Description

Albert Wilde: The Quantum P.I. is a comedy game, a genre-bending noirish sci-fi mystery set in a fictional version of New York in the 1930’s featuring atmospheric black & white vintage visuals, loveable anthropomorphic characters, and at least one joke about cat nipples (they have six!).

A freakish corpse, a pissed-off bookie, a wormhole to another reality, it’s just another day in the office for Albert Wilde, feline private eye.

Players must talk, walk, climb, and puzzle their way through a murder mystery that’s messier than a fresh hairball, in this hilarious zoological tribute to the golden age of noir.

History
