Murder in Venice box cover

Murder in Venice screenshot
In this little-known murder mystery game, you play a sleuth who must solve a high-profile murder in Venice. While the plot is nothing original, there are many revolutionary elements in gameplay. For instance, you can use your camera to photograph suspicious characters and events so you can show them to other characters to elicit clues. The game is also played in real-time, so timing and patience are key to finishing the game: you must wait for important events or characters to show up, as well as time your approaches. This novel, "realistic" spy technique is later implemented to greater effect in Cryo's KGB. Overall, a fun underrated sleuth game with a lot of innovative features that's well worth a look.
