Pixman and developer Darjeeling announced a free demo for upcoming puzzle-adventure Labyrinth City: Pierre the Maze Detective. The Demo offers the first two levels of the game, but it’s only available on Steam, and only from May 13-14, as part of the Digital Dragons Indie Celebration on Steam.

The demo includes the first two levels, with the heroic Pierre searching the story-book world for the elusive Mr. X. In the first level, players will search the museum right after the Maze Stone has been stolen. In the second, Pierre will hunt clues through the town’s streets.

Labyrinth City’s level design resembles classic Where’s Waldo picture books, and is adapted from the Pierre the Maze Detective picture book series. Gameplay involves searching for hidden objects and interacting with the environment to find the right path forward. The full game will include a diverse range of locations and biomes, including tree-top towns and haunted houses, over ten total maps to explore, adapted directly from the original book.

Labyrinth City: Pierre the Maze Detective is coming later this year for PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices. A release date has not yet been announced. It’s been rated E for Everyone.
