Developer's Artistic Statement

Detective Bullshit was made to answer our desire to argue with our friends about who was right about something you can't be proven right about. We found the most fun of any game wasn't the card you played, but how you could BS your way into making that card support an entirely unfounded theory and joke. Now we get to enjoy watching others argue for the sake of it over and over again.

Detective Bullshit is a title featured at IndieCade 2017.

About Detective Bullshit

Detective Bullshit is a game of hot air and cold caess for 3-5 players you win by making shit up.

Think of Clue meets Cards Against Humanity, sort of. It's a competitive storytelling game centered around a fictional criminal case. Unlike Clue, there's no right answer, but like Cards Against Humanity, the fun is in getting your friends to pick your ridiculous story.

For each case, one player is Chief Bullshit and other players are detectives.

The Chief draws a victim card and decides the location of the crime. It's then up to the other detectives to play suspect cards from their hands and convince the Chief that their suspect is guilty. But things get complicated in the 3 rounds of each case as additional evidence, complications, and bribery keep even the best bullshitters on their toes.
