Story premise: The story begins with Amy Rose’s birthday. To celebrate, she invited her friends to a murder mystery party on the Mirage Express. When Sonic the Hedgehog falls victim to the game, the party guests try to solve the mystery together. But is that all? Maybe there is more to it than a harmless game?!

Gameplay: You conduct dialogues, solve puzzles, jump through typical Sonic minigames and click through hand-painted backgrounds with simple, but lovingly animated characters from the Sonic universe.

The Murder of Sonic the Hedgehog is free to download on Steam.
