Mystery fans waiting for their next spy thriller fix don't have to wait any longer, as The Paris Dossier, a new film noir-inspired adventure game, is now available on mobile devices.
Set in Occupied France at the height of World War II, The Paris Dossier puts players in the shoes of Artemis, a British spy tasked with tracking down one of his own countrymen, a traitor now working for the Nazi regime. The first order of business was to meet with a member of the famed French Resistance, but the mysterious contact was forced to flee before the rendezvous, leaving you to follow the clues he left scattered throughout the war-torn city streets. This new mission proves to be a dangerous affair, however, plunging you headfirst into a cat-and-mouse game with the very traitor you were sent to find.
The first effort by British father-and-son development team Lexica Games, The Paris Dossier promises players an atmospheric first-person adventure presented entirely in black-and-white and featuring music that will "transport players back to 1940s Paris." Along the way, you will encounter a number of challenging puzzles, one of which is teased in the game’s launch trailer. A hint system will be available, however, should any puzzle prove to be too daunting to overcome.
Designed for tablets and phones, The Paris Dossier is available now exclusively on iOS and Android devices. The first level is free to download from both the App Store and Google Play, with an in-app purchase option to unlock the full game.
