E-One Studio, an independent game developer, today announced that its first PC adventure game, Hoodwink, is now available on Origin. Plunging players into the dysfunctional dystopian world of Global-01, this post-epidemic adventure title puts players in control of Michael Bezzle, a small-time thief trying to make good and impress the girl of his dreams in a battered megalopolis.
However, the all-powerful corporation Unicorp has other ideas, and set against a retro-futuristic backdrop, you’ll have to deal with bureaucracy, ruthless lawmen, chocolate-loving cyborgs and a vicious killer plant before you settle with the girl. Featuring challenging puzzles and a bizarre cast of characters, Hoodwink is filled with intrigue, conspiracy and a good dose of mischief.
Chris Kuok, known fondly as CK in the studio said:
“Hoodwink was a load of fun to work on. With a mix of acidic humour inspired by Grant Naylor’s Red Dwarf and Terry Pratchett’s Discworld, anyone looking for a good time will find plenty in our comical tale.”
Hoodwink is a classic comic adventure game that is deployed through the E1 game engine which delivers atmospheric cel-shaded graphics that bring the murky backstreets of Global-01 to life. The game is further enhanced by a haunting soundtrack from award-winning composer Leon Willett.
Hoodwink is now available for PC, exclusively on Origin, and priced at $14.99. Localized text versions are available in German, French, Simplified Chinese, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
