The Detail, a crime noir adventure in a modern American city. Season 1 out now on Steam and iOS.

The Detail combines the emotional impact of Telltale Games' The Walking Dead with the themes of a realistic crime drama like HBO's The Wire, delivered with our own unique visual style inspired heavily by graphic novels. This is city where cases matter, clearance rates matter, and on a good day even justice matters.

Controlling the actions of 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 those moral dilemmas. The gameplay focuses on branching narrative mixed with interactive comics, and is completed by a professional audio track.

"EP1 does exactly what it should, grabs you right from the get-go and leaves you desperate for more." - 90/100, CalmDownTom

"Stylish and gripping, The Detail is brief but wonderful." - 90/100, 148Apps
