Reviews for "Zombie Society - Dead Detective"

Good game but I didn't get two medals: "One out of two" and "Lie for a friend". Is there anyone know how to get these two?

Muja responds:

To get the "one out of two" medal, you must make one correct deduction and one wrong at the very beginning, when you're in your office with Mr. Mitsk.
To get the "lie for a friend" medal, you have to make the correct deduction about Ghvnn, but you must NOT accuse him during the final scene.
Hope that helped :D

"That son of a brain !! He hung up on me", haha, well scripted lines and evolving text just like the last ZS game I played.

Muja responds:

Ahah glad you liked it! :D

Looks like there's another Italian around here...

I was honestly not expecting that much from this series, but oh boy was I wrong!
The premise is definitely interesting. Watching the small bits of how the world works is always enjoyable.
The game itself has solid gameplay, nice characters, funny dialogue, great art and SFX. It's also really challenging.
It has a few bugs, like the "One out of Two" medal (I have tried to fail only one of the deductions, but it really doesn't want to give it to me), or that old Firefox thing.
I absolutely love the way you portrayed the action in this game, and the way you get tips is nice too (Usually, I'd see the smart detective guy asking the dumb assistant for tips). Already played the Nine Deaths Cat, can't wait to play Death after death and Walls can bleed!
The only thing negative remark I have is the extremely tedious process of double-checking the evidence you found for each possible informer. I don't know if this is already a thing, but maybe you could add an option to mark certain evidence as NEW, or IMPORTANT?

Overall, this is a great game, and I can't wait to see what you can come up with.

Muja responds:

Thank you a lot for your nice review!
And, as a matter of fact, the issues you've found have been addressed in the following episodes!
(especially the double-checking of evidence during an interrogation)

Okay, so I'm not going to lie, I was a little skeptical of this game when I clicked on it. But turns out it's really a fantastic game. The graphics are rough but, it's suited for the game. If you changed them in any way it would probably ruin it. The game play was easy enough, but it was challenging. If you think you've done it all go back and re-look at stuff. I'm giving it 4.5 stars because I did have some difficulty with the movement's they weren't as fluid as I hoped. getting him to go where i wanted him to took a few clicks but once i hit the right spot he moved..... may be an error on my part however. But over all I really enjoyed this game.

Muja responds:

Thank you for your review!
As a matter of fact, many of the issues you find in this game have been fixed in the following episodes. I assume you've alreay played them, but if you haven't, there are two more episodes to this series - and more are on their way!

Very good prequel to the Zombie Society interactive comic. I liked how this showed how Margh met his sidekick.

Good things about this game that I liked a lot:

-The setting of Zombie Society - an interesting unique world created by author of these games.
-Good plot.
-Multiple endings.
-Interesting characters.
-Many medals.
-Good graphics.
-Animated cursors.
-Excellent music, very fitting tho the theme.
-Good tutorial. Not that it is required for anyone who has played an adventure game before, but it shows how thoughtful the author is to little details.

My personal favorite part of this game is the shootout scene. It's always interesting how adventure games handle action scenes if they even dare to contain them and I must say this game managed that perfectly!

There are a few things that could be improved like there is no full screen and replaying the game to get alternative endings and medals takes a lot of time, but I liked the game so much that I cannot reduce the score for these small things.

Looking forward to more Zombie Society gaming including the commercial game!

Muja responds:

Thank you a lot for your detailed review, another one of many that are making me really happy! :D

It's true that action scenes are very hard to replicate in a point & click game, but many others have done it before me, so I had a pool of ideas to choose from. TellTales series have done a lot in this regard, especially in their Sam & Max series.

Anyway, I'm very glad you like my games that much... And I'm happy to say that many more are on their way! :D
