Mystery Games

Magnify Your Inner Sherlock

It was 4 am and the clock was ticking loudly, when a crash came from the kitchen… What comes next? That is the power of mystery. While mystery stories as we know them now didn’t really make it into the literary lexicon until the mid-19th century with American macabre master Edgar Allan Poe, the style of creating tension has had us shivering around campfires for ages. A little bit of safe tension goes a long way. If you want to pull back the curtains to see what is behind them, mystery games are the path to find your inner sleuth.

Slink after the clues in an absolutely dark and terrifying object-finding game with Evil Asylum. What sort of perils await? A classsic whodunit is the pinnacle of murder-mystery games. Turn the key and walk into Apartment 13 to see which of the three suspects left a lifeless victim. Try your hand at a CSI-style forensic investigation and try not to let any of the evidence go undiscovered. And what goes bump in the night? Battle with the dark creatures of the mysterious forest and defend your treasure chest with Goblin Treasure Hunt.

Some of the most popular thriller series haven’t been concocted for adults, but for children, like Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, and Encyclopedia Brown. Mystery games for kids are a stimulating pastime for readers of all ages. Click the Bolt is an outerspace odessy where kids need to help a lost little alien get home by piecing together an exciting puzzle game.

What if the dark corners of the unknown are in the kitchen instead? Well, it may not be tummy turning (hopefully), but you will need to figure out how to piece it all together with Lasagna: Sara's Cooking Class and Penguin Dinner.

So shake, riddle, and roll with these online mystery games that will certainly not rune your day!
