Montreal, CA — Spread the word, everyone! Nupixo Games’ Detective Di: The Silk Rose Murders is coming to Steam and Humble Store on May 1st, 2019!

The small indie studio is excited to announce that, in less than a month’s time, gamers everywhere will be able to take on the role of the legendary Di Renjie, ancient China’s most gifted detective, as he unravels the toughest case of his career.

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…

At launch, the game will be available to PC/Mac and will be playable in English and Chinese.
