Is there anything better than digging into a new true crime documentary? Whether it’s binge-watching Making A Murderer on Netflix or making sure every episode of Dateline and 20/20 is on your DVR so you never miss their reporting on a case, there’s just something so fascinating about grisly murders, many of which are often left unsolved. If you can relate, you’re going to love Unsolved Case Files.
- With this game, you get to be the detective. Chances are, you watch true crime docs with your own theories in mind as to who committed the crime, what their motivations were, etc. Unsolved Case Files is a game in which these skills (or at least these tendencies) come in handy.
- So how does it work? You basically have to solve a decades-old unsolved murder with only the original investigator’s case file to work from. You need to find out who killed Harmony Ashcroft on May 8, 1998, but doing so won’t be easy. You’ll need to find three separate clues before you can even think of solving the case, so get working.
- What do you mean by “clues”? According to the game description for Unsolved Case Files, “First prove why the convicted man must be innocent. Then disprove a key suspect’s alibi and finally identify the clue that will put the real killer behind bars for the murder.”
- Thankfully, you’ll have the internet to help. Unsolved Case Files has an online element in that you’ll have to visit an answer key and enter your guess. If you’re wrong, you won’t be spoiled, but you also won’t get any further in the case until you get that clue right.
- The game comes with over 50 investigation photos and documents. These should be enough, when combined with your own crime-solving expertise of course, to find out who killed Harmony. You’ll need to review everything carefully and look for things that aren’t immediately obvious to get the right answer, though.
