When everyone is a suspect, and a killer is on the loose, is anybody safe?
A mansion near Dundee, 1923. Susie Sato finds herself investigating a murder when her great-uncle and host Lord Hamilton is found dead in his private museum, an ancient Egyptian burial dagger protruding from his back. Could it be the curse of the dagger, an object Lord Hamilton was warned not to remove from the tomb? Or could something else have caused his death?

Fun way to spend an hour. Interesting.
Whether or not you enjoy this game will very much depend on what you are looking for. Unfortunately, this game was not a match for us, although I cannot criticize it. It is an impressive production for what it is.
So, what is it? It's mainly watching a narrative with graphic art images. The characters tell you the story, while you watch. Every now and then you are asked to have a quick little interaction with the game, but for the most part you are a spectator. For us, this wasn't enjoyable. When we play we want to solve puzzles and to interact with each other, so we found the long narrations tedious and we just wanted to get involved.
It is visually very pretty, and I think it it would be an interesting game for older kids/early teens. Although it wasn't what we were looking for in a game, it's still very interesting and unique - and well made.

As with other games from Fast Familiar such as Bad Altitude and National Elf Service, this game was another engaging and pleasant experience. The graphics were top notch, the narration was immersive (which truly makes it seem like you are watching a murder mystery movie rather than playing a digital game) and as always, there were humour added to the dialogues which is always a signature with this creator.
If you are a puzzle enthusiast and are just in it for the puzzles, you might feel like the puzzles might be too easy or there aren't too many in the game. However, a murder mystery is more focused on the storytelling and plot so if you are a fan of production and immersion, you should definitely give this game a try. The twist and turns will definitely give the murder mystery fans the satisfaction when they finally catch this culprit!
