Murdered: Soul Suspect aims high with cinematic story and investigative gameplay (video interview)

Square Enix has come up with a great original game in Murdered: Soul Suspect.

Airtight Games is developing Murdered for release on unnamed next-generation platforms early next year. Eric Studer, the senior design producer, said in an interview with GamesBeat said it was thrilling to work on a new intellectual property with a unique story. You play the ghost of a murdered detective who can only find peace by finding his killer and bringing him to justice. It is a creative title that blends a detective mystery with a scary ghost tale.

At a time when the consoles are in transition, it is gratifying to see companies make a big bet on a cinematic game. Studer talked with out about the inspirations for the game and the unique detective style gameplay that distinguishes it.

Here’s our video interview with Studer.
