Sydney, Australia in the 1920s is a hotbed of crime and vice. The inner city suburbs of Darlinghurst and Surry Hills are a battleground between warring gangs led by prostitute Tilly Devine and sly grog queen Kate Leigh. And in the middle of it all is you, a detective for the New South Wales Police, just trying to solve the crimes and bring the perpetrators to justice.
Razorhurst is a story-driven detective game similar to Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective. You will interview suspects, follow leads, and use your abilities for observation, persuasion and force. Razorhurst introduces a unique clock mechanic for affecting the player's abilities. But the main difference with other detective games is that in Razorhurst everything is real. You will be investigating actual crimes, tracking down historical evidence, and bringing actual killers to justice. Based on exhaustive research, Razorhurst allows the player to step back in time to one of the most heady and deadly places in history.
