Murder (from 1996)

I was going through an old Amiga pirate dealer list from April 1996. He was offering various games at that time and the list end like this:

Quote:
"I have a special offer for you. I mean the new digitalised adventure in the style of successful CD-ROM games like Police Quest VI and E-Swat. The game Murder is packed to 35MB. Unpacked it takes 52MB of harddisk space. I can send it to you packed on 38 floppies, or you can bring your own harddisk..."
I did a small search and found nothing, but I have a suspicion it could be this game: [ Show youtube player ]

Does anybody know it was released for Amiga?

I think i found it

You must download it from aminet / game / demo

It's divided into several lha, all together they are 34 MB, so it should be the game you are looking for

Anyway, it's only a demo

No, it's not "Murder She Wrote".

Here's some screenshots:

I love the title screen. Looks about as well as when I do a DPaint doodle in a few minutes. And I can't draw to save my life
