'Homicide Detective' Voiced By Star Wars/Harry Potter Actor

by Rainier on May 25, 2017 @ 11:48 a.m. PDT

Homicide Detective is a first person 3D open world investigative epic has featured the full support of police, FBI and military special forces operators to ensure the utmost realism.

Homicide Detective is a unique opportunity to take on the role of a homicide specialist, traversing the globe for an elite United Nations unit, with a mandate to solve serious crime. Visit scores of iconic locations, from the London Eye to the Egyptian Pyramids, the teeming streets of Hong Kong to the steaming heat of Rio, and the hustle and bustle of Chicago.

A man lies dead in the street, a needle protruding from his neck - the first in a series of murders from a killer that spreads his dark tentacles of death around the world.

Where will the next murder be? Is every murder that you encounter in your role as a homicide detective linked? Surely these murders cannot be the work of one man? Surely your imagination is creating patterns and connections from the myriad of evidence and clues?

Apophenia – the human tendency to see patterns in random data? Or the work of a cold and calculating murderer hell bent on creating a trail of death crisscrossing the globe?

As a homicide detective it is for you to decide, and having decided, do you have the skills to bring the monstrous reign of carnage to an end and bring the perpetrator to justice?
