Inspector Waffles, the debut point and click adventure of studio Goloso Games, has officially launched on Steam and GOG today.
“An inspector’s life is a dangerous one, but if there’s one thing I like more than strong milk – it’s solving mysteries.”
Inspector Waffles is a tongue-in-cheek take on the classic noir mystery, combining intuitive puzzles with full cinematic cutscenes to create an adventure ready to challenge and entertain detectives of any skill level.
Players will take up the paws of the quick-witted titular investigator as he uncovers the truth behind the suspicious death of Fluffy, beloved creator of the best cardboard boxes Cat Town has ever seen.
Inspector Waffles lovingly pays tribute to the classic detective story, tying up the cynical Waffles with his own bounding police dog sidekick to uncover a mystery that spans a diverse and colourful range of environments, each bursting with its own secrets. Rendered in beautifully simple pixel art, with a bespoke jazz soundtrack to set the tone – Inspector Waffles is ideal for mystery fans looking for a playful adventure to uncover.
Yann, creator of Inspector Waffles and studio founder, said “After almost four years working on it, releasing Inspector Waffles into the world feels amazing.
The adventure of Waffles first started a hobby, but as the character, setting and gameplay grew I realized that I really wanted to make this game a reality.
It wouldn’t be possible without the people I met during this journey, helping me creating a community around the game, supporting as much as they could. This is possible thanks to them.“
Players can get their paws on Inspector Waffles for PC now via Steam and GOG.
