Indie developer Owl Cave promises Location Services, it’s second game, will be “something a bit less depressing,” than it’s debut game Richard & Alice.
Announced today for Windows PC at an unspecified date, Location Services is a side-scrolling puzzle game “featuring tense security evasion and curious world-building,” according the game’s official website.
“Location Services is,” Designer Lewis Denby wrote in a blog post, “I think, funnier, weirder, and in many ways smarter than our debut effort.” As private detective Anthony Lira, players will hack and interrogate their way to a man known as “D”. Denby describes the game as a “story-driven” adventure game, similar to Richard & Alice, where players solve puzzles against the clock in a entirely digital world.
Owl Cave released Richard & Alice, a traditional point-and-click adventure game set in a post-apocalyptic world covered in snow and ice, earlier this year. The game is available on PC via its website for $5.99.
