Hi, this is Djamil Kemal at Lexis Numérique and I’m glad to give you more details about Red Johnson’s Chronicles for PlayStation Network. You can check it out today on the PlayStation Store (with a 2-week exclusivity for PlayStation Plus members and a 50% discount).
For those of you who are into investigation games and who like noir crime movies, Red Johnson’s Chronicles is for you. We really tried to create a new genre with a mix of classic adventure and innovating gameplay. In this 8 to 10 hour long adventure, you’ll have to solve the murder of one of most hated men in town. Explore dark worlds, find, analyze and use clues that will lead you to the truth. Question suspects, spot their lies, push them over the edge and, when necessary confront them in quick fire action scenes.
If you’re only into first person shooters, Red Johnson’s Chronicles is not for you. But at Lexis Numérique, we believe there is a real opportunity for bringing puzzles to the PlayStation in a very smooth way. In Red Johnson’s Chronicles, you’ll have to crack many different puzzles during the course of your investigation. We worked really hard to make sure they perfectly fit the script so that you always feel immersed. To add this feeling of immersion, we also tried our best to do a “tactile” game. At many occasions, you’ll have to move objects in 3D and, handle them and see how to use them.
Red Johnson’s Chronicles is set in a very unique atmosphere with a quality of 3D environments rarely seen before on PlayStation Network. In Metropolis City, capital of crime, you’ll discover a world in which everything is dark, sharp and deadly. Even humor.
And last but not least: at Lexis Numérique, we decided to make a bet. We believe that price is always an issue but we also think that downloadable content doesn’t mean cheap content. Hence we decided to offer you 8 to 10 hours of unique and immersive gameplay at only $12.99. We worked more than a year to achieve it, spent more than 3 additional months to tune it. And as an independent developer, we preferred spending as much as possible in the game development than in marketing. Hence, if you like the game, please tell your friends :)
