The Sexy Brutale is Groundhog Day in a murder-casino

Story of my life

I’ve had The Sexy Brutale in my periphery for a while, because the name has “sexy” in it, and sex sells, but now that there’s a gameplay trailer, there’s finally something to go on. And it looks neat. Cool art, nice music; kind of reminds me of the casino in Grim Fandango mixed with Vita oddball Escape Plan.

You play as, “elderly priest Lafcadio Boone, who is attempting to prevent a recurring series of murders that are taking place over the course of a single,endlessly-looping day within The Sexy Brutale casino mansion.” See, my headline was spot on, yeah? The mystery puzzler is coming to PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on April 12.
