DETECTIVE: Stella Porta Case from JanduSoft and solo dev K148 game studio in which you’ll be investigating three strange missing person cases. The first case you’ll take on will be of Edurne Maya, a mother who has gone missing under bizarre circumstances. The police were tipped by a neighbor who reported hearing a woman screaming. When the police arrived, they found two bodies. They were confirmed as Edurne’s children, ages 7 and 8. Nothing in the scene has been touched, and your task will be to collect all of the evidence that is needed. This and the other two cases seem to have a connection in common due to the Stella Porta corporation.
With the game being played from a first-person perspective, you’ll control your character with the left analog stick as you look around with the right one as needed. You’ll have to interact with objects by pressing the R2 button so that you can find new information and clues that can help you get a bit closer to finding out the truth. When you collect evidence, a white line will appear around the object, and a yellow marker will appear. Your notebook will mark the evidence you’ve found so far, along with some basic information about each one.
Once you’ve collected all the available evidence for a case, you’ll have to return to the police station to order the photographs of all evidence in chronological order. You’ll have to place them in the order in which the crime took place. The table will contain the secondary evidence collected during your visit to the crime scene, which you can consult as much as needed. Once a case is solved, you can exit through the door to take on the next one.
Trophy-wise, this one has a full trophy list with a Platinum waiting for you. And since it’s also a Cross-Buy title, if you have a PlayStation 5 console, you’ll be able to download both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5 versions of the game at no extra cost. Each list has 10 Bronze trophies, 3 Silver trophies, and 9 Gold trophies for you to work on. It’s not a difficult one since trophies will pop as you start each case and find all the evidence you need. But if you want some extra help, you can check out this DETECTIVE: Stella Porta Case Trophy Guide.
DETECTIVE: Stella Porta Case in which you’ll be investigating three strange missing person cases. As long as you collect all evidence, take any testimony from a witness, and pay attention to the photographed evidence, you won’t have a hard time solving each of the cases in a few minutes. And therein lies the game’s main issue. There’s not much to do in this one, and even if the twist at the end could lead to some interesting scenarios, the game abruptly ends with nothing else to do. It’s a bite-sized walking sim that is not going to be for everyone, that’s for sure. DETECTIVE: Stella Porta Case is available as a Cross-Buy title, so your $10.99 purchase will allow you to download both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions of the game at no extra cost.
