Genre: Adventure | Developer: General Interactive Co. | Release: 7. April 2022 | Im Game Pass ab: 7. April 2022
What does a police officer do after she hangs up her service weapon? In the case of Amira Darma, the answer is: She starts her own detective agency and does what she does best, namely solving dangerous cases.
And with that, we have settled what Chinatown Detective Agency is all about. You can choose a customer in your detective agency, travel around the world and stop the criminals. It’s all set in 2037, in a futuristic version of Singapore, where Amira runs her business.
The world is marked by economic unrest and almost exudes a dystopian flair. But don’t expect a visual highlight, because the game relies on old-school pixel optics.

To do this, you travel through six different regions, each of which represents a social class in terms of appearance and residents. Of course there is also fighting, and this is where it gets strategic: You don’t just hit with the sword, you also have to throw your companion, a magic dice, around. Depending on the number you roll, you can draw ability cards from your deck.
