Ever fancied stepping into the shoes of the legendary Hercule Poirot? Well now’s your chance, for Kalypso Media and Microids have officially released uber-mystery Agatha Christie – The ABC Murders.

The game is now out of a wide variety of platforms, and the official blurb on The ABC Murders reads as follows:

The first victim has been claimed, and now Kalypso Media and Microïds need your help to solve the mystery of Agatha Christie – The ABC Murders, out now on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, PC, Mac and Linux. Prepare to have your ‘little grey cells’ tested to the limit as you guide the iconic Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot through a complex web of puzzles and challenges. Set to be a treat for fans of the original novel and newcomers alike, Agatha Christie – The ABC Murders sees the colourful cast of classic characters, locations and crime scenes brought to life in stunning, cel-shaded 3D.

Adapted from the classic Agatha Christie novel of the same name, “Agatha Christie – The ABC Murders” is an adventure mystery game, offering sharp-minded gamers the opportunity to play as Christie’s famous fictional detective Hercule Poirot. Players will guide the famous detective as he attempts to unmask the elusive murderer known only as “A.B.C.” To solve the case, players will have to interview characters, gather evidence, and solve challenging puzzles in order to collect clues and piece together the mystery to bring the “A.B.C.” murderer to justice, all rendered stylishly in cel-shaded 3D.

Recognised in the Guinness World Book of Records as the most successful novelist of all time, Agatha Christie specialized in locked room thrillers and classic whodunit mysteries. Her 66 novels, 154 short stories and 19 plays have been translated worldwide into over 50 languages. And Then There Were None, Death on the Nile and Murder on the Orient Express are just some of the many titles that have been adapted for film and TV.
