Over its memorable twenty to thirty minute playtime, Murder takes players on a journey through a near-future Tokyo, following the actions of Lieutenant Motomeru Minori of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police on an unusual and dangerous case, in a story that explores the intersection of morality and sentience in a future where both have become commodities.

A point and click game where you will be clicking on "hotspot" areas to progress the story and optional spots to get more information or to talk to people. The game has poor voice acting, nothing particularly awful but much of it sounds like characters are just reading the script. The character models aren't the most detailed and movement can look strange, I have seen better pixel art but they are alright and the backgrounds and world looks good with some nice details in the few areas you go to. The idea behind the story has been done multiple times and has become a cyberpunk trope, and it has been done much better. How quickly the story ends makes the cliches aspects and characters even worse. There is only an idea for a story here, no themes are really explored, nothing is known about the characters, this would have been a short prologue in a normal game or movie, the plot that was given would be the game summary description on the back of the box of a normal product. Not worth it.
