Following the formation of a national Iranian government in 1952, along with the nationalization of its oil industry, came a series of both "foreign and domestic acts of sabotage and attempts to overthrow the government in Tehran and Southern Iran," while "hidden forces in Northern Iran [joined forces] to steal the Iranian oil." Against this turbulent political backdrop, Devil in the Capital stars detective Mohammad Afshar, who is assigned to investigate multiple murders in Northern Iran.

The victims include two of his colleagues, as well as a known advocate of the nationalist movement in the city of Rasht, and the killer is showing no signs of slowing down. Complicating matters even more, Afshar's investigation soon uncovers preparations for a potential coup, and "amid all this, facing the Church of Satan poses the biggest mental challenge for him."

The protagonist is the same detective who starred in Murder in Tehran's Alleys 1933 (which was recently upgraded and re-released).

Like that game, Devil in the Capital is a traditional third-person point-and-click adventure, promising a wide variety of puzzles and minigames to solve, 27 different characters to interact with across 20-plus central locations, and numerous documents to read, including "newspapers, short stories, and old advertisements" to further flesh out this unique cultural backdrop.

Devil in the Capital is available now on Windows PC, exclusively on Steam.

its sad to think this is the engine that was used to make that hideous excuse of a game Limbo of the Lost- still don't let that stop you from using the engine, I've used it and it rates right up there with Adventure Game Studio and the community is extremely helpful (to the point of which they basically programmed all of Limbo without knowing that the guy developing it was stealing their codes and using it in his own game)

If you're gonna use this engine, play nice, respect the community and don't steal other people's content--- else Bethesda Soft will come and sue you too :D. (and possibly Blizzard)

Pretty cool to see that the Wintermute Engine is on ModDB now. I wonder if we'll start to see more 2D adventure games.
