Basically cluedo style game but there is a time limit. You have to collect murder weapon and other items and gather people in room where murder took place. If you failed the murderer would kill you. It gave two warnings.
Also had trouble distinguishing between name similar to items. I needed to take a fern that was murder weapon. However I had named one of the characters Fran. When I typed take fern it would respond Fran thanks you for offer but refuses.
