Detective Awesomepants, son of Captain Awesomepants, is tasked with solving murders all over the globe. Which sumo wrestler crushed a man? Which Russian climber strangled a man? Detective Awesomepants has 10 seconds to examine the scene of each crime before determining who committed the murder.
Matt Vroman's Ludum Dare entry, made by one person in under 48 hours, is short but satisfying. The game provides light humor in gorgeous environments and relies on the player's powers of observation and logic to make the experience engaging.
Even if you don't want to play the game, I recommend you pull it up in your browser and enjoy the title screen. A lot of work went into the art for this one, and it really paid off.
