OverviewOverview

The Sexy Brutale is a time-loop adventure puzzle where you explore a mansion stuck in the same day as its inhabitants are being killed off.

You wake up during a party to discover that the other party members are stuck in over a 12-hour period, reliving their deaths over and over again. Your task is to figure out how to change time and save the party goers. You hunt down clues, recipes, and items to prevent the deaths. Each time you save someone they give you their mask that grants special powers and a new way to intervene in the other deaths.

Play involves running around the mansion, interacting with items, hiding in furniture and listening in on conversations. Each murder is in its own location that comes with a series of pithy clues to unravel. You need to work out how to use the environment to stop the deaths. Perhaps you'll put blank bullets in a gun, pick a lock, hide a lighter, switch items or call on characters to change their location.

The result is a snarky, tongue in cheek, murder mystery game. It's a Agatha Christie novel combined with an intricate clockwork vignette.

Rated PEGI 12 for frequent scenes of mild violence, infrequent use of mildly offensive language and scenes that younger players may find disturbing. Violence consists of players reliving murder scenes over and over, trying to change their outcome. Murders are committed in a variety of ways but are non-realistic or minor in nature with exaggerated blood effects. No injuries or gruesome details are depicted but younger audiences may find the scenes disturbing. Mild language is often heard and includes such words as ‘*!@?*’ or ‘bloody’.
