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…

I think this one is the by far my favorite episode! I really love the pixel design and cannot wait to find the games in Steam! Great job as always!

P.s. The only problem I am having is that I cannot find where miss Marghle went!

can't wait for the next episode

Muja responds:

Working on the new episode right now, should be ready and online before the end of this month!

omg, lovely references! Miss Marple, Poirot, is that Sherlock Holmes? Don't recognize the last one, haha! Is Wooh a detective after Arsene Lupin or something? Maybe Lupin is Wooh! (just started playing)

your stuff is always good. Tbe~ I love the goofy references, the mystery solving, the universe, story and art and it doesn't require me to pixel hunt or use moon logic (being very sick, it's perfect for me).

I normally like to save before the deduction part, but the autosave took care of it properly. Still gave a sort of feeling of stress though.

well, I am finally stuck, haha on the deductions. but i loved the little zombie names. I'm fairly certain i am correct, this happened after i went for both of the wrong endings. Going to try and replay as a new game from the start to be sure.

Muja responds:

Thank you a lot, glad you enjoyed this episode that much!
Hope you get well soon!

rotfl "Poiroar" and "Ms Margle" good show ol' chum! It's the little things that matter! Love the whole series, look forward to your newest endeavors! Thank you for creating them!

Muja responds:

Ahah glad you liked the names, and the games! Thank you!
