Detective Fulton:

the Barlow manor mistery

Solve the mistery of Barlow manor and escape before you go mad.

Features

Story-driven

Detective Fulton is trapped in an inhabited manor with 4 other people. There is a glowing door with strange glyphs and symbols, and the entrance door is sealed with what looks like magic.

Who did this? How did this people, who did not know each other, ended up in the same place at the same time?

The door is sealed, there is no other exit and no one knows where any of you are. There is only a path you can take, a path through time.

I liked this a lot! But I am unsure about having finished; I'll try to keep this spoiler free. After I went through all of the doors, the criminal asked what gave them away, and after the text vanishing, nothing else appeared.

Hi! Thanks for playing the game :)
Indeed you may have encountered a rare issue just when you were about to complete it.
We've been looking into it and it is fixed now. Also, we have added a few more fixes and some QoL upgrades.

Hope you can revisit the manor and see how everything unfolds :)
