Relentless Software’s self-published ‘Whodunnit’ puzzle/adventure game, Blue Toad Murder Files: The Mysteries of Little Riddle, previously released in episodic format exclusively for PS3 via PSN download, is now on tap for a PC release.

All six episodes are being bundled together and released globally on November 24th priced at £14.99 / $19.99 (the complete set on PS3 is currently £17.99 / $26.99), and you’ll be able to grab it directly from the Blue Toad Murder Files website or your favorite digital distribution outlet.

For PC gamers new to Blue Toad Murder Files (or PS3 gamers who didn’t bother to play it), it is a whimsical murder mystery game built around solving tricky logic puzzles and paying attention to every little detail in order to correctly finger the guilty party at the end of each episode and ultimately uncover the villain of the whole storyline. The game is thick with British humor and verbiage, which is hilarious and also a tad confusing at the same time, and voice actor Tom Dussek does a bang-up job voicing the game’s entire cast of charming, eclectic characters, highlighted by his performance as the narrator.

The game consists of six episodes, each one taking one to two hours to complete depending on how sharp you are with logic puzzles. There are more than 90 puzzles in all, and you can solve them all by your lonesome or have three other players join in and compete against one another to solve the mystery.

It really is a great game overall, and for my money it even tops Telltale’s episodic adventure romps in terms of humor and lighthearted appeal. Highly recommended!
