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.
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!!!!!
Where's a sequel/more cases??
The only disappointment this game gave me is that there was only one case. I finished it so quickly(and loved it so much), that I had just assumed there was another case(or 3) that would follow. There needs to be more detective based games to play like this. One of my favorites had been the hector the inspector series and so I was very happy when I had found another detective game with voice actors and witty writing. Please make a sequel and having multiple cases, even if you release them later for purchase as they're completed like there is in the Layton Brothers: mystery room game, would be lovely.
