Where is the sequel?!


This game was recommended to me by my boyfriend after he noticed it on Apps Gone Free. He knows I love a good mystery game so he thought it'd be a win. I was a little more reluctant. I've only ever truly enjoyed one mobile game (A Dark Room for those wondering) so I wasn't sold on this one yet. But upon starting up the app and seeing how incredibly detailed it was, my heart began to sway.

You play as Detective Grimoire investigating a murder at a quite unusual tourist attraction. You meet several quirky characters all voiced exceptionally well. The game also features a few mini games and you are investigating and piecing clues together. It didn't feel like I was being led to a conclusion... It felt as if I was coming to it myself.
The game's overall artistic style works wonderfully with its dark humor. I wish I had the opportunity to play a longer version on a different platform (PC, console, etc.) but I would definitely recommend this game to anyone who likes an old fashioned mystery with a twist. This will certainly inspire the detective in you.

What a surprisingly good game!

This game is good. I like it a lot. I played it a while back and now I stopped playing it. I had a great experience playing this game. The story of the game is great and you really feel like you are in the game as a detective, searching clues in a swamp because of the murder. The thing that really surprised me and was the best feature of the game is that every character is fully voice acted and the people who did the voice acting did a good job. It made the experience way better. It is very rare for a mobile game to have voice acting! It really blew my mind! I also like that it there was also cutscenes too. One thing wrong with the game was that the game was too short. I had 100% completion in one play through and it was at least 2-3 hours. So, yeah an overall great game. Also, please create a sequel to Detective Grimoire, Armor Games! I want to see what the new one could offer by its story and new characters!

Desperate for a Sequel!!!!


This game is FANTASTIC. I love murder mysteries, but as someone who is easily upset by gore there's not a lot of mystery games out there for me. Detective Grimoire is the perfect balance of eerie, funny, spooky, and mysterious, and is absolutely addictive. The art is beautiful, the music is perfectly fitting, and the voice acting is absolutely PHENOMENAL--undeniably the best I've ever heard on any mobile game. The way you come to conclusions makes you feel like you're really truly solving the case yourself, unlike most games like this which holds your hand the whole time and guides you to a conclusion. The characters are realistic and three dimensional, the mini games are incredibly fun, and the story is ridiculously engrossing. This is one of my all time favorite mobile games and I'm practically BEGGING for a sequel!!!!!
