Who comes up with this stuff? I can't believe someone sat there and thought, "You know what? 2009 is the right time to announce a Murder, She Wrote game." Regardless, somebody has and now we have to deal with it, along with the first five screenshots for Legacy Interactive's solve 'em up.

From the looks of things, it'll be a simple case of examining crime scenes to find out who did those wacky murders. Such thrilling environments as "a garage" and "a room" and "another room" have already been confirmed, and this is sure to be a game for the ages. Halo can go f*ck itself now that Jessica Fletcher's on the scene.

Seriously ... this is a thing that is happening.

Start your investigation of the mysteries to come by reading the excerpt below from Jessica Fletcher’s journal which comes from the first case in the game that is slated to ship in Q3, 2009 for the PC. Then inspect the screenshots. Are they gorgeous 3D renderings or are they possibly crime scenes? You decide.

Murder by the Garden Gate:
Today is the Summer Garden Festival’s garden competition and tour, an event I look forward to all year. My tour group arrived at Matthew O’Neill’s house at approximately 12:45 p.m., only to discover Matthew lying dead in his garden. What a shock! He held a peach-colored rose in his hand, and his broken watch had stopped at 11:30. Mort arrived, and together we surveyed the area. Matthew was wearing loafers, but I observed a muddy footprint that appeared to have been made by a work boot. (Whose?) There were cat toys scattered about the garden, along with the pieces of a torn-up bill from “Jack of All Trades” landscaping. I also took note of a second place garden competition ribbon, a bottle of pesticide, a coffee mug, and a pair of garden shears with the initials “E.W.” etched in the handle. I have a hunch that the shears belong to Matthew’s next-door neighbor, Emily Wiseborough. Perhaps she saw or heard something?
