Agatha Christie: Murder on the Orient Express draws fans in as they step aboard a lavishly appointed 1930’s era train along with a cast of 25 intriguing characters led by acclaimed Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, and including philanthropist Samuel Ratchett and Princess Dragomiroff, all traveling from Istanbul to London. The game adds a new main character to the storyline as well, Antoinette Marceau, a train company employee, crime buff and a huge fan of Poirot’s. The luxurious rail trip quickly shifts gear when a heinous murder is committed, shocking everyone aboard and fueling a hunt for the killer.

Players simply click on the rail car they want to visit to move quickly and easily from place to place. There is also the ability to skip through dialogue by pressing the enter key. This is particularly useful if a player returns to a certain section of the game for a clue but does not want to burn time listening to dialogue they’ve already heard.

Agatha Christie: Murder on the Orient Express is rated “T” (teen) and has moderate system requirements including Windows® 2000/XP and a 1.4 GHz Pentium® 3 processor.

The game is available to purchase on the Games of Mystery website on the Mystery Computer Games page.
