Solve a Tropical Mystery in the Newest Theme for CLUE

Grab your swim trunks!

London, November 12th, 2019 - Marmalade Game Studio along with Hasbro, Inc. whisks players away on a wonderful Tropical Mystery in the tenth theme for CLUE/CLUEDO on iOS, Android, Steam and Nintendo Switch.

CLUE/CLUEDO is the quintessential murder mystery classic in which you use your deduction and crime-solving skills to unravel who committed the heinous murder, with which weapon and where. Marmalade Game Studio’s official adaptation for consoles, PC, and mobile captures the undeniable charm of the original and brings it to life effortlessly on your screens.

In the new theme, Tropical Mystery, experience a completely fresh environment with a wholly redesigned board and nine brand-new luxurious rooms on an extravagant mega yacht. As you solve the crime, you move through lavish rooms such as the grand deck with its helipad and exclusive private bar and the enchanting underwater observation room where Dr. Black might still be sleeping with the fish.

Cristina Mereuta, COO at Marmalade Game Studio, says: “With Tropical Mystery we’ve taken the classic board game into a 21st-century setting, capturing the opulent lifestyle of the rich, famous and influential as well as the corruption behind the smoke-screen. However, we're staying true to the spirit of the traditional mystery by having the crime take place in an isolated, confined space, which means the murderer cannot run.”

Six new, mysterious suspects join the classic CLUE/CLUEDO line-up. Scarlett as the corrupt politician, White as the business-minded captain, and Mustard as the ruthless hedge fund manager.

CEO of Marmalade Game Studios, Christopher Willis, adds: “To commemorate the release of the tenth theme, we wanted to give our detectives something special and decided to take them on a glamorous cruise. Our artists brought the luxurious world of billionaire Black and his corrupt consorts to life and we are certain fans of the series will enjoy this much-requested theme.”

Tropical Mystery is the latest gorgeous theme for the popular digital adaptation of CLUE/CLUEDO. It joins a line up well-loved themes such as the Sherlock theme, where players get to tread in the footsteps of the famous English master detective, and Murder Express, which whisks players away on a mysterious train journey to find the truth.

The Tropical Mystery theme is available for CLUE/CLUEDO on Nintendo Switch, Steam, iOS, and Android as part of the Season Pass, which includes access to all previous nine themes, for 34.99 USD/ 39.99 EUR on mobile and Steam, or 9.99 USD/ 9.99 EUR on Nintendo Switch. It is also available as a separate add-on to the game for 6.99 USD/ 7.99 EUR on mobile.

Robert Kirkman’s Thief of Thieves: Season One out now for Switch

Based on the award-winning comic book series

Los Angeles, November 12, 2019 - Rival Games, the critically acclaimed developer behind Alien: Blackout, and multiplatform entertainment company Skybound Entertainment are happy to announce that Thief of Thieves: Season One is available now on the eShop for Nintendo Switch for $19.99 / £17.99 / €19.99. Thief of Thieves: Season One lets users play as burglar Celia using stealth, social engineering and assistance from your team to pull off some high profile heists across the world. Originally divided into four volumes and released separately on Steam and Xbox One, the entire anthology is available at launch for Nintendo Switch.

Based on the award winning comic book series by Robert Kirkman, Thief of Thieves: Season One tells the story of Celia, the protege of the infamous thief Conrad “Redmond” Paulson, as she joins a new team of criminals and progresses from an apprentice swindler to a master thief. For every heist you must plan with your team, sneak your way in, react to any obstacles you face, and escape using stealth and cunning - after all, violence is what separates thieves from thugs. Get to know your team and plan your approach on the field. But be careful: the choices you make will shape the narrative and may have drastic consequences on how it unfolds.

“Working with Robert Kirkman’s IP and Skybound has given our team an incredible base to further expand this fascinating world,” said Jukka Laakso, CEO of Rival Games. “We’re particularly happy to bring this story to Nintendo Switch, as just like a great comic, it can be enjoyed at home, on the train, or anywhere else you want to be immersed in this seductive world of thievery!”

Thief of Thieves: Season One is developed by the Finnish independent studio Rival Games in partnership with Skybound Entertainment. The story transitions between comic frames and gameplay, as Celia makes her way through scenes ranging from cocktail parties to construction yards by using her skills in social engineering and stealth. The unique visual style of 2D hand drawn comics and 3D environments combine into one seamlessly flowing story experience. Shawn Martinbrough, the artist behind the Thief of Thieves: Season One comic, provided concepts behind many of the new living breathing characters brought to life by such voice actors like Fryda Wolff (Mass Effect: Andromeda), Stephen Stanton (Rogue One), Emily O’Brien (Death Stranding), Cissy Jones (Firewatch, The Walking Dead: Season 1), Fred Tatasciore (Kung-Fu Panda 2), and Elias Toufexis (Deus Ex: Human Revolution).
