Poirot investigates again on PC

Third instalment in the Agatha Christie adventure series announced.

The Adventure Company will be continuing its series of game remakes of classic Agatha Christie mystery novels with Evil Under the Sun.

The story will feature famous fictional Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, who is tasked with investigating the murder of a popular actress on a stunning tropical island. Poirot will interview more than 20 unique characters who all had some kind of ties with the actress and scour the island for clues.

The latest game will feature a number of improvements and added gameplay elements, which have been made as a response to player feedback. These include a new inventory system, dialogue choices that impact events, less repetition in sleuthing, and more diverse environments to explore.

Whereas the last Agatha Christie adventure game, Agatha Christie: Murder on the Orient Express, featured Hercule Poirot as a non-playable character, in this game players will be able to step into his shoes.

AWE Games, the company that worked on the previous two Agatha Christie games, will also be developing this one. The game is likely to receive a T for Teen rating under ESRB, and 12+ under PEGI ratings. Agatha Christie: Evil Under the Sun will be Windows Vista compatible.

Well an announcement in The Adventure Company website when they signed David Suchet for the voice role of Poirot in Murder on The Orient Express said that he signed for 3 upcoming games, so i would say that yes he will be lending his voice again.

I applaud everyone who brought up David Suchet (that guy is phenomenal in just about everything he is in). I'm so glad that there are starting to be more adventure games (some of the old ones like Transylvania, Oo-Topos and Talisman were fantastic).

Great news, we need more adventure games coming from the huge source such as Agatha Christie. Poirot is a great character, I hope David Suchet reprises his role.

I've always been interested in her stories but could never truly get into them. Are the games any good? I've found a couple in the bargin bin at BestBuy recently and hesitated..

I'm a big fan of the tv series, not so sure if they can make a decent game out of it though?
