Choose and Clues is a mystery story in which you choose your own path to gather information that helps you to solve who, how, and why. You learn characteristics of people, motives, and weapons as you navigate the story and match new information to clues.
You are a miniature intelligent Bot, and you ride from one person to another observing, listening, and learning. As opportunities arise you can jump to other humans.
Should you stay where you are, or jump to another character? Cold, hard logic may dictate these decisions, or it may be simple curiosity about a different character. The path you choose may lead to information needed to solve the mystery.
In the first story, Walter Smethers has been found dead in his office, and you must discover who did it, how, and why, and report your findings by the end of the work day.
As you eliminate suspects from consideration, track your findings in the Notebook until you have found the solution.
When you think you have solved the mystery, submit your findings via the Comm Portal.
With seven suspects, seven possible motives, and seven possible methods, the number of potential solutions is infinite, or thereabouts. We look forward to providing more stories, and thank you for trying Choose and Clues. May the mystery prove challenging!
