XD (we just can't make a simple challenge it seems).

So you pick a person, a weapon and a room. Then you can pixel a scene of the crime. Or a 2D game mockup of the crime. Maybe sprites of these. Anything at all, be creative.

So long as WHO with WHAT and WHERE is clearly shown.

This is a screen from the SNES version of the game for reference.
But note that a mockup is not required the scene could have the person and weapon in the room. Realistic is good too.

The victim is always Dr. Black - who crawls his way to the foot of the stairs in the hallway. :o

OKay, I have a couple questions...
  1. Does it have to be anything like the image shown, or can it be anything as long as it tells who, where, what?
  2. Do we have to have to use the names that are in the real game or can we make up our own? (Same thing with murder weapons and places?)
  3. Is there a canvas size restriction?
  4. Animation allowed?

    Edit:
  5. Oh, and can you have deaths w/o killers? lol

    Edit 2:
  6. And can I have multiple scenarios in one animation? lol

I chose Col. Mustard with the knife in the kitchen with the following idea..
Col. Mustard, is a mustard pot, using the knife to kill a ketchup bottle.
Brill or what, eh? Eh?
Ok, so it's naff and cheesy, but oh well I'm sticking with it :)
