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…

This took me three tries to get it right... but the end was oh so satisfying

Excellent, as usual. I love the connection to previous games, and I still love that it loads and gives you more chances. The fat joke made me laugh out loud.

I love these games! The use of deductions and the possibility of being wrong make this point & click mystery series unique- you actually have to use your brain. This loses half a star for the graphics, which could be cleaner.


Muja responds:

Thank you!

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!

Muja responds:

Thank you a lot!
If you want to find miss Marghle, check the mirror accurately...
