Red Johnson’s Chronicles Storyline, Trailer and Concept Art Announced

14 April, 2011 - 6:18 pm by

Lexis Numérique today announced new storyline elements of their up and coming game, Red Johnson’s Chronicles as well as some concept art and a trailer, which will be available on the PlayStation Network by the end of the month.

Metropolis, capital city of crime. Here, even the police are more often part of the criminal element than on the right path. Private detective Red Johnson, who seemingly has more of a sense of duty than the other Metropolis authorities combined, is stretched to his limits after shots were heard from nearby Drownedmen’s Bridge.

One of the most hated men in town has been shot and dumped in the canal. Theresa, his insanely cold widow, doesn’t seem upset and even admits she won’t shed a tear, making her the perfect suspect. Sonia, a scruffy red-head escort girl known for her special talent, hides more than she’ll admit, while the self professed ‘king of the bums’ Raoul has a tendency to turn violent after a few drinks too many – a pair both linked to the victim in more than suspicious ways.

The more Metropolis inhabitants you’ll interview, the more suspects and dangerous enemies – including mobster ‘Black Plague’ Carlos – you’ll uncover and have to deal with.
