Detective: A Modern Crime Game will have you working just like a real detective as you attempt to solve five very different but carefully interlinked cases that will lead you to either a shocking conclusion, or aimlessly down a twisting rabbit hole.
Detective: A Modern Crime Game (Portal Games) is a brilliant new concept on the crime game genre, encouraging players to break the fourth wall and use every resource they can get their hands on to help solve each case included with the game.
Using an innovative online web-portal, players will join the Antares National Investigation Agency and work to piece together evidence and information gathered from crime scenes, items and persons of interest. The web app will allow you to match fingerprints, follow leads and clue yourself up on interviews with victims and suspects. It is also actively encouraged and almost vital that notes are made throughout, as information and evidence will come from all sides and it is up to you to filter it and ensure you are following the most constructive leads!
This story rich game will test your detective skills with the five included cases and while they may seem completely unconnected at first, your detective skills should soon find a link that joins them together and pieces together a bigger picture. The inclusion of the online element has made this puzzle-solving detective game a unique entry into the crime genre.
Suitable for 1-5 players, this will keep you busy for hours as you take on the role of real detective and attempt to solve the cases and find that hidden link! So, don your Deerstalker, grab your pipe and prepare to become a modern day Sherlock Holmes!

Excellent brain burner.
Being a fan of detective TV shows, I was intrigued and knowing my partner has a love of them too, I picked this up. <br /> It is a fantastic game. <br /> This game ticks every box and will scratch any and every investigative itch you have.<br /> There is a very neat use of an online database, thereby needing a laptop or tablet, which I know puts some people off, but it's never intrusive, and will not solve the case for you.<br /> You'll need old fashioned teamwork, have to take notes, and although it is solo-able, I think in this case many heads are better than one.<br /> It is totally immersive. The first case took almost 3 hrs, (which is average I think) but you won't notice it going. <br /> Highly recommended. <br /> <br />
