We here at 3Bit have some very exciting news from Spooky Doorway and Akupara Games about one of our all-time favourite point and click adventures, The Darkside Detective, over the weekend. We finally got the exciting news that we will be able to continue the adventures of Detective Mcqueen and his loyal sidekick, Officer Patrick Dooley, for an all-new series of Cases in The Darkside Detective: A Fumble In The Dark. The all-new Darkside Detective title will be coming to Steam on April 15, 2021, where you can Wishlist the game now and even try out the incredible demo. The Darkside Detective: A Fumble in The Dark will also be coming to Nintendo, Xbox and PlayStation consoles, as well as Google Stadia.

The Darkside Detective: A Fumble In The Dark will bring even more spooky hilarity to the city of Twin Lakes, America's 34th most haunted city. In this city, our dynamite duo will throw reality out the window to solve any investigation that comes their way, no matter how paranormal or clown filled, it may become.  The Darkside Detective: A Fumble In The Dark will pick up exactly where the first game left off, with Officer Dooley needing to be rescued from the Darkside so that the duo can be reunited to solve a variety of other strange happenings that haunt Twin Lakes.

The Darkside Detective: A Fumble In The Dark will take us to more locations than ever before, with six all-new investigations taking us to creepy carnivals, an amateur wrestling ring, the beautiful land of Ireland and the local retirement home! You can check out all the features that are included in The Darkside Detective: A Fumble In The Dark below, which have been written in the developers own words, we promise.
