Scene of the Crime: Dream of Murder
A detective's best weapon is their finger. You can level it at someone in an accusatory fashion. You can use it to tip up the brim of your fedora whenever the situation calls for extra suaveness. And of course, most importantly, you'll use it to point-and-click your way through Pastel Games' latest murder mystery adventure, Scene of the Crime: Dream of Murder. When a body is found in the trunk of a car that crashed off the highway, you and your finger are called in to solve the case. Whodunnit and why? You'll need your eyes, your wits, and a magical board in your office that does all the hard work of tying evidence together for you to find out!
Play all of the Scene of the Crime games:
When your cursor changes to show you can interact with something, just click! Inventory items can be used by selecting them at the bottom of the screen, and then clicking wherever you want to implement them. Largely, you'll be using your keen detective instincts to find all the evidence in each area before you proceed, and your map will allow you to hop to new locations as they're unlocked. Dream of Murder's main flaw, however, finding all of those interactive zones is a chore and not as visually intuitive as it could be. It's also a shame that the game connects all the evidence for you, instead of doing it yourself. These flaws won't keep you from enjoying the game, however, and with gorgeous artwork and a more involved story than the previous games, it's a fine way to keep your keen detective mind sharp for the next case... especially considering there's a whole lot left unexplored at the end of this one.
