About The Darkside Detective
Detective Francis McQueen is 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. After an original release on PC, Mac, Linux and Ouija boards in 2017, this classic point-and-click adventure game is landing on Nintendo Switch this 7th February.
About Spooky Doorway
The game was born at the Galway Game Jam in November 2014, with the original demo created in under 8 hours. The short prototype proved to be quite popular after it was posted online, convincing the team that there was life in creating an extended game. Dave & Tracey McCabe joined the team as writer and programmer respectively while travelling the world, with Ben Prunty coming onboard as a composer. Spooky Doorway was born.
