"The town's richest man was killed late last night in a shocking murder!" is the first thing most Ivorydennians hear when they turn on the TV this morning. For Clive Davis, it's the second or third thing, and that's followed by the biggest surprise he's ever gotten.

Clive Davis is the newest police officer on the Ivorydenn Police Force. He hopes that if he can prove himself as a police officer, he can eventually make his way to being a detective. That's been his plan for the past few years.

Then, in his first three minutes on the job, that plan gets thrown out the window when he's assigned to assist Detective Adams, the best detective in town, help solve a murder that has sent shockwaves through this sleepy town.

Follow Clive as he scrambles to put the pieces together and solve the murder mystery that his entire career is now hinging on, with the help of a detective who's a little rough around the edges.


RIDDLE ME THIS is a short (~30 minutes) visual novel that follows a rookie police officer as he interrogates sobbing girls, gets flirted with by news reporters, and struggles to solve a murder mystery on his first day on the job. 

This game was created for the No Sh*t Sherlock game jam.  I recommend reading everything EXTREMELY carefully to solve the mystery; I also recommend exploring every option. This game is free to play, but you may donate if you wish.

Cool game (with a great logo to match)!! I wasn't able to figure out who the killer was on my own (I only got it by entering the names of all of the named characters) but I've never been good at solving mysteries, haha. The answer was really clever!

I'd love to see more of these characters!


I’m really glad you enjoyed it! In retrospect, I wish I’d done a better job, but I guess it was alright considering I had a week to complete it. Thank you for the comment!
