Released on October 24, 2023, by EQ Studios, 'Scene Investigators' is a deductive reasoning game that's perfect for fans of detective movies, true crime, and escape room puzzles. In this game, you embark on a journey to become a Scene Investigator as a trainee. You are given multiple case files as tests, and your goal is to solve them and earn the highest rating.
The gameplay starts with analyzing crime scenes, formulating hypotheses, and ultimately reaching conclusions. Through this process, you can verify whether your deductions are accurate. This allows players to have a simulated experience of what it's like to be a real detective. Especially for those who are passionate about solving cases, this game will likely further fuel that enthusiasm
Here, we will provide additional information about deductive reasoning.
Deductive reasoning is a method of logically deriving specific conclusions from general premises. This form of reasoning is 'necessary' and can yield 'absolutely' accurate conclusions, provided that the premises are true. This distinguishes it from inductive reasoning, where the relationship between premises and conclusion may only be 'probable.'
A typical format of deductive reasoning is called 'syllogism.' For example, from the general premise that 'all humans will eventually die,' and the specific premise that 'Socrates is a human,' one can deduce the conclusion that 'Socrates will eventually die.'
This reasoning process can also be formally expressed using symbols or numbers, forming the basis of general logic. However, if the premises are incorrect, the conclusion may also be incorrect. Therefore, the accuracy of the premises is extremely important
Scene Investigators" is a meticulous detective game designed for those captivated by detective movies, the true crime genre, and escape room puzzles. As a scene investigator, players take on the role of meticulously analyzing crime scenes and connecting evidence to solve cases.
The game goes beyond merely clarifying what happened; it also explores the relationship between the perpetrator and the victim. The primary tools for players are keen observational skills, mental agility, and everyday wisdom.
Of particular note is the system of 'calculated assumptions' based on the 70/30 rule. Not all evidence necessarily exists at the scene. Therefore, players must rely on their own intuition and assumptions to fill in the missing information.
Moreover, the game has a high level of social interaction, allowing for a deeper sense of satisfaction in solving cases when played with friends or family. Each player may provide clues or information that others may have overlooked.
In terms of gameplay, this title places more emphasis on reasoning based on observation and assumptions compared to its predecessor, "The Painscreek Killings." This allows players to hone a diverse set of skills necessary for solving cases.
The Painscreek Killings: Getting Closer to the Truth of an Unsolved Case
Developed by EQ Studios, "Scene Investigators" stands apart from the company's previously released adventure game, "The Painscreek Killings." In the latter, players assume the role of journalist Janet, investigating mysterious murders and supernatural events in an abandoned town. On the other hand, "Scene Investigators" offers gameplay that mimics real-world detective work. Players gather evidence, find connections, and unravel who killed Vivian Roberts.
This game provides an experience that goes beyond a mere walking simulator. Players can enjoy a captivating story with the freedom to explore while solving detective-like puzzles that don't hold their hand. Taking photos for articles is also an important element within the game.
"The Painscreek Killings" is available on Steam for $19.99 and supports Japanese. However, "Scene Investigators" takes a different approach, offering players a new kind of detective experience.
