Look at the evidence. Interview the defendant. Cast your verdict.

Our immersive true-crime mysteries deliver the thrill of a live performance into your home with skill and enthusiasm. They require every member of your team to be focused and motivated as they locate, decipher and sift through the evidence. You even get to question defendants as you piece together the details of the crime. 

But then, just as you think you’ve got things figured out, a new wave of incoming calls, texts and emails will appear. Does this new information change everything? Who – and what – can you really trust?

We offer three immersive cases, all based on actual crimes. Each is designed to put your team’s investigative skills to the test like never before. Choose any one, or go for the trifecta and enjoy solving all three. 

Choose Your Case

The Arsonist – One fire. One dead man. One guilty plea for arson, but not for murder. Something doesn’t add up.

The Inquest – One body in the river. Six statements. Ten years of questions. What happened to Scott Davies?

The Office Party – After the carnage of the office party last night, a dead body – the boss. You have two witnesses in the drunk tank, and limited time to find out what they saw – if they can remember.

Choose Your Case

All three experiences challenge teams to work together to unravel a mystery and decide the defendant’s fate. You’ll interact with live actors, review written, visual and audio evidence, and come to a collective conclusion via a vote.

The questions you ask, and what avenues of investigation you pursue, are up to you.

The Arsonist


This crime challenge features a live actor as the defendant, plus a dedicated facilitator to keep the whole experience on track. You have the power to decide the fate of a man charged with arson and murder. As you question him and sift through a the evidence database, you’ll also have incoming texts, calls, and emails trying to sway your decision. You’ll also uncover new evidence that needs to be decrypted. Can your team work together effectively enough to find the truth?

The Inquest


This crime challenge features two live actors in the roles of an overworked Coroner and a tech-whiz Archivist. You’ll also have access to classified files and recordings from a decade-old cold murder case. As you sift through social media, reply to mysterious emails and decipher puzzles to uncover new information, you and your team must work with the Coroner and Archivist in your quest to uncover the real facts of the case. But who can you actually trust?

The Office Party


The Office Party really brings the fun and excitement of a live event to the virtual experience. In this crime challenge, you’ll need to cross-examine two outlandish characters. Naturally, they both have conflicting stories. As you question your hilarious witnesses, your job is to cut through their drunken haze and sort the lies from the truth. Between the eyewitness accounts and security camera footage, can you figure out what really happened on that fateful night? Who killed the boss? And more importantly, why?

Let's talk.

For more than 20 years, we’ve been helping teams like yours enhance open communication and build team camaraderie. If you want to rekindle the bonds your team once shared, or you’re assembling a new virtual team for the post-pandemic world, we are here to help.
