In Stonewall Penitentiary, there are seven suspects…and any one of them could be the killer. Who is it? You’ll have to use your detective skills to find out!
Becca Ronni – Becca is a no-nonsense lawyer who is guarded and mistrustful. She didn’t wake up in the same place as the others. What is she hiding?
Gerard Auberon – Gerard is a hard-to-read loner, and he likes it that way. He doesn’t say much, but he seems loyal. Or is that an act?
Grayson Wilford – Grayson is a take-charge businessman who isn’t shy about barking orders. But is he authoritative or self-serving?
Jessie Bartlett – Jessie is a friendly, inquisitive teen girl who doesn’t hesitate to let others know what she thinks of them. Does she have a dark side?
Louis Algar – Louis Algar is a D-level actor with a sick sense of humor and a huge ego. Could this all be a game to him?
Sonny Peyton – Sonny is a shy computer programmer who, despite being terrified, is quite resourceful. Why is he so helpful?
William Thane – Will is a down-on-his-luck painter who is currently unemployed and struggling with both alcoholism and depression. Throughout the game, you play as Will…but that doesn’t mean he isn’t also a suspect!
