Victoria Clair and the Mystery Express

A murder has gripped the VIP section of a fancy train, and it's up to amateur sleuth Victoria and her omniscient feline friend Hercules to investigate. Meet the witnesses, hunt for clues, and gather alibis in a world where no-one will help you with anything until you solve a puzzle for them first!


Gather clues by solving interactive puzzles and brainteasers!


Unravel the events of the case by finding contradictions in witness testimonies!


...your cat Hercules some of those good, good fishy snacks and he'll give you hints!


I made this during quarantine to see if I could and for the experience of it all. Soundtrack by Nate Aune and voice acting by Riley Noland and my cat, Sparta. Typewriter and Shop Bell SFX are sourced from online with the CC0 license.  Uses Unity and Fungus. Everything else I made myself!

I really enjoyed this game, it had a lot of charm to it! The goofy puzzle-nerd characters were all a treat, and the key points to the mystery all worked pretty well.

Is there a sequel planned? I'd love to see Victoria tackle the chicago mystery teased at the end ...

Hello, thank you so much for checking out my game! It really means a lot to me. :)

I do in fact have a sequel planned, and I'm working on it now! It'll be a little while before it's ready, but if you're following me on itch, you'll know when I release it!


Wow! This was a joy to play. The mystery and riddles were puzzling, so it was very satisfying to figure them all out. I'm a big fan of Layton games so I'm immensely glad I found this!


Thank you so much! I'm so glad you liked it!! <3
