Whodunnit is the easiest way to host your very own murder mystery dinner game! Take the work out of running a murder mystery dinner party with easy invites, character question screens, profiles, costume suggestions, and plenty of murder mystery stories in a variety of fun settings.

Everyone gets a character plucked from the story, such as a wild west gunslinger, a down and out jazz pianist, a spoiled rich kid and dozens more. Dress up, get your props together, then show up on the fateful night, in character and ready to play. Whodunnit makes it easy to host and participate in a murder mystery by keeping all the necessary information right at your fingertips. No printing out pieces of paper and shuffling through them at the party, just check your phone for your objectives and acting advice, then try to figure out who the murderer is and why they committed the crime.

+ Murder and all that Jazz: 7-21 Characters
+ Surf, Sand, Sun, Murder: 7-21 Characters
+ A Rogue in Rumplume: 7-21 Characters
+ Copper Creek Calamity: 7-21 Characters
+ Sabotage on Horizon Station: 6 Characters

More themes and character packs coming soon!

How to Play - Getting Started
Gather a group of friends (7-21) and decide on a murder mystery and download it to your device. Set a place, date and time for the murder mystery dinner party. You’ll need about two or three hours. Once you finish entering details, you'll need to go through each character and share the code with your friends. Prepare for your role! Read the information about your character to understand their motivation and why they might be the murderer. Get your costume together, some suggestions included in the app. Finally, show up at the location everyone agreed to. The host will unlock "Introduction" to get the party started.​

As the murder mystery host, it's your job to introduce the theme to the guests, kick off the investigation and eventually announce who committed the crime. Don't worry. We have all of your important lines written out on the app. You just focus on making sure you and your guests have a good time! Whodunnit mysteries are designed for the host to participate in the party, so even though you'll be coordinating the whole thing, you still get to take a stab at solving the murder!

Storytelling like no other!


I hardly leave any reviews but this app definitely deserved my review. First I’d like to thank the support team who answered my questions and gave me great ideas on how to decorate my home. They even shared a link to a sweet playlist! My guest and I loved how much we interacted with each other to tell a story. This has great storylines, characters, drama and mystery! And talk about those surprise twists at the end! Can’t wait to play another. Hopefully this app gets the traction it deserves. I see some reviews complaining about the price... I don’t mind the price compared $50-$80 you’ll spend on a murder pack online and that’s not even including decorations and food. In total I spent about $60 (theme, food and decorations). I would have spent roughly around $150 for all that but was able to save so much by using this app. Thanks devs! Keep up the great work!

Thank you for the lovely feedback!

Small Review but mostly Theme Suggestions


I have yet to organize a party, but all of the packs look very fun and are relatively cheap! I really hope to use a theme soon!

As for recommendations for future themes, I have a few:

-A college Greek Life theme (may be difficult to make 'family friendly' though)
-A high school Senior Prom theme (all characters involved could still be 18, so as not to involve violence against minors)
-Alternatively, a high school reunion theme
-A fairytale theme (preferably all from the same author, i.e. all Grimm Bros, all Hans Christian Anderson, all Aesop, etc)
-A more specific 'fairytale' theme with all characters from old popular children's novels, like Peter Pan or Alice in Wonderland
-A Shakespeare theme (with characters from various plays, maybe Shakespeare himself is the one who's killed?)
-Various holiday themes, like Santa being murdered on Christmas Eve or the mysterious death of a monster during the annual monster gathering of Halloween
-A Greek gods and goddesses theme
-Get really meta and have a 'murder at a murder mystery party' theme
-A female only theme, maybe a bachelorette party
-A superhero theme

Aaaaand that's all I have for now. You guys probably can't even make that many themes, but I got a little carried away and don't wanna delete any of them

Hello, thanks for leaving a review. I sent your suggestions to the team. We really enjoyed your ideas. If you ever have the urge to send more theme ideas email us at: contact@whodunnitapp.com



I read that there was a pdf version available for users who didn’t have an iOS device. I purchased a theme called Copper Creek Calamity to try it out. Apparently you have to pay $3 extra for each user who will be using the pdf version. Also they can’t participate in the voting or other features that iOS users get. The design is poor, we had five players but the game came with seven characters so there were plot holes, and no one could figure out how we were solving a murder mystery-this theme focused on us trying to figure out how to stop a potential bank robbery? Then when someone was murdered towards the end of the game, the murderer was instructed to confess right away. So there wasn’t much sleuthing to be done. Idk disappointed in paying $8 (including one pdf version) for a one time failed party game.
