Disclaimer: This is the Ludo Narra Con 2021 Demo of the game and therefore it is best to realize that the following gameplay footage of Mystery Murder Machine is either an alpha version, beta version, early access or, demo of the game. Therefore, the footage you see may or may not be featured in the final version of the game, also there may be some noticeable bugs in the game.

If you are into Murder Mystery’s then I have the perfect game for you. Murder Mystery Machine is a point-and-click game that is ideal for any detective in training or murder mystery buffs. In Murder Mystery Machine you play as Cassandra Clarke, who at the top of her class in the Academy is sent to work with Nathaniel Huston in the DCA as his partner. On your first day, you and your partner are summoned to solve the death Of John Daniels, a beloved politician. 

The game uses a keyboard and mouse as its controls. One of the cool things about the game that I liked was that you get an interface that is like a pinboard in which all your evidence goes on to. From there you look at the evidence and link the evidence together to get more dialogue and do what you can to figure out the mystery.

I love the concept of the game and it would be a fun game for those who don’t game but love murder mysteries. The only thing that I would hope to be added would be a hint option. It doesn’t have to be a system where each time you get it right you are awarded a hint, but maybe one hint per crime scene would be nice. As I started getting stuck and couldn’t figure it out, I started putting things together in the hope of making a connection.

So if there isn’t going to be an option for a hint button, then you have got to pay attention to fit the clues together. So ideally this would be a great game to play on stream so that your chat can help you solve the crime. 

Murder Mystery Machine will be releasing on PC via Steam so be sure to wishlist the game so you get notified when the game releases.
