Description

Unravel a thrilling mystery by exploring a strange and twisted mansion, discovering curious clues, interrogating peculiar suspects and solving unique puzzles.

Freya Fellow has been murdered. The lead suspect? A shadowy figure found looming over her body, wielding a knife. The problem? That suspect... is just a painting.

Investigate the entirety of Tangle Tower, from the bizarre and eerie gardens, to the cold and ominous crime scene at the very top.

Will you be able to uncover the secrets of Tangle Tower?

History

Tangle Tower began development in 2015, after the mild success of the previous Detective Grimoire game. SFB Games was able to secure some Creative Europe funding and was in the early stages of development, when they accidentally started working on a different game with Nintendo, Snipperclips.

After Snipperclips and then Snipperclips Plus was released in late 2017, work resumed fully on Tangle Tower. In March 2018, SFB Games was able to attend the three days of orchestral recording for the games soundtrack in Budapest.

After two years of hard work, SFB Games rleased Tangle Tower on September 19th 2019, as part of the launch line up of Apple Arcade. Then just over a month later, the game was released on Steam and Nintendo Switch.

Features

  • A fully voiced and animated cast of characters
  • Atmospheric original orchestral soundtrack
  • Beautiful digitally painted environments to explore
