A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Back us now on Kickstarter! http://bit.ly/WinklebottomKS

Lord Winklebottom Investigates: The Case of the Expired Axolotl is a point and click narrative adventure game, set in an alternative 1920s populated entirely by animals. 

Inspired by Agatha Christie and Sherlock Holmes, the game is a classic, uniquely British, murder mystery!

This demo is a work in progress. The final game will feature improved voice acting, animation and audio, as well as an in-game note system. For now, we recommend writing down notes as you play to help you solve the puzzles.

This teaser contains unique content that won't appear in the final game, so no need to worry about spoilers!
