A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

It was such a fun office Christmas party until the knife for the cake went missing... and everyone found it stuck in the back of your now-deceased boss, Vic Timm. Solve the mystery of who killed the victim in this narrative-driven whodunnit!

The game is currently a demo. Please expect a full game soon!
