  • Assemble Grimoire's thoughts to reach conclusions about the case
  • A fully voiced and animated cast of characters to interrogate
  • Beautiful digitally painted environments to explore

“Detective Grimoire is a better detective game than the likes of, say, L.A. Noire [...] The designers knew what they wanted the game to be and ensure that nothing got in the way of it. As a result, it’s thoroughly enjoyable”
Indie Statik

“Definitely one of the better crime games I've played and it's a treat to experience”

“From the moment you set foot on the docks, Boggy’s Bog is engrossing, its characters alive and endearing”

Hey, just wanted to reply with a solution I found! All you gotta do is install this last version of Adobe AIR: https://archive.org/details/adobe-air-32.0 And then I right-clicked into Detective Grimoire, went Show Package Contents > MacOS > and opened "Detective Grimoire" instead of "Detective Grimoire_32". That's all I had to do-- lemme know if it doesn't work for you. ^_^



after 1 year for not playing the game,i change with windows now so i can play detective grimoire  sorry for replying too late;-;but if someone who has macOS want to try this trick can anyone respond to see if it works for macOS users?

And thank you for this soluce,i will try that next time i will play with macOS.

is it still possible to play the first Detective Grimoire game? Armor Games says it's currently not playable :'-(


This game is a perfect mystery in length, difficulty, humor. It kept me interested the whole way through and the voice acting was very good and animation was enjoyable.

PROMISING GAME!  Except it doesn't instal on my mac mid 2011...!!! :(
