Play OverviewPlay Overview

Duck Detective: The Secret Salami (2024) is a crime adventure where you play a down-on-his-luck detective duck. Play involves exploring the crime scene to find clues and then using them to fill in the blanks to solve the crime. It stands out for the sentence-building deduction requiring lateral thinking and observation.

You play as recently divorced private investigator Eugene McQuacklin. You inspect the evidence and interview suspects to discover their secrets. This builds up a list of information that can be slotted into statements about what happened to solve the mystery.

The result is a game that feels like an Agatha Christie novel but without the usual daunting complexity. The plug-and-play solutions make it approachable for anyone. Without taking itself too seriously, it's a storytime mystery complete with pompous detective, mismatched characters, and cramped environments.
