It's been 30 years since a terrible arson attack erased an entire family. Until today the culprit has been on the loose. You are sent to investigate a similar incident in this narrative exploration game.

Irresponsible police detective (and part-time alcoholic) Gary Price is sent to investigate the murder of forest ranger Mike Hill. This is Gary’s last chance to save his job, as his boss Chief Gonzales grows impatient. Navigate Gary through this narrative exploration game and discover the truth about Mike Hill’s death!

The story of Scorch takes place in Beaverton, Oregon. As you play the game you can take in the beautiful scenery of the Tualatin Hills Nature Park. Uncover small mysterious as you interact with the environment: opening doors, drawers, even messing with the TV.

Gonzales will give you calls in regular intervals to check up on you and make sure you're not slacking off. Keep in mind you only have one day to solve the case. Finally, be wary of calling in the suspect: you only get one shot to answer her questions at the end.

Inside the game Gary can use his phone to organize and inspect evidence, answer calls from Gonzales, and review memos he receives while playing the game. Scorch features an original soundtrack and full voice acting.

If you're a fan of Firewatch and Gone Home, you'll love this game.

It's a very short and enyojable game. 30 Minutes well spent. Just go in with no context whatsoever and you'll do just fine ^^

A little game really nice, enough, see too short, that pushes to reflection. A little more advice would be welcome anyway:)

A nice, small and above all respectable Game, which I can only recommend. You have to clear up a Murder Case, seek Evidence and end up toting 1 and 1. You should be very attentive and remember everything well, as you end up Being asked questions. :) So have Fun solving the Case.

Very nice game with beautiful graphics. Definitely would like a longer verion of that game. Really enjoyed the bits and puzzles. DId take me around half an hour to finish and got 3/5 questions right, propably 4 cause i think i misspelled the murder's name. All in all great job and it should get appreciated way more, maybe the Dev's should add a donation button. Great Job, Dev's.

In my Opinion, an interesting Game, but unfortunately you played through it within 30 Minutes. I also think it's a shame that it only has a short Story and you can actually use the first 5 Clues to find out who the Killer was. Build in a few "unnecessary" Hints and you would then get into the Crumble-otherwise I thought the Game was very good.

Scorch Is a small-tash Short walking Simulator. You play Gary Price (Alki-Bulle) and you have to clear up a Murder otherwise you are delivered. Gameplay At the Scene you look For Circumstantial evidence and watch out, everything is important. If you have all of them, you are called and you get Asked questions. That's where you have to put in the right Things to Find the Killer. So read everything nicely. Graphics reminded me strongly of Firewatch. Big Shortcoming Was the Start. The Trees, Shrubs and Animals didn't come until I was 5 Feet away from those, before that was nothing, yawning Emptiness. (Maybe that was just with me, it's also possible) Sound Sounds of the Surroundings, Mobile phone ringing, conversation on the mobile Phone, Radio in the Kitchen was all good. Not pointed but normal. Other Season 30min FREE NO Achievements, unfortunately. Conclusion Until the Problems with the Graphics at the Beginning, then it was fine. Not pointed, but also not grotto bad, just OK. Enjoy The Beer and Lasagne
