Clown’s Secret is an adventure game based on classic movies of the silent age, giving new, modern life to those movies’ black-and-white scenes. It was inspired by 1947’s Monsieur Verdoux, directed by and starring Charlie Chaplin.

The game uses point-and-click navigation and a black-and-white 2D visual style. The player will follow Hal and Halbert, two detectives who are investigating the disappearance of a high-class woman just after her marriage.

Clown’s Secret had been influenced by such games as Monkey Island, Broken Sword, Machinarium and Broken Age.

The game is due to be released in Q4 2014 for Mac, PC, Linux, Android and iOS.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
