Midnight Murder Mysteries

Post by Black »

Last year, I came across a game on Kickstarter called Midnight Murder Mysteries and if you love Clue/Cluedo, you'll like this.

Image

A VIP guest is found dead on a luxury cruise ship and it's your mission to solve the case by solving:
WHO killed the victim? There are 12 Suspects with 2 additional*
HOW was the victim killed? 12 Methods
WHY was the victim killed? 12 Motives

The 2 additional suspects aren't technically suspects
The first is an Accident where the motive itself would be "Accident"
The second is that the killer is the victim (they committed suicide)

Image

The players move around the ship gathering as much information as they can from the suspects, the ships crew, different locations and all the information is provided in booklets - Not 100% sure but I'd assume the murderers can lie in each case

There are 3 modes of play:
1. You can play co-op so all the information gathered is shared and you must piece together the solution
2. You can play against other players, spending more actions to not reveal crucial information (perfect for bluffing)
3. You can play Solo, you VS the case

Just got confirmation from the creators - The suspects can be questioned and they MUST tell the truth, only the murderer (if there is one) is the only person allowed to lie

Just got confirmation from the game's FaceBook page that the game is coming to Kickstarter in June

I also found out the 38 parts of the crime (The Suspects, Motives, and MO)

The 12+2 Suspects are:
Andy - Barbara - Charles - David - Emily - Frank - George - Helen - Ivana - Jack - Katrina - Lionel
None (In which the Motive is Accident) - The Victim (suicide)

The 12 Motives are:
Accident - Ambition - Blackmail - Compassion - Debt - Honor - Inheritance - Jealousy - Madness - Secret - Theft - Vengeance

The 12 MOs are:
Bludgeoning - Crushing - Drowning - Drugs - Emotional Shock - Fall - Gunshot - Poisoning - Stabbing - Strangulation - Suffocation - Slit Throat

If some celebrities highlighted the game, those could help. A big if.

I joined Discord to plug the Kickstarter in some servers. I tried.

This sounds very interesting, in particular due to the solo mode.

I think I might back this one. I'll so some more research before making my pledge.

I don't think the Kickstarter's minimal price will be achieved in the remaining days. I hope I'm wrong!

The premise of the game sounds intriguing.
