Detective Grimoire is a game about the titular detective, solving the mystery of a murdered janitor at a circus.

There's a sequel on the I Phone, about a murder at a swamp.

  • Asshole Victim: Aside from Mandy, Hugh Everton was not well-liked amongst his former employers.
  • Evil Old Folks: It turns out that the killer was in fact Pete. He hated having to fix the Funhouse since Hugh was too lazy to do it.
  • Expy: The main character looks like Gumshoe, the developers even note that they explicitly based Grimoire after him.
  • Foreshadowing: According to Jerry, he witnessed Pete entering the toilet cubicle at the night of the murder. If you investigate, you find that there's a drawing there featuring Hugh getting struck by lightning.
  • Monster Clown: The game drops some pretty broad hints that the clown was the murderer. He wasn't.
  • Nice Hat: A Running Gag is pointing out the aversion of the detective having a nice hat. He apparently has one in the sequel, before shortly losing the hat.
  • Red Herring: It turns out that Charles Ringer actually WASN'T the killer.
  • Stealth Hi Bye: The girls in both games seem to vanish without a trace.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Part of the reason Pete killed Hugh was so that Mandy could run the fun house.
