What to expect from a virtual murder mystery

CSI meets Cluedo in this classic ‘whodunit’, requiring players to work together to unlock and examine key evidence such as witness statements and suspect interviews, using augmented reality to reveal hidden information along the way. As you explore the crime scene via an interactive map, you’ll complete tasks and challenges which will help you acquire evidence and assist with your investigation.

Hosted via video conference and one of our virtual event managers, points will be awarded for successfully completing observational and trivia questions, as well as fun photo and video tasks, all whilst identifying the weapon, murderer and motive.
