Games like Murdered: Soul Suspect
Games like Murdered: Soul Suspect are relatively rare and unique in the modern gaming landscape. In this game, you play as a detective in the storied town of Salem, a town that has a history steeped in magic and the occult.

One day, you are fast on the trail of a mysterious serial killer who has been ravaging the town of Salem, and it seems like this might just be the day you have been waiting for. However, just when you storm a room to apprehend the killer, he gets the jump on you, pushing you out of an upper story window to your death on the street below.

However, our brutish detective is not fated to find peace in death. Moments after he dies, he regains conciseness not in his own body, but as an ethereal spirit. After fruitlessly attempting to cram himself back into this failing body, he then embarks on a quest to save more lives and find closure in his death by exposing his killer and bringing him to justice.

Along the way, you will have to work with mediums, solve mysterious so that other spirits may have closure and find rest, possess priests, and run from soul-hungry demons.

If you are a fan of solving unique puzzles and concluding bizarre mysteries, that atmosphere that Murdered: Soul Suspect gives is second to none. It’s third-person exploration, clue-examining mechanics and interactive environments ensure that you feel the full gravity of solving the mysteries presented to you. Once you have unravelled that, here are a few more games that will challenge you and your mystery-solving skills.
