100% funded! (now to talk about stretch goals...)




We made it, chums, and with 72 hours remaining! Looks like we’re going hunting for Dooley!

We want to thank you from the bottom of the cursed well where we’ve hidden our hearts. We’re so pleased with the support we’ve gotten here, on social media and on our discord . We have announced a bonus case stretch goal (info below) but whatever happens from here on out, we’re very happy and excited to start - in fact, we already have. Cases are being blueprinted, scene pixelated and jokes are percolating. Anyway, onto the stretch goal case:





Stretch Goal Case: The Darkside Detective Anthology

McQueen and Dooley aren't the only people in Twin Lakes and they certainly aren't the only ones living interesting lives. The anthology case consists of a number of short shorts focused on a day in the life of other characters you've met in Season 1 – The Bloodwolves, Ghouley and McScream, and Raxa.


So, if that tickles your fancy, there’s still time to bump up your pledge and share the
kickstarter on social media. Remember, every time a person pledges, an angel gets its wings (or something).

Stay Tangible,
Spooky Doorway

“...one of the most entertaining and rewarding points and click games I've ever played.”
9 – Richard Seagrave - GameSpew

“It may be a self-described “micro-adventure” game, but despite its simple style and presentation, The Darkside Detective has a lot of heart”
Chloi Rad - IGN

“...so many of the jokes land that playing is like having dinner with a well-oiled double act.”
Adam Smith - Rock, Paper, Shotgun

About This Game

Where cultists crawl, where demons dwell, where the occult… occults? *ahem* That's where you’ll find Detective Francis McQueen, the lead investigator of the criminally underfunded Darkside Division. When evil darkens the doorsteps of Twin Lakes City – hell, even when it just loiters around shop fronts or hangs out in shady alleyways – he’s there, ready to investigate the cases that nobody else will.
He is The Darkside Detective.

The Darkside Detective is a micro-adventure game with a distinct sense of humour. It’s available on PC, Mac & Linux and consists of a series of humorous bite-size investigations into the occult and extraordinary. It features:

- 6 cases, each more spooky than the last
- **BONUS 7TH CASE ADDED TO THE GAME, CHRISTMAS 2017!**
- **BONUS 8TH CASE ADDED TO THE GAME (though it's a short short)**
- **BONUS 9TH CASE ADDED TO THE GAME, SEASON 1 FINALE!**
- Music from Ben Prunty, the audiomancer behind gems such as FTL and Gravity Ghost
- At least three jokes
- Cutting edge, high definition pixels
- One free curse-removal, up to and including mid-level witch hexes
