The Rise of the Golden Idol is on the way to Switch, publisher Playstack and developer Color Gray Games just announced. A release is planned for 2024.
The new game, which is a follow-up to The Case of the Golden Idol, has players uncovering the truth behind 15 strange cases of crime, death, and depravity in the 1970s. Further details are included in the following overview:
Three centuries following the unspeakable fate of the Cloudsleys, the legend of the Golden Idol has all but faded. Now it is carried only in small whispers, uttered as an obscene myth.
Some are determined for this to change.
Welcome to the 70s – Blood and Disco
The Rise of the Golden Idol follows a tenacious relic hunter on a quest to unearth the powerful artifact that – if the legend is true – can reshape the world.
As the observer, you must investigate 15 strange cases of crime, death and depravity. Like before with The Case of the Golden Idol, you are free to investigate however you wish and build your own theory.
You must make sense of a grand mystery that unravels across an age of hallucinogens, fax machines, parapsychology and TV guides.
Enlightenment seekers, convicts, chat show hosts and corporate middle management will all have a role to play in the wider mysteries that unfold. Like always, many of these subjects will have their own motives. Some will be carrying more than agendas.
