    LIGHTS. CAMERA. MURDER…? It’s not exactly what TV detective Honor Mizrahi signed up for, but with the suspiciously sudden death of her manager after her dismissal, the suspect spotlight is now resting firmly on her. Help Honor and her rad reconnaissance robot SCOUT clear her name by interrogating a cast of quirky characters, solving pixel puzzles and gathering clues across a range of glitzy venues. Only you and your gorgeous wardrobe of crop tops and crocs will get to the bottom of this bizarre mystery!

    Ed Fear (Hatoful Boyfriend, Swords of Ditto, Heavenstrike) invokes a wonderfully camp, 90’s charged world in Murder by Numbers’ ultimate “whodunnit” – bringing murder, intrigue and cargo pants together. Concocted with a cast of colourful characters designed by Hato Moa (Hatoful Boyfriend) and with a soundtrack composed by Masakazu Sugimori (Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Ghost Trick), Murder By Numbers will transport you back to 1996.
