Glasgow, 1st June, Blazing Griffin releases the 5th episode of the 8-chapter puzzle-solving detective video game Murder Mystery Machine on Apple Arcade, titled “ The Immortal Eye”.

 “The Immortal Eye”, challenges detectives Cassandra “CC” Clarke and Nathanie “Nate” Huston to unravel the mysteries surrounding the murder of an established journalist.  The detectives find themselves pulled into a web of clues that link all the way back to their first investigation. With little evidence at the scene of the crime, CC and Nate are forced to investigate what the journalist was working on - opening up a Pandora's box of potential clues, all of which need to be carefully sifted through to expose the truth.  Players will need to explore new environments and return with suspects to old locations and re-interrogate familiar faces to uncover the truth behind the killing.

Justin Alae-Carew, Co-Head of Games, Blazing Griffin - “Episode 5 is where players will start to see a larger story emerge, that goes all the way back to the very first scene of the game. This is something we've been crafting to echo our favourite detective shows on TV: individual mysteries with each episode but a gradual building of tension and story as these mysteries begin to link together as the season progresses. We're excited to see what players make of the story as it unfolds.”
