“The Last Act” by Adam Findlay, Dan Foster, Kevin Carthew, Oli Wood, Laurence Gardiner, Andy Butnariu, Jack Tanner, James Ferguson, David Rogers & Andrew Mackinnon.
Detective games often do not give players enough freedom to come up with their own theory about who did what, as just a couple of different explanations are shown, one of them being true. This jam game goes for a different approach: By exploring the hotel rooms and gathering evidence, the possibilities of developing your own theory about the crime and its course are also widening.
“For A Brief Flicker” by Howard Day, Ben Chandler & Jan Simon.
The oldschool “Star Trek” style of this game is so well-crafted that it could have been an official game about the cult series in my books. The captain of the spaceship was killed with a phaser weapon, so that you have to find the killer among your own colleagues. But when the corpse just disappears, you realize that there must be someone or something else behind this evil deed.
“Claude and the Phantom” by Simon Reid.
A ghost cat locked in a painting needs your help to prepare a special ritual, so that it can finally find its eternal sleep.
