A Multimedia Murder Mystery
Can you solve this case?
You are under tremendous strain, but you have all of the resources of the police department at your disposal. There's Lucie Fairwell, your assistant, who has filed the crime report, interviewed the suspects, and verified their alibis. You have complete access to the crime scene, with the ability to view any piece of evidence in close-up detail. You also have the forensics lab on call, and have access to the victim's desk, including her phone log, her calendar and her investment records. Lucie has also found you an expert on the voodoo religion and a lexicon of voodoo symbols. You'll need it all, because the press is demanding to see you, and will not give up until you hold your press conference.
Will you solve the case in time?Will you have the answers the press is demanding? Will you find the killer? Only time will tell. And if you do... there are still two other avenues you can explore, just to keep the game interesting.

CD-ROM World, April 1994
"This multimedia CD-ROM combines more than 100 minutes of full-motion color video, sound, and animation to present a murder case that players attempt to solve in the shortest time possible. What's more, the game offers several different possible outcomes, each with a different killer."
"This time, computer-game detectives encounter the murder of a young woman in her apartment. Smeared chicken blood, a dead chicken, strange symbols, and other trappings of voodoo clutter the crime scene. You've got six hours to solve the case."
"The Magic Death does well at illustrating the tools and complexities of murder investigation. It uses sound and video to help you play. But you'll need your own smarts and sleuthing instincts. If you are particularly good solving murder mysteries, there are two other versions of the game waiting for a solution."
