Mystery Match Village x Death on the Nile


Mystery Match Village x Death on the Nile

Outplay Entertainment, the UK's largest independent mobile developer, has collaborated with Agatha Christie Limited to launch a special Death on the Nile integration into their acclaimed Mystery Match Village mobile game, a match-3 puzzle and hidden object adventure title.

The limited time event brings a fresh take on the famous characters and locations, and allows gamers to unlock the new case, based on the iconic 1937 novel Death on the Nile, upon completion of the earlier level 'Case 1: Theft at the Manor'.

Players will step into the role of assistant to the master detective Hercule Poirot, journeying to 1930s Egypt aboard the S.S. Karnak, and will help unravel the classic murder mystery under his expert tutelage. This includes questioning suspects, searching for clues, and solving puzzles to earn Poirot Points that unlock cinematic and narrative scenes, in-game boosts and rewards, and exclusive exotic world decorations. This special event is supported by a Season Pass featuring a free and premium option, which will remain available for any new players coming to Mystery Match Village until April 2022.

Death on the Nile is one of my great-grandmother’s most celebrated works, and we’re pleased to see our partnership with Outplay Entertainment bring the story to life on mobile," says James Prichard, CEO of Agatha Christie Ltd. "We collaborated closely with Outplay Entertainment from early on to ensure the game reflected the essence of the characters and the story. Fans of Agatha Christie love a puzzle, so what better way to tell the story than by giving them the opportunity to work directly with Poirot and solve the mystery themselves.”

It’s an honour to bring one of the Queen of Crime’s most coveted novels to mobile for the first time," says Douglas Hare, CEO of Outplay Entertainment.
