Konami has announced that it is creating a social deduction game with the additional help of deductive reasoning.Their PvP mystery game Crimesight Is a simulated battle between AI Sherlock Holmes and Mori Reality, played by a pawn that snowed all together in a fairly large cottage. In this turn-based strategy game, Moriarity tries to unmask the selected doll without knowing who is trying to kill it. Konami gave some clues as to how it would be played on the Crimesight rebirth trailer.
The crime scene will occur in 2027. At this time, violent crimes were almost eradicated, thanks to AI that predicts them before they occur. Predicting a series of crimes that AI can’t prevent, the engineer creates a better AI called Sherlock to guess the bad guy AI Moriarity at the heart of it all. You are not playing as Sherlock or Moriarity. You are one of these simulated unlucky travelers who snowed together in the cottage. The new trailer here shows some of the PvP actions.
Konami calls the crime site a “desktop strategy” in the trailer. Given that it’s turn-based, if you’ve been playing other social deduction games lately, Crimesight seems to be more like Clue than Among Us.
Rather than attempting a complete murder, the player selected as the villain has one specific target to kill, but all other players do not know who the victim or villain is. I’m trying to prevent it. To win, the villain must have a weapon and be alone in the same room and area as the selected victim. The Sherlock player has to keep the target alive for four game days while waiting for help to arrive, all the while trying to remove the mask of the unknown murderer.
