Our Recent Games

Discover the early cases of the legendary detective Hercule Poirot.

In his early years as a detective, Hercule Poirot is invited to a reception by the influential Van den Bosch family, for the announcement of their daughter’s engagement. But tensions amongst the guests run high as a snowstorm descends on the town, trapping everyone inside the manor. The happy event is soon marred by the murder of one of the guests…

Welcome to Murderous Pursuits, a multiplayer stealth-em-up of aristocratic proportions. In this delightful game, your host, Mr X, cordially invites you and up to seven other players to stab the living daylights out of each other.

Set on board a Victorian-era ship, that can fly – it’s ‘the time travel’, don’t you know – you get to play in one of several ship-board locations and must identify and kill another player amongst the passengers, without drawing too much attention to yourself or having the guards witnessing the diabolical deed. What gratification! But if this seems too refined for your gentile tastes, you must do so while evading your own murderous hunters. The swines!

Join the District Crime Agency in Murder Mystery Machine– an isometric, episodic deduction game. Explore crime scenes in complex dioramas, organize your evidence effectively, and blur the lines between right and wrong to present your case. Do you have what it takes to be a real detective?

Fresh-faced rookie, Cassandra Clarke, is teamed with a reluctant burnt-out detective, Nate Huston, to investigate the murder of a prominent politician. While all evidence points to a botched robbery, something more sinister is evolving in the corridors of power that send both detectives on a collision course that could end both their careers.
