Agatha Christie - The ABC Murders (Video Game Review)
Adapting any kind of famous mystery into a video game is trying at the best of times. The issue always lies in how to keep the story faithful to the original material, while respecting the player’s freedom and intelligence. To help combat this issue, Artefacts Studios took things in a very unusual direction, by adapting Poirot to a video game format.
Following one of the more famous novels, the story sees the Belgian detective combating a bizarre case of murders directed at him. Challenging letters repeatedly arrive through the post, mocking his abilities and leaving ABC railway guides with each victim.
