Lexis Numerique has today released several screenshots from its upcoming PSN title, Red Johnson. Though the debut trailer looked spiffing, bringing back memories of Pandemic’s 2009 Parisian sandbox shootout, The Saboteur, there was a noticeable lack of gameplay.
It appears, like most detective games, that Red Johnson will be a point-and-click adventure, though taking place in the gritty underbelly of a fictitious city. Using an on-screen cursor we assume that players will have to scour the individual scenes and locations for clues which can then be compiled in order to produce rock-solid evidence.
It’s a little more Blue Toad than L.A. Noire, but if it turns out to be anything like Ace Attorney or Broken Sword, Tuffcub will surely need another lay down.
