How do i open the Toy? (from zane)


you gotta put it in that toxic macaroni

I loved the game it was so fun to navigate through the clues and helping out  cheeky kids. Art style and the jazz in the background made it a million times more enjoyable like an 80's retro criminal movie. Amazing work !!!

That was an amazing game and concept.


How do i combine the battery, cassette and tape recorder? I am very uneducated in the ways of old

Never mind, I didn't have to! Anyways, this was a great game! I loved the art style, the jazzy detective-themed music is immaculate! Overall great game!

Very cute! Question though: is there something we can do with the quarters besides give them to the nerdy kid? I avoided that and then had 11 at the end of the game.

This was fun! I had some trouble with the batteries but thanks to the comments I finished it. Loved the concept and the art :]

Absolutely love this game. Music, Dialogue, and Art really just were perfect. Would definitely play again. I recommend this to everyone on here. I need more!!!

how to get the net fot the batteries?

you have to give the crying girl out front something sad-looking :)

Thanks!!!!!, i finished it!


Finished the game! It's so good. I enjoyed the art as well. However, I pity Melvin. I understand the hatred for PE. Overall, great game and art. I hope to play more games made by you hehe. 

Great art and wonderful dialogue! I love this~~ :3


can anybody help? ive grabbed the key in the cafeteria yet it doesnt let me open the drawer


It's in the bottom drawer in the math room.

This game was really cute! The idea of a kid with the same internal monologue as a noir detective was really well done, and quite unique. Enjoyable all around :)


how do you get the batteries?


put the outlaw laser robo geek in the macaroni thing in the cafeteria it will burn


1I really like these types of games and yours definitely did not disappoint! I loved the storyline.

Keep making more!! 


how do you combine to get a recorder?

Sir, it tells you in the description that you cannot combine stuff.

sorry sir

i see it now

i finished! very cute game :D

This game was so adorable!


This was so much fun!

Amazing game idea and perfectly executed!

Cutest Game ever. Had me stumped at first. Great puzzles! I enjoyed it very much!


Enjoyed the game! Reminded me of the movie "Brick" a little. Would love to see it grow with more cases to solve! Interface and gameplay was very straightforward (glad you included the comment about not trying to combine items within your inventory).

crying dogs and cats

It was so fun, I like to see more games like this!

My gameplay/guide

I won't be using this site (for editing videos), since the screen record editing is limited lol

(Let's not mind how horrible my gameplay is and the picture you see right now lol)


is it just me or is Bill Cipher on the food chart?


I keep getting stuck after getting the batteries out of the game console, my checklist only says i need to find where melvin is and no characters have anything left to say to me :( I try to talk to melvin but it keeps saying i need more evidence 


you need to put the package into the mystery mac in the cafeteria

howd you get the batteries out im stumped

(1 edit) (+2)

use the net ( sorry im a lil late )


how do you get the recorder to work? I tried combining items, but nothing happened.


you dont have to do anything, just speak with melvin ( you probably figured that out )

how do I get the key for the desk?


check the vent in the cafeteria 


1 word..  Meow.

(Yesh a catto)

Nice game, I felt like everything was a bit too obvious at the start but at the end you had me stumped. :D

The arrow UI that is supposed to lead to "The Front" is missing...

someone got me to press alt f4 when i was near the end so had to play it again... really good game though a little hard, I really enjoyed trying to figure things out and finally getting it right~

Cute! i love the detective vide, and music, and i'm all ears for busting a criminal. Lol, thank you so much for making this game. 10/10

Super duper cute and fun game. I loved the music and the art. The music gave it the feel of a detective game even though you're just a hall monitor busting a kid for forgery and giving him detention. 10/10.

Really cute game. I love how the atmosphere and dialogue gives off the atmosphere of the classic detective puzzles games with a murder or robbery to solve. It's quick and easy too if you take to time to look at almost everything. Tho, I don't get what that frog pencil was for. Something to throw the player off? Anyways, it's pretty straightforward when played right at fun. 5 stars.  

That was a very enjoyable experience from start to finish! Well, barring that time the downloaded version crashed on me, which happened after I talked to Gilbert the first time; I'd been collecting the quarters and tried to click and use them on him, but the icon was that of my whistle and when I clicked on Gilbert, the game threw up an error screen. I switched to the browser version, which worked fine... though that may be because I avoided doing the above.

That aside, the game is obviously well-crafted and the pixel style is great: The environments fit the game perfectly and are filled with humorous asides and the character sprites are filled with personality. The GUI works excellently and has a friendly, chunky feel without being too "kiddy," and I think both the writing and the gameplay is accessible and enjoyable for actual kids as well as older players... though most kids probably won't get a lot of the references. I especially enjoyed your writing, which was witty throughout and absolutely nailed the pulpy crime/film noir style, which is easy to parody but difficult to parody well especially in an all-ages way. The BGM fit the atmosphere perfectly and I was genuinely satisfied after solving the final puzzle; the puzzles themselves were pretty straightforward, but that's probably more accessible to people who aren't familiar with the adventure game genre.

The game may be short, but I had a lot of fun with it. Thanks for making it available!


I LOOOVVEEE this game. Such a cute art style and i love the music :)
