IMPORTANT NOTE: This is more of a TECH DEMO and HAS NO END STATE. I'd like to see from your investigations what you think the actual crime is/ your conclusions!

A little experiment on a different depth of investigation in games. Didn't really intend to expand on this but a similar system may be implemented on a later project.

Another game jam done over the course of 3 days! Because I'm an insane person.

I thoroughly enjoyed this. Add more story, audio, an interactive feature, and an ending, and you are good to go! I can't wait to see the finished product. I think the crime is a bird-creature-thing that secretly supplies the eggs for Equestria, and lives in the sewers. However, she's become fed up with the uncleanliness of the sewers. No one cleans it anymore, so she cleans the sewers instead, and because she has no time to lay eggs, there is an egg shortage! Yeah. Weird, I know.

I figured out that the crime is calling this a game and posting it!!!

But seriously, there is some egg laying female that is used to living in caves that has taken over the sewers and is searching for her missing eggs. Perhaps an alligator that was purchased as a pet and then subsequently flushed when it got too big?

No, wait... that first thing: calling it a game and posting it

Definitely incomplete; there appear to be only 4 locations, no items to click on to look at or collect, the G/O/D on the upper left don't do anything when clicked or you type those letters (even with Alt). If I had to guess, the crime is that something non-pony has moved into the sewer and is stealing eggs looking for its own missing egg(s). Certainly fits the improv for the premise of retro point-and-click adventure + detective + my little pony. But why bother posting if you don't intend to expand it?

I'm guessing I've caused a bit of confusion in with this haha, on that I apologize and I'll make the changes on the description to make it more apparent what this is.
There is no end state. Really, this was to experiment with how exploration of a location via menus would affect game feel/ investment. A better word to describe this would be a tech demo.
Thanks for the feedback!

Its nice. I think there should be some kind of way to advance though, as after I visited every place, talked to every pony, and looked around everywhere, it got boring.

And to be honest, I don't really know what the crime is...
