A downloadable game

Somebody has been murdered! The murderer is sure they will get away with it - but the detective is on the case, and quickly sees the truth of the matter. Both of them know that the murderer did it; the question is how to prove it.

One More Thing is on Kickstarter right now - click here to check out the campaign to fund a physical boxed version of the game!

Your story begins with the murder, and continues as a back-and-forth drama playing out in the view of an imaginary television audience. The Murderer never gets away with it, but they can control how the audience sees them in the end. Were they justified in their crime? Did they see no way out of an untenable situation? Or are they a cold-hearted monster who took a life for their own material gain?

One More Thing tells compelling stories of criminals bought to justice, in the finest tradition of TV detective dramas from the 1970s to today.

This is a two-player game, but it can be played in teams as well. It takes between one and two hours to play, depending on whether you choose to play in:

  • Writers Room Mode, in which you create everything yourselves: the Murderer, their victim, what drives the murder, the Detective and their quirks, and all of the Clues involved. This mode is more of a freeform role-playing experience.
  • On Assignment Mode, in which you choose one of the included Cases and get right into the game! Each Case gives you all of the details on the Murderer, Detective and the murder itself, as well as a predetermined set of Clues. This mode is more structured and supports learning this kind of game for those who haven't played one before. It's also good for shorter games!

Audience Perception Board

Your story is being watched by an audience, and you track how they see the Murderer on this board.

One More Thing is a work-in-progress; the rules are pretty much done, but the physical form of the game is yet to be determined, and so some elements may changed based on how it ends up being produced. 

This preview edition is available for free download, and includes one premade Case for playing On Assignment: Eagle's Last Ride.

1986, Malibu. A film star is found dead after a big party at a Malibu beach house thrown by up-and-coming action movie lead David Carter. Apparently an overdose, her private insurance firm decides to look into the circumstances of the death. Good thing that their agent in the case, Barbara Fontaine, is experienced in the realm of Hollywood stars behaving badly.
