Jovian Audio and MadHeadGames collaborate on yet another game, set in the Jazzy New Orleans. Here we tried to bring the player closer to the sound of this cool and vibrant town – all the while not letting you forget that there’s a murder mystery about!
MadHeadGames’ latest release – Cadenza: Music, Betrayal and Death is crazy fun to play, and we really had a blast working on this game! ENJOY!
“Listen… for the sound of betrayal! You’ve returned from school to visit your father at his famous Jazz Pepper Club during Mardi Gras, but everyone is hypnotized. Have they heard the wrong note? Explore the musical mystery in Cadenza: Music, Betrayal and Death!”
“Cadenza perfectly tied in the theme of music with dark murder mysteries, what an unforgettable experience!” … “It’s 1941 and you have just arrived at your father’s Jazz Pepper Club. However, the scene that greeted you was not what you have expected – all of the customers and the staff in the club are frozen in place. You have to dig deep behind this mysterious case, hunt down the resurrected musician who is the figure behind all this madness while at the same time, surface all the secrets of the Dixie Peppers Band! Cadenza has this very unique and creative storyline centered around this person who uses music as his murder instrument. In addition to the strong main plot, there is also a handful of solid story twists.
As with all other games from Mad Head, Cadenza featured epic sights and sounds. The visuals are outstanding as usual, the scenes are well-lit and locations are expertly crafted. Characters look realistic with professional, not over-the-top voice overs. What is special about Cadenza is its jazz-vibe; all of the scores and soundtracks are original and very beautifully composed. The audio in Cadenza is perhaps the very best in the casual games industry.” allaboutcasualgame review
