(Full title: The Man with the Invisible Trousers)

Have you ever wondered what it's like to fight a bear? Well, prepare to keep wondering, because this game has nothing to do with bear fights!

You are part of an elite detective team, but when your boss is murdered, who can you trust? I mean, Jenny wouldn't kill him, would she? Or Alistair? Perhaps it was Lily? Or maybe it was YOU!

The only way to find out is to put your detective skills to the test, in this mind-bending puzzle platformer.

By the way, the murderer changes each playthrough - use your brain to work out who the real killer is!


good start... but needs a little work

i liked the concept of the game... it reminded me of SHIFT. although there are a few bugs and glitches that you should clean up, but other than that great game. i loved the music but something is bothering me though... why DOES he have invisible trousers???? oh and P.S. now there is only 3 detectives :P

Overall a Great Game

For the most part this is an amazing game. Another great entry in the growing sub-genera of gravity platformers. This really reminds me of "And Yet It Moves" and "VVVVVV," but is distinct enough in gameplay and style to stand on it's down. The weird gravity mechanics are a little tricky to wrap my head around at first, but once I did I was having a ball. Gameplay wise it's nearly flawless, and probably one of the best examples of it's genera in flash. The only trouble I had was the story. The film noir style detective story seemed interesting at first, but it doesn't tie into gameplay at all. Sure there might be some metaphorical connection, like how a case is full of twists and turns, and only when you figure out how all the clues fit together can you progress, (IE puzzle=mystery), but even then removing the story would have changed nothing gameplay wise. Clues are given throughout the game, dropping hints in between level cutscenes, so an easy fix would have been to let the player choose who they thought the murderer was based on the clues given. Still, even with the disconnected story the game is a blast to play and is one of the best platformers to come out this year.

Thanks very much! Good input too, thanks for it all. Noted, should there be a sequel :)


Feel familiar from the first start, like I played something like this before.
All are good.


Fun game no doubt. The music was entertaining and the idea was simple and creative. I however take some pride in saying that I glitched the game, somehow I achieved the impossible by going through a wall. Then proceeded to get stuck. What I have seen has been interesting.

Awesome game

Only reason it's not a 10 is because i was able to glich inside a wall xD
