Platform: Steam Deck

The Darkside Detective is an episode-based point and click adventure game, where you play short episodes, each focused on a single supernatural case. This makes it easy to play in small bursts, and is structured so that the first 6 cases are all related to each other (and the game ends in Episiode 6), and there are 3 bonus cases to play too. I played it on the Steam Deck, which worked perfectly well, although it is cursor based so probably works better with a mouse. The writing was genuinely enjoyable, and felt like just a really well made self contained game. I'd recommend anyone who enjoys short story games to check it out. Humour is always subjective, but I enjoyed it.
