Nicely done. Keeps the player on their toes and thinking.

Rated. Very good game but dialogs and corridors are too long ;)

[spoilers] Why was the stable boy so nervous if he didn't commit the murder? Was he at least involved with the murder?

Anyway, pretty funny animations and nice background music. Perhaps you can add a map of the castle in the game.

actually, the murder case is different each time. Clues are generated for the "correct" (random) solution, but some lies are also thrown in randomly. If you were to replay the game a whole different murder case will probably have taken place ;)

Thanks for playing!

I liked the game, I solved the murder! Good job!

Nice job! Fits the theme really well and the audio was great.  I too struggled a little with the fighting but, other than that it was a great entry.

Thank you so much for playing

Very cool game ! Intersing game design splitted into 2 phases even if it's not really innovative.  The game is fun as you try to solve the case, It works with the theme, Graphics are understandable and audio is very pleasant ! My only little complaint would be that I didn't really get how could I solve the case "without a doubt" and so I just bet on the guy who was mainly targeted...

Thank you for your review and the (very valid) feedback! In principe the game will generate at least two unique and coherent clues for the correct answer, although that might not be very obvious from the players perspective :)

Awesome Game. The Audio Quality is so good, when i took the first steps in the game I turned around from my PC cause I thought the steps were from behind me xD

This game is kinda neat. I got my answers correct, but at the end I didn't know how the combat worked and  I died. Cool idea though!
