Usually I'm dreading murder mysteries as there's always a lot of reading involved. I'm glad we tried this last night as it was a very different experience. The entire game was designed in a PDF. You won't be needing any outside searching tools. By solving the puzzles, your solution will be your clue to where you have to go or who you will have to meet next. It did get a bit confusing for us at times since there was no way to confirm if we were correct or not. This led to different choice paths. It was still fun to backtrack what we've missed as there were always new evidence that we've found along the way. We really liked the color schemes of this game. The black and white made us feel like we've been transported back in time. The red light gave a bit of the seductive mystery sensation. If you have Spotify, definitely use their playlist to create the atmosphere!
