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.

1/8.

First story? I don't see the reason how this could be any good from the one's I've seen that are bad that are very good

A good story. I like how easy it was to finish, and how the facts were put in a succinct, list-like manor. Short, but still good.

This is a pretty good start. The plot is not too developed, but I like the murder mystery concept.

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.
