The Last Case Of Benedict Fox Is A Metroidvania Starring A Demonic Detective

Coming Early 2023

Benedict Fox

While yesterday’s Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase 2022 was filled with games from big studios, one of the games that grabbed my attention most was a smaller game from a new indie team in Poland called Plot Twist. The Last Case of Benedict Fox is a beautiful looking Metroidvania starring a detective who has been tied to a demonic companion since birth. While this may be a negative for some people, it gives Benedict a variety of powers.

The main ability he has is the ability to explore the minds of the recently deceased, taking their testimony. This plays out in a version of Limbo where you’ll need to fight your way through where you can use demonic powers, as well as a variety of weapons, to survive and help solve the murder mystery the game is built around.

With supernatural style in spades, as well as a jazzy soundtrack which is already putting a grin on my face, I know I’ll be looking forward to The Last Case of Benedict Fox when it is set to release in early 2023 on Xbox platforms and PC. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.

He enjoys most genres but is always pulled back to classic RPG's, with his favorite games ever including Suikoden II, Panzer Dragoon Saga, and Phantasy Star IV. Don't worry though, he thinks new games are cool too, with more recent favorites like Hades, Rocket League, and Splatoon 2 stealing hundreds of hours of his life. When he isn't playing games he's often watching classic movies, catching a basketball game, or reading the first twenty pages of a book before getting busy and forgetting about it.
