Blue Toad Murder Files Under Development for PlayStation Network

International Mystery Writers Festival

This news item caught our eye. GamesIndustry.Biz published an interview with the founders of Relentless Software, which is developing a new murder mystery game to be released exclusively over PlayStation Network.

The game is titled Blue Toad Murder Files, which, according to the developers, is a murder mystery game along the lines of Agatha Christie and Midsomer Murders and other murder mystery TV dramas like Sherlock Holmes. "I think it's been done a great deal in TV and books and movies," said David Amor, one of the founders. "[B]ut it hasn't been covered that much in videogames and it's an area we wanted to tackle. It's an interesting genre to try and realise. It will come out towards the end of this year."

A website has been set up that promises "Mysteries Revealed Sept. 2009". You can also follow game development on Twitter.
