The Dead Flowers Case Looks Like An Intriguing Steampunk Murder Mystery


Recommended Videos


Independent developer Mando Productions are working on a steampunk adventure game, titled The Dead Flowers Case, which is slated for release on PC, Mac and tablets. The game, being funded via Kickstarter, has a funding goal of $290,000.


The Dead Flowers Case takes place in an alternate steampunk reality where flowers and plants have been long extinct, and the world “runs to (apparent) mechanical perfection”. No plant life has been seen in ages, and the world revolves around mechanical organization.


The notion of this perfect technological world order is challenged when a senior employee at a car factory is found murdered at his desk, with the only clue being the flowers placed by his side. The player then takes on the role of a detective, exploring the game’s world and trying to solve the murder case.


The Dead Flowers Case’s world is designed by steampunk sculptor and artist Stéphane Halleux. Also on the game’s design team is Olivier Fonenay, who produced the classic point-and-click adventure game Syberia with Benoit Sokal. You can learn more about the game on its Kickstarter page.
