Immersive and fun whodunnit!

First off, since others have commented about this I will just say that it should be pretty obvious this game is not free - it clearly displays “in app purchases,” and doesn’t charge outright because the developers are allowing you to trial the game by playing the first segment. This is not a free-to-play game model, and so of course they will need to charge money for the full game. Do you really think they can make great games like this absolutely free?

As for the game itself, this is a welcome addition to the “full-motion-video” genre (think similar to Her Story, At Dead Of Night, etc). While it’s a murder mystery, it’s also fun and a bit tongue in cheek at times (somewhat like Clue), and it has a fun and talented cast of eccentric characters where everyone has a motive. In this modern age of video-calls, it also works really well as a family digital “gathering” and feels very immersive.

I won’t say anything else about the story, but it’s a fun one, and the ending felt satisfying (and alternate endings were also entertaining). Expect to play it more than once, but the replay value is also high as you will uncover more secrets.

Overall a great game, and I hope we can expect more games like this in the future!

If your a whodunnit and/or Agatha Christie lover, you’ll love WPMOUM

Who Pressed Mute On Uncle Marcus or WPMOUM, if a choose your own adventure murder mystery made during pandemic. You play as Abby as she tries to figure out which one of her fellow family members poisoned her favorite uncle. The true ending is impressive, although I’m kinda bummed their was no post credits scene, that would’ve completed my day. After either choosing the right antidote and Marcus lives or choosing the wrong one and Marcus dies, you’ll have to use the evidence you gathered by your choices to find who’s innocent or guilty. My favorite character is Nan, who is very sweet and reminds me of my grandmother. So…Who Pressed Mute On Uncle Marcus? Was it Mum? Aunty June? Brandley? Toby? Lottie? Or is Marcus faking it?

If you don’t want to pay five dollars for the game don’t waste your time

So this game is slow but a little relaxing I like the format however they let you play like one round and then you have to pay for the rest of the game what a waste of resources in time. I think they should make that clear that it is a trial it is not a full game. Some of us are dealing with terminal illness and stuck in the hospital don’t have 499 I know I might not see much from you guys but being on a fixed income from Social Security I don’t get to treat myself to games and outings and what not. So gaming is pretty important to me. I think that the game is playable as long as you’re willing to pay. It’s very very slow to go through and when it tells you you’re done and you’re onto the next and then they want you to pay it’s actually infuriating. There are other games out there like this that aren’t paid to play. I guess I’m gonna go to a competitor.
