About This Game

ARE YOU UP TO THE CHALLENGE?
Murderous Muses is an old-school FMV adventure that rewards patience, exploration and puzzle solving. It’s not an interactive movie game but it does have over 3 hours of FMV!

WHO KILLED MORDECHAI GREY?

It’s been a year since the unsolved murder of Mordechai Grey. In tribute, Gallery Argenta is about to exhibit six of the artist’s most famous portraits and prime suspects - the ‘Murderous Muses’.

Play as the gallery’s night watch and explore its secrets over three days, whilst paintings spring to life at night, fuelled by the mysterious and scarce ‘Eyes of Mordechai’.

See through Mordechai’s eyes to question suspects, unlock police interviews, and finally deduce who’s the murderous muse…

  • Solve a murder mystery that re-rolls every time you play
  • A rich new story setting, Mirlhaven island
  • Explore a procedurally-generated gallery and share seeds with friends
  • Puzzles unlock bonus treasure rooms
  • A persistent ‘trophy room’ to store collectibles
  • Final score cards and run times for bragging rights

A spine tingling new murder mystery from the creators and writers of The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker, The Shapeshifting Detective and Dark Nights with Poe and Munro.
