About me... and Murder Mystery games

This is me!This is me!

My name is Steve Hatherley and I've been hosting and playing various types of murder mystery games since the late 1990s. From the How to Host a Murder games to large events involving 30 or 40 players, I've played most types of murder mystery game (and many others besides).

Personally, I prefer the "interactive" type of murder mystery - I like the freedom to choose how to investigate and I also like the different goals that characters get in these games.

Plus I enjoy the wheeling and dealing that those games involve.

In 2001 I set up Freeform Games LLP to publish interactive murder mystery games - such as Death on the Gambia.
