In the game, the players become investigators for the Beaumont Agency, working together to solve mysteries. But this version of New Orleans is steeped in the supernatural, and even seemingly mundane crimes have a mystical edge to them. During their investigations, they must also deal with their own lurking personal issues, which are in turn connected to the overall storyline.
The Dark Quarter uses an app to drive the game, telling stories over a series of linked scenarios where the decisions of the players determine the course of the overall campaign.
Earlier this year, Lucky Duck announced plans to produce a mystery game based on the BBC series Sherlock (see “Lucky Duck Takes on ‘Sherlock’”).
