With the nationalization of the Iran oil industry and the establishment of the national government in 1952, the hands of the British had been cut off from the Iranian oil. Notwithstanding this, they try everything in their power to defeat the national government. Amid foreign and domestic acts of sabotage and attempts to overthrow the government in Tehran and Southern Iran, hidden forces in Northern Iran join to steal the Iranian oil. This is aggravated by the killing of the representative of Rasht, who was an advocate of the national movement, and of a number of police officers in Rasht and others dispatched from Tehran. Thus, detective Mohamamd Afshar is dispatched to Rasht to unravel mysteries about these actions which were against the national interests. In addition to learning about a number of gruesome murders, he discovers efforts to divert people’s attention to multiple crimes to prepare the ground for a coup. In addition to identifying the murderers, Afshar has to deal with the evident treason that is being shaped.
Following the formation of a national Iranian government in 1952, along with the nationalization of its oil industry, came a series of both "foreign and domestic acts of sabotage and attempts to overthrow the government in Tehran and Southern Iran," while "hidden forces in Northern Iran [joined forces] to steal the Iranian oil." Against this turbulent political backdrop, Devil in the Capital stars detective Mohammad Afshar, who is assigned to investigate multiple murders in Northern Iran.
The victims include two of his colleagues, as well as a known advocate of the nationalist movement in the city of Rasht, and the killer is showing no signs of slowing down. Complicating matters even more, Afshar's investigation soon uncovers preparations for a potential coup, and "amid all this, facing the Church of Satan poses the biggest mental challenge for him."
The protagonist is the same detective who starred in Murder in Tehran's Alleys 1933 (which was recently upgraded and re-released).
Like that game, Devil in the Capital is a traditional third-person point-and-click adventure, promising a wide variety of puzzles and minigames to solve, 27 different characters to interact with across 20-plus central locations, and numerous documents to read, including "newspapers, short stories, and old advertisements" to further flesh out this unique cultural backdrop.
Devil in the Capital is available now on Windows PC, exclusively on Steam.
