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…

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

Amazing as always, this may be the best in the series.
Looking forward to the Steam version, I will by it as soon a it's available!

Muja responds:

Thank you a lot for your kind review and your support!

i like all the detective zombie games

Muja responds:

Thank you, I like your review!

Always love playing games in this series. As usual, the game follows a rather linear plotline and always expects you to think of the unexpected. I'll be honest though, this one got me pretty stumped. If the series ever makes its way onto Steam I'll be sure to buy it. But until then, I look forward to whatever else you release on Newgrounds (when is the next one gonna be exactly).

Muja responds:

Thank you for your very kind review, and sorry for my late reply, but I've had a few health problems during the past few months (nothing serious, I had to have surgery but all is well now!)

Now I'm back to work, and a new episode should be online soon. After that, I'll be working full-time on the Steam game, I hope you'll like it!


Muja responds:

Thank you a lot for your review, I will!
