PlayStack’s The Case Of The Golden Idol quickly became one of the major indie successes of 2022 thanks to its unique mystery-solving gameplay. Today, the developer has announced The Spider Of Lanka, a new downloadable expansion which adds three more mysteries to the game beginning May 4.

The Spider Of Lanka is set in 1741, one year before the first mystery of the core game, and it serves as a prequel to the original’s game. It takes place in the fictional Kingdom Of Lanka, an all-new setting which sits “thousands of miles” from the core game’s Blackfield.

The story follows the two men at the center of that first mystery, Albert Cloudsley and Oberon Geller, as they travel to Lanka on a maiden voyage. There, as the official press release puts it, they “visit [REDACTED], the Raja whose Priest has some startling information concerning the location of a [REDACTED] [REDACTED] [REDACTED], apparently [REDACTED] [REDACTED] to turn [REDACTED] into [REDACTED].”
