The Investigator is an Alligator who Investigates crime, alongside various faithful sidekicks. With Bobbycat, they investigate various gruesome murders, interrogate suspects, and collect clues, until the time comes to accuse the murderer. The games are basically a very long excuse for me to come up with a bunch of rhyming animal names as well as the most heartfelt groan-inducing puns I can think of.

In Investigator and the Chekhov's Gun, Investigator and his sidekick The Bad Luck Duck dig deeper into what appears to be the suicide of The Bipolar Bear.


The Investigator Cases are an ongoing series of point-and-click who-dunnits, inspired by games such as Professor Layton and authors such as Agatha Christie. I produce a new super short game every Ludum Dare (i.e., every 3 months).
