Indie developer Cave Monsters has announced that Lord Winklebottom Investigates, a new point-and-click adventure featuring a dapper giraffe detective and his tea-slurping hippo companion, Dr. Frumple, will be coming to Xbox in late July.

The product of a one-woman studio (Charlotte Sutherland has previously worked for Rare, EA, and TT Games) and a successful 2019 Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, Lord Winklebottom Investigates is set in the 1920s, and inspired by the works of Agatha Christie (the Poirot books) and Arthur Conan Doyle (Sherlock Holmes).

Investigating the murder of an old friend, Lord Winklebottom and Dr. Frumple must unravel a series of mysteries and dark secrets, with a story featuring strange characters and offbeat humour influenced by Monty Python and Blackadder.

You'll also find puzzles to solve while you're on the case, as well as a cast of animal NPCs to interrogate, all rendered in a hand-painted 2D art style. Lord Winklebottom Investigates is coming to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Switch, and PC on 28th July, priced $18.99/£15.99/€18.99. Check out the trailer below.
