The year is 1901. You are a recently graduated police detective who is not known for their skills - yet at least.  The body of a dead woman named Mary Brown has been found on a slope outside of Edinburgh Castle.


She was an engaged waitress that was a victim to a certainly horrifying crime. Much is at stake and it is up to you to find the murderers and serve justice.


Good luck and happy solving!

The Mystery Walk

Murder at Edinburgh Castle takes place outdoors in the area around the Royal Mile and the Old Town. As a police detective, you are tasked with finding out who committed the murder of Mary Brown.


You walk and move around the town of Edinbrugh, and with the help of various clues you solve the tasks related to the historic surroundings of the city.

Eventually, you reach the VICTORIA STREET, where you gather all your clues and hopefully accuse the right person guilty of the crime.
