What is behind the game’s sudden success?
One of the reasons behind the game’s recent success, of course, may be related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. During the past few months, more and more players entered the game segment due to the amount of entertainment it can provide during the quarantine. However, the reunion of streamers on the PC version also is one of the factors behind the success of the game. Many and many Twitch streamers have been making live streams for the game betting on distinct ways to play it. Among the novelties, we have the use of Discord during the matches. Through Discord, players are able to hear each other during the investigation. This greatly expanded the amount of interaction between players during every match.
The mobile version of the game is as fun as the Desktop version. The biggest plus is that players on Android and iOS can get it for free. However, if you want to experience the game in all its fun, we recommend you downloading Discord to mount private sessions with your friends.
