Does each one have a ghost?

Sorry Lady Kestrel, it’s not about ghosts!

You all guessed right that it’s about the contents of the games, however its not about a specific type of object or character.

Monkey Island 2: Le Chuck’s Revenge
Runaway 3: A Twist of Fate
Anna’s Quest
The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief
Thimbleweed Park
Broken Sword: the Angel of Death
The Secret of Monkey Island would not qualify.
Nancy Drew: Phantom of Venice Nick Bounty: the Goat in the Grey Fedora would, in a way very similar to Monkey Island 2.
The first episode alone of The Raven would not qualify.

There is a murder in each game?

Hmm. Waking up, then? I seem to remember someone being still unconscious and possibly dead at the end of part 1 of The Raven…

I’ll have a guess at characters being either drugged or poisoned?  Smile

Sorry chrissie, another nice guess but still not the common denominator Wink

Monkey Island 2: Le Chuck’s Revenge
Runaway 3: A Twist of Fate
Anna’s Quest
The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief
Thimbleweed Park
Broken Sword: the Angel of Death

Nancy Drew: Phantom of Venice and Nick Bounty: the Goat in the Grey Fedora would, in a way very similar to Monkey Island 2.

Heavy Rain qualifies.
The Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes: Case of the Rose Tattoo does not.
Deciding whether Life is Strange does would be a real conundrum.

I can see why you would think that, however the answer was…

Phlebas - 19 September 2017 06:09 PM

Yes! Playable flashback sequences, precisely (even though some sequences can almost take up the whole game… that’s the beauty of the narrative technique Wink).
Well done Phlebas, your turn again Smile

A tricky one Meh
I don’t think I would have guessed it, no matter how many games you had posted.

You’re right, I can’t beleive I didn’t think of including this one!

Sorry if it was a bit far-fetched, I guess it was like one of those dreaded reverse-engineered puzzles that only make sense when you know the solution. If I ever get to give another one I’ll try to make it less devious!
