A brand new point and click graphic adventure game by King Art Games pays homage to the great crime thrillers of the past.

Specifically, it takes cues from classic thrillers of the 1960s cinema, then throws in a bit of Agatha Christie. The game’s plot revolves around both the legendary thief known as the Raven, who leaves behind black feathers as clues for the investigators, as well as the inspector trying to catch him.

The legendary thief has set his eyes on the legendary sapphire known as the “Eye of the Sphinx”, which is on a journey from Switzerland to Egypt. Will the Raven succeed in capturing this legendary gem? Or will the down-and-out Swiss police constable Anton Zellner manage to put a stop to the legendary thief’s plans?

The game is set to come out on Tuesday for Steam, and will follow with ports to various other platforms as well.
