Arcane Crimes Division: The Big Score

Andy Millar

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.

The Big Score
It is finals week for the Free Territories Football Association (FTFA), and to determine the championship the Polarity Pulse are hosting their arch-rivals the Rapture Rhapsody at Evershine Stadium.

The city of Polarity heaves with glamorous sports stars, inquisitive paparazzi, loyal fans, and plenty of sketchy types looking to make a quick buck out of the unsuspecting. The Arcane Crimes Division have their hands full with death threats, necro-theft, and a missing poodle.

Will the criminals win the day or will the Arcane Crimes Division overcome the odds in overtime? Either way everyone is going to be talking about the BIG SCORE!
