Lucky Duck Games announced Chronicles of Crime: 1900, a new game in the Chronicles of Crime - The Millennium Series, for release on April 29.

Following up on Chronicles of Crime: 1400 (see "Lucky Duck Launches 'Chronicles of Crime - The Millennium Series'"), the year 1900 version challenges players to take on the role of Victor Lavel, a young French journalist who has it in his blood to solve crimes. In this new standalone game, players must collect evidence and interrogate suspects as well as solve escape-room-style puzzles through multiple scenarios. If players get stuck, they can ask colleague Charlotte, who runs the “Puzzles and Riddles” column in Lavel's newspaper, to offer a hint.

This game works on the same mobile technology system used in the original game, but refreshes the material for the setting (see “VR Meets Board Game in ‘Chronicles of Crime’”). It is for one to four players, ages 14 and up, and plays in 60 to 90 minutes. Chronicles of Crime: 1900 will retail for $29.99. There will also be a Launch Kit available that comes with 6 copies of the game, a poster, a shelf talker, and a POS standee for $149.95.
