Reviews

“I got hooked on Lord Winklebottom Investigates for its utterly nonsensical premise, impressive plot, and barrage of chuckle-worthy jokes and puns, the kind of British humor not often seen in today’s gaming scene. Lord Winklebottom Investigates is comedic gaming done right.”
8/10 – Way Too Many Games

“You will chuckle at the dialogue, feel joy at solving the problems, and be surprised as the plot thickens. The story is told with an abundance of dry British wit and dark humour”
4.5/5 – The Xbox Hub

“The artstyle for the game is also beautiful, with each character and backdrop having been hand painted. It's like you're playing a combination of children's picture book and a Sherlock Holmes novel”
Eurogamer
