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)


The most famous detectives of Zombie Society – Margh and Ghvnn included – have been invited to a party in their honor. But the party quickly turns out to be a trap, and the detectives are challenged to find a hidden treasure. What’s worse, some of them disappear without a trace…

Fun one

AS always you make some fun games and this one being a point and click you made it even more fun, So there were a few things that have impressed me with this one, you do deserve some cheers for this one though, you showed some good effort and you brought fourth some nifty ideas and you made those ideas work well. You had some good Representation here and the Initial concept Contains some good elements.


It's broken the wrong game plays. :(

newgrounds player launches the wrong game...

Great game!

BUG: If you enter last room without making your choice for the "bottom deduction",
the game will choose for you.

this is by far the most frustrating game in the series why did it have to be this hard? not even the walkthrough told you how to open the secret room until recently also having the black cat be the villain all the time is getting annoying quickly i said i wanted to see her again in earlier games but now i'm sick of her having too much of a good thing is a bad thing at least let me catch her and lock her up in one the games damn it!.
