A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android

Buy Now$4.99 USD or more

A strange murder has occurred in the Hotel Lisbon, a man committed suicide with 14 stabs to the back while at the same time he peacefully drank his coffee.
This case with contradictory facts was too complex for Policeman Garcia to solve, so he decided to hire the only detective duo in town capable of solving it: the mythical Detective Case and the unmistakable Clown Bot.
Together, they will solve a network of love relations so complex and so intricate, that it would take at least 14 clairvoyants, 5 apocalyptic sect prophets who can predict the end of the world and 3 of those gypsies that can read the palm of your hand just to guess the final outcome.

I can't seem to finish side quest number 1. I have all three items but I can't seem to interview Garcia.

I've downloaded the mac version on the game but, i'm unable to launch it, it says the file is corrupted. Can this be fixed? the game seems awesome

Whenever I launch the game (windows 11), I get past the title screen and am unable to do anything and it show button prompts instead of keyboard prompts. Game looks great so I hope you have a solution.

Having a strange error and am unable to launch a new game. For some reason in the main menu my X and O button are flipped so while it says O to cancel and X to continue I have to do the opposite. When I go to start a new game it opens a menu to adjust sound settings and pick a language but I am unable to hit X to continue. Nothing works at all and I can't actually get the game to start. I tried using keyboard to hit enter or any other option on the controller but it just remains on the settings menu. Any ideas what might be causing the game to refuse to launch?

Hello, I want to play this game but... the Mac version seems to have a bug in it (Exit code 0x1) that makes me unable to launch it. I've come here instead of sending a report because that's causing itch.io to freeze up. Can this be resolved?

Brillant game, unique artstyle and music, great fun and a pure pleasure to play. I already own this magnificent piece of a game on Steam but will purchase it here again, just because I love it so much. I never played the second part however. Any chance for a DRM-free version here on itch.io?

Hi! Thank you. ^_^ And yes, definitely the sequel as a DRM-free version is a possibility.

Glad to hear it! I'll definitively purchase it here on day 1.

I too would be interested. I don't buy things on Steam and didn't even know there was a sequel until I read the above comment.

Is the "Source" and Assets available for this game after purchase so it can be used as a learning tool for GameMaker Studio ?

(3 edits)

Hello again! =) I don't think it would be much of a learning tool because it was developed on Game Maker Studio 1.4 and it will be a pain to work with it on the current Game Maker Studio 2, but I will consider this request. Some assets will never be able to be shared even if we  decide to share the source because of licensing agreements.

Is the "Source" and Assets available for this game after purchase so it can be used as a learning tool for Pixel Game Maker ?

The game wasn't made in Pixel Game Maker, it was developed with Game Maker Studio. :)

 I found a bug: When choosing items during an interview, scrolling down through your invetory and then trying to scroll back up again, causes the game to crash.
Great game:)

It’s the first time we see this one happening =O I’ll try to see if we can fix this on time for the next build update we are planning on doing. :) Thank you for reporting it and for playing. <3

First of all, I gotta say this game has a whole lot of charm! The whole beginning sequence is fantastic! However I couldn't progress  because I received an error.  After inspecting the policeman I then clicked on the microphone and  this popped up.

I'm playing on Windows 10, Nvidia GPU and AMD CPU. If that helps.

thank you :) we’ll look into it and probably will have a newer build soon

//POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD//

I seem to be a bit stuck, I am trying to talk to Mrs. Love for the second time after calling her and she just refuses to say anything? I asked the Bot for help on what to do and he says I have to call her, yet I already did and she's in the office.

Just to check, you went back to the office and tried to talk to Mrs. Love but nothing happens? :/

What OS are you playing on? We're going to try it as well to see if we can replicate it. :)

Edit: I'm also leaving this Main and Side Quests Walkthrough link in case it is useful to you.

I play on Windows 10.

Thank you, we'll look into it. ;)

Just a quick follow up, the update is a bit delayed but we're on it. Picking up such an old project was a bit more complicated than initially expected. Thank you for your patience and understanding. :)

Hi


I'm having trouble installing on linux. When I run Case_Bot_install.sh, I get the below error messages and an empty file ~/Desktop/Case_Bot.desktop. Can you help? It seems the file Case_Bot.desktop is missing. Thank you.

chmod: cannot access 'Case_Bot/Case_Bot.desktop': No such file or directory

path to exe: /home/rob/Downloads/Games/Linux/Case_Bot/Case_Bot

sed: can't read Case_Bot/Case_Bot.desktop: No such file or directory

Done

I don’t have experience with it, I’m not a Linux user myself, but on Monday I’ll throw this one to the team to try and help out. ;) Thank you for reporting, have a nice weekend!

Hi! I just wanted to get back to you to say that we are working on this and it should be taken care of during this week. :) The build is a couple of years too old and we've found some issues because of it.

Fantastic, thank you.

Just another follow up, the update is a bit delayed but we're on it. Picking up such an old project was a bit more complicated than initially expected. Thank you for your patience and understanding. :)

Thanks for your update, I appreciate your efforts.

Hi robdavies! Thank you so much for your patience and understanding. I just uploaded a new build for Linux, please check it out. ^_^

Awesome! 10/10

thank you! ❤️ 

I'd like to download and install this game using Mitch, but apparently Mitch doesn't work well with an APK in a ZIP archive.

Further, when I do extract and install the APK: "Blocked by Play Protect. This app was built for an older version of Android and doesn't include the latest privacy protections." And: "This app was built for an older version of Android and may not work properly." The game does seem to work, though, although it makes the app switcher spazz a bit. Android 12.

Love the art style, excited to play

Yeah, it’s an 8 year old APK, sorry about that. I’ll look into the possibility of updating it though. Regarding privacy there isn’t anything in our end to store any sort of analytics or any type of data, it’s just an old point & click game. :P Thank you for playing and sorry for the annoying warnings for the old APK.

There is a problem with the registration of the game inside the Windows start menu. There is a "nsis" entry in the "Murder in Hotel Lisbon" folder, but since an nsis.exe does not exist in the supposed place it leads nowhere. I have to start the game from the game folder in the Explorer since there is no link to it in the start menu and I did not choose the option to have a link on the desktop.

Thank you for reporting this, I will look into it right away. :)

We just exported and uploaded a new build without the old installer, this should take care of the issue and make things simpler. If you have any other issues and want to talk to us more directly, we are also on Discord. Thank you and enjoy the game! ^_^

you pc download ends in "zip.exe" which i think is making my browser not allow it to be downloaded

(+1)

Hello! Thank you for pointing this out, I will take care of it ASAP. :)

The "zip.exe" was a copy paste mistake, sorry about that. Meanwhile we exported and uploaded a new build without the old installer and it's all zipped now, hopefully this will help with the issue. If you have any other problem and want to talk to us more directly, we are also on Discord. =)
