The Darkside Detective: A Fumble in the Dark

Get your travel-sized ouija board ready — it’s time to re-enter Twin Lakes: America’s 34th most haunted city. Join Detective McQueen as he puzzles his way through six chilling cases, risking life and pixelated limb...


The Darkside Detective: A Fumble in the Dark

Twin Lakes is a cursed city — not so much “demons are tearing it apart”, but more like “always loses its keys” or “often steps in puddles”. It’s roughly in the middle of the cursed scale. However, it’s cursed enough that it’s a nuisance that someone will have to solve…

That’s where The Darkside Detective comes in. Whenever you hear a bump in the night, feel a tingle down your spine, or smell something fishy, Detective Francis Mcqueen isn’t far behind (no, he doesn’t smell, it’s just a figure of speech)

Following the events of The Darkside Detective, McQueen has to save his sidekick, Officer Dooley, to do what they do best: investigating strange, often paranormal, always paradoxical events.

Join them in this classic, frighteningly funny adventure to investigate six standalone cases.
