Hauma – A Detective Noir Story Coming This Autumn

Former detective Judith comes out of retirement to investigate the upper class in upcoming Hauma - A Detective Noir Story.

Tsk tsk, news about Hauma – A Detective Noir Story was supposed to have shown up on the site last week, but I had a few beers, and this was sidetracked for a bit. Let’s catch up, shall we?

From SenAm Games and Assemble Entertainment, this detective title follows former detective Judith as she emerges from retirement and investigates some dodgy goings on in society’s upper class. Think Eyes Wide Shut, but less rude.

Key features in Hauma – A Detective Noir Story include:

  • More than Meets the Eye: Embark on a journey of deduction and intrigue, uncover the secrets of Munich’s elite fascist society, and piece together the puzzle of the conspiracy that lies within
  • Enter the Mind Palace: Become acquainted with the mindboard, an innovative inventory of interconnected items and thoughts that, when weaved together correctly, uncover clues and unravel mysteries 
  • Draw Your Own Conclusions: Utilize engaging investigation mechanics, including a variety of puzzles and challenging dialogue riddles
  • Comic-Inspired Storytelling: Exhibited in vibrant, graphic-novel-styled art, Hauma visually engages you in a gripping story and doesn’t let you go until you’ve unearthed every last conspiracy
  • Hear Me Out: Hauma features a fully voiced cinematic adventure, featuring a diverse cast and evocative characters 

Here’s the announcement trailer:

Hauma – A Detective Noir Story is coming to PC (Steam and Itch.io) and the Nintendo Switch in Autumn 2023. A demo is currently available on Steam (I’ve played it, and it’s very promising).
