It's hard to pin point exactly where the point and click revival happened, but some might suggest that Blue Toad Murder Files had a lot to do with it. Originally a PSN exclusive, the murder mystery game is now heading to iOS.
Slated for release on April 11th, the game is an episodic adventure that sees you and up to three friends trying to solve a murder mystery in the sleepy village of Little Riddle. This new version has been, according to Relentless Software, built from scratch for mobile devices.
There'll be four mysteries for you to unravel, all presented in a charming cartoon way. Expect a mixture of Miss Marple style sleuthing and a lot of jokes too.
We've no word yet on price, but we'll keep you updated when we know more about what's happening. Whichever way you look at it though, there's going to be an awful lot of murders on April 11th.
