Buy Now$7.99 USD or more

Detective Bot is primed and ready to solve the world's hardest mysteries like where did Jeff leave his toy boat? Honestly it has been missing for about a week now and he starting to get really upset. I saw him crying in the break room, it's pretty bad.


  • Play Together

    Get together with up to 3 of your friends and cosy up on the couch for hilarious crime solving adventures. Each of you will take control of one of Detective Bot's limbs and together you will have to use your brains to solve some challenging cases. Or play singleplayer for a greater challenge where you have to control Detective Bot all by yourself!
  • Unique Physics Gameplay

    Detective Bot is controlled by moving his limbs individually which if you think about it is actually the most realistic way to control a character that has ever been done in a videogame. Bold of us to push gaming into the future you say. Why yes it is! On your adventures you will encounter all kinds of contraptions and objects for Detective Bot to play with which will result in silly and fun physics interactions that you won't be able to get enough of.
  • Become a Detective

    This game isn't just about silly physics it's also about Detective stuff too. You will have to solve some really tough mysteries but don't worry you have a bunch of tools at your disposal, you can question witness, look around for clues and build up a case against the bad guys using your detective board.
  • Wear a Hat

    Yes! We have done it, people thought it would be impossible but through our innovative and ground breaking technology we will allow you to select and wear hats! Thank you, thank you, no need to to congratulate me... Wait you're offering me knighthood? Well I'm so very honoured... And Time's person of the year? AND a Nobel prize? I couldn't really but I will of course accept all these recognitions of my success because I do deserve them

wait, so is this game only multiplayer or can you still do it single player?


It's singleplayer and multiplayer

Do you need controllers for coop?

Hi Spaghetti, yes you do need controllers


Loved the game while I played it - It's different, and I think it's hilarious! It's just soooo glitchy. I can only play for 30 seconds at a time before the game stops working. Finally gave up after awhile since I couldn't accomplish anything before the game glitched out. Would love to see this patched/fixed!

Hi Chandie, I know this is like 2 months after you originally commented but we have been hard at work ironing out all those bugs. I hope you get another chance to give it ago now we've pushed the bug fixes live!


I will give it another go! Thanks for the heads up!

I hope you enjoy!!


Any chance of a linux port?


Unfortunatly not, sorry


Played it 2 player w/ Xbox controllers for a few minutes. Loved the funny dialogue, but the controls were erratic. Once P1 switched to hand control to press the fan button, he couldn't switch back to leg control. Had to stop unfortunately but hope to play more after the kinks are ironed out.

Hey! We are sorry that you had such trouble with the game when you played it. But we've spent the past few months fixing up the bugs like the one you encountered. I hope you get a chance to revisit the game at some point :)
