Arcane Crimes Division: Triptych of Blood


Arcane Crimes Division brings light-hearted buddy-cop style action to a fantasy city bursting with magic and thick with scheming villains and ruthless scoundrels. The focus of the game is the relationship between detectives, as they crack cases, engage in thrilling chases, and confront criminal masterminds.

During each shift, teams of detectives battle the clock, pursuing leads across the city to unravel crimes, and bring the guilty to justice, before it’s too late. While the detectives always crack the case eventually, should time run out, the villains receive an advantage in the final confrontation. At every juncture, detectives must decide whether to trigger their special abilities to boost their success, potentially risk causing collateral damage, that could see them both consigned to paperwork hell.

Play as a Siege Automaton, powered by magic and steam; a Spell-Runner, skilled at navigating deadly dungeons, a Crimson Court Vampire, ageless and unnaturally attractive; a Blade, acrobatic and fearless and many more. This game works best when detectives riff off their partners, so be prepared to collaborate and lean-into the genre.

Triptych of Blood
The recent death of the city matriarch has created the sale of the century. As the last member of her family, she leaves behind no heir, meaning her impressive collection of jewellery and art will be sold at auction. Treasures mundane and magical will see the light of day for the first time in centuries. What wonders and horrors stand to be unveiled has gripped the imagination of a whole city.

Security is a paramount concern. The auctioneers have spared no expense in hiring the best private guards and thief catchers that money can buy, and the polarity police department chief has personally guaranteed that the only action or excitement will be frenzied bidding. Criminals- you have been warned.
