App description: A Matter of Murder deftly weaves in rouge-like elements via a series of challenging logic puzzles. Add to this some beautifully stylized artwork and youll find yourself wondering where the last few hours of your life went. The Care and Feeding of Nerds

Its like every murder mystery dinner you ever attended, except way deadlier and way more fun. Trust us. FemHype

There is also a more free-form mode outside of campaign that generates a fresh mystery for the player. Its a big promise, but one on which Im hopeful A Matter of Murder will deliver.

ABOUT THE GAME
Zounds! One of the guests at an English house party has fallen victim to cold-blooded murder. Your weekend in the country is ruined! What choice have you but to ask your fellow guests probing questions, search the house, draw astonishingly insightful conclusions and solve the crime?

A Matter of Murder is a point-and-click puzzle game with rogue-like elements. The details of each murder are procedurally generated, so each case is different every time you play with progressively more challenging logic puzzles. A Matter of Murder can also randomly combine logic puzzles to provide seemingly endless surprises and high replayability.

Thanks to whoever found this. It's a shame it's been out a number of months and no one's noticed.

It's basically Clue/Cluedo for a new generation and definitely scratches an itch that I'd forgotten needed scratching years ago. Everything from the art, music, the fact that you can customize every character down to the way you like...very charming. Just played a coupe of rounds and I can already recommend checking this out if you have an affinity for the classic Clue(do). It's very, very good.

Great find! I'll have to check it out. Love a good Victorian or Clue-like mystery.

For a split second the opening music made me think of Fawtly Towers so we are off to a good start.
After playing it for a bit I'm loving it.
Seriously this thing oozes charm and attention to detail.

Only just found this. It really should have received more love and attention than it did. Perhaps the artwork and simplified UI put people off - shame really as its quite clever underneath the surface. Admittedly, only played a couple of rounds so far so don't know about depth but the random case generator should help provide longevity and the speed of rounds makes it perfect for mobile. Well worth the money.
