all the answers that Red needs. As the suspect list grows, so do the enemies including mobster ‘black plague’ Carlos, who “don’t take nothing from nobody.”
In this eight to 10 hour-long adventure, gamers will explore a world in which everything is dark, sharp and deadly - even the humor. Players must explore, analyze, interrogate and solve puzzles in order to find out the truth and solve the case. Offering intuitive gameplay that refreshes the genre, Red Johnson’s Chronicles also has a scalable help system, making it the perfect investigation/adventure game for all types and level of gamers.
Red Johnson’s Chronicles will be available for download on the PlayStation®Network on April 19, 2011. To keep up on all the news and updates surrounding the game, please visit the official website www.red-thegame.com and the official facebook page
