History

First Franchise: The Detail

The first season of the episodic neo-noir adventure game The Detail was completed in 2016. Inspired by the classic adventure games from Westwood and LucasArts as well as the new series from Telltale Games, it draws from the gritty flavor of HBO's cop drama The Wire and combines it with hand-drawn graphic novel art. Driven by the Unity engine, The Detail is available on PC, Mac, Linux and iOS.
