Soundtrack Out Now! Free upgrade for all existing customers!

Hello everyone!

We've just released the soundtrack to Detective Grimoire as DLC to the main game! Our composer Raphael Benjamin Meyer did an amazing job, and his work really shines in the hands of the talented musicians he brought on board to play for us.

We've also added a Soundtrack Edition which includes the game and the soundtrack DLC, at a slightly discounted price.

As a special thank you to everyone who already bought the game, we've upgraded you all to the Soundtrack Edition! If we hadn't, then the DLC would have had to be full price to all our early supporters, compared to the discounted bundle that new customers can get, and that just wouldn't be right.

We've also just released the soundtrack to our other game here on Steam, Haunt the House: Terrortown, also from our amazing composer Raphael Benjamin Meyer!

We hope you enjoy them both!

Short and simple, but worth your time to play through. Artwork and voice acting is excellent, and the detective mechanics are a lot of fun.

There is an option to turn off hints early in the game. Do it or the game will be way way too easy.

A charming Point and Click Adventure. Story is short and good. You have 9 suspects and to find all hints and clous to find the killer. Its feels a bit like Scooby Doo. So thanks i had 3 hours fun i give this game 87 %. I hope there will be more games in the future. Thank you for reading and hopefully enjoy like me.

This game is fantastic.

Detective Grimoire is a point and click mystery adventure where you play a detective trying to solve a murder.

Story wise - 5/5 There is silly humor, enough twists to keep you guessing and a suprise ending.

Graphics - 5/5 for a point to click, it gave me just a little difficulty. The "sparkles" that normally show in an area wern't always obvious. Sometimes, they were non-exsistant. Animation was smooth, colors were pleasing to the eye.

Replayability - 0/5, honestly. It's a pretty short game, all achievements are available in one go-through. There is a "To be continued", so it might be possible to want to refresh on the story.

Price point: I purchased this for $1.74 on the Winter Sale. I do believe it's worth it's $6.99 price. The game left me with chuckles, a want to play more. I hadn't even realized how much time had past, I was so absorbed into the game and it's story. I like that a lot of it didn't make much sense to start with, it's almost as the main character figured it out at the same pace I did.

For a small point and click, this was well worth the price, on sale or not and to have in anyones library.

9.6/10 - An Overlooked, Underplayed Mystery Gem

I really loved this game, it was extremely well done! My only complaint is that it was only about 3 hours, and I really took my time with it. The best part of the game, hands down, was the voice acting; real top notch quality!

As Detective Grimoire; you will explore more than 20 locations, find clues and question a plethora of well voiced suspects. The puzzles are pretty easy but extremal enjoyable! In some cases you even have to test clues to determine the chemical makeup of the residue left behind. This and other unique features make this game stand out within the point and click genre.

Overall, I would pay $5-7 for this solid 3 hour game; It's got lots of polish and was executed in a seamless way.

A short but fun murder mystery game. Took me 3 hours to complete. (Left the game running for several hours.)
It has fun writing and a nice looking graphical style. Try to figure out who the murderer is by finding notes, clues and so on. Some puzzles/mini games need to be completed, but they aren't really challenging or complex. The characters you meet are mostly funny and trying to find out who is the culprit is exciting.
