Spooky Dorway today announced that the Kickstarter campaign for The Darkside Detective: Season 2 has been fully funded. With three days to go before the campaign ends, the 2nd season of the point and click adventure series is expected to launch on Nintendo Switch in 2020.
Where cultists crawl, where demons dwell, where the occult… occults? – this is where you’ll find Detective Francis McQueen of the criminally underfunded Darkside Division. When evil darkens the doorsteps of Twin Lakes City – hell, even when it loiters around shop fronts – he’s there, ready to investigate the cases that nobody else will. He is The Darkside Detective.
You may have thought the spooky goings on in Twin Lakes ended with the final case in critically acclaimed first Season, but things are about to get a whole lot weirder with a new season of paranormal mysteries to investigate.
The Darkside Detective is a classic point and click adventure game with a distinct sense of humour. Season 1 came with six cases and had three extra cases added post launch. Season 2 will also contain six cases, each containing around 45 minutes of adventuring fun, quips, clicks, and devilish tricks, as well as a host of ’80s and ’90s pop culture references.
Developer and conjurer of the dark arts, Spooky Doorway, was looking for just €35,000 to help bring the sequel to life with a Kickstarter, and now it’s fully funded and the machines are whirring into life in the Spooky Doorway lab.
Of course, the thing about opening portals is that you can always open them a little further. Offer up more coin at the altar of Spooky Doorway and the developer will get to work on the first stretch goal: The Darkside Detective Anthology.
The Darkside Detective Anthology will give you a glimpse through the looking glass, into the lives of other Twin Lakes residents. These short shorts will let you live a day in the life of other characters you met in Season 1, including the Bloodwolves, Ghouley and McScream, and Raxa.
