Jekyll & Hyde, a new PC adventure based on the famous novel, ‘The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,’ by Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson.

 Set in London during the 19th century, the game features a young Dr. Jekyll, who seeks a cure for the plague but instead unwittingly creates a potion that awakens his dark alter ego, Mr. Hyde. Alternating between the roles of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, players will search for an antidote to the epidemic while slowly uncovering a conspiracy involving an occult sect. The investigation will lead players deeper and deeper into London’s mysterious underworld.

 In addition to classic adventure gameplay, Jekyll & Hyde will also have action- and skill-based elements. Alternating between the two protagonists, players will have to utilize each character’s attributes to solve the thrilling riddles, puzzles, and action-oriented challenges. An adaptive camera adjusts to the players’ situation, changing to allow for easier control during platforming portions. Players will also have access to a mobile chemistry lab to create the transformation potion at any time. The lab will prove to be vital to solving puzzles.
