London, August 21st, 2019 - Egyptian Adventure, the new theme for Marmalade Game Studio's CLUE/CLUEDO and an homage to the fantastical world of early 20th-century crime novels, is out now on Nintendo Switch, Steam, iOS, and Android.

 

CLUE/CLUEDO is the classic murder mystery game by Hasbro, Inc., which has been a staple in many households since the 1950s. The aim of the game is to find out who committed the heinous murder of Mr Boddy/Dr Black, with which weapon and in which room. The first player who deduces the correct answer wins the game.

 

The new theme, Egyptian Adventure, is Marmalade Game Studio's ninth theme for CLUE/CLUEDO. It references murder mystery stories popular in the 1920s and 1930s and pays a special tribute to Agatha Christie's "Death on the Nile", as well as the classic Indiana Jones adventure films. Players have a chance to experience the wonders of Egypt from the comfort of their living room while searching for clues and solving the murder of Mr Boddy/Dr Black.

 

Cristina Mereuta, Marmalade's COO said: "We chose the archaeological digs of early 20th century Egypt because they provide a striking backdrop for a murder mystery and give us a chance to explore a diverse group of captivating suspects with conflicting agendas. We're over the moon with the result and can't wait to share it with our detectives." 

 

In Egyptian Adventure, players get a new board with nine new Egypt-themed locations, such as the famous Sphinx, the traditional Egyptian market, and the Pharaoh's tomb, as well as corresponding weapons. Also featured is a motley collection of six new suspects, including Scarlett featuring as an Aviator, Mustard featuring as Egyptian Royalty, Peacock as a wayward Priestess, and for the first time in the digital version, the illustrious Mrs Meadow-Brook.

 

Egyptian Adventure is the latest instalment in a series of well-loved themes such as Venetian Masquerade, which takes players to the canals of Venice, and, most recently, the Sherlock Holmes theme in which players can play as the famous master-detective and his sidekick Dr Watson. 

 

The Egyptian Adventure theme is available for CLUE/CLUEDO on Nintendo Switch, Steam, iOS, and Android as a separate add-on to the game for 6.99USD/7.99EUR on mobile or as part of the Season Pass, which includes access to all previous eight themes, for 34.99USD/39.99EUR on mobile and Steam and 9.99USD/9.99EUR on Nintendo Switch. 

 

CLUEDO is known as CLUE in North America.
