    damn, this looks so good. i love detective stories, and this one isn't set in new york or london, which is a fucking great plus score.

    Aren't Detective Di's stories, crime stories combined with wuxia martial arts? (at least in the movies idk about the original stories)

    It would be awesome if this combined classic adventure gameplay with side scrolling Karateka action :D

    After 4 years in development, we are super excited to announce that Detective Di: The Silk Rose Murders is coming to Steam and Humble Store on May 1st, 2019!

    TL;DR: Detective Di is a thrilling point-and-click adventure game where you play as Di Renjie, ancient China's most famous and gifted investigator, as he tracks a serial killer in the heart of the Tang Dynasty's capital city.

    Here's the brand new launch trailer:


    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Synopsis:
    Amid lingering political turmoil, the first and only female empress of China, Wu Zetian rises to power. Within months of her ascension to the throne, murmurs of discontentment and revolution swell as detractors and enemies begin plotting against her. It is against this backdrop that our protagonist, newly appointed investigating magistrate Di Renjie, must solve a gruesome series of murders–which will lead him on a collision course with the Imperial Court and the empress herself.

    Will our young detective overcome his own inner demons and his allegiance to the previous emperor? What is the connection between the murder victims and the capital’s many political secrets? YOU must uncover the truth…

    We’d love to get feedback from adventure fans like yourselves. Let us know what you think of the trailer and if the game's setting is appealing to you.

    And if you enjoy the trailer and like the idea of playing a legendary Chinese detective on his first big case, please be sure to drop by our Steam page and wishlist the game!

    Looking forward to your comments!

    O hey, I remember a thread about this from 4 years ago.

    Anyway, I saw ninja and thus put it on my wishlist. Does that mean I now want the Di?

    Wonderful! I back this ages ago, and I had assumed that its development got derailed. Glad to see it's done!

    Thanks for the encouragement!

    I see I'm preaching to the choir! Only thing is, I worry at this stage how many people really want to try out a game with such a different setting (pre-release jitters I guess). Hopefully we can buck the trend!

    I guess we can add this game to the list of victims of GOG's craptastic curation decisions.

    From today's Kickstarter update.
    I really can't fathom what's going on in these peoples' heads. Its stupidity is compounded when you look at some of what they will sell.
    Tradition point and click adventure game? Too niche!
    Weird cell phone simulator game? Perfect!

    At least itch.io is an option for a DRM free copy.

    Another dev continuing the time honoured tradition of releasing a kickstarted game on Steam for buyers before mailing out keys to backers I see.

    If anyone wants my key, let me know. I’d just ask that you leave a review, for good or ill, after playing, as developers really benefit from that support/criticism.
