I knew by the name of this game in the upcoming box that this one would be a banger.

The name of this QL made me think it was some Jackbox-esque party game. This is so much "better".

There is something honestly charming about this. Between this, Her Story, and Guitar Hero, FMV is coming back baby.

Reminds me of the DVD games you find in garden centres over here in the UK, as to be somewhat based around that.

Can't stop laughing at the tone of the detective, so insanely odd. For some reason I've seen the guy playing Jenk on TV before but can't place him.

I'm pretty sure it's parodying old English murder mystery shows. Which always had flamboyant and over the top main characters.

The show would obviously be called Hi-Jenks be in the same time slot as, and lose disastrously to, Countdown.

That dude in the duffel coat, forlornly looking out across the water, after tooting on his hookah, which he brought inside a box, to the woods... What a way to spend your friday night.

I backed this and regret nothing.

It's made by a guy called Tim Follin who composed music for many C64, Spectrum and NES games in the 80's and 90's.

I'm also getting the feeling that GBeast have never seen Midsomer Murders.

Jenks is basically if Chris Tarrant was a detective. The mannerisms are nearly identical.

Haha that is spot on!
