Lamplight City a detective adventure launches on Linux, Mac and Windows. Available now on Steam, GOG and Humble Store. The game takes place in an alternate steampunk-ish era. Where players take on the roll of police detective turned private investigator Miles Fordham. While working to track down his partners killer.

Lamplight City has kind of an odd story. Since the main characters partner is speaking to him from the after-life. While the character himself is working to solve the case. But also trying to keep it together in the process.

Lamplight City takes place in the thriving port city of New Bretagne. A beacon of progress and industrial advancement in the New World. Yet beneath the promises of a shining 19th-century future, the city rests upon foundations of poverty, class struggle, and crime.
