5 – The Wolf Among Us (2013)
Fabletown, located in a modern day Manhattan, is a dazzling noir setting where all the childhood fantasies in our world live together. In this episodic mystery from Telltale Games you play the role of the big bad wolf, Detective Bigby. Your job is to protect the city. The choices you make will affect the lives of many of Fabletown’s residents, and you’re not the most popular character. This adventure pushes the limits of adventure and enters the territory of noir mysteries.
4 – Sherlock Holmes Chapter One (2021)
There wasn’t enough praise for Sherlock Holmes Chapter One. Sherlock Holmes Chapter One is arguably the best entry from the developers known for their work with the Sherlock Holmes IP. The best part of the game is that players can ultimately be wrong in their assumptions and complete the cases in their own way.

This visual novel style of storytelling fits well with the overall mystery. The player’s task is to investigate rooms every day, uncover lies and find the killer among his own classmates.

2 – Return of the Obra Dinn (2018)
Return of Obra Dinn is not your typical detective game. You play an insurance adjuster investigating the disappearance of crew and passengers from the eponymous merchant ship in Return of the Obra Dinn. Using your pocket watch, you must investigate each individual death, write clues in your journal, and finally piece together the tragedy that befell this mysterious ghost ship.
There’s a simplicity to this mystery that lies in the real detective work and hours it takes to tie up each loose end. Instead of uncovering a living murder or case, dive into a cold case and search the ship’s eerie interior for any evidence you can find.
1 – Your Story (2015)
Through this FMV adventure, you’ll unravel a mystery by searching through a fragmented archive of video clips – and the story will become clearer as you discover it. Its unique free-form structure, combined with the difficult task of assembling clips of police interviews, makes it an engaging narrative experiment. Putting the story together makes you feel like a detective. It doesn’t hold your hand, which makes it incredibly difficult to do if you’re not careful.
