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

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!

- 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)

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!

Good game but I didn't get two medals: "One out of two" and "Lie for a friend". Is there anyone know how to get these two?

Muja responds:

To get the "one out of two" medal, you must make one correct deduction and one wrong at the very beginning, when you're in your office with Mr. Mitsk.
To get the "lie for a friend" medal, you have to make the correct deduction about Ghvnn, but you must NOT accuse him during the final scene.
Hope that helped :D

"That son of a brain !! He hung up on me", haha, well scripted lines and evolving text just like the last ZS game I played.

Muja responds:

Ahah glad you liked it! :D

Looks like there's another Italian around here...

I was honestly not expecting that much from this series, but oh boy was I wrong!
The premise is definitely interesting. Watching the small bits of how the world works is always enjoyable.
The game itself has solid gameplay, nice characters, funny dialogue, great art and SFX. It's also really challenging.
It has a few bugs, like the "One out of Two" medal (I have tried to fail only one of the deductions, but it really doesn't want to give it to me), or that old Firefox thing.
I absolutely love the way you portrayed the action in this game, and the way you get tips is nice too (Usually, I'd see the smart detective guy asking the dumb assistant for tips). Already played the Nine Deaths Cat, can't wait to play Death after death and Walls can bleed!
The only thing negative remark I have is the extremely tedious process of double-checking the evidence you found for each possible informer. I don't know if this is already a thing, but maybe you could add an option to mark certain evidence as NEW, or IMPORTANT?

Overall, this is a great game, and I can't wait to see what you can come up with.

Muja responds:

Thank you a lot for your nice review!
And, as a matter of fact, the issues you've found have been addressed in the following episodes!
(especially the double-checking of evidence during an interrogation)

Okay, so I'm not going to lie, I was a little skeptical of this game when I clicked on it. But turns out it's really a fantastic game. The graphics are rough but, it's suited for the game. If you changed them in any way it would probably ruin it. The game play was easy enough, but it was challenging. If you think you've done it all go back and re-look at stuff. I'm giving it 4.5 stars because I did have some difficulty with the movement's they weren't as fluid as I hoped. getting him to go where i wanted him to took a few clicks but once i hit the right spot he moved..... may be an error on my part however. But over all I really enjoyed this game.

Muja responds:

Thank you for your review!
As a matter of fact, many of the issues you find in this game have been fixed in the following episodes. I assume you've alreay played them, but if you haven't, there are two more episodes to this series - and more are on their way!
