About Labyrinth City: Pierre the Maze Detective
Stop, thief! Mr X has stolen the magical Maze Stone from Opera City’s museum, but fear not – Pierre is hot on his trail. The chase will take players through a series of incredibly detailed scenes, each loaded with eccentric characters, animations and intriguing interactions. The chilled and charming game experience features a variety of lovingly hand-crafted locations, where players will be tasked to find their way out of a maze, complete minigames and find hidden objects and clues to progress.

The game is a passion project born from the Darjeeling team’s love of the book series, and has already collected awards including the IndieCade 2020 Visual Design award and the Game Connection Asia 2020 Best Quality of Art award.
