How does the murder investigation work?

Realistic police case file for an online murder mystery game

Solving a murder case

During a murder case, you or your team will solve a realistic cold case. You get access to the online case file and the database. In addition to the online environment, you can also order the paper case file by post. You cannot order the paper case file alone. You always need the online database for looking up camera footage, suspects, and license plates.

Participants in the murder investigation

A murder mystery game is suitable for solving alone or with a team and can be ordered for groups up to 100 people. You order the murder mystery game for the number of people participating in the investigation. After placing the order, you will receive a link that allows participants to create their own login details to access the police case file and database. Even if you work in teams or with fewer computers, we recommend ordering for the number of participants. This way, a participant can quickly look something up on a mobile device, and no one has to wait for each other.

Independently or in teams

Since each participant has access to the same case file, you can decide whether each participant works independently on the murder investigation, the whole group works together, or you divide the group into teams. This way, you can also add a competitive element. Which team can unmask the perpetrator first?

Requirements for the murder case

A computer, laptop, or iPad with internet connection, preferably one device per participant. You can also use a mobile phone to look up information in the database. To view the interrogations, camera footage, and read the online case file, we recommend using a device with a larger screen.

Duration of the murder investigation

The duration of a murder investigation depends partly on the number of participants and whether the participants consult with each other. When you work on a murder case with 12 people and divide the material, you will discover the perpetrator faster than when you are with 2 people. More information about the duration is indicated for each murder case.

Contents of the murder case file

The online case file contains all the information you need for the investigation. The case file includes interrogations with witnesses and suspects, evidence, official reports, a map, autopsy report, and photos. In the database, you can search for people, license plates, camera footage, and evidence. When you come across the name of a company, you can check the company's website for more information.

Ordering a murder case

You can order a murder case by purchasing an online case file or a Paper case file. Or you can choose a murder case for groups (5 - 100 people possible). After filling out the order form and completing the payment, you will have immediate access to the online police case file and the database.

If you choose a case file for groups, the order form will ask if you also want to receive the paper case file by post. If you select YES, a new field will appear. Enter a number to indicate how many files you wish to receive. The price of the paper case file will be automatically included in the total price.


A murder investigation can take place 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. You decide when to start the investigation and whether to solve the murder case in one evening or spread it over several days. You have 3 months of access to the case file and the database, or until you have completed the case. Did you not have time to complete the murder investigation?
