Agatha Christie fans and amateur sleuths will soon be making tracks in another whodunit, as The Adventure Company has recently released Murder on the Orient Express in North America.
Based on the renowned Christie novel, but offering a different solution to maintain the suspense for those familiar with the book, the new third-person, point-and-click adventure casts players in the role of a train employee, Antoinette Marceau. A fan of mysteries herself, Antoinette soon finds herself attempting to solve a shocking murder aboard the '30s-era luxury train bound for London from Istanbul. Fortunately, one of passengers from among the game's 25 different characters is none other than Hercule Poirot, who will guide Antoinette throughout her investigation. Poirot is voiced by David Suchet, an actor widely acclaimed for his many television portrayals of the famed Belgian detective.
Helping players to quickly navigate the train, Murder on the Orient Express promises a handy map system that allows instant movement from one rail car to another. But when Antoinette must venture out of Orient Express, the treacherous weather conditions will provide an additional challenge to her investigation.
