Through Talespinners and working with Blazing Griffin, I acted as a story and narrative design consultant for the Scottish BAFTA Award-winning computer mystery game developed in collaboration with Agatha Christie Limited.
Hercule Poirot: The First Cases is a detective and adventure game starring Hercule Poirot in one of his first cases before he became the legendary detective we know. This is an all-new crime story written exclusively for the game.
In his early years as a detective, Hercule Poirot is invited to a reception by the influential Van den Bosch family to announce their daughter’s engagement. But tensions amongst the guests run high as a snowstorm descends on the town, trapping everyone inside the manor. The happy event is soon marred by the murder of one of the guests.
In the right place at the right time, Poirot immediately begins to investigate. What buried secrets and deadly rivalries will he uncover?
