About the Story

Your wealthy uncle has just died of a heart attack. You're his only living relative. What's strange is that your family has never had any history of heart problems and he was fit and healthy up until his death. Time to investigate and see if you can find any clues to his untimely death. This is a good old-fashioned adventure - puzzles to solve, keys to find, the usual. Hopefully it's large enough to keep you occupied for a good while! :)

More like an escape room than a mystery to be solved, March 11, 2023

Having the maps were very, very helpful. Didn't think I could finish it without the maps nor walkthrough. But with these aids, I felt the game was well-planned, and the gameplay logical and sequential, somewhat like a slightly more complex escape room. I took about four hours to complete.

Would have been great if the "Save" feature could work (as there were a few times it got really laggy and I was almost at the end of the game). The buttons on the right panel of the page made the interactive fiction a lot less frustrating (Spoiler - click to show)- I couldn't "climb" things by typing it the usual way, but the "Look at" button allowed me to do this.

The game is heavier on the navigating and unlocking of doors and lighter on discovering what happened to the victim (the latter occurred really sporadically). Highly recommended if you enjoy escape rooms, but for those looking to solve a mystery, you might be disappointed. However I'm giving 5 stars for an intricately designed game that went pretty well without bugs, glitches, or textual errors.

Games with maps... by Xionix
I started playing Counterfeit Monkey, and I notice a good map is a way for us newbies to get into the game more easy. And I hate to draw so, are any other games that got a in-game map? It can be any genre.
