Everybody lies. But what makes you a good detective, is to know which lies to bite into, and which to ignore.

Because the murderer is among these people, and you are the lucky detective assigned to this mess of a case.

It's about the satisfaction of catching someone telling a lie, and getting every little detail out of a conversation.

Gameplay
Tell Me Everything is a text-based short-story adventure game, with a word-puzzle on top. It's a game about pushing your luck and gathering information to catch the killer.

Features

  • The game currently contains the first episode with three variations.
  • Simple point-and-click action. Can be played solely using the mouse.
  • Hint system available if you are ever stuck.
  • Mood-meter to track the suspects four breaking points.
  • Four calm jazz soundtracks.
  • New episodes in the works.

Episodes

  • Episode 1 : The Porcelain Paradox
    All three variations available at launch.
  • Episode 2 : The Horrors of Hospitality
    Release mid-June 2018.
  • Episode 3 : The Fiscal Freefall
    Release mid-July 2018.
  • Episode 4 : The Tormented Triage
    Release mid-August 2018.
  • Episode 5 : The Devil's Doorstep
    Release mid-September 2018.

Expectations
The murder mysteries are written to be around 30 minutes each, and since the game has a huge amount of dialogue, it is sadly not fully voiced.

Currently, the three case variations stack around 1-2 hours if you push through, and around 4-5 hours if you like exploring all the possibilities.

The graphics are crude, and the gameplay is simple. It is meant as a thin-mint of an interesting story, not a massive game.

Is it niche? Yes. Might this game not be for you? Maybe.

But for those who love unraveling mysteries, I hope you are up for a challenge or two.

Spoilers
Since this game is a murder mystery, we politely ask all streamers and YouTubers to either not reveal who the killer is in each case, or at least let your audience know that there are spoilers ahead.

Well, that was a really great crime-solving game! I think that the core gameplay - growing the vocabulary of the detective by asking the important questions - was a clever idea. :) I found it intriguing to get to know more and more of the background stories of the suspects. Quite often, such text-based games are not much fun to play because of bad working parsers or stuff like that, but that wasn't the case with your game. <3 Congratulations for making that one, I liked it very much. :) That's why I happily wrote a recommendation article about it on our blog and also uploaded a gameplay video of it. <3 Keep up the great work!

Best wishes,
Sebastian

Holy cow :D Thank you so much. I was really touched that you liked it, and will share the link to your page with pride :D

Hah, that's a kind and cute reply! Thank you so much! I'm always glad to see when game makers appreciate our little articles. <3
