Pause with me for a moment, if you will, to ponder on a question: why is the murder mystery such a rare and poorly delivered genre in gaming?
RPS Feature They'd make a killing
Tod in Venedig by Thomas Mann has absolutely nothing to do with Mord in Venedig (Murder in Venice). This lovely little freebie is a point-and-click murder mystery which doesn’t really care about artistic inspiration. Or spelling, to be brutally honest. Or even clipping, though these are matters you should probably ignore. If you loved being a sleuth on the Grim Express, you’ll love solving this fresh murder.
There you were minding your own business and enjoying the luxury and efficiency of the Soviet rail system, when everything went dark and the nice gentleman sitting opposite you got stabbed in the heart. Now the trip to Moscow would be too depressing to bear, unless, that is, you decided to solve the murder on the Grim Express. Or, better yet, actually play sleuth-’em’-up Grim Express.
It’s a wonderfully atmospheric game set in a train, that’s strongly reminiscent of the Last Express, was made in an astonishing 48 hours and you can directly download for your Windows PC via this link.
