Hello everyone,,
I’ve been digging the point n click detective adventure games and solving puzzles but i really need more games like this

I did play Gone home but uhhh the thing is you don’t have any people to talk to and you just find journeys and the game is short if you just go for the attic and there’s la noire too but that doesn’t count as point n click adventures…

If you like detective stories, you might like some of the Sherlock Holmes games from Frogwares.
Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened
Sherlock Holmes vs Arsene Lupin (aka Sherlock Nemesis)
Sherlock Holmes vs Jack the Ripper
Testament of Sherlock Holmes

The above all allow a 3rd person mode.
At least the first three allow point-and-click in the 3rd person mode.
The first person mode uses keyboard and mouse.
I don’t remember if Testament was 100% point-and-click. It might have used WASD keys for moving.

Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments is also good, though I don’t remember how point-and-click it was.
I thought the latest one, The Devil’s Daughter, was a disappointment and wouldn’t recommend it to a Nancy Drew fan.

Most of the above are currently 75% off at GOG so a good time to get them

Sherlock Holmes: Secret of the Silver Earring is also on sale.
One of Frogwares’ early games, it is 100% point-and-click.
I have to warn you there is a dog with X-ray vision in this game, and you have to sneak past him. It may take quite some time. Whenever I think of replaying this game, I remember the dog and play something else.

There were some Agatha Christie adventure games published by Dreamcatcher/Adventure Company a few years back, but I don’t know if they run on Windows 10.
Agatha Christie: And then there were None
Agatha Christie: Mystery on the Orient Express
Agatha Christie: Evil Under the Sun
These are 100% point-and-click.

Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders (2016 version)—I didn’t think it was as good as the earlier Agatha Christie adventure games (different developer too), but it is point-and-click and should work on Windows 10.

Another game is
The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief (now sold as The Raven Remastered)
also 100% point-and-click and the updated version should run on Windows 10.

The Broken Sword games are very popular on this forum.
The 3rd one in the series is not point-and-click and probably works better with a gamepad than with the keyboard.
The 4th one is sort of a weird combination of keyboard and mouse.
1. Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars (aka Circle of Blood)
2. Broken Sword: The Smoking Mirror
5. Broken Sword: The Serpent’s Curse

Then there is the Secret Files series
Secret Files: Tunguska
Secret Files 2: Puritas Cordis
Secret Files 3
Secret Files: Sam Peters
(very short compared to the other 3)

Maybe I’ll think of some more detective games later on.

Go for Rose Tattoo and Serrated Scalpel.

Yes. And I highly recommend Detective Di and the Silk Rose murders. Also Grim Fandango has a great film-noir plot.

Maybe Ace Attorney and Blackwell games?

Marcella Moon: Secrets on the Hill is based on books from the same author as the author of the Nancy drew book series. The game itself is also directly inspired by the Nancy Drew game series so could be what you’re looking for. The first game is out now on Steam and a second game is in development:


If you wanted another murder mystery with a historical angle you can also try Detective Di: The Silk Rose Murders which I would also highly recommend.
