A dark corruption scandal in the heart of the New York City's underworld for charismatic detective John Blacksad

The early 50s: Joe Dunn, owner of a boxing club, is found dead. Meanwhile, rising star Robert Yale, due to take to the ring for the most important fight of his career, has mysteriously disappeared.
Sonia Dunn, Joe’s daughter, takes over the club and must deal with its financial woes. She hires private detective John Blacksad to investigate Yale’s disappearance and to find the missing man. This sinister case will take our investigator to the darkest, most dismal depths of New York.
With its anthropomorphic characters and its incredible 1950s feel, BLACKSAD: Under the Skin promises all the eerily dark adventure of a detective novel, just like the eponymous comic book series.
Investigations, searches for clues, fights, witness interviews: let your feline instinct guide you as you infiltrate the corrupt world of boxing.

Features:

  • An official and all-new story for BLACKSAD, set in the comic book series’ unique world, perfectly recreated for gamers.
  • An investigative narrative game with gameplay combining investigations, puzzles, quick time events (QTE) and multiple-choice dialog.
  • More than 30 characters, including new faces and old favorites, each with their own story and side quests.
  • An immersive world with a jazz soundtrack to rival the very best of Hollywood’s film noir.
  • Fans of adventure games will love its gameplay and narration while fans of the comic book series will be thrilled to rediscover the characters and graphic style of this unique world.

Good price for physical but beware, I heard this ran bad with switch port.

I ordered a PS4 copy as it was on my “to buy” list. But I’ve read devs have released a fix for switch helping game not crash and run better. I also found this on the devs page.

Just tested and it works fine. You may have a ad-blocker etc on. Try going to coolshop directly and search for it if you cannot open it via the HUKD link.

Cheers. Have you played it? Had an eye for it since announced but the rrp was a bit too high. I like the comics.

Me too, I'm playing it on PC, it's got the atmosphere and art of the comics so I'm digging it.

Nice one! That’s encouraging. Can’t wait now, lol.
Really wanted this, as love the concept and massive telltale type of games fan. Bought it on digital sale on Xbox One X a couple of weeks ago. It runs absolutely trash, extremely buggy, resolution low with no AA, slow and loading times are long.

Got it refunded via Microsoft thankfully. Will pick up the PC version if it's on sale for less than £10 in the future though as I'm sure it's good fun to play.

But please - AVOID the Xbox version just because of the performance issues (latest patch version).

In terms of consoles, all patched up, where does it run best? There are reports of performance issues everywhere I look, but I have not seen any comparisons. I have a Pro, X and Switch.

I ordered a couple of games with them that were shipped on the 12th and still no sign. I think they post from Denmark. I am sure it will arrive eventually, but if you are not prepared to wait best to avoid
I'm a huge fan of the comics, they're just amazing. Got the game on release on ps4, was unfortunately bugged as hell. Hope it's been patched, or else it's not worth 20 quid.
