You will play as Eurico, the "Pizza Boy" from the title, and solve paranormal cases in the fantastic supernatural underworld of Lisbon with the help of a dedicated crack team and your mentor, the legendary occult detective Dog Mendonça. The game promises to feature beautiful hand-drawn graphics that mimic the style of the comics that it's based on and abundance of interactivity. It should also expand on the world created by Filipe Melo, the author of the comic.
Slated for release on March 4th for 19.99 euros, Dog Mendonça & Pizza Boy will make its way to PC, Mac and Linux.
