The Sexy Brutale is the first co-production between RiME creator Tequila Works and UK-based developer Cavalier Game Studios.
The first gameplay trailer is being released today to accompany the announcement, giving a deeper look into the game. The trailer features elderly priest Lafcadio Boone, who is attempting to prevent a recurring series of murders that are taking place over the course of a single, endlessly-looping day within The Sexy Brutale casino mansion.
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. Every life they save will get them closer to the secrets of The Sexy Brutale and its owner – the enigmatic Marquis.
