You don’t have to be dead to play this game


Another entry in the “Zombie Society” series.

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 his partner Ghvnn, and help them 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!


- 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)

AUTHOR'S NOTES-------------------

Hello guys!!

In this game you'll find a major update to the deaduction system.

You've always been very good to my games, and for that I sincerely thank you.

But many of you lamented that the deaduction system wasn't clear enough, so I hope this new upgrade will solve that problem.

Now go help Margh solve his first murder case ever!
