Tiny detective Jenny LeClue is making her way to Nintendo Switch. The news was first announced during The Kinda Funny Games Showcase, alongside a brand new trailer.

In Jenny LeClue: Detectivu, you play as the titular Jenny LeClue, a young detective longing for a proper case that will set her on the path of adventure. Unfortunately for Jenny, her wish comes true when her mother is accused of murder. It’s up to you to uncover the truth and clear her name.

Soon we discover that the sleepy town of Arthurton holds many dark secrets. Use your skills of deduction and puzzle-solving to find the real killer, save Jenny’s mother and unravel the mystery at the heart of the case.

The game looks kid-friendly, developer Mografi says it’s “not just for kids” as it will explore themes of family, loss, and identity within a horror, sci-fi and mystery setting.

Jenny LeClue: Detectivu is probably my most anticipated indie game of 2019 (sorry Cyberpunk 2077). A big part of it is the adorable art style, but I’m also a huge fan of investigations, mysteries, and puzzles. The game’s description calls it “detectiving, friends, and choosiness,” but either way it ticks a lot of boxes.

Speaking of “choosiness”, the way the story unfolds depends on the decisions you make – some of your choices will permanently change how subsequent chapters play out. You’ll be writing Jenny’s story together with 
Arthur K Finklestein, the game’s narrator and the author of a book series based on Jenny’s life. Or is it the other way around?

Jenny LeClue: Detectivu will be out in Q1 of 2019, for PC, PlayStation 4, and now for Nintendo Switch as well.
