June 22nd, 2021 – Publisher Pixmain and independent animation and development studio Darjeeling today announced the PC launch of charming puzzle game Labyrinth City: Pierre the Maze Detective, available now on Steam. Based on the ‘Pierre the Maze Detective’ comic books by Japanese artist Hirofumi Kamigaki and illustration studio IC4DESIGN, the game puts players in the shoes of young detective Pierre as he tracks down the slippery Mr X. The intricate, hand-drawn environments are packed with intriguing characters and secret treats to delight players of all ages.
Check out the new launch trailer produced by the team at Darjeeling:
Following hot on the heels of its PC launch, the game is coming to Nintendo Switch on July 15th, and Android and iOS devices in Q3 2021. The game is priced at $11.99 / €11.99 on Steam and Nintendo Switch, with a Steam launch discount of 17% until July 8th, and a Nintendo eShop pre-order discount from July 8th to 15th.
“Where is he? There! Quick, after him!” The elaborate environments from the hand of artist Hirofumi Kamigaki are the colourful stage for a marathon chase, which is as much about enjoying the scenery as ensnaring the prey. The magical Maze Stone has been swiped from Opera City’s museum by Mr X, and young hero Pierre answers the call to track him down. Each maze that Pierre has to navigate is littered with hidden secrets, minigames, and dozens of fun interactions with a dazzling variety of citizens.
Born from the affection the Darjeeling team has for the internationally-published book series, the game has already won awards including the IndieCade 2020 Visual Design award and the Game Connection Asia 2020 Best Quality of Art award.
