Linux

We only officially support Ubuntu. If you have issues with another distro you can reach out to us via the link above and we might be able to guide you in the right direction.

HQ4X

We don’t support HQ4X as it breaks the visual style we worked hard to establish for the game, sorry.

Unlock Cases ‘Cheat’

If, for any reason, you need to unlock all the cases (progress lost, for example, or you want to relive one – but only one – moment in the game), there is a cheat for that!

To access it, you’ll want to load up the game and go into the main options menu. There, you’ll see a pi symbol (π) in the bottom right corner. Hover the mouse over this symbol (the tip of the arrow should be over the π – these images do not have correct arrow placement for clarity of symbol).

PC

On PC (Windows, Mac or Linux) you’ll want to press and hold Control and Shift, then press left click.

Console

On Console, you’ll want to hold down the trigger buttons and press the lowest of the circular input keys, as highlighted in purple, below:
(That’s X on Playstation, A on Xbox, B on Switch, etc).

If that works, you’ll briefly see the relevant unlock symbol and all cases will be available for you to play in whatever order you see fit.

Godspeed, detectives!
