Sequel to 2019 assassination cover-up puzzler coming to Windows, Mac and Linux on Steam
The government sure is doing a lot of killing these days! No, this isn’t a highly charged political statement, but rather a reflection that there are so many officially sanctioned dead bodies lying around that we need a second game just to clean them all up in the form of Blyts’s upcoming Nobodies: After Death.
In 2019, the original Nobodies (later subtitled Murder Cleaner) gave players their first opportunity to clean up after assassinations performed by a “top-secret intelligence agency.” Not the sexiest of jobs, but a crucial one in order to “hide the bodies, destroy the evidence, and leave no trace you were ever there.” Those same skills will be required once again as the organization has begun “taking out rogue members of your own ranks, who have defected with information on a bioweapon that threatens global security.” Secrecy is paramount, so in order to succeed you’ll need to “use your wits and resourcefulness to make sure your agency’s actions remain hidden.”
As with its predecessor, After Death is a hand-painted, first-person slideshow-styled adventure with “over 100 hand-drawn scenes to search and explore.” With “many” new murders to cover up over the course of the game, you’ll need to think more like an investigator than a janitor, using “everything at your disposal to hide the evidence.” Not only must you plan strategically, there are plenty of puzzles to solve as well, depending on the current mission, ranging from “classic inventory puzzles to unique mind-bending tasks.” You can approach your assignments however you wish, but be forewarned that with only a single solution, there are “many creative ways to fail each mission, sometimes spectacularly.”
It’s too early for a release date just yet, but Nobodies: After Death is currently scheduled to be launched on Steam for Windows, Mac and Linux sometime before the end of this year.
