About Scratch

A millionaire’s secluded estate. A collection of dead girls. A group of reluctant strangers. One is the killer ...but who? You need more than your badge and gun to catch the killer. Only a sharp mind and the right questions will uncover this mystery.

"Scratch" is a 165,000 word interactive murder mystery by Cloud Buchholz, where your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based—without graphics or sound effects—and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

You’re a small town detective. An anonymous tip leads you to a collection of sadistically murdered girls dumped on the forest estate of an eccentric, reclusive millionaire. A group of strangers are holed up in his dilapidated cabin, waiting out the recent storm.

They seem unaware of the murders, but the serial killer is hidden among them. You need to interrogate the suspects, gather clues, and stop the killer, but if you don’t tread carefully, more innocent people will die.

• Play as male or female
• Interrogate seven potential suspects and discover their sordid pasts
• Gather clues from your conversations to root out the killer
• Succumb to your alcohol addiction or fight withdrawals
• Recall cases from your past and the cruel life lessons from your Pa
• Seventeen unique endings

One of the more humane games in the CYOA games in the way that emotion is not underplayed in this one. Had a good time playing it.
