Mozart, Murder, and Maybelline abound online

If you've been wondering all about the upcoming murder mystery Art of Murder: FBI Confidential, the historical conspiracy thriller Mozart, or the lighthearted escapades of So Blonde, now you don't need to speak other languages to do it, as all three now have official websites available in English.

In Art of Murder: FBI Confidential, a gritty mystery out of Poland that should remind many of Still Life, players are cast in the role of young FBI agent Nicole Bonnet. When wealthy citizens of New York are brutally killed and have their hearts removed by a mysterious instrument, Nicole soon finds herself responsible for an investigation she is far too inexperienced to deserve. For more illumination (and you'll need it when you get there), check out the game's website.

Mozart puts players in the role of the musical genius himself, but not to make beautiful music. In Prague after launching his latest masterpiece opera, Mozart unwittingly becomes caught up in a sinister plot against his benefactor, and must overcome the conspiracy that involves both murder and the occult. For further information, or just to bask in the music, check out the Mozart site.

For those who prefer bright and colourful to dark and disturbing, So Blonde puts players in the fashionable shoes of young Sunny Blonde. Sunny's ocean cruise is abruptly ended by a storm that not only deposits her on a tropical island and robs her of all her luxury items, but transports her back to the days of pirates in the process. The So Blonde website has all the details. (Note: the somewhat inconspicuous translation flags are in the upper right.)
