Uber-promising noir detective game Nobody Wants to Die has a release date – and it’s due out in a little over a month. The Plaion published and Critical Hit developed futuristic detective title has netted a 17th July release date, and you can check out the outing’s ridiculously promising deploy date trailer embedded above.

“In Nobody Wants to Die, we give the player an opportunity to investigate a killer and uncover the dark secrets of the city, using the innovative in-game tools and their own moral compass as a guide,” lead game designer Grzegorz Golen explained in a press release. “The dynamic and spectacular investigations the player can conduct sets a new bar for in-game narratives and cinematics,” added producer Artur Jaskolski.

The game is set in a dystopian New York City, far into the 2329 future. “Following a near-death experience, Detective James Karra takes an off-the-books case from his chief with only the help of a young police liaison, Sara Kai, to assist him. Time reveals all as they risk everything in pursuit of a killer, uncovering the dark secrets of the city’s elite,” the blurb reveals.

As the trailer shows, you’ll be using time manipulation to recreate crime scenes, slowly piecing together the events that led to a series of high-profile murders involving the city’s elite. It’s running on Unreal Engine 5, and in a way it reminds us of the Sherlock Holmes games – albeit with all sorts of futuristic technology available to solve the cases.
