You are the titular Detective, who's more about books and brains that bullets and bourbon, and you've come to a tiny swamp community to solve a murder. That means finding clues, grilling suspects, and solving touch-based puzzles in a format similar to the popular Professor Layton games, but with an atmosphere that's more like a children's book written by Stephen King. The simple, flat art style and full voice narration go a long way towards lending the game a spooky atmosphere. It looks a lot like Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends as a murder mystery.
Solve puzzles, collect clues, explore the swamp, interrogate suspects... and uncover the mystery! Detective Grimoire is a charming and mysterious adventure, featuring a variety of strange and unique interactions with the bizarre residents of the swamp, a compelling and challenging murder mystery to solve, and an original award nominated soundtrack.
IMPORTANT: This game uses APK expansion files. Android 4.4.0 (KitKat) broke the ability to use these. However, it's fixed in 4.4.1+. If you have trouble opening the game, this could be the issue.
