New Case

Welcome to another case for McQueen and Dooley in the quaint little city of Twin Lakes. This time, our intrepid detectives find a note saying they should head to the Twin Lakes Botanical Gardens. What could possibly be in store? Vegetarian werewolves? A mean, green mother from inner space? A space ghost on a trip coast to coast?

None of those things!

But if you want more information, you'll have to play a little Darkside Detective to figure them out!

Chinese Localization

Today's update also adds Chinese localization for the Darkside Detective: A Fumble in the Dark! We've gotten A TON of feedback from chinese players that they'd love to play the game in their native language, so we're very happy to oblige them!

Nigel Makeship Plush

Alongside the release of the new case, we're also debuting the Nigel Makeship plush! Makeship is a crowdfunding site where you can pick up your very own Nigel the conspiracy theorist lake monster plush!

Here's how it works:

1) The campaign runs for three weeks!
2) Once we get 200 orders, the plushes get made!
3) Orders are only open during the campaign and can't be placed once it completes, so get them now!

The Nigel plush comes with a copy of the first game free, so if you're itching to find a way to introduce your friends to Darkside Detective, this is a spectacular opportunity. And if you're looking to snag that there Nigel plush for free (assuming the campaign gets funded,) feel free to check out our giveaway on Twitter!

Buddy Gets Good: Nigel Makeship Stream and Q&A

And if you want to have a little fun with the Makeship campaign and Nigel plush, come hang out in the Akupara Games Discord on Monday, April 18th! I'll be streaming two Darkside Detective cases to the Discord and hosting a Q&A session with the folks at Makeship at 4PM Pacific/7PM Eastern!

If you wanna learn how the Darkside Detective Twitter Adventure would end up becoming "One Flew Into the Cuckoo's Nest," we'll be answering that and other questions!

Exciting times to be a Darkside Detective fan! We've got one more bonus case on the docket, so look out for it in the not-too-distant future.

Happy hunting!

I don't see Case 8 as an option. Do I have to re-install the game?

Having the same issue as above, no download for the new case. I've tried checking for updates but nothing happens.

Is the update available in Galaxy only or something? The GOG backup download version is still version "1.0.13.2680d_(52003)" and the case file is listed as "classified". Or do you have to play some other case again to 'unlock' it?
Just in case anyone is still having trouble downloading the ´one flew into the cuckoo´s nest´ dlc here´s how it worked for me.
Go to GOG Galaxy and click on the game page.
Click the top right menu bar and instead of clicking ´check for updates´ go to manage installation and click ´verify/repair'.
This will download the DLC without losing your save data.

Hope this helps!
I'm also unable to get the update, and don't see it listed in the downloads.
I can't use GOG Galaxy - not supported on my system. I previously used the standalone downloaders and they worked, but they don't seem to be updated with the new episode.
There has to be a way to get this update without having to use GOG Galaxy...

We're investigating this and hope to have a fix, ASAP.

Thank you :)
It's up for Windows and Mac, but not for GNU/Linux, i'm sure it will come soon enough.
