Description

You find yourself, along with the upper echelon of society, on a river boat owned by an eccentric host. When the host is killed in plain view of the guests, it is up to you to solve the classic conundrum, "Whodunnit?"

In this cinematic adventure, you must interview the notorious, colorful characters of the Clue storyline including Professor Plus, Miss Scarlett, and Colonel Mustard, not to mention new faces such as a struggling amateur magician, an irritable artist, and a beautiful psychic & hypnotist. Solve a variety of puzzles, often with the help and advice of the other guests and their special skills. And hurry, because one of these people is a murderer.
