The Sexy Brutale is a never-ending masked ball puzzle-and-adventure game featuring intrigue, murder and the quite-possibly occult.

Set during a single, endlessly-looping day within “The Sexy Brutale” – a stately English mansion converted into a bizarre casino and named by the enigmatic Marquis – players take on the role of elderly priest Lafcadio Boone.  To progress, Boone must hide, watch and learn the colorful stories of the other guests at the ball in order to save them from grisly deaths at the hands of the mansion’s staff.

By discovering the key moments and methods how each guest can be saved and gaining occult-seeming powers linked to their masks, Lafcadio is able to explore deeper and deeper into the mysteries of the mansion’s past and inhabitants to uncover the truth hidden at the heart of The Sexy Brutale.

Tequila Works  and Cavalier Game Studios are proud to announce that The Sexy Brutale is to come to Nintendo Switch on December 7th, 2017.

"We are very glad to bring The Sexy Brutale to Nintendo Switch as we think this title will please a lot of the Switch owners” said Raúl Rubio, CEO & Creative Director at Tequila Works. “This is a great adventure to see that our first published title has been so well received and can now be played on Switch”

“It's a dream come true to see our game released on a Nintendo platform, and we hope this flings open the doors of The Sexy Brutale for a whole new audience.” says Cavalier Game Studios design director Charles Griffiths.

Key Features:

  • Unique “Groundhog Day” puzzle concept – hours of gameplay exploring a single day from different perspectives and locations
  • Watch, listen and learn until you are ready to act to save each guest from murder
  • Multiple distinct areas of the mansion to explore, each with its own scenario, characters and puzzles
  • Darkly-humorous murder-mystery story spanning the entire mansion
  • Exotic cast of characters, including 9 guests
  • Acquire special powers by saving victims to progress deeper into the mansion and uncover the secret at the heart of The Sexy Brutale

The single-player, narrative-driven puzzle adventure is the debut of new UK developer Cavalier Game Studios who joined forces with Tequila Works in the Spanish studio's first ever co-production project. The concept was created by ex-Lionhead veteran Tom Lansdale and brothers Charles and James Griffiths, and an early build was shown to friends for responses and criticism, including creative director and CEO of Tequila Works, Raúl Rubio.
