Hauma – A Detective Noir Story, Coming Soon to PC And Nintendo Switch

Dive deep into the heart of Munich as Assemble Entertainment and developer SenAm Games reveal an all-new narrative-based investigative noir visual novel Hauma – A Detective Noir Story.

Coming later this fall to Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam and Itch.io, the story of Hauma unfolds in a thrilling, comic-inspired visual style that only amplifies the unique storytelling elements. Hauma challenges players to master the art of deduction. Uncover a harrowing conspiracy perpetuated by the city’s upper echelon. Hauma – A Detective Noir Story can be added to your wishlist now, and a free demo is playable on Steam.

Showcased in the Indie Live Expo on May 20, 2023, Hauma – A Detective Noir Story joins indie peers from Assemble Entertainment, including Windy Meadow – A Roadwarden Tale, Between Horizons, Mira and the Legends of the Djinns, and Verne: The Shape of Fantasy.

Hauma’s stand-out narrative delivery and female-led plot make it an excellent addition to this year’s showcase that celebrates indie developers and their games worldwide.

In Hauma, players will step into the weary, well-trodden soles of Judith. She’s a former detective roused out of retirement by the suspicious goings-on of society’s upper class. While tracking down and interrogating the city’s cabal, explore real-world locations displayed in a distinctive, graphic-novel art style. Discover pieces of hidden history and use these clues to probe the mystery within. Collect items, solve puzzles, and overcome dialogue riddles as players make their own investigative deductions using the “mindboard”, a unique characteristic of the game that functions as an inventory containing items, thoughts, and other clues necessary to decipher the dark secret of the city’s underbelly.
