Game Preview: Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express

Emily Morganti of Adventure Gamers provided a preview of the second Agatha Christie mystery to be adapted as a PC game: Murder on the Orient Express. The first game in the series, And Then There Were None, was released late last year.

In her preview, she states that in classic Christie style, every passenger is a suspect, and it's up to the player to unravel the mystery. The basic interface is similar to And Then There Were None, and the pre-rendered scenes are infused with the same 1930's charm.

Morganti concludes her preview by noting that The Adventure Company, which is producing the game, has been attempting to sign David Suchet, the renowned actor who has portrayed Poirot in a number of television productions, to provide his voice for the game. However, negotiations are still on-going, so there is no definitive word on whether they will be able to secure his services.
