If the idea of a murder mystery appeals to you but you don't want to imagine your own graphics, Murder on the Zinderneuf has both. The game is set in 1936, only 2 years before The Witness, so much of the atmosphere is similar. But the crime does not take place on Earth. One of 16 passengers on the luxury dirigible Zinderneuf is murdered en route from London to New York, 5,000 feet over the Atlantic Ocean. The air ship is 12 hours away from New York, and it's up to you to gather enough evidence to wring a confession from the guilty party. Otherwise, he or she will go free, and the crime will remain unsolved. Although the 12 hours are simulated, the action of the game is played out in real time, and the Zinderneuf will reach New York in 35 minutes. So there is no dilly-dallying over clues as in The Witness. Murder on the Zinderneuf makes you think on your feet.
