This is a story about you and some people in a building. Someone gets killed. See if you can find the killer. Good luck! Note: People have been commenting on the way it is, and it is not supposed to be a "real," mystery you have to solve. It's just for fun.

An ok story and good use of the items but it seems a bit strange that the police just randomly allow a member of the public to conduct their investigation for them, also I'm not sure what the motive was. A bit more depth to the story including more of a back story for the main character and other characters (rather than have them just listing their criminal histories it might be more fun to discover these through careful questioning) would improve it but in it's current form it's still quite enjoyable :)

You have a cool Clue type mystery game on your hands but its been executed poorly. The game is not irredeemable you would just need to fix the Links that lead to nowhere and write more story to make people actually care about solving the mystery like include interactions with the suspects or explain why the lead character is spearheading the investigation, make the little things count more for the players.
I've noticed this is the first game you've published (I assume) and all I want to say is work on the craft and soon you'll have something good.

The game is okay, but you have a few items that lead to broken links, causing the player to go back and forth a lot.

So...perhaps I was just unlucky, but this storygame took me to a dead end page with no way to proceed. When you examine the filing cabinet, there's an option which says "Click here once you've examined all the items". Except that I hadn't finished examining everything. I proceeded to examine everything else - by which point, of course, the Filing Cabinet was no longer in my inventory. Therefore, the player is now stuck with a bunch of useless items and no link to continue. I ended up just clicking Back, of course, but that's something that ought to be fixed.

It wasn't bad as a whole, although rather linear. You don't really get to know any of the suspects aside from a set profile. Actually, I felt as if I WAS a detective employed by the police rather than a random number of the public. (Why did they ask me to investigate? I don't know.)

It's a nice game to plow through, but it was missing a few things.

Nice concept but I would really have liked the game if it was longer and more interesting. Also, make it harder. A story is always better if it's challenging.

Awesome I loved it! Maybe add more words and stories?

It was a good effort on your part, but overall, it's not what you would call "great". Calling it "good" might be stretching it a bit, as well. The game provides very little evidence and doesn't "tie together" like a true mystery does. There's also a few plot holes. In the end, I just ended up pointing fingers at random people because there wasn't any real way of deduction. Good effort for the advanced editor aspects, but the plot needs some working on.
