Blue Toad Murder Files is a murder mystery video game developed and published by Relentless Software. The game is episodic and the first instalment will be released for the PlayStation 3 via the PlayStation Store in December 2009.[2][3]

The game is for one to four players and leans towards TV murder mysteries with "witnesses, alibis [and] motives" rather than being a logic puzzle like Cluedo.[4] The game sees the player investigate murders and interrogate residents in the village of Little Riddle. Aspects of the game have been compared to the Professor Layton series of games, regarding its setting and puzzle solving game mechanic, but it differs from the Layton games in that the puzzles in Blue Toad are more closely linked to the game's storyline. At various points the game questions the player about their investigation and key plot points to check that they were paying attention.[5]

We were kind of looking to recreate the kind of experience that people are used to with seeing TV shows like Midsomer Murders, Agatha Cristie type stuff where there are witnesses, alibis, motives, more that kind of style.""
