Full description

The murder at Buckingham Palace is a murder mystery inspired by true events. As an investigator, it is your duty to solve this brutal murder. You will be guided around Buckingham's historical surroundings while solving puzzles and tasks related to the surroundings. The year is 1968. You are a young and ambitious detective constable who just finished their education. While you are at a celebration at Scotland Yard another detective not attending the event finds a female corpse in the front yard of Duck Island Cottage in St. James Park. This is your chance to prove yourself worthy of promotion instead of being stuck in the same position for years to come. In the end, it is your duty as an investigator to solve this brutal murder. You must gather sufficient evidence and indict the right suspect to ensure peace for London's citizens. But it turns out that there are many possible suspects and you will be facing challenging tasks in the hunt to find the killer. How does it work? Buy it, pick it up, and play it. You can play the mystery at any time it suits you. The riddle is picked up at our shop not far away from the starting point. Good luck - you will need it!
