'Scene Investigators' Is A Deductive Reasoning Game Coming To PC Later This Month - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Oct. 3, 2023 @ 6:00 a.m. PDT

Scene Investigators is a "true crime" deductive reasoning game where you step into re-created crime scenes, observe closely for pieces of evidence, analyze possible motives behind the crimes, and uncover what truly happened.

Players will be able to put on their detective hats and examine evidence at a variety of murder scenes to uncover the truth, offering 8.5 immersive crime scenes to explore at launch.

The game is tailored to fans of detective films, the true crime genre, escape room puzzles, and especially for those who love the challenge of solving cases. Players will step into re-created crime scenes, observe closely for pieces of evidence, hypothesize possible motives behind the crimes, and use deductive reasoning to uncover what truly happened.

Set in the near future, you play as a trainee in pursuit of becoming a licensed investigator. Presented with a set of reconstructed case files that border between challenging and perplexing, your goal is to solve them and pass the test. Your only tools are your keen perception, astute thinking and mental acuity. Can you solve them all?

Scene Investigators is a deductive reasoning game that leans heavily on keen observation, filling in the missing gaps, looking for motives when they aren't seemingly there, and coming up with several plausible assumptions to progress through the investigation.

 Interested fans can check out a playable Scene Investigators demo on Steam.

Key Features:

  • “True Crime” Detective Experience - Players must observe each scene carefully and analyze everything. They will take note of anything that stands out and write down suspicions as they navigate through the crime scenes. There are no hints or hand-holding, so they must use logic and intuition to solve each case.
  • Immersive Murder Mystery Puzzles - Piece everything together, not only to understand what happened but also the connection between the perpetrators and their victims. The only tools are keen perception, mental sharpness, and real-life wisdom.
  • 70/30 Principle: Hypothesis Testing - Players may find that some evidence is missing, limiting them from making the best conclusion. There might be 70% of the evidence in the case, but the other 30% is nowhere to be found. This is where they have to fill in the missing gaps, trust gut feelings, and make smart, calculated assumptions.
  • Uncover Narrative Through the Environment - Notice the pink lipstick on the wine glass? What about the trajectory of the bullet on the wall? How about the faint size-12 boot marks on the windowsill? These are part of the environmental clues that can help piece the story together.
  • Collaborate with Friends - While this is a singleplayer game, the deduction gameplay is great for streaming to fans or couch co-op gaming.
  • Localized in 10 Languages - Players all over the world can experience the mystery in English, German, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Brazilian Portuguese, French, and Spanish (Spain).

Scene Investigators will be available for PC (Steam) on October 24, 2023 at for $24.99 USD.
