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.
