Hunt a Killer
And congratulations on joining a community of tens of thousands of detectives across the globe. Hunt a Killer is an interactive experience that is completely unique - like being transported into a TV show with items you can touch and secrets to uncover. This experience is episodic. Think of each box as a new episode, building on the one before it and adding more to the story. You will conduct an investigation, establish means, motive, and opportunity, and search for connections as you work toward the gripping finale.
After each episode, you should be able to eliminate at least one suspect. To do this, you'll need to examine evidence from each episode and cross-reference from past ones to put the pieces together of what happened that night and why. Good luck!
