(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!


Entertaining, glitchy, and repetitive

As I played through the game, it lacked the story it seemed to promise to deliver. But sadly, lacking; I completely agree with Narmolania. The game was also rather glitchy, multiple times, getting stuck in the middle of the wall on the border.

could of been better

the game was a great idea, i loved playing it but the story was weak and was too simple. this game could of been great but it died half way

it was ok, bit simple i thought tho, yet creative :) good work

how did he fight crime if he spent his life in tha

but at the end you should have to click on who you think did it and if you're wrong you lose. the puzzles werent too challenging and had nothing to do with the story. should try to connect the clue finding and the puzzles and gameplay better next time. it also would have been nice to have a james did it ending. another thing was it was too repetitive. the only actual clue to who did it was always the weapon and it was reveiled the same way each time. all in all it was ok, but the story line seemed like something you whipped up in a few minuts as an excuse to make the gameplay and puzzles into more of a game. good game. but you should work on the plot and make it more satisfying. actualy make us have to figure it out. one last thing Id like to mention is that the dialog was pretty much the same for every ending. depending on who did it it should end differently. maybe set up for a sequal. 6 out of ten for creative and fun gameplay. but I have to dock some points because the improvements to be made were obvious and many.

Mate, despite your disregard for the shift key, you're totally right. This game was made at speed, but I'll spend more time on a sequel!

aw a shame

I thought we were actually going to have to solve the case using the clues you gave us. Music was alright but it got repetetive after a while, only a few of the puzzles were actually that hard, just walked through the rest. Like the invisible stuff, trousers, sledgehammer etc. Good last line, if a bit lacking in drama. It should have been "but the real mystery is... (pause for emphasis maybe zoom in on his "face") why do I have invisible trousers?". It was alright but these games never really struck me as that good.
