The Dead Case (Difficult)

Share Collapse

Author Comments

A town full of death.
A haunted town, these days. Literally.

You are one of the victims, a ghost that can't remember his own name. Can you solve the mystery of your own death, and those in the town around you?
FAQ: http://www.sonic.net/krewine/deadfaq.htm
Game includes: Inventory system, interactive characters, painted backgrounds, extensive plot, Passwords (so that you can have a break to eat cheetos), sly commentary, and more.
It is a large game, the size reflects the content. It is NOT a simple action game, or spoof, or parody, but an extended mystery to be solved.

This is the difficult version, without helpers.

It's still a good game, but I wouldn't call the changes "difficult." There's just a lack of the hint system and keyboard shortcuts for moving around. I really don't see the added challenge, as that's something that wasn't necessary and could even never be found if you don't look for that information.

Difficult version?

There's not much difference between this one and the original. I don't think it needed to be remade. It was perfect the way it was.


please make more it is awsome


Storyline: +2
Theme: +1 (a bit cliche but executed really well)
Music/Sound: +2
Art: +1.5 (impressive but a bit messy at some points)

Total = 8.5 = 9
This game is a masterpiece

Love this game

Have been looking for it all afternoon, cos I couldnt remember the title. It is tru, it really is a classic.

A beautifully drawn game, excellent story. music is really well chosen as well to create atmosphere.

And when you get stuck you can ask the library ghost.

I'll keep playing it. One of my favourites.
