The Second Guest is a spooky crime adventure in a modern 2D-look that is graphically inspired by the works of Tim Burton. A dense atmosphere, funny dialogues and the lovingly designed characters bring a new shine to the flair of mystery thrillers of the 20’s. With a balanced mix of creepy atmosphere and slapstick, The Second Guest offers everything an adventure-enthusiast is looking for. The game features the established point’n’click-control scheme guaranteeing perfect accessibility for all adventure-fans and casual gamers.

The Second Guest includes the first two episodes of the (currently planned) five parts of the whole plot, whereby each episode is self-contained and can also stand on its own.

The game is being developed by Twice Effect, an independent studio, with experts working in this genre sector since the 80’s. Their track record includes working on great adventure classics such as „Jack Orlando“, „The Whispered World“ and many others.
