    Whodunnit... or who will do it?! A new mystery simulation game with player-vs.-player action arrives on the crime scene!

    In a manor in the midst of a blizzard, a grisly murder is about to occur. But who will be the victim?

    Among the game's characters are one "villain", who carries out a murder, and one "target", the villain's future victim.

    The player on the Moriarty side must fulfill objectives to complete their crime, while the players on the Sherlock side must prevent it from happening. Over the course of a match, the villain and the target will slowly come to light.

    Will you join hands with Moriarty to outwit Sherlock and take down your target? Or will you team up with Sherlock to foil Moriarty's sinister schemes?

    Crimesight is a successful mix between Among Us, Clue/Cluedo and Hitman Go. Although there are two quite different kinds of gameplay depending on the faction you belong to, it manages to make them both equally interesting and I really can’t tell you if I had more fun playing with Sherlock or Moriarty. Once the initial very pleasant surprise is over, however, it becomes a victim of its own mechanics, not guaranteeing any variety. With more maps, more situations and more characters it could capture a very large community lasting for years. The content of next updates will therefore be – according to the spirit of the game – a matter of life or death.

    CrimeSight is a great social deduction game, and one that has surprised me quite a bit with just how high-quality it is. The sounds, the visuals, and the game design all mesh together into a thrilling social deduction game that you can play together with a couple of friends. It offers just the right mix of advantages and disadvantages between each of the three roles: Sherlock knows nothing but can move a lot, Moriarty knows everything but can’t do a lot, and Irene…well, she’s basically the assistant for Moriarty. If you were wanting a change of pace and wanted to play this with your friends, I can certainly recommend it for a game night.

    Crimesight is a sort of multi-player chess game. The presentation is nice, the soundtrack catchy, and the ideas behind the gameplay work. This is not a game of deduction, mind you, so much as it is a game of strategy. It is easy to approach but becoming a real detective will take several hours. Its main problem is that the contents are meager and in a few hours you've seen everything it has to offer. If you have a group of friends, however, it might be more interesting in the long run.

    Crimesight is that typical title destined to conquer (and entertain) that niche of fans capable of making a game survive for a long time. However, without content-packed post-launch support, the Konami-branded creature will definitely show the flank. We recommend playing it with a group of friends, an experience that will multiply the fun. All the others, on the other hand, will have tools for non-verbal communication ... which are not always used in the right way by users.

    Crimesight is an interesting Mystery Simulation game where you can’t trust anyone. Its formula is very promising, but a post-launch support could improve its game modes more.

    CRIMESIGHT formula is improvable and yet compelling: taking a little something from both Among Us and Clue, the game feels original and the online approach to investigation is pretty unique. Nevertheless, the UI is messy and the game isn't smart enough to avoid you feeling its repetitiveness.

    This game has a lot of potential, it has everything it needs to start a new twist of the Among Us and Clue game type of mix.
    The turn based gameplay refreshes the genre a lot, and making it a social deduction game with an good atmosphere, soundtrack, memorable characters and animation style, it's the perfect recipe for success, the publisher just needs to promote it better.

    You can play like a warewolf-like board game.
    You can get the feeling that you can reason about mystery novels many times.
    Good sense of art and music.
    The downside is that it's not known because it hasn't been promoted.

    At first it looks like anime Among Us, but them you realize it's more like anime chess with a little bit of Among Us.

    Decent graphics No
    At first it looks like anime Among Us, but them you realize it's more like anime chess with a little bit of Among Us.

    Decent graphics
    No performance issues so far(+100fps on budget card)
    Nice soundtrack(DLC is totally worth it)

    quick note: there is no "vs CPU" mode, but tutorial cases 6 and 7 pretty much let's you play against Moriarty and Sherlock respectively.

    EDIT:
    To find a room or players to join your room may take a while.

    EDIT:
    90% positive reviews at the store were this game is actually avaliable.
