Charlotte Sutherland, solo developer at Cave Monsters, has announced her first game release, Lord Winklebottom Investigates. The game is set to launch on PC, Mac, Linux and Nintendo Switch.

Set in the roaring ‘20s, the game sees the world’s foremost giraffe detective about to embark on his most challenging case yet. A mysterious invitation to an isolated island results in a grisly murder and a race against time to track down the killer. Thankfully, there’s nobody better to crack the case than the great detective and gentleman, Lord Winklebottom.

Join Lord Winklebottom and his steadfast hippo companion, Dr Frumple, as they investigate the murder of their old friend. Uncover clues, interrogate suspects and solve puzzles to crack the case. Our daring detective will put his neck on the line to capture the killer and uncover the horrifying dark secret at the heart of the Isle of Barghest.

Game designer and creator Charlotte Sutherland said: “Lord Winklebottom is homage to detective stories, particularly those set in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, such as Sherlock Holmes, Agatha Christie and the Paul Temple mysteries. I’m really excited to bring the strange world of Lord Winklebottom and its bizarre cast of anthropomorphic animals to life, and can’t wait for people to get the chance to play it”.

Cave Monsters is looking for £25,000 to help with a Kickstarter campaign that will last 30 days from 25 February to 26 March. The fund will be used to get the game fully voice acted to a high standard, collaborate with a composer to create a 1920’s inspired soundtrack, programming assistance, and additional localisation for other languages.

The game will be released on PC, Mac, Linux and Nintendo Switch in Q2 2020.
