In the Jimi Hendrix Case only you, Detective Jimi Hendrix can solve the mysterious murder of Jimi Hendrix, with a crazy cast of characters from Officer Jimi Hendrix, to secretary Jimi Hendrix, to fishmonger Jimi Hendrix there to help and hinder you on your way. In case you hadn’t guessed, in The Jimi Hendrix Case, everyone is Jimi Hendrix.
3 guesses who the killer is. (If I get a single spoiler complaint I will bombard you with Jimi Hendrix pictures)
The Jimi Hendrix Case is a new short point-and-click adventure game made for the latest Monthly Adventure Game jam, the prompt for which, funnily enough, was Hendrix. And one of the rules was that the game must relate to fish in some way. I won’t go into detail but let me just say that I truly admire the way the creators of the game, Benjamin Penney and K.Williams, took these rules to heart.
The game itself looks great in an 8-bit style, and is actually fairly creative with the character design which is an admirable achievement considering the fact that everyone is Jimi Hendrix; if you’ve ever been curious to see Jimi Hendrix dressed as a secretary in pink glasses with indescribable sass, it’s unlikely your curiosity will be sated anywhere else. There’s mystery solving, puzzles, shootouts, a sea of fish puns, what more could you want? One word of warning: there will be moments where you will have to act quickly and the trackpad on a laptop is just not up to the task. Do not let the Jimi Hendrixi (Hendrixes? Hendri?) down, plug in a mouse.
The game is free to download here.
Sorry, I hadn’t typed it in a while.
