We all enjoy the "whodunnit" style murder mystery with all the suspense leading up to the final reveal. Running down a list of the actions and motives of some shady characters.
And we all feel the same thing – “If I was there, I'd know who it was”
But would you?
"The Sanguine Writing House" is a producer of original themes and plots with characters created for the specific game. The games typically have 12 characters and each character has unique characteristics and a mysterious persona.
We have taken each theme, researched and written it to be so much more than the Murder Mysteries that came before – you know the ones - packaged generically in a cardboard box, where the sad truth was that the one or two characters who spoke the most were not only the only ones to have any development but, 9 out of 10 times, were the murderer as well.
Gone are the paper-thin 2D characters with puns in their names, instead each character is brought fully to life as a living breathing suspect in a murder investigation that’s unfolding before your very eyes. They have morals, and egos, and not all of them are happy to be there.
We have written these mysteries to be as inclusive as possible, with every character being entirely gender neutral, allowing the players to put whatever ideas they have forward into these characters.
Non Murder Mysteries
"The Sanguine Writing House" also produces mysteries that have a different objective. These can be just as mysterious but no-one is looking for a body, it may be a missing valuable item, a trail of breadcrumbs leading to a interesting discovery, a children's mystery aimed at creating logical decision making, or a pantomime.
Whatever genre, the aim is exactly the same. A fun filled interesting evening of brain stimulating investigations.
The concept of the traditional meet ups are usually seen as a drunken social affair, but in this world we find ourselves currently in, how about we offer an enjoyable and entertaining alternative? With our “virtual tables”, we can allow groups to log in, get fully into character and enjoy a night where all that matters, for a few hours at least, is group of friends and colleagues coming together to see who amongst them can spot the hints along the way.
Our games are all about the intrigue of the theme, the depth of our characters and the enjoyment of our players
