Develop:Brighton Indie Showcase finalists D’Avekki Studios, best known for games consisting entirely of Full Motion Video, have today revealed their next game will be an infinitely replayable murder mystery set in a procedurally generated 3D art gallery.

Murderous Muses lets players explore a cursed gallery where mysterious rooms appear at night and portraits come to life - exposing conversations and events that took place before the murder of controversial artist Mordechai Grey.

“It’s been a lifelong dream to create an FMV adventure in a 3D environment, ever since playing Under a Killing Moon and Phantasmagoria in the 90s,” said D’Avekki Studios director, Tim Cowles, “So we’re excited to bring our other-worldly stories to life in a new setting, and hoping to deliver an equivalent VR experience too.”

The announcement is accompanied by a teaser trailer and a Steam page where players can wishlist the game, with release expected on PC and consoles in late 2022.
