A good old English murder with Blue Toad Murder Files photo
A good old English murder with Blue Toad Murder Files
by Ben Perlee

There is something to be said about a good old murder mystery. I'm not just talking about those dark and miserable murder stories that can be seen on television any day. Rather, I'm talking about those light stories your grandma used to read. Agatha Christie's Miss Marple, for example, will go down in history as a fantastic detective, just a quirky old English woman. 

As a matter of fact, there really isn't any videogames based upon this style of story, the “ye old English country village with dasterdly murders afoot”. That, I suppose, is where Blue Toad Murder Files comes in. A six-part episodic murder mystery game coming to PSN from the team behind the Buzz line of games, wrapped up in a delightful bumbling English village of Little Riddle and bristling with English stereotypes (you better know your “plaster” from “bandage”), Blue Toad Murder Files looks like there could be a lot of fun here. 

Follow the jump for my hands-on through the first episode.
