Murder mystery games – the Freeform Games way

A Heroic Death – the HOST program

Have you got what it takes to solve the murder, achieve your goals and keep your guilty secrets hidden from everyone else?

It's up to you!

NEW RELEASE! – We've just released our fabulous new murder mystery game, Death on the Rocks. It's set in the English village of Little Bleakly in the 1940s, and it's a sinister and eccentric peek beneath the veil of rural tranquillity!

FREE GAME! – We're now offering a completely free-of-charge murder mystery party game! Just sign up to our newsletter here, and you can download a copy and give it a try!

Just downloaded Lei'd to Rest – first time I have downloaded one of your games. We intend to play the game in May – but I just wanted to say how good the game looks – and so easy to download. Dave Measey, Leicester, UK

Our downloadable murder mystery games put you in the middle of the action. We don't give you a predetermined script to read out, we don't drip feed your background to you – we don't even know how the game will end.

That's up to you.

But we do give you your detailed character background in advance. We give you goals and contacts – and secrets. You might have a secret identity, you might be rich, you might be poor – you might even be the murderer (we'll tell you up front if you are). We even give you ways of finding out other players' secrets – just so you can blackmail them.

You will decide who to talk to, who to trust – and who to betray.

You may know who your friends are. Or you may only think you know who your friends are. You won't know until the chips are down.

"Thanks again for all of your help. We appreciate the excellent customer service you have given us – it is what makes all the difference!" Janis Kutterer, USA

Our murder mystery games

Can I just say I've run about 4 of your games and they have all been exceptional. As someone who was used to those sit down dinner ones where you read from the books with no freedom, it's truly been a far richer experience and certainly more fun. I'm sure you get it all the time but thank you for providing such awesome games!"
