Tin Man Games left their usual gamebook fare in the dust when they released Miss Fisher and the Deathly Maze earlier this year. Instead of reading pages of text and then picking where the story goes, Miss Fisher was a full-fledged adventure game with a rather awesome protagonist and a slew of other interesting characters wrapped around a compelling mystery. It’s good enough that I started bingeing the Australian series on Netflix and have been loving every minute of it. Over the weekend, Tin Man added Episode 2 to the mix and, in the process, made the first episode free-to-download.
Episode Two adds and entirely new mystery to unravel, and it’s twice as long as the Deathly Maze. It’s titled Cleopatra’s Curse and takes place in Broome, a pearling town in Western Australia. I have no idea what a pearling town is, but my first guess has something to do with harvesting oysters. A quick Google search tells me that my third grade education is really paying off.
On top of the new story, there’s also a new hidden object minigame. If those three words cause you to feel a bit nauseous, fear not, they’re completely optional and you can ignore them to your heart’s content. You’ll also find 9 new outfits for Phryne to wear which, of course, are all completely fabulous. That last sentence might sound ridiculous, but if you’ve watched the show at all, you know that the amazing 1920’s era garb is a big part of the draw.
If you haven’t played Miss Fisher yet, you can now download it for free and play the first episode without dropping a dime. Cleopatra’s Curse is available via $3 IAP.
