Fall Update 2018


Greetings, Detectives!

It's time for the leaves to turn colors, the wind to whistle through the estate eaves, and for a new murder to solve. Today's update includes a new puzzle to exercise your little grey cells. "Terms of Ensnarement" is available today! Was it Madame Dreary? Don Amore? Or did the innocent little Ward Constance concoct the devious plan? Only you can solve the crime!

Happy autumn and good sleuthing to you all!

Steam Trading Cards Have Arrived at the Estate


Greetings, Detectives!

Some observant sleuths may have noticed the arrival of some new inventory items. We are delighted to announce that A Matter of Murder now features some nifty trading cards, backgrounds and emoticons for your collecting pleasure.

And don't forget that every Halloween Frau Spillz decorates the estate with items that only appear in October. It's the perfect time of year to dust off the old deerstalker cap and make use of that trusty magnifying glass.

Happy Sleuthing, everyone!
