It just happened. Jacob Hayes is dead. He lies on the floor of his own apartment, the place is a mess. He only moved in a week ago.  What happened here?  

As a detective, you get to unlock the story of Jacob Hayes in an artistic pixelated style.  You walk the apartment halls, searching for clues while looking into the rooms of the residents - Mrs. Baker, the old lady who is late to pay rent, Jeremy Syndo, a professional gamer reliant on internet, William, the rich kid partier, Rachel Harris, a red belt in Taekwondo with dreams to teach it one day, and finally Klaus and Niko, twins who immigrated from Germany. 

It is your job to discover who killed Jacob Hayes. Use the clues, and when your ready, you choose who to place the blame on. 

Be careful who you choose…

I was kinda expecting cookies after solving the murder. I guess Mrs. Baker forgot... :)

Hey! I'm glad you like the video. I mentioned interactivity because it would have helped narrow down the guilty party. Also it would have been cool to be able to ask for cookies. :)
