Detectives Wanted: Investigations Into Mysterious Suicide Case Begin on August 25, 2020
In case you missed the news, it’s time to don your detective cap! Publisher Assemble Entertainment announced an August 25, 2020 release date for the thrilling investigative full-motion video (FMV) game Jessika. Launching on Steam via Windows, Steam OS, Mac, and Linux, Jessika tasks you with cracking the case of a lifetime, uncovering the truths behind unanswered questions. Was it a suicide, or was the titular Jessika’s demise something far more sinister?
Those interested in getting an early glimpse into the tragic world of Jessika can now do so, as Assemble Entertainment has released a new demo of the game on Steam as part of the Steam Summer Sale, which runs until July 9th.
Additionally, Assemble today released a set of new in-game screenshots, which give you an even closer look at the kinds of things you’ll encounter while sifting through Jessika’s online presence — which seems innocent enough…at first. Will you be able to read between the lines and decipher her cryptic messages?
Also, players with a particular hankering for Assemble Entertainment’s fantastic titles will be pleased to know that the publisher also released demos for the humorously horrific, Lovecraft universe-inspired visual novel The Innsmouth Case, cyberpunk point-and-click adventure Encodya, and their post-apocalyptic survival RPG Highrisers.
