About this game
Developer: Pendulo Studios
Content Rating: Mature
A dark corruption scandal in the heart of the New York City's underworld for charismatic detective John Blacksad! The 50s, New York City: Joe Dunn, owner of a boxing club, is found dead. Meanwhile, rising star Bobby Yale, due to take to the ring for the most important fight of his career, has mysteriously disappeared. Sonia Dunn, Joe’s daughter, takes over the gym and must deal with its financial woes. She hires private detective John Blacksad to investigate Yale’s disappearance. This sinister case will take our investigator to the darkest, most dismal depths of New York. With its anthropomorphic characters and its incredible 1950s feel, BLACKSAD: Under the Skin promises all the eerily dark adventure of a detective novel, just like the eponymous comic book series. Conduct the investigation in your own way. Make use of your feline senses as you hunt for new clues. Make decisions on behalf of Blacksad and influence the outcome of the case.

Blacksad’s enjoyable (both intentionally and unintentionally), and I must confess to being devastated at not reacting quickly enough to save the life of a character at the very end of the game. Still, it’s not the game it could—and should—have been.
Personally, I’m willing to put up with a lot of jank, meaning Under the Skin was mostly worth it for me. However, I fully recognize I’m likely in the minority. Blacksad: Under the Skin will probably only appeal to fans of the comic or anyone looking to jump into them. This is too bad because the developers had a chance to bring a whole new audience to Juan Diz Canales and Juanjo Guarnido’s excellent series about a street-tough cat detective and his universe of interesting animal pals.
Blacksad: Under the Skin podría ser un juego de aventuras más que convincente si estuviera mejor terminado. Si la escritura, la música, el doblaje, la dirección y el diseño de las mecánicas hubieran sido correspondidos con más solidez desde el punto de vista técnico y artístico. Aunque la historia termina con contundencia es evidente que el juego en sí está lejos de estar acabado y es fácil suponer que este no es el resultado que esperaban los verdaderos fans de Blacksad.
