We spoke to Lesiakowski in our full The Last Case of Benedict Fox interview about how the game mixes together dark fantasy with adventure and Metroidvania elements with its inspirations ranging from noir pulp fiction to 20th century jazz. Our task is to look into the murders which took place within an old mansion. Benedict is a detective, and also happens to be bound to a demon with a bond that lets him explore the minds of the dead. The duo will be busy travelling between the real world and the world of limbo.

The gameplay above shows off a little combat and exploration, as well as how we'll use clues between the two worlds, and acquire new skills from the tattooist. The Last Case of Benedict Fox is set to launch into Xbox Game Pass in spring 2023 — which the devs say is a "huge deal for a small studio like ours". Will you be playing it on day one?
