For thriller fans out there, the board game Clue (brought in India by Funskool) was a popular hit! Henceforth, Japanese gaming producers, Konami took everyone by surprise with the announcement of Crimesight. A tribute to the legendary tabletop game, Crimesight would take us to the year 2075. By this time, AI would come at full pace and play an important role in mankind. That’s where we would get to see players in Crimesight competing for two different sides. One side would be manipulating the characters to be successful in the murder attempt. Meanwhile, the other one would do their all to stop the plan.
The upcoming Konami game has asked fans to play a role in building the game. To provide this platform, Konami has henceforth asked gamers to participate in a Closed BETA test. In the test, gamers get to play and provide their feedback, which can help in uplifting the game’s potential. As a result, to participate in the Closed BETA Test, Crimesight has opened the gateway both ways. It has asked aspiring contributors to participate through Discord and Twitter. But to match as the BETA Test candidate, Konami has set certain criterias which need to be matched, so that gamers can participate in the BETA Test. Now comes the real question. What characters would we get to see in the game? Henceforth read this article to know more.
Crimesight Game Characters List
Konami’s new upcoming game would feature two characters, that can be divided into a protagonist and an antagonist (based on the side you select.) The two main characters we will see in the game are:
Sherlock: According to Konami
An AI whose purpose is to prevent the criminal mastermind AI—Moriarty—from executing his devious plot to murder. Take control of the simulator’s “avatars”, and uncover Moriarty’s “target” along with the avatar tasked with committing the foul deed, the “villain.”
Moriarty: From Konami’s perspective
Moriarty will attempt to predict the perfect moment to murder an avatar, while Sherlock will do everything in his power to save the one marked for murder, the “target.” Though Sherlock has full command of the avatars’ movements in the simulator, so too does Moriarty, who won’t hesitate to make his “pawns” do his bidding. Only the “target” may elude Moriarty’s control.
Along with this, in the game, we will get to see three forms of avatar.
- The Target
- The Villain
- The Standard Avatars
In the game year 2075, a ruthless AI criminal Moriarty has been constructed and will commit a murder that will throw the world into turmoil. To counter this, a new AI named Sherlock is created to thwart Moriarty. Henceforth in Crimesight, players will compete; where one side will attempt to influence characters in order to perform the murder. Meanwhile, the other will attempt to do the same to prevent the murder for protection.
