Collect clues in a museum to find out why a man was murdered there. This started as a test to figure out the difference between the basic and advanced editor, but then I got into writing it. Have fun!

Edit: Be sure to click on 'Interrogate' and 'Investigate' on the first page.  Once in your inventory, you can use them on the main story pages to get more information.  Once you have used your skills, be sure to go back to the main story page to continue.
PS: don't worry too much about 'winning' as some of the less than perfect endings are humorous as well.

I'm a bit disappointed.
While I enjoyed the aspect of the murder mystery plot and found the setting good enough. The grammar was pretty good, but one of the main things that caught me off guard was the length.

I don't pick up much emotion from these characters. I just don't feel much for them. More detail about the characters in general would have been nice to flesh it out better, but I suppose it was sufficient

I suppose this qualifies as a storygame, but the incredibly short length just makes me feel like I could write something just as good in an hour. The only part that I felt had any effort put in were the silly pointless endings and the detail of the clues.

I'm disappointed in the writing style. Like JMGskills stated, it felt really serious at some points but the endings were silly and make little to no sense. I was entertained through the majority of the story, but at the end you sorta lost me.

Having interrogate and stuff as items and not choices was something I liked. It made it seem more interesting, to me at least :)

But... the very short length and bad endings made me give it a 2/8.

It was a good game. I liked the interrogate/investigate options(Helped me believe I was a detective). I liked that, for the most part, the spelling was good and you added a little humor. Also, I liked that it was a pretty good mystery and that when I used my items most of the time it went to another page.

There were some problems though.

The game was very short(Which in retrospect isn't too bad but left me wanting more). The mystery, though interesting in the beginning, kind of fell off at the end. I know you were going for funny but I thought that this was a serious game(What with a man getting his throat slit) and for it to just end that way was kind of disappointing. Also, to add to the experience, in my opinion, it would have been nice to have pictures.

All in all, it was a good game but some of its flaws held it back.

I hated it. It didn't make sense, and it didn't give enough time to solve. It took random people and just put them in there. I hated it

There's no way to actually solve this. Very little choice and doesn't make sense.

I spent about 15 minutes trying to figure out a way to work the game with the items. This isn't very well thought out. I'm not 100% sure if it's because I'm new to this website, or if something really went wrong in the execution of the plan. I love the idea though! I'm also not really amused with the last page. That totally made me question all that I just played, and not in a good way.

Nicely done, but it quite short. I enjoyed this murder mystery though, and I'm looking forward to more done by you.

Very cool to have the investigate and interrogate options as items! I really liked that! Pretty short, but enjoyable.
