Solve It is an experimental game by Haiku Games. It is a visual novel where you find clues, confront suspects, and solve a murder mystery.
Is this another Adventure Escape game?
No - this is an entirely new type of game. If you like Haiku Games, we hope you will give it a shot, but frankly we do not expect every Adventure Escape fan to like Solve It. It’s a different type of game with no inventory items and fewer puzzles, but more emphasis on story, dialogue, and interpersonal relationships.
Will you keep making Adventure Escape games?
Yes! We certainly will. Some players will be worried that making Solve It means we will move away from Adventure Escape. That’s not true at all - we have more people working on Adventure Escape than ever before. If Solve It does well, we may continue to make more similar games. And we hope both types of games will combine to bring more players to our company, which will help us continue to make games in the future.
Why did you make Solve It?
We think it’s fun! We played visual novel games like Choices and Episode. While we liked the stories of those games, we didn’t like how there weren’t too many decisions the player has to make since the stories are all very linear. We thought it would be fun to deduce who to confront with evidence to unravel the mystery.
Experimenting with new games is important for us as a game company. It’s part of the challenge and fun of working at a game company, and we don’t want to get stagnant. So regardless of how well Solve It does, you can expect us to keep experimenting with new games in the future!
Why is it only in English?
Solve It is an experimental game. We’re not sure whether players will like it, and we want to test out whether or not players like it. As a result, it is only available in a few countries right now, and it is only in English.
