It's time for amateur detectives to make use of their little grey cells, as The Adventure Company today released a playable demo of the classic whodunit, Agatha Christie: Murder on the Orient Express.
In this second Christie adaptation by AWE Games, players control a brand new character named Antoinette Marceau. Antoinette is a representative of the train company, en route to Paris aboard the luxurious Orient Express along with famed Belgian detective Hercule Poirot. When one of the passengers is brutally murdered and the train stopped abruptly by a snowy avalanche, everyone on board becomes a suspect, and it's up to the player to guide Antoinette through her investigation. Poirot himself becomes injured and bedridden, but is available for help and offers his expertise when necessary.
The demo begins with the train being stopped in its tracks (literally) and Antoinette learning of the murder in an abbreviated version of events taken from the full game.
At almost 300 MB in size, the demo is fairly large, and can be found at standard download sites like WorthPlaying and 3DGamers.
