Sleuth is an interactive murder mystery, based on the 1983 DOS game by Eric N. Miller of Norland Software. As a game of Sleuth begins, a murder has just been committed. It is your job to explore the house, to question the houseguests for their alibis, and to locate both the murder weapon and the scene of the murder. The challenge of Sleuth is to solve the crime, gather all of the suspects together, and accuse the guilty party before the killer becomes suspicious of your investigation and eliminates you from the game. Each game of Sleuth is different from the last, so you must always explore the house fully before you can solve the murder. Also, to make things more interesting, you can choose a `Personalized' option which allows you to populate the house with your friends and acquaintances.
