by Rainier on Aug. 26, 2016 @ 8:43 a.m. PDT

The Silver Case is an adventure game where a string of serial murders is terrorizing the nation, and you, as a member of a special police unit, have to investigate.

1999 - the "24 Wards". A string of mysterious serial killings plagues the city.
The detectives of the 24 Wards Heinous Crimes Unit have their eyes on one man: Kamui Uehara, legendary serial killer and assassin of a number of government officials 20 years prior in the now-famous "Silver Case". However, nobody knows the true identity of Kamui.

Has he really returned? Who is this infamous serial killer?

The player takes control of the protagonist, a member of the Special Forces Unit “Republic”, from a first-person perspective. The game takes inspiration from the adventure and novel genres, leading the player through an in-depth story in which the truth is gradually revealed as they solve various puzzles, offering a fresh and unique experience.

The Silver Case Remastered for PC will be exhibited at PAX West in Seattle, America from the 2nd–5th of September. At PAX West, visitors will be able to play the beginning of the game’s second chapter “Spectrum”. This will be the first ever opportunity to play the “Spectrum” scenario from the HD Remaster version on PC.
