Crimes & Capers: And The Winner Is… Dead Announced

Renegade Game Studios revealed the next edition in their mystery puzzle series Crimes & Capers with And The Winner Is… Dead. The company has released two games in this series so far, which challenge you to figure out what's going on as a team through deductive reasoning and puzzle-solving. The games even encourage you to get into character as you play like other murder mysteries. It's actually a clever set of games that they have been putting out and we're kinda surprised there aren't more or that this isn't more well-known. But now you have a new caper on your hands as you'll need to solve a mystery at a music award show.  The game is available for pre-order right now going for $35, and at the moment the projected release date for this will be February 23rd, 2022.
