One screen and a couple of artworks have turned up for Lexis Numerique’s latest adventure, Red Johnson’s Chronicles.

ScrawlFX reports the two women shown are the “cold and strange” middle-aged Theresa and “attractive, young call girl” Sonia.

Both know more about the Metropolis murders than they will admit at first.

Red Johnson’s Chronicles was announced in late 2009, and apparently hails from the same team as In Memoriam (US title Missing: Since January). This 2003 release cemented Lexis Numerique’s puzzle adventure chops, sporting alternate and augmented reality gameplay.

The game is due exclusively on the PlayStation Network in late April. Lexis Numerique is also working on survival-horror tile Amy, also for PSN release.
