The Catch a Killer case file mystery games are a one of a kind experience. Unlike our other mystery games, the Catch a Killer games are not role-playing and may be played solo or with a group. Instead, you step into the shoes of a famous criminal psychologist, Dr. Gold, and help solve whodunit by sleuthing a case file full of evidence such as interrogation videos, coroner's report, text logs, and more. This will provide you with hours of entertainment (~3-5 hours).
This game is for ages 15 and up for difficulty, and may be played solo or with a group of any size. This game is moderate difficulty, but it's a case file, so only play this if you want to sleuth! This is the instant download upon purchase. You'll have everything you need to play the game at click of a button once you purchase the game. No need to wait, no shipping fees. The boxed version of this game is now available - see the link below under 'helpful links.'
There are 14 videos to play during the game consisting of two videos from Detective Stone, 2 voicemail evidence videos, 9 witness interrogation videos, and a video of the basement of the Hackett Estate. You can download the videos from your account upon purchase, stream from YouTube or Vimeo, or download from Vimeo. The videos are able to be downloaded prior to the game - so no WiFi is needed to host the game. There is a corresponding website at Your Mystery Party that goes along with the game, as well.
Game release date: 8/4/20
PLAY SOLO OR AS A GROUP: there is a lot of flexibility on how to play this game. You can play by yourself and solve the case in one night or spread out the fun and intrigue over time and work on the case at your leisure. You can take your time and spread out the fun over multiple nights – this is a challenging game.
Alternatively, you can host a party (or two or three) and solve the case as a group. There are two ways to play with a group:
Detective Nicholas Stone of the Crowburn Hollow Police Department has asked you, Dr. Casey Gold, for urgent assistance with a homicide case. The murder has garnered considerable media attention and is now trending on all social media platforms.
Professor Theodore Hackett collapsed to his death in his basement in front of friends and family on Tuesday evening. It is 48-hours later, and it's crucial to break the case or the chances of the murderer getting away with it increase with every tick of the clock. The lead detective needs your expertise. Can you help solve the case? Detective Stone is counting on it

Had a great time doing this with friends virtually!! Unknown on Feb 28th 2021
A fun time for a team building event. My co-workers loved it. They really enjoyed that we could do this in the new normal virtual world in which we live. There was so much information with documentation and videos to keep the investigators engaged. Highly recommend. HEIDI BROUGHTON on Dec 11th 2020
A fun night for middle school and high school students to look over evidence to search through the details to "catch a killer". "We don't use codes we just us SnapChat" was my favorite quote from a student when trying to figure out the cryptic text messages. They were super excited when they finally figures it out. They struggled with putting together the timeline and it took a full 4 hours but most of the students followed the evidence to "catch the killer". Unknown on Oct 27th 2020
