Cyberpunk Short Story ‘Murder’ gets PC Release on Oct. 21
Peter Moorhead’s new interactive story hits PC/Steam on October 21st with a 10% launch discount. iPad and Android tablet versions will release shortly afterwards
Monday 19th October, London, United Kingdom.
Upcoming Interactive cyberpunk short story ‘Murder’, developed by celebrated indie developer Peter Moorhead, will be landing on PC/Steam, iOS and Android from October 21st for £1.99/$2.99/€2.99 with a special 10% discount for the initial launch period.
To celebrate the launch, publisher Curve Digital has also permanently reduced the price of Moorhead’s previous title ‘Stranded’ to £2.99/$3.99/€3.99. A bundle containing both Murder and Stranded will also be available on October 21st for the reduced price of £3.99/$4.99/€4.99.
Murder is a unique point and click experience. Heavily inspired by the works of Masamune Shirow, Katsuhiro Otomo, Neal Stephenson, and other cyberpunk greats, Murder takes players on a journey through a near-future Tokyo. Follow the actions of Lieutenant Motomeru Minori of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police on an unusual and dangerous case, in a story that explores morality and sentience in a world where both are commodities.
“My design philosophy is always to consider my story and message first and foremost, and as with Stranded, I tried to deconstruct the form and reassemble it in a way that felt appropriate for what I wanted to say.” comments designer Peter Moorhead “Almost every action has a secondary, sort of proceduralist message, however subtle, and the sum total of these is an experience that rewards thoughtful, attentive play.”
● Beautifully constructed and highly detailed pixel art by Lucas Carvalho and Glauber Kotaki.
● Interactive storytelling with a confident cinematic flair.
● A dynamic soundtrack composed by KubrixXx and sound design from “Steven Universe” composer Surasshu.
