About The Sexy Brutale

About this game

Welcome to the mansion.

All the guests are being murdered — horribly! — at this extravagant masquerade party set all across the sprawling and bizarre Sexy Brutale casino mansion.

Then at midnight, the clock re-winds, and the grisly pantomime all plays out again in exactly the same way.

You awake on the floor of one of the rooms wearing a mask with a bloody handprint across it. It protects you from the worst of the evil that lays across the mansion, but you can only watch, spy, and try to learn each guest's secrets so you can save them from their bloody fate.

MURDERS MOST HORRID

10 unique and grisly murder scenarios

  • Witness evisceration by arachnid! (highly creepy!)
  • Observe expiration via immolation! (they burn!)
  • Behold perishing through perforation! (the spike goes right through!)

...and so many more murderous mysteries to solve!

TIME-LOOP MURDER MYSTERY

Everything in the mansion happens on a 12-hour loop, simultaneously

  • What is the gunshot heard across the mansion at 3:45?
  • Where is the bell that tolls after 6 pm?
  • Why are the lights flickering every day after noon?

...it will not stop until you stop it!

MANSION WITH STRANGE GUESTS

Is everyone in this place a weirdo?

  • Clock master Sixpence - a genius mechanic who cannot outsmart a bullet?
  • Blind artist Trinity - so beautiful and talented, but gets into a sticky situation?
  • Brutish bouncer Clay - not strong enough to stomach a shot of pure spider venom?

...they just won't stop being murdered by staff in gas masks!

UNLOCK BIZARRE MASK POWERS

Every life you save grants you a new ability!

  • Not a second to lose? The Clockwork Mask grants control over time!
  • Murderers whispering their secrets? The Moth Mask picks up the quietest of sounds!
  • Ghostly goings-on? The Voodoo Mask opens your eyes to beyond the grave!

...but for every new power comes new responsibilities!

ENJOY YOUR STAY!

Groundhog day Meets Masked masquerade

A neat little time loop game set in a masked ball party. A puzzle oriented day where you have to figure out how to stop everyone from being killed. The most recent example i could point to would be sort of what deathloop tried to do.

A cool mechanic, fun aesthetic, great soundtrack, and a cool story. Glad I saw a review on this ages ago, because I got to play it, love it, then recommend it to friends. Different from your standard point and click puzzle in a great way.

This is an atmospheric puzzle/adventure game. The gameplay isn't overly complicated or tedious, but I wasn't really a fan of how the story ended. Regardless, if the game sounds interesting to you, then it's still worth checking out, as it does have quite unique gameplay.

A fun game with nice artwork, cool system, sadly sometimes a bit buggy. However the game makes up for it by just being pretty fun overall. Very nice and to my knowledge somewhat unique concept.

Although it is called "sexy", but actually, it doesn't contain any sexy themes. It is a very fun puzzle game, and you can enjoy it. Recommend.
