LOS ANGELES, CA - November 12, 2009– The most beloved murder series is back in an all-new interactive video game. Leading casual games developer and publisher Legacy Interactive® announced today that a new game in its Hollywood Hits™ series, Murder, She Wrote is available on Legacy Games for PC download at http://www.legacygames.com.
Murder, She Wrote transforms the PC into an interactive seek and find“who-dun-it” mystery adventure with unique minigames in every scene. Play as the lovable murder novelist Jessica Fletcher and solve each of the five cases by carefully and methodically investigating murders using an innovative new style of hidden object and light adventure gameplay. First, players need to find missing keys from Jessica’s typewriter to fill in the unknown letters in the list of hidden objects. After the entire words are revealed, there are more secrets to uncover as not all the hidden objects can be found by just discovering where they lay. As every detective knows, nothing is ever as it seems!
Scour over 80 game levels with familiar characters from the show - Jessica Fletcher, Seth Hazlitt and Sheriff Mort Metzger. Set in the beautiful New England town of Cabot Cove and across the seas in London, the more than 25 detailed 3-D settings may distract even the most determined player from their investigation. Featuring 5 original cases and over 6 hours of gameplay, Murder, She Wrote provides entertaining twists and turns that are sure to please both long time fans of the show and casual gamers alike.
Legacy is giving away five free games at an unknown time today, Thursday 12th. Just follow the twitter account @Legacy_Gamesfor your chance to win.
