'The Second Guest' Coming To North America

The Second Guest is an eerily atmospheric, episodic, point-and-click mystery game that delivers both hair-raising situations and laugh-out-loud moments.

“We have achieved continued success within the digital download sector and see episodic content as a key component of our long-term growth,” said Steve Milburn, Marketing Director of Meridian4.  “Utilizing the extremely popular point-and-click dynamic, The Second Guest offers a compelling story that is rolled out in accessible episodes like a top-rated TV series that leaves players eager to see what happens next.”

Graphically inspired by the works of famed director, Tim Burton, The Second Guest is a mystery crime adventure that takes place in 1920’s London.  Players assume the role of Jack Ice, a young student who receives a mysterious telegram inviting him to the reading of Lord Averton’s will at the old Grace Castle. There is only one problem: Jack didn’t know Averton. 

Upon arrival at the castle, a violent thunderstorm erupts and causes a massive landslide that effectively isolates the castle and its inhabitants from the outside world.  To make matters worse, it becomes evident that Lord Averton did not die of natural causes and that the heirs could be the next targets.  Alone amongst strangers and fearing for his life, Jack has no choice but to get to the bottom of things. If he wants to survive this night, he will have to unravel the mystery about Grace Castle and perhaps reveal details about his own past.

Second Guest episodic saga for PC will be available via digital download on Steam and other channels.
