Description

Women's Murder Club is a hidden object game that borrows some elements from the adventure genre. The game follows a group of forensic investigators trying to uncover the mystery behind a series of murders.

Besides the standard seek-and-find mechanics, where the objective is to find all the objects listed on a notebook placed on the left side of a cluttered screen, the game also has an inventory and several mini-games. Some of the objects collected are stored in the inventory, to be used on specific situations to solve puzzles.

There's a list of objectives right under the list of objects. They are the normal procedures of criminal investigation, like collecting evidence and interrogating suspects, and must be performed to complete each crime investigation. The crime scenes have the body of the victim, and parts of it can be clicked for closer examination.

Most mini-games or puzzles are unique to their locations. There is no time limit or penalty for clicking on wrong objects, and each stage starts with 5 hints.
