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---------------------
And now, an announcement. More than one, actually.

First of all... I'm getting married.
That's right!! My significant other has been reckless enough to say yes to my proposal. Poor her. Lucky me!

And... And this has a few implications.
I'm very sorry to say... I'm not sure I can find the words, but here it goes: this one will be the last episode for the Zombie Society Dead Detective series. At least for a while.
Unfortunately, that also means I'll stop working on the desktop game, too.

There. I've said it.

And I know this might come as a shock to you guys who have supported me until now. I'm very grateful for that, I really am.

But to prepare a wedding I'll need LOTS of money, to renovate the house we'll live I'll need LOTS of money, and this means I'll have NO money to invest in a Steam game in the foreseeable future.

Besides, I'll be totally honest with you guys: after two years, eleven episodes and lots of fun, I really, really feel the need to work on something else.
Zombie Society will always have a special place in my heart and I'll probably get back to it in time, but at the moment I need a break which is, most of all, creative in nature.

I will continue to make games. I can promise you that.
I have lots of ideas for the future, and I hope you'll keep on following me and have fun with me and with my next projects.

Sincerely, thank you for your support.

sad to see this series is ending without completing the father zombies storyline or catching the black cat but alas all things must come to an end.

the hints are always broken with these games i don't know why there aren't enough hints sometimes and sometimes the same hint gets repeated over and over again even though you got the clue the hint eluded to with this game one of the hints keeps repeating even though you got all the clues.

also it keeps telling me i got the "ywon assaulted the mayor" wrong even though he literally stabbed him.

It taking a long time to load anything. Can't really play like this.

Best point and click on newgrounds, congrats on your wedding !

Is this the same creator of the Mario and Luigi RPG Wariance?
