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.

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!

As a guest in a Whodunnit murder mystery, your job is to get into character, follow your objectives, and have a good time! The host will take care of most of the details of moving the party along. You just focus on interacting with the guests and thinking about your character's background and motivations. Who knows, by the end of the night y​ou might turn out to be the murder. Or the victim of the crime!

Super Fun-Will Play Again

I loved this app! I found it on tiktok, and decided it would be awesome to host a virtual party due to COVID-19. We hosted a party with the Misty Isle theme. The app made hosting super easy and hassle free. I wish I had read the theme overview to my party during the introduction so they had better context and background information. They were all feeling a bit confused and I was confused as well because I did not know what each player knew and did not know. Everything went smoothly, but there was some confusion about when the victim was supposed to die and when the murderer was supposed to come forward. The only reason it did not get 5 stars was because the app did not calculate the votes correctly and the “winners” were not accurate based on the votes, so I had to have everyone text me their vote. I also would have liked to vote as a host, because I did not know who the murderer was until the conclusion, but I did not have a voting button. I will be downloading more packs, and I am eager to try to host an “in person” murder mystery! Thanks for making this awesome app.

Best zoom party ever!

I’ve actually never played a murder mystery before and wanted to bring one virtually for my team’s holiday party and after extensive research I landed on this app because it seemed so much more accessible and easy to use than these other $60-$70 mysteries. My coworkers and I had a blast! We played with all 21 characters on zoom. We played for just over an hour but you can easily play for 2-3 hours depending on how much time you have and want to devote to each round. The app is easy to follow and I loved the voting feature. Another reason I rated this game 5 startle was their live chat support, I needed help more than once and or had questions about how to play and they answered me within minutes! I would def buy another game and recommend this app. One thing that could be improved is the instructions both for host/guest as the host doesn’t see the same thing as the guest sees and if you never played a murder mystery before you aren’t exactly sure of how and when to go to the next round, etc. But otherwise a great app and so affordable!

What games make me want to see in the future?

You said to put in a review what seems really like to see in the future i’d like to see a thing with a vampires in the castle and werewolves and all that Gothic stuff that like that and like to see a steam with maybe Wellington and his men and berries and gardens in Tennessee charger such as that. That may be a theme when you’ve got mythical reachers like dragons and unicorns and Pegasus is because humans and other things in which people can really stretch the imagination and Minnie children’s hands and I didn’t abilities or just have fun pretending to be something that they never will be such as an unicorn. I have many more ideas what things like we want to see in the future?

Developer Response ,

Excellent ideas! I passed your ideas to our writers. Stay tuned! Thanks for playing.
