As engaging as a book, as visceral as a movie, this Flexible Tale™ comes to life with the click of your pointer. From the authors of award-winning interactive fiction and novels comes this new way of telling stories.

As the lead detective, you will:
• See, read about, and interact with a cast of characters, each with his own motive and agenda.
• Explore locations that are threaded throughout the story, linked by the murder.
• Question witnesses, determine which should be suspects, and follow up on the evidence that connects them to the murder.
• Enter items into evidence, then read and analyze the crime lab's reports that show the trail of deceit and violence.
• Present your case to the D.A. who will do his best to get a conviction. His ultimate success relies on your investigation.

Requirements: Read. Think. Select.

The Art of Murder

Sue Smither

An amusing puzzle. I was delighted by the variety of this app's presentation. The lab analysis worksheets and the floor plans bring a sense of real time reality to the game. It is thought provoking – or more so than just reading a “who done it”.

The tapping interface also added to the unveiling or the progression of the story.

Haptics unite! This is an early prototype of how stories will be told in the digital age.

The Art of Murder

Tapping - An unusual way to entertain yourself - a fun experience everyone should have. This app is a good balance of both reading a detective story and solving a puzzle. Once you figure out the plot direction the solution is very logical but still creative. Addictive. Looking forward to playing the next one.
