Little Rock Horror Shop Murder!

Hyde Studios is probably best known for its cliché-crammed science fiction and horror B-movies. They may have flopped at every box office release but have surged in popularity since thanks to their cult status as being the cheesiest movies around.

With a new science fiction double feature in the early stages of production, the last thing anyone expected was for the studio owner and director, Jacqueline Hyde, to vanish mysteriously one evening, leaving no traces apart from a pool of blood, an upturned sign and a slight burning smell.

What happened to Jacqueline Hyde? Where is her body? Who is responsible? And will the new B-movie, ’Little Rock Horror Shop’, ever be made?

    Our group enjoyed the game. Instead of our usual annual Halloween party, we played this game. Our eight player game took about 2.5 hours to play, with only short restroom breaks. There was some confusion with dialogue that may or may not have been operator error. To solve the crime, the hints were in the story if you were paying attention. The B movie references were spot on. I would suggest a “setting” description also be included in the mystery. This was our first attempt at a virtual murder mystery event, but I am sure we will try another story. We all had a good time.

How it works:

Don’t panic! There is no special acting required. Guests do not need to memorise any information, and everything they need to play their parts is provided in a handy booklet. The games are constructed so that everyone has to interact, and scripted dialogues are included to help break the ice and get everyone into character. Even total novices get into the swing of things quite quickly!

The game includes both sound files (MP3 with a download or CD with a boxed set) and a script for the inspector character who provides the setting, clues, and summaries for each round, as well as the final solution. This means as host you too can play and remain completely in the dark as to the culprit, or play the inspector yourself and invite an extra guest to the party!

Each “download and print at home” kit is provided as a zip file containing a set of PDF files for you to print at home, and a selection of MP3 files to use on the night.

Each dinner party game requires use of a printer and A4 paper (approx. 80 sheets for a 6 player kit – 240 sheets for a 20 player kit), envelopes so you can send out your invitations, and either a laptop or MP3 player (e.g. an ipod) to play the inspector MP3s; OR a CD burner so you can burn the MP3s onto a CD to run in an ordinary CD player.

When you order the game you’ll be sent a link to download the files you need.  The file will be a zip file.  This can be opened with a zip compatible program on your computer.  If you struggle to open zip files – we can email you the game directly over several emails instead – just contact us after purchase to arrange this.

Characters in the game:


Frankie Furtive – Outrageous non-binary scientist. (Gender Neutral)
Sweet and sexual, from an as yet unexplored planet, Frankie has rather unusual attire for a laboratory worker – stockings and a corset!

Madge Entatona – Maid. (Female)
Rather unorthodox, Madge is not what you might expect from your average suburban cleaner.

Venus Flytrapp – Walking, talking plant. (Gender Neutral)
Dressed entirely in green, Venus has very red lips and a larger-than-life personality.

Seymour Plants – Flower shop assistant. (Male)
With thick-rimmed glasses and a V-neck sweater/vest, Seymour is not exactly a girl magnet.  That’s what probably makes him an ideal employee!

Niff-Naff – Handyman. 9Male)
Bald and creepy, Niff-Naff has a habit of lurking in dark corners.

Audrey Skidrow – Co-worker of Seymour Plants. (Female)
Shy, friendly and awkward, Audrey is a lisping, conservatively dressed blonde bombshell.

Customise this game

This game can be customised to fit your event for an additional fee.

It’s hard to give “ball park” figures for what different customisations would cost however we’ve attempted to HERE.  Please do contact us for a free quote if you would like any customisations on your game before purchase.

Remember… if you just need 1 extra person, or 1 less person, why not have someone play the inspector role?

The inspector can usually be male or female as the “for real” inspector can simply invent a new name for themselves.

Some hosts prefer to play the inspector role as it means they can work on the catering while the round plays out amongst their guests.
