Speed Interrogating

by Jezzamon - Jam Entry

There's a murderer on the lose, but <insert your favourite TV show> in on is 50 seconds! That leaves you 10 seconds to interrogate each suspect, and 10 seconds to decide who's guilty!

Question your suspects about each other, and they'll give you a fact about them (what clothes they are wearing, or what their background colour is). Murderers are inherently dishonest, so they can't help lying! Try to figure out whose story doesn't add up before the ads are up!

1-9: Question / accuse
Space: Move to next person / restart game (at end)
M: Mute sounds
Right Click: Adjust difficulty

I failed horribly. I love the idea though.

Great concept, and a beautifully clean graphical style.

I was pretty terrible at the game but I liked the idea, vibe, art and music. Perhaps 1-9 is too much and if you limited the options to 1-4 or something it would play easier?

Too much information to keep in the head all time.

Great idea, though, wish interface was more convenient.

Nice idea! The change-up feels good. Also the music is great!

Nice concept and great art. The controls are not that intuitive, though

Great game and nice graphics, I failed miserably every time though.

I had to play it a few times to tell whether I was winning or not (if you haven't lost, the win screen is a bit confusing). This was crazy fun, and I loved everything about it

I absolutely love the concept. Please develop this more! In practice, I found it really really confusing, but with a bit of work I think it would be a really great game.

You did a fantastic job of making a murder mystery without words! I wish some of the colours would have been more different from each other, especially the background colours and the shirts. Juggling dark green and light green, or pale pink and pale purple was a bit of work.
But you did a great job with this!

Nice Entry! Graphics are simple but efficient. Getting the right suspect is not always easy. I first did not quite get the commands and needed some runs to get an idea of what to do.

Great entry! nice concept

Interesting idea and nice music. I was pretty bad at playing it though. :D

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
