The developer revealed the new game during the Future Games Show on June 14, alongside a thrilling announcement trailer that follows retired detective Robert Conway as he launches a private investigation into the sudden disappearance of 8-year-old Charlotte May. However, the wheelchair-bound P.I will have to solve the mystery from his living room window, Rear Window-style.
The clip also showcases Conway: Disappearance At Dahlia View’s 1950s England setting, as well as the slew of side characters that Conway will encounter and spy on during his investigation – including his own daughter, who is also a detective herself.
Conway: Disappearance At Dahlia View is the latest game from White Paper Games, following 2014’s Ether One and 2019’s The Occupation. The developer has also noted that its upcoming title is a combination of sorts between Ether One and The Occupation.
“We’ve put a lot of energy into creating a blend between the puzzle and storytelling elements from Ether One with the evidence-collecting and character-driven dialogue interactions of The Occupation to bring you our latest IP, Conway: Disappearance At Dahlia View,” Pete Bottomley, co-founder of White Paper Games, told GamesRadar.
