DescriptionInvestigative researcher Lionel Ulmer is invited to the mansion of Lord Blackwin to help him with the manuscript of his book.

Murder in a Wheel is a freeware AGS game with art and design reminiscent of the classic LucasArts games. It is entirely controlled with the mouse and a typical SCUMM interface with commands, inventory and status bar. The different commands can be selected individually but the most logical ones are applied directly by clicking the mouse on an active hotspot. Lionel investigates the death and gathers clues to find the culprit. The entire game takes place inside the mansion.
The game was created as a semester work (Game Design, Interactive Storytelling) at the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK). It was based on LucasFan's MMM Starterpack and the MIDI music was borrowed from several existing games.
