Done in 48 hours for LudumDare 37

It is not the best dinner party when one of the part-takers end up dead. Four suspects and only you can find out who did it. Interogate, investigate do whatever it takes. Don't let the wicked ones escape the justice!

spacebar - accept
1 - talk to suspect
2 - see crime scene report
3 - verdict! put the killer behind the bars
4 - colorblind mode
m - turn off/on music

The graphics were really just disappointing. a LOT of the spelling hadn't been checked before publishing. And BTW if the player chooses the wrong culprit it comes up with an option for a solution but highlighting it and pressing space DOES ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

Weak and unappealing to the player.

I liked the idea of the game, but I think it is a bit too simple. Maybe it could become a detective simulator, if there were more cases, more advanced questioning, and a way to gave some suspects lieing. The first time I pointed the cook, because I imagined he was lieing, as everyone said that he smokes but he denied, so I belived he was nervous and lied. But overall, I liked the game, interesting and pleasing, with a few more cases, deeper investigations and more specific questions for the suspects, it could be a really good detective game.

i liked the game and it was a cool style, i think that if you could be capable of doing better images you will do amazing games.

I do enjoy these puzzles that really get you thinking, but granted this was just too easy. I'm sure it wasn't intentional, but you can just pick a suspect, if you're wrong, choose return and pick another. Repeat until you get it right. I bet if you forced it to end after picking wrong and made some kind of randomizer for the problems this would do great. Good effort
