Description Edit | History

The Painscreek Killings is a story-rich murder mystery game that quickly evolves from leisurely exploration of an abandoned town into a full-blown crime solving experience. Can you uncover the town's dark secrets and expose the hidden truth to the public?

As Janet, a young and upcoming journalist, you have been asked by your editor to investigate the mysterious abandonment of a once lively town. Based on the information released by the media about the deaths of the townspeople, you set foot into the town thinking you would find an interesting story to publish, only to uncover secrets that were meant to stay hidden forever.

The Painscreek Killings borrows mechanics from a walking simulator but goes beyond it by making the players think. It mimics real world investigations with detective-like puzzles that doesn’t hold your hand, allows you to explore wherever your investigation takes, and a captivating story waiting to be discovered. The game encourages you to explore the surroundings carefully, collect clues and hints to help your investigation, and find evidence to expose the truth about the killings. There are no quest markers or hint systems to aid in your journey. You will be forced to think, to connect the dots and to piece things together, making you feel like a real investigator.
