I have a business with a partner writing murder mystery dinner party games which we sell on Amazon and via our own site, whodunnitdinners.co.uk. It requires an ability to plan out a whole plot with coherence and a healthy sense of the ridiculous – none of the plots take themselves too seriously.
We write games for adults and teens, sometimes we adapt and sometimes we write specifically for teens. The rules we follow are to avoid the innuendo, keep it light and not talk down to teens. That part is very important.
It’s great fun writing murder mysteries and even better knowing that people are out there enjoying your writing.
