===WARNING!===
You don't have to be dead to play this game!

===GAME DESCRIPTION===
Zombies have conquered the world, and they have established their own society.
It's a lot of fun, but even zombie society has its criminals!

Meet Margh, undead private detective, and help him solve the case at hand in this funny point and click adventure!

Interrogate the suspects, find clues and combine them as if they were items in your inventory, form your own deductions and find the culprit... or accuse the wrong zombie!

===FEATURES===
- At least 30 minutes of gameplay, even with a walkthrough
- Voice acting! (sort of)
- Instantaneous translation from 'zombiesh' to english (be warned: zombies tend to say "brain" a lot!)
- Hint system that will give you a hand when you're stuck (simply talk to Ghvnn)
- A deduction system that will make you use your brain!
- different endings depending on your choices
- pixelated original art
- a complete walkthrough (you'll find it in the options panel)

===AUTHOR'S NOTES===
Some of you guys might have played "Death after death", which is an interactive comic in three parts that you can find here on Newgrounds.

This game acts like a prequel to that, so you don't have to know that story to enjoy this adventure.

I tested the game several times - like I've never done before - but if you find a bug I've missed please let me know and I'll fix it right away.

If this goes well, it could be the beginning of a new series of short, self-contained cases like this one.

So let me know what you think with your reviews - suggestions to make the game better are always appreciated!

That's all, hope you'll have fun!

This is AWESOME! Will there be more? Would really love this to be turned into a series. Keep up the good work you have heaps of potential!


Muja responds:

Thank you a lot, and the answer to your question is "definitely".
I'm already working on the next case! :)

Greatgame, but I've encountered a problem where my saved game won't load at all? Frustrating when you get a fair ways in and have to restart.


Muja responds:

I'm sorry, I'm well aware of that bug but I never got to fix it because I've been so busy.. I'll hopefully do it today.
Thanks for your feedback!

I love this game and I hope you can make more like it. I am baffled that this isn't rated higher. I like the interactivity that's included. It really feels like you're solving a crime.

Thanks a lot for your kind words, and I'm really making more of it!
I'll launch a Kickstarter campaign next week, and if it succeeds (probably even if it fails) I'll make a full-lenght game, made of three other cases like this one.
Thank you for your review!

Made it to the end where you have to come up with a conclusion and I'm at a lost even with the walk-through. Lost a star for my sitting here for 15 mins lost as heck. Otherwise quite fun.

Muja responds:

Yeah, you probably didn't find all the clues before arresting the culprit.
I guess it can get frustrating when you only need one clue or two, but you don't have the slightest idea where to find them.
I'll consider a way to improve the design for the next case.
Thank you for playing, and for your feedback!
