As Grandmaster Oogway once said: ‘Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That’s why we call it the present.’ But what if you also wanted today to be a mystery? Well, then we’ve got some suggestions for you! Here is our selection of mystery games.
Detectives and ghosts are like peanut butter and jelly. And in this game, you’ll play as either a detective OR a ghost. The beauty in it is that you have to find out who killed said ghost by using a series of charming mini-games like making the ghost whisper or use pieces of wire to create the outline of an object or use tarot cards. These mini-games give a brand new flavor to the old mystery, and for that reason, it is one of our favorites!
