A classic murder mystery.

Player Comments

How in the world does this have the rating it has? Alright, let's review.

"A classic murder mystery."
Nope. This is far from a classic murder mystery, as a classic murder mystery has to at least qualify as half decent.

This was incredibly short, and I finished it in about thirty seconds. There were quite a lot of pages and links, but there was so little detail and about a sentence per page for most pages, there was just nothing to really read honestly.

When you hint for the player to use the human potion, that's just not necessary. I think a person might be smart enough to do the only thing that they can possibly do on the page.

Then there were the accusations. I didn't even need any clues, because you literally have to pick the right person or it just takes you back to the page so you can guess again. Not to mention there's only five people to accuse.

There was absolutely no backstory or emotion at all in this story. The low amount of detail contributed to the crap factor of this flaw.

What was the point of the animal potion?

Anyway, a game about investigating a murder mystery is an interesting idea in theory, but this was just fell flat in execution in so many ways. It's not even necessary to read anything, blindly clicking suspects until you happen upon the right one also works just fine.

Didn't talk to any of the suspects. Clicked on one of them randomly and got the murderer correct. Might as well not have bothered with the human/animal potions at the start because the rest of the game was no different than other mystery games.

If this was a newbie attempt: Hey, good try. You got the systems right, and you made a complete, if short, story. Try working on your description length and quality, and you'll be okay.

If not: Nnneughhguhgl.

The story was kinda weird. Potions? And the items really didn't do anything. It was obvious who the killer was though.

i love this game i just wish that it added more to the story like make the murder hide for a bit then you find out who it is

Fell flat, not enough detail in the story and the potions were pointless.

Wow, I was barely paying attention, and I still chose the correct dude.

If you use the animal potion on the page where you hit the link to the choice page it has no links. Please fix that.
