In Murder Mystery Machine, you join the D.C.A., the District Crime Agency. Your mission is to help detectives Cassandra Clarke, the young recruit, and Nate Houston, the jaded detective, solve cases no one else wants to touch. It all begins when politician Frank Daniels is found dead in what looks like a burglary. Our two heroes will soon find themselves involved in a series of complex and interconnected crimes. Will you be up to the challenge and uncover the truth?
You will have to investigate multiple crime scenes putting your analytical and deduction skills to the test. Collect clues, connect evidence, interrogate suspects and find the truth at the heart of your investigation.
Murder Mystery Machine is the third game to join the Microids Indie label, after Fallback and the Kingdom Majestic compilation. Microids Indie is a publishing label aimed at providing support to indie studios and developers with the launch of their games.
