More from the game:

It’s Amy Rose’s birthday and she’s hosting a murder mystery party on the Mirage Express! When Sonic the Hedgehog becomes the game’s victim, everyone is off to get to the bottom of things. However, something feels a bit off – is this really an innocent game or is something more sinister afoot?

Interrogate some of your favorite characters from the Sonic series as you figure out what happened to Sonic. Play as a new character who is starting their first day working on the Mirage Express, and meet the kind Conductor who is finally retiring from his long run with the train!

This project has been a labor of love from the Sonic Social team and a host of amazingly talented people who are just as passionate about Sonic as we are. Thank you so much for being a part of this with us, and we hope you all enjoy!
