BadLand Games has signed a deal with Spanish developer Tequila Works to publish adventure game The Sexy Brutale as a physical release on April 11 for the PlayStation 4. The Sexy Brutale was co-developed by Tequila Works and the UK-based Cavalier Game Studios. The physical release is entitled The Sexy Brutale: Full House Edition.
Fans who pre-order the game will receive an exclusive six-page comic book penned by renowned comic artist Enrique Fernandez or an exclusive artbook featuring unseen images and concepts from the game’s development. The physical version of the game will also include a CD of the official soundtrack and a full-color manual on the game and development background.
Developed over three years between Cavalier Game Studios and Tequila Works, The Sexy Brutale is the name of the grand casino mansion where a series of horrifying murders take place during the annual masked ball. Players take on the role of elderly priest Lafcadio Boone, and must hide and spy on guests and staff alike to solve and prevent each murder before the clock strikes midnight, during a never-ending Groundhog Day that will not stop until all the mansion’s dark secrets are revealed.
“The Sexy Brutale is one of the most remarkable games we have seen, and we’re absolutely delighted to be bringing it to physical retail,” says BadLand Games CEO Luis Quintans. “Solving murders by reliving an unending cycle of death is a great concept on its own — and a worthy addition to the adventure genre.”
“The joy of The Sexy Brutale is experiencing each individual story and death and learning how to prevent each murder before it happens every day,” says Tequila Works CEO and creative director Raúl Rubio. “Such a special occasion demands the appropriate dress code — a fancy physical release in partnership with BadLand Games!”
