“Ghosts of Christmas Passed is something we've been thinking about since we released the previous Christmas case, Buy Hard. That let us seed in a teeny bit of foreshadowing through A Fumble in the Dark, something unique to our format that we think is a wee treat for eagle-eyed players. It has everything: characters, art, noises, words - I think we might even have included a ghost?” - Dave Mccabe, Writer


The Darkside Detective: A Fumble in the Dark is a serial adventure game where you help a duo of investigators crack the supernatural cases and puzzles plaguing their city of Twin Lakes. Whether it be a noise complaint due to your ritual-performing neighbours or perhaps Mothman keeps loitering around your porchlight at night, McQueen and Dooley are just a text-box away! So point, click, or tap your way through seven new cases as you get to the bottom of each mystery.
