Solve murders as a supernatural detective in Lucifer Within Us

Evidence: bloody footprints. That is literally all I needed to see in the trailer for Lucifer Within Us to pique my interest. I'm always up for a murder mystery, and there just aren't enough of 'em in games to suit me. 

The trailer for Lucifer Within Us debuted on IGN (opens in new tab)'s Summer of Games today, and you can watch it above. As you can see, you're no ordinary detective. You solve murders by following clues, examining evidence, and interrogating witnesses, but you've also got supernatural abilities to peer into alternate timelines and root out the truth.  Cool.

"No hidden plot twists, no QTEs, no random puzzles or mini-games, just you and the information," reads the game's Steam store page (opens in new tab). "Don’t just act like a detective -- BE a detective. Finding the murderer will require true understanding of the case, not just following the story."

Yes, I would like to do that, please. Lucifer Within Us is releasing later this year.

Chris started playing PC games in the 1980s, started writing about them in the early 2000s, and (finally) started getting paid to write about them in the late 2000s. Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
