Small Town Murders
“Small Town Murders” from acclaimed game developer Rovio is a narrative match-3 mobile puzzle game, set in the idyllic hamlet of Thornton Grove, where players can solve puzzles, collect clues and interrogate a quirky cast to find the killer.
To advertise the game, Goodbye Kansas Studios and Rovio produced a series of short films revolving around the two main characters: the aspiring writer Nora Mistry and the dashing Deputy Shanahan.
