Murder Train is a dynamic murder mystery game created during the Global Game Jam 2016. There's a murderer on the train! They are an autonomous agent, moving from car to car, killing a victim when you're not there to see it.

Luckily, witnesses will give you clues about the murderer's hat, shirt, pants, or gender. But don't get fooled by the murderer themselves, as they will continually give you false clues. The goal is to catch the murderer as soon as possible and prevent them from killing off all the passengers.
