A whole host of characters, detailed locations and a fiendish mystery to solve. Can you piece together the clues and discover the truth?
-Dim & Tom
Fantastic and Attention Grabbing
Usually I do not play games on Newgrounds, just watch the movies, so I don't have to fiddle with controls, mechanics, etc to see the end of something.
But I saw this first on Tom Fulp's BBS post and thought "Huh? A detective game by the Super Flash Bros.? Maybe I should check this out". After playing "Indigo Prophecy"/"Farienheight" for the PS2 (seriously, a great game that could inspire you guys with future games like these. It's for the PC as well) , these mystery games revolving around a murder intrigue me.
Each character had a personality, each (except the janitor imo) had a reason to kill the guy and felt suspicious. The art was *incredible*, I had a hard time believing you made it in flash and not Photoshop. The little addition to mini games was fun too.
Things to improve on? The little girl at the beginning felt like she would have more to do, and was a little creepy. Ashame she kind of disappeared. It would be great to see some more emotion from the criminal at the end. Make him say why he did it instead of a questinair, making the viewer think "I can't believe this scum. He deserves this.". And personally, I would love it if you added more creepiness to it. The creepiest part was when I found the murder weapon. To have the viewer feel cautious to go somewhere/talk to someone because of the unknown would work great in this kind of game.
Overall, great and unique flash game. Extremely detailed backgrounds, interesting characters and plot, and a non tedious and fun way to play the game. Great job and will be looking forward to a slightly scarier sequel.
Just one problem
After much rigorous, and non saving, I was very close to solving the mystery.
This is in the office of the fun house.
After retrieving the "to do list" from the file binder, I opened the file binder again to see if I could find any more clues but I didn't, so I clicked open the map and choose the office of the fun house again, but was frozen to a black screen with the music continuing to play.
In addition to this, if you open the file binder again, after you get the to do list you can't go back.
Fix the bug and everything's A O.K.
I am extremely happy with this game. it is the best detective game i have played. its not to hard but not to easy, just perfect. the story line was very great and the ending quiz was a great addition. the music fit nicely. it was very addictive. i look forward to more great work.
Cool and Interesting
This was a really cool game. I liked the style and how you could interact with the environment. I didnt liek the girl... she was creepy... kinda expected her to say "come play with me forever and ever!" Then her eyes turn red and she starts laughing evilly, then the screen turns red and it says game over. Just my opinion. But about the game, its really cool, BUT HARD AS HELL!!!!
BEST. DETECTIVE GAME. EVER.
that was so amazing i cant believe it! it should be a console game. you chose the perfect music for all the situations! your amazing! AMAZING DAMN IT!
