E-One Studio have confirmed that they will be releasing, Hoodwink, a brand new adventure game for PC in Europe. The game is set in the future in which the world is ruled by the last surviving corporate giant. With parodies of advertising, political propaganda and corruption, Hoodwink has a twisted dark humour set in a colourful dystopia, enhanced by a soundtrack by award-winning composer Leon Willett.
In Hoodwink players assume the role of Michael Bezzle, a smart-mouthed bumbling scoundrel seeking to turn over a new leaf and settle down with his girlfriend. However his luck takes a turn for the worse when his final caper lands him in trouble with the government and he must rely on his wits as he gets further enmeshed in the machinations of the state.
In its portrayal of the decaying metropolis of Global-01, Hoodwink takes a sideways look at the classic genre of film noir. Using an intuitive point and click interface, you explore the city, populated by all manner of colourful characters, each with their own quirky plans, who will help or hinder as you solve challenging puzzles to seek out the truth behind the world’s last corporation.
Hoodwink will be available on PC at the end of June, priced at £14.99. Translated text versions in German, French, Simplified Chinese, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian will also be available at launch. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details about Hoodwink.
