Due to current circumstances we have started up our unique crime solving package again – but this time with a twist. At a fraction of the price, you can play through this fascinating mystery at home, trading evidence and files with Private Detective John Blake; only now he’ll email you the details, so you can crack on with solving the case rather than having to wait for the post to arrive. An ideal distraction for anyone stuck at home in these difficult times!

How the game works: Now played out almost entirely via email (some elements will still arrive in the post toward the end of the game), The Rising Water is a narrative crime solving game full of Red House Mysteries’ signature blend of puzzles and noir storytelling. Players will strike up an email exchange with Detective John Blake, who will supply them with police files and crucial evidence for them to do further online research into, uncovering the dramatic truth behind the unsolved case piece by piece. Throughout the game Blake is on hand to help move things forward and give advice when players get stuck, but the game is played out at whatever pace you choose.

“Superb, something completely different and very engaging… it made me anxious to come home and see if I had received any more information each day”
