The Last Case Of Benedict Fox immerses players in an atmospheric gothic world filled with exploration, puzzles, platforming and intense combat.

The Last Case Of Benedict Foxis a 2D side scrolling mystery, combining classic feel of Metroidvanias with challenging combat from Souls-likes.

Fans of tough action-adventure games as well as engaging, emotional storytelling will be right at home in the twisted world of Limbo as they uncover the grim fate of the family that once occupied the house and their missing child. Players will need to make use of their weapons, traversal abilities, and even the environment around them in combat against demonic forces, and an occult order that preys upon them as they venture into Limbo and the depths of the mansion.

In 1925 Boston, self-proclaimed detective Benedict Fox must uncover the fate of a family while traversing a dark, eerie world of emotions made manifest while battling the demon trapped inside his own body. Face an occult order and filthy demons in tactical and rewarding combat, explore the realm of the arcane, and unravel the disturbing secrets of a tragic family.
