Murdered: Soul Suspect E3 demo released

25 minutes of footage from the supernatural detective thriller

Square Enix has sent over its Murdered: Soul Suspect E3 demo.


The 25-minute video is presented by Eric Studer, senior designer and producer at Airtight Games, which previously worked on Dark Void and Quantum Conundrum.

Studer describes the game as a "supernatural detective thriller that's a brand new blend on the action adventure genre" in which players are tasked with solving their own murder.

Square Enix claims the game picked up ten awards at last month's trade show in LA. It's set for release early next year on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
