'The Rise of the Golden Idol' Is A Detective Game Coming to Nintendo Switch, Playstation, Xbox and PC In 2024 - Screens & Trailer

The detective saga returns in The Rise Of The Golden Idol with 15 new cases to investigate across 1970s America - an era of hedonistic pleasures, peace movements and microprocessors.

The Rise of the Golden Idol is a detective game, which like its predecessor allows players to investigate scenes freely and build their own motives

The Idol Rises… 300 years later

Three centuries following the unspeakable fate of the Cloudsleys in The Case of the Golden Idol, the legend of the eponymous relic has all but faded. Now it is carried only in small whispers, uttered as an obscene myth. Some are determined for this to change.

The Rise of the Golden Idol follows a tenacious relic hunter on a quest to unearth the powerful artifact that - if the legend is true - can reshape the world.

As the observer, you must investigate 15 strange cases of crime, death and depravity. Like before with The Case of the Golden Idol, you are free to investigate however you wish and build your own theory. 

You must make sense of a grand mystery that unravels across an age of hallucinogens, fax machines, parapsychology and TV guides.

Enlightenment seekers, convicts, chat show hosts and corporate middle management will all have a role to play in the wider mysteries that unfold. Like always, many of these subjects will have their own motives. Some will be carrying more than agendas. 

With an enigmatic trailer filled with hints at the sequel’s wider story, as well as some riddles of its own, The Rise of the Golden Idol has officially been announced for PC, consoles, and for the first time, on mobile through Netflix app.

“It has been an overwhelming and unreal 2023 for us at Color Gray,” said Andrejs Klavins, co-founder of the Latvia based studio. “Nothing could be more perfect than ending the year with the reveal of our next full game, The Rise of the Golden Idol.” “There is so much of the Golden Idol’s story that we want to explore, and the incredible response we continue to receive for The Case of the Golden Idol, and its two DLC expansions, serves as the ultimate motivation to continue writing.”

The world has changed dramatically - the sins of humanity have not.

Players unfamiliar with the franchise can play the first three scenarios of The Case of the Golden Idol for free in their web browser.

The Rise of the Golden Idol is coming to PC (Steam), Mobile, PlayStation, Switch and Xbox in 2024.
