Discover the secrets of "The Sexy Brutale" casino mansion and its inhabitants as you relive the same mysterious and murderous masked ball over and over. The story is unfolding in real-time all around you - what is happening to the guests? Who is behind it? Can you piece it all together and end the loop to save them, and save yourself?
The Marquis is renowned for three things: his annual masked balls, his eclectic taste in friends, and his grand casino mansion - "The Sexy Brutale".
But this year's party is very different. Something truly terrible has found its way into the heart of "The Sexy Brutale", turning the ball into a nightmare where the staff stalk and murder the guests with no hope of escape.
And at the end of every day when the clocks strike midnight … the same day begins all over again.

Here are my impressions from playing the game.
As someone who does best in games where sharp reactions and fine motor skills give you the competitive advantage, I'm pretty unforgiving when it comes to games that involve puzzles.
A solution that is too obscure or pedantic in its required execution, minor missteps that force a reset and repeat of what has already been done, cutscenes or transitional dialogue that can't be skipped, are all things that cause my interest to disappear faster than the butter I put into my hot morning tea. On the other hand, games that are too simple with linear progression provide little satisfaction and reason to return to after a break.
So how did The Sexy Brutale measure up?
All aspects of the games visual design are stunning. The rooms are beautifully crafted with clear attention to detail and distinct themes as you move through different parts of the mansion. When it comes to exploring room items and decorations, instead of the common option of an alternative (i.e. first person full screen) view, Cavalier opted for thoughtfully crafted text descriptions. These are used masterfully to not only enhance the scene setting and provide the necessary information, but to also deliver constant entertainment thanks to their witty construction.
When it comes to solving the murders, although there is only one way to prevent them, there are multiple ways to discover the solution. I suspect the sensible, most efficient, and likely intended, way is to leverage your stealth skills and observe the characters from behind doors and inside cupboards whilst listening in to their conversations and self-talk. However, lacking the patience for such a considered approach, I tended to career around each area looking for pieces of the puzzle and trying to figure out how they all fitted together. The fact that I was still able to get to many of the solutions in this way is a testament to the game as a lesser one would force you into their desired pathway in order to succeed. Having taken this approach to solving most of the murders, I found I actually got to enjoy them all over again as I followed the characters on a subsequent play through and saw all the different ways you could have gotten to the prevention strategy.
When it comes to the complexity of the puzzles, I found them superbly judged with the solutions coming to me at just the right time; before they got frustrating, but still hard enough to be rewarding once figured out. I cannot even fathom how Cavalier get the puzzles and all the pieces of such an intriguing overall narrative to fit together so well through compelling character interactions; each of who have their own distinct chapters and stories.
With my slightly unstructured approach, play time was about 8 hours. That said, I still have two things that I have to collect to fully complete the game, and they keep me going back to test new theories on how to get them.
In summary, this is a really great game. Even if you are not a puzzle game fan, do yourself a favour and grab a copy of this gem. In contrast to a triple A FPS game where the joy of turning on a guy is shortly followed by a swear worthy respawn as a grenade magnet, The Sexy Brutale will make you laugh with its wit, smile with its beauty and walk a little taller as your superior intelligence is proven with each new puzzle solved on your way to an inspired, and unexpected ending.
Sexy Brutale is like groundhog day in a game. Set in a continuous looping day in The Sexy Brutale mansion which has been converted into a bizarre casino. Players take on the role of the elderly priest Lafcadio Boone.
Boone must hide, watch and learn stories about the other guests to save them from the murderous hands of the mansion’s staff. By discovering the key moments and methods how each guest can be saved and gaining occult-seeming powers linked to their masks, Lafcadio is able to explore deeper and deeper into the mysteries of the mansion’s past and inhabitants to uncover the truth hidden at the heart of The Sexy Brutale.
This is an original puzzle game that increases in difficulty as you progress in the game.
The game play is not as straight forward as it seems, as you may have to go over the same scenarios several times to find the answer. Giving you hours of gameplay.

Yes, this isn't the longest game in the world but there is an alternate ending if you play through again and find everything! The graphics are reminiscent of something like The Wonderful 101 or Viewtiful joe, and the soundtrack is so addictive especially the main theme( you will be humming it to yourself!)
Also this edition comes with the amazing soundtrack and a full colour manual which is nice to see these days!
Many times you will be scratching your head at what you need to do to save these guests but when you figure it out, it is very rewarding.
Get this thoughtful, sharp, sexy game! you will not regret it!
My only wish is that it was longer, however, if you're looking for something different, for something fun, humorous and mysterious, then The Sexy Brutale will surely provide you with several enchanting evenings.
