With the newly-released video game from Tequila Works, The Sexy Brutale, it's all about whodunnit.
The game is set during a single, endlessly-looping day within the titular The Sexy Brutale – a stately English mansion converted into a bizarre casino and named by the enigmatic Marquis – players take on the role of elderly priest Lafcadio Boone.
By discovering the key moments and methods how each guest can be saved and gaining occult-seeming powers linked to their masks, Lafcadio is able to explore deeper and deeper into the mysteries of the mansion’s past and inhabitants to uncover the truth hidden at the heart of The Sexy Brutale.
"The Sexy Brutale has been our first collaboration with another studio. Our first Pan-European co-production,” said Raúl Rubio, CEO & Creative Director at Tequila Works. “The first game published by us. Only the combination of talents from England and Spain could produce such a charming, decadent, exhilarating result as The Sexy Brutale.”
A digitally downloaded title, The Sexy Brutale is available for Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Badland Games will also be distributing a physical retail version of the game (called The Sexy Brutale: Full House Edition) as a PlayStation 4 exclusive on Apr. 25.
The Sexy Brutale is rated "T for Teen" by the ESRB.
