Welcome to the Retroist Murder She Wrote Podcast. Alright, we are back. After an all too lengthy break, we finally have a new episode of The Retroist Podcast. This is one all of you have been clamoring for, Murder, She Wrote. You haven’t? Okay, perhaps not a true clamor. But this show is wonderful. I am a huge fan and I am very happy to finally get around to covering it.
On the show I talk about how the show got started, some of the folks involved, its spinoff and where you can find Murder, She Wrote outside of your TV set. metagirl joins the show again for a new top 5 list and music on the show was provided by Peachy. In this episode, we also have some very special music by Nick Everett who goes by nigidivitch. You can check out this work at his soundcloud page or listen to the song directly at his Youtube channel.

When Murder, She Wrote the Video Game came out last year, I counted myself one of the people who was actually excited about the release. Sadly the gameplay itself was lackluster. Filled with easy mini-puzzles, the game was more interesting for the theming, which let us rejoin Jessica Fletcher after years of no TV show. I did not think that the game had sold very well, but apparently the people at Legacy Interactive are not giving up on this title. Because they just announced that in early 2012, the sequel will hit store shelves. What can we expect this time around?
Master over 80 puzzles with familiar characters from the show, including Jessica Fletcher, Seth Hazlitt and Sheriff Mort Metzger. Featuring 3 original cases and over 6 hours of gameplay, Murder, She Wrote 2 provides captivating storylines and puzzling challenges that are sure to please both long time fans of the show and casual gamers alike.
A casual gameplay experience to be sure, but I won’t dismiss it out of hand. If those puzzles are challenging and the artwork and other media is decent, I will be one of those people helping to increase the odds of a part 3.
Peachy has been busy using whatever 8-bit music machine he uses. Today he shared with me a wonderful 8-bit version of the theme to the classic TV mystery, Murder She Wrote. I know their are a lot of Jessica Fletcher fans out there, so enjoy.
