The Detail is a crime noir adventure set in a modern American city that combines the emotional impact of Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead crossed with the themes of a realistic crime drama like HBO’s The Wire.
Gameplay is centred around a bitter veteran detective investigating a brutal gangland murder and a reformed criminal trying to protect his family, the player is forced to make tough choices and deal with the resulting consequences of these moral dilemmas.
The graphic novel visual style is wonderful – creating a stylish and gritty city for you to explore, full of interesting characters. The Detail also promises multiple branching storylines affected by your decisions and multiple playable characters – allowing you to experience both sides of the law.
The Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead games influence is obvious in the Beta Demo, but it also shares a lot of DNA with Heavy Rain, offering up a dark storyline where everything you do has a consequence – whether it’s snap judgements made in the heat of the action or more considered investigative decisions.
The Detail is shaping up to be a wonderful blend of mature storylines, point & click gameplay, gritty crime drama, graphic novel noir style and real decisions. Well worth checking out.
