Agatha Christie: And Then There Were None

Written by Agatha Christie, the world's best-known mystery author and Queen of Crime, this classic story is brought to a new generation on the Nintendo Wii. Appealing to a broad audience, this platform opens the door for adventure games on console.

Using the Wii's original "Wiimote" controller, gameplay in traditional PC adventure games can be taken to a whole new level of interactivity. For instance, players will have the freedom to control their character's actions, such as using a digging motion to unearth clues, or spinning the handle of a safe using the Wiimote; and the introduction of timed puzzles where, for example, players must race up a set of stairs from a boat docked below.

"We are very excited to take this new direction with our adventure titles and are certain that our fans will find Agatha Christie: And Then There Were None to be a perfect fit for the Nintendo Wii," said Richard Wah Kan, President and CEO of The Adventure Company. "Many PC adventure game fans are having a great time with the Wii and we'd like to be the first to deliver them games they love on a console they've embraced."

The storyline revolves around ten people, all strangers to each other, who are invited to a lavish estate on an isolated island. Through a recording, their mysterious host accuses each of his 'guests' of murder and proceeds to exact justice by becoming judge, jury and executioner... The tension mounts and dark secrets are revealed as one-by-one the number of guests systematically dwindles according to the ingenious plan of the unseen killer.

We need more games on Wii which stand out from what they have on ps3 and xbox360. It's pointless to have call of duty on a system which its strength comes from an innovative controller instead. Games like trauma center and mama cook off have more potential. I hope this is a crime solving game which uses the Wii controls well, like pointing at objects and picking them up and turn them around by twisting the controller vertically to see a finger print on a drinking glass or something. Any developers reading this must know, people don't buy the Wii for the power, they get it for its innovation. So give us new concepts rather than developing sub-par watered down versions of 360 games.

A mystery game like this on the Wii is a good idea. I mean if people have bad computers then this will be good for them.

I wish companies like Dreamcatcher and Adventure Company would create titles that are original for the Wii, instead of PC titles.

Oh my god, I read this book for school, it was ok. It would be a nice game if there's a lot of blood and gore.

I'm all for Agatha Christie and other whodunits on the Wii. I just hope that there's more mystery than "fetch quests", as was a problem with "Murder on the Orient Express".

There was a movie made in like the 50s with same name and plot, whether it's different we will see.

Game Maestro, I couldn't agree with you more. I think those games are coming- I heard that the Wii has the most exclusives in development right now.

Oh HELL no! I had to read this book for school and someone ruined the ending when I was 5 chapters to the end.

It's taking developers for DS games a long time to realize there is a touchscreen down there. Hopefully DS's trouble will make Wii's development curve down.

A very interesting non-Nintendo game. I love strategy games, and I should check this out.

Cool something new for the Wii. Nintendo are doing a great job of catering to audiences of all genres both casual and hardcore. Good work.

If you already know the solution to the mystery, would it be any fun? And who is the person shown in the pics? Probably Lombard.

This game came out on PC about 2 years ago, and I'm kind of excited they made it for Wii. The person in the picture is the character you play that has been written into the game, and the ending differs from the book.

I've played through it on PC. It's a pretty good adventure game, was worth a play on PC because it was a budget game, and it's a fun revisiting of my favourite old genre (point'n'click adventure). But I fear this is going to get very poor reception by Wii players because it has literally no replay value, and it doesn't take that long to finish (depending on your perceptive/logic skills).

What are you thinking dumb "wii love wii". The book is awesome, you have such bad taste. I'm sure the game will be great, too.
