About Murders on Budapest:
The game’s story is set in some mountains on the outskirts of the country. A boy named Doyle loses his way in the blizzard and finds a group of hikers. The main character who is one of the hikers offers him some food and shelter. It seems like a story with a happy ending, but when the hikers get ready to leave, one of them is found dead. With this discovery starts a game of whodunit. The player is to then make logical deductions in mini-games on the basis of the available clues. Additionally, the choices made by the player change the direction of the story and result in a lot of twists and turns as well!
Furthermore, the game pays homage to legendary mystery writers like Agatha Christie and Higashino Keigo. It also tries to incorporate elements of humor, to separate itself from the clichés of the mystery genre.
