The Sexy Brutale is a puzzle-adventure game with investigation elements.


The game takes place in a luxurious mansion called The Sexy Brutale where a big masquerade party occurs. The story follows Lafcadio Boone — a preacher who becomes a witness of the series of mysterious murders and finds out that the mansion is stuck in a 12 hours long time loop.
A mysterious woman appears and gives Boone an ability to pull himself out of this anomaly by manipulating the time inside with magical pocket watch. Now Lafcadio must save his friends from the death and identify the killer.


The game is divided into several 12-hour periods. In each of them, your goal is to save one of the guests from the murderer. You explore the mansion, discover its secrets and learn about the partygoers. Because of your abilities to avoid the effects of the time loop, you have to sneak behind the guests without being seen. The gameplay heavily focuses on the puzzle-solving. To save the partygoers, you usually have to investigate the murder set, decide which objects you can manipulate to prevent the crime, rewind the time and execute your plan without being noticed. With every character saved, Boone gets new powers that improve his skills such as lockpicking or hearing. The game has a secret ending that you can unlock by collecting all of the 52 hidden cards.

The Sexy Brutale reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Why did I buy this Game? This Game was praised by the Gamestar in the Sky. Interesting Game idea, ingenious Concept, etc. So I watched it. My first Impression Very cool. Located Seeting in a 50S casino. The Soundtrack alone is extremely apt. Is probably not for everyone. Fits Though in case ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ on Bucket. The Settings are kept to a Minimum. Fullscreen on/off, Language that wars. So off you go. Story That's the Spring in the Game. So fancy the Seeting and the Game Idea turned out, I can reveal, over time they wouldn't bring the Game. It's the Story that lets you move on, always with the Question of what's new. The Finale is then a bit flat, but also not in such a way that it leaves open questions. Game Mechanics After setting the second Special Feature in the Game. In the aforementioned Casino, Murders are carried out on the Guests. This must be prevented. To do this, you get the Gimmick of Time travel. You experience the same Day again and again, "and daily the Marmot greets." This, of course, also opens up where is the Victim, where the Murderer, what said Persons do and how the actual Murder is going on. So With this Info, it is important to prevent the Murder, but not simply by force of Arms or by pointing it out to the Victim. No, the Murder must be prevented from the Background. Be it to manipulate the Murder weapon, or to support cracking a Symbol puzzle or preventing the Killer from Advancing. No matter how you do it, no one is allowed To see you. That makes it a little trickier. Once one of the Victims has been rescued, you will be given a new Ability that will allow you to penetrate into previously closed Areas of the Casino. This is quite cleverly solved and allows the Game world to grow. But What kept braking and disturbing me again and again was the typical Adventure moderate. Seeking the individual Rooms. I found that some of the Puzzles that were to be solved were not always unambiguous. Frustration arose. That's a Criticism of the Game that weighs very heavily. Graphics & Sound The Graphics are in an oversubscribed colorful Style, but this is a great match for the Mood. It all seems a bit garish and cluttered, just as you imagine an extravagant Casino. The Sound is in a Class of itself. I stand on the Music of the 50s, besides, the Whole thing fits beautifully into the Picture. Unfortunately, there is no Voiceover, except for a Vocal Insert, everything is told in Text form. What a pity. Verdict "The Sexy Brutale" is more of an Adventure than an Action Game. The Idea of preventing Murders by travelling through Time was so there were in Computer Games I don't think so. Packed into an unused Scenario, garnished with a great Soundtrack speak for itself. Were it not for the Story with the sometimes incomprehensible Puzzles. Or the Fact that after one-on-one Play, there is no incentive to Play through again. Then I would make an unqualified Recommendation here. So all I have to say is that something of Potential has been given away here. And that diminishes the Overall Impression. Still, I give a Thumbs up. The Soundtrack hats alone deserves ... Did you like my Review? Then let me have a Like there. Also Note my other Reviews.
"The sexy Brutale" is peak game design. It's a gameplay loop that works so well and gives the player a playground that is rich in narrative and story.
