The Kickstarter demo for Lord Winklebottom Investigates features around 15 minutes of gameplay and offers a good taste of things to come. The artwork’s excellent, it’s all fully voice acted and the UI is very easy to use. The characters and animal based civilisation they live in are particular highlights and offer up lots of humorous moments – such as humans being thought of as dinosaur-like monsters that are now extinct. The puzzle design is very well done too, and requires some real investigating and searching for clues rather than just randomly combining objects together. See if you can get to the bottom of this Winklebottom mystery.
