Blue Toad Murder Files is set in the quintessentially English village of Little Riddle where murder is in the air. As one of the famous Blue Toad detectives you solve puzzles, interrogate suspects, use your powers of observation and investigate clues to uncover the strange goings on in this quaint and sleepy village.

Blue Toad Murder Files: The Mysteries of Little Riddle is a one to four player co-operative episodic download game published by Relentless Software, creators of Buzz!, exclusively for PS3.

David Amor, Executive Director at Relentless, commented: “People have been asking me for months, what Blue Toad Murder Files is really about, how many episodes we’re making, when the episodes will be available... Our website will give players the answers to these questions and many more. This is the first games we’ve self-published and we’re really excited to be able to talk to our customers about it direct.”

Blue Toad Murder Files is set in the quintessentially English village of Little Riddle where murder is in the air. As one of the famous Blue Toad detectives you solve puzzles, interrogate suspects, use your powers of observation and investigate clues to uncover the strange goings on in this quaint and sleepy village.

You and your fellow detectives are taking a welcome break in Little Riddle following a particularly gruelling investigation. Whilst exploring the village - someone is shot right in front of you! Dum-dum-daaaaaaa! A suitable case for the Blue Toad detectives, so a new murder file is opened and you decide to stay in the village to solve the crime, much to the annoyance of the village’s Chief Inspector.

The main aim of the game is to follow clues to find the murderer. Along the way you’ll also encounter a variety of different and challenging puzzles which help you move through the peaceful world of Little Riddle.


As one of the detectives you move around the village by selecting locations on the map. Choose your venue wisely - will you meet the Doctor and hear his flimsy alibi? Or unearth the Station Masters motivation? Each stop provides an opportunity to meet a different villager and question them on the minor misdemeanours taking place in Little Riddle.

With each step of the investigation a puzzle is played to help a villager or get further clues about the case. But pay attention, you will also be questioned by the Chief Inspector about events that take place after each chilling incident.

Whodunnit? At the end of each episode you will be asked to choose your suspect before they are revealed and exposed in all their criminal capacities!
