Lord Winklebottom Investigates - a game found in Kickstarter

September 13, 2022 | Games

If you haven't heard about this game, it's a point-and-click adventure game that was recently released. It was originally started on Kickstarter. It's a murder mystery that takes place in the 1920s. When we first saw the Kickstarter page, it became obvious that we needed to back that game. And actually, now my fiancé's name is in the game credits which was fun to see.

It was also super interesting to follow the game's development process. You can still see how the graphics have changed if you check out the Kickstarter page and compare it to the released game. At least to my eyes, they made many good visual improvements. And on that page, there is also a lot more information about the game and the developer. 

Visuals, character design, and all the good stuff

The game looks charming and I really enjoy the design style. I also love that all the characters are different animals. The main characters are Lord Winklebottom, who is a giraffe, and Doctor Frumple, who is a hippo. Just seeing Lord Winklebottom's cute face makes me instantly happier. I might have kept the game graphics open while writing this post.

The voice acting was fantastic and I like how each of the characters has their own thing. You could see that the characters had been well planned. There is also a lot of humor in the dialogue, I've laughed out loud more than once.

Game difficulty

The game itself isn't super complicated, though we did have a little bit of trouble in a couple of spots. But it wasn't frustratingly hard, at least for us. It took us about 6 hours to play it through. I've read some comments that the game doesn't have enough detective work, but for me, the game was just great. The game scratched the point-and-click itch perfectly. I will need to replay the story to get the remaining achievements, but I also just want to hear the characters again. My favorite part of the game was definitely the characters.

If you enjoy point-and-click games, I definitely recommend getting to know Lord Winklebottom and all the other amazing characters. And based on the game reviews on Steam, I'm not the only one who recommends the game.
