Knee Deep, a “swamp noir” from Prologue Games, will be released for the PS4 and Xbox One in a few weeks.
According to a recent tweet by the developer, the adventure game will be available to download for the PS4 on January 31. Meanwhile, an Xbox Games Store listing has confirmed that Knee Deep will make its Xbox One debut on February 3.
When a washed-up actor hangs himself on location, a spotlight is cast on the backwater Florida town of Cypress Knee. Knee Deep is a crime thriller where choices matter as you investigate this mysterious suicide. Your screen becomes a stage as you investigate as three distinct characters: cheeky blogger Romana Teague, down-and-out local reporter Jack Bellet, and cynical private investigator K.C. Gaddis. Use your skills of observation, deduction, and cleverness to pull back the curtain and reveal the true story behind this swampland conspiracy. Experience a magical reality where characters are transported among scenes, set pieces moved into place, and music wafts from the orchestra pit. Knee Deep is about characters, storytelling, and the melodrama of swampland Florida.
Knee Deep was originally released for the PC last year, and we got a chance to try it out at PAX East 2016. The murder mystery’s “theatrical presentation” and Telltale-like choices were definitely a highlight of the convention.
