Every witness is lying in this upcoming Korean mystery adventure game
South Korean indie developer Somi opened the official Steam store page for their upcoming detective game No Case should Remain Unsolved on November 22. The game will be available in English.
No Case should Remain Unsolved is a point and click mystery adventure game in which you pursue and piece together memory fragments to solve a long-forgotten unsolved case. You play as former police detective Jeon Gyeong, searching for clues and witnesses related to the case of a girl who went missing. The girl, Seowon, disappeared twelve years ago, and after an unsuccessful police investigation, the case was closed. As you gather testimonies from witnesses, you realize that everyone involved was lying.
The characters in Seowon’s vicinity all seem to have certain circumstances for lying about the case. Looking at the in-game screenshots, there appears to be a character pleading guilty, as well as statements that hint at a problematic relationship between Seowon and her mother. There seems to be a lot to unpack in the case.
While details regarding gameplay have yet to be revealed, the Steam page description boasts of an imaginative deduction system that works by connecting memory fragments like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. The game will have you uncover passcodes, keys and 52 conversations, leading to two possible endings.
The creator of No Case should Remain Unsolved is South Korean developer Somi, which has previously released the “Guilty Trilogy,” containing the novel game Replica, the police investigation game Legal Dungeon and The Wake, a game in which you decipher a journal and explore a generational curse.
No Case should Remain Unsolved is scheduled for release in the first quarter of 2024 for the PC (Steam).
