27w ago - Alawar Entertainment Product Manager Polina Belavskaya officially invites fans to solve the mystery of Mountain Crime: Requital on PSN today.
To quote: Hello Dr. White, and welcome to Mountain Crime: Requital, a game full of questions to be answered. The only help you will have is fragments of old letters, memos, somewhat puzzling conversations with guests, and your wits.

This version of the game is complemented by new controls, a redesigned main menu, and tactile sensations.
