Description from the packaging.

The Murder Club is just dying to meet you!

Have you ever wanted to plan the perfect murder? Think about it. Scheming every diabolical detail: the alibi, the weapon, and best of all... the victim. The Murder Club has. In fact, each one of them has made a killing devising deathtraps.

Killed Until Dead introduces you to Mike Stammer, Agatha Maypole, Lord Peter Flimsey, Claudia Von Bulow and Sidney Meanstreet... five of the world's best selling murder mystery writers and charter members of the illustrious Murder Club. Each year these brilliant criminal minds meet for their annual reunion at the Gargoyle Hotel. They sip fine brandy, compare notes on their latest pulp plots and, after dark, engage in a most stimulating hobby. A pastime that is guaranteed to get the blood flowing.

They try to murder each other. For real.

In Killed Until Dead, someone in the Murder Club is going to attempt the perfect murder before the clock strikes midnight. The only thing that stands in the killer's way? You- the world's greatest detective, Hercule Holmes. You must solve the whodunnit before someone's gone and done it!

Will you cash in on a hunch or bite on a red herring? Will your persistence uncover a hidden clue or put you at the wrong end of a loaded .45?

Remember, time is on the murderer's side. Get all of the facts straight before you blow the whistle. For if you point the finger prematurely, Hercule Holmes, you will be checking out of the Gargoyle Hotel before the continental breakfast.

In a body bag!

Step into the Gumshoes of the world's greatest detective!
As Hercule Holmes, you'll experience all the elements of detective work firsthand. All of the tools of your trade are right on your office desk. Leaf through your notes, check profiles and character sketches, and access your electronic surveillance equipment.

The first genuinely interactive murder mystery game.
Through text, graphics and animation you'll interact directly with all of the sinister characters in Killed Until Dead. Call Sidney Meanstreet on your video phone. Notice how his blubbery lip quivers nervously as you inquire about the missing axe. You may be onto the killer!

All the gadgets of modern sleuthdom are at your fingertips.
A great detective must have eyes in the back of his head. In Killed Until Dead, you've got eyes (and ears) in every room! Your electronic surveillance equipment makes it possible to eavesdrop on the suspects and break into their rooms to collect valuable clues. But wait! You must answer a murder trivia question correctly before your break-in is complete.
