Sometimes, under development games manage to raise my expectations to the point that I start following their path towards their release. There is no guarantee that they will actually meet my expectations, but it’s nonetheless fun and interesting to observe their design and development.
So, if you are keeping an eye on an under development adventure game, feel free to share it here. I’ll start with the one that intrigues me the most at the moment:
A description of the game from the website:
A Case of Distrust is a narrative mystery from 1924 San Francisco. Play as private investigator Phyllis Cadence Malone in this historical 2D adventure game. Explore underground speakeasies, smoke-filled billiard halls, classic barber shops, and more.
Catch suspects in lies by using evidence, statements, and your wits. Intrinsic challenges face our heroine, as she struggles against a pushback on emancipation, leading to many doubts, both internal and external. Uncover the truth in a mystery full of deception!
I like about everything about this game: the fact that it’s set in San Francisco (which is a city that I love), the fact that it’s set in a period that has always interested me a lot (the twenties and the US Prohibition) and its simple graphic style.
I have also played a demo of the game (which is no more available) and the gameplay was quite good. The protagonist has to investigate some crimes, so there is a lot of observation and deduction involved.

The official website also provides a few desktop wallpapers for anyone to download, like the following one:
