Eastern Market Murder
Was it Provocation, Murder or Madness?
In 1899, amongst the shopfronts of Melbourne’s vibrant Eastern Market, a sudden attack on a popular fortune-teller left her husband violently murdered. The culprit? A phrenologist with a steadfast defence, who will get away with the grisly murder if not proved wrong. Blood red radishes, a business rivalry, whispers of false friends. When everything is not as it seems, will you foresee how it ends?
With options to play at home, or at the actual locations in Melbourne Australia, you'll explore crime scenes, question witnesses and examine evidence to outsmart the killer and reclaim justice for the victim's family.
Eastern Market Murder’s true-life characters and events provide a glimpse into Australian history. I even took it upon myself to study more into persons and events showcased in this game. I truly love what True Crime Games has done and look forward to their next instalment in the future.
“Seeing so many groups of people wandering about trying to get justice for a long dead man called Frank honestly brought a tear to my eye. After seeing the city completely deserted for so many months last year, seeing so many diverse groups of people talking and laughing together truly showed the power of games in bringing our city back to life”.

We opted to play the game offline as we are still in lockdown and we had so much fun. The virtual characters were amazing and the story line kept us guessing. We had the pleasure of playing the first true crimes game a few years ago in Melbourne CBD, just as good offline and in person. Awesome fun and recommend to everyone.
“Between the meticulously researched history and the inventive use of technology, the game blends the past and present together in a super satisfying way. It’s the most impressive example of AR that I’ve seen yet.” Read full review in New Atlas.
“Wow we had such a great time using this amazing app exploring the city and solving the mystery. It’s very clever and so engaging for adults and kids alike. After this I’m more in love with Melbourne than ever and went to places I’d never seen before.”
I loved it. It is truly compelling. And fascinating. And solvable. I promise you, there is an ending. I have no idea how you will feel about it but I promise you there is an ending.” Read full review on GeekMom.com.
