Law & Order fan? There’s an app for that.
I don’t think I ever missed an episode of the Original Law & Order series so I have been delighted to see Telltale Games‘ Law & Order Legacies series for iOS devices. Episode three featuring an all-star cast of characters from the Law & Order franchise’s history now as Episode 3: Killer Smart is now available.
In Episode 3: Killer Smart, a gruesome murder is under investigation and the New York City detectives and prosecutors will have to deal with a manipulative suspect and his partner. You’ll have to decide how to handle this vexing pair and bring them to justice. “Killer Smart” will challenge players’ investigative & courtroom skills, and centers around an investigation of bodies that have been dumped along a lonely stretch of road in Long Island. The killers are revealed to be an intelligent sociopath and a dim-witted thug, who bizarrely try to represent themselves in court, with the sociopath trying to use his own partner’s weakness against him. For his part, the sociopath’s partner is fiercely loyal, so it’s up to you to try to separate the two of them.
Law & Order is TV’s top-rated and longest-running crime series consisting of storylines based on real-life crimes set against the distinctive backdrop of different law enforcement units. Law & Order: Legacies will include the likenesses of popular Law & Order investigators including: Lennie Briscoe (Jerry Orbach, Law & Order), Rey Curtis (Benjamin Bratt, Law & Order), Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay, Law & Order: SVU) and Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston, Law & Order) for what can be considered a Law & Order “Dream Team” of detectives and prosecutors.
You will feel like you’re playing the TV show, following dramatic twists and turns of criminal investigation, assuming the dual roles of police investigators and district attorneys. You will gather evidence and question suspects as police officers, then prosecute the case and cross-examine witnesses as attorneys with innovative court room game play based on moral choice. These moral choices made throughout Law & Order: Legacies lead to multiple endings in each case: conviction, plea bargain or not guilty!
“Law & Order has created some of the biggest character icons of prime time television, and we have the freedom to combine the most popular detectives and district attorneys from multiple franchises into our game,” said Telltale co-founder and CEO Dan Connors. “Telltale’s games are based on story and characters above all else and our model of episodic entertainment is a perfect match for the world of Law & Order.”
To celebrate the new release, Telltale is also offering a new “Multi-Pack” in-app purchase programme, whereby if you buy Law & Order: Legacies Episode 1 from the App Store for $2.99, you’ll then be offered the option to purchase a Multi-Pack of six episodes at a sale price of $12.99, a saving of $4.95 on the individual price of all 7 episodes.
