The Hex is a murder mystery multi genre game that releases on Linux, Mac and Windows today. Now available from developer Daniel Mullins Games on Steam.
The Hex gameplay takes place in a creaky old tavern. Since this represents a forgotten corner of the video game universe. A storm is raging.
Then the barkeep gets a patchy phone call. Since it hard to tell what the caller is saying. This much is clear: someone in The Six Pint Inn is planning a murder.
So there are six patrons; all of them are video game protagonists trying to escape their past. Since The Six Pint Inn has a way of bringing back old memories. Each flashback plays out in an entirely different genre. And sometimes blending multiple.
Therefore, by exploring these memories you may discover the identity of the murderer. Or you may learn much darker secrets in the game. This is a very unique and mysterious take on using multiple genres. And definitely worth the adventure.
