Pureluck Homes is a feline consulting detective. Jane Ampson a freelance writing mouse. Together they are the Sleuthhounds and they’re here to solve the confounding crimes baffling police forces the world over.
Sleuthhounds is a series of computer adventure games where you (yes, you!) take control of both Pureluck Homes and Jane Ampson. You’ll guide the detecting duo through their most challenging and hi-larious cases (you’ll know they’ll be funny because hilarious was spelt with a hyphen). Set in the ever expanding Cubes storyverse, discover more about the Sleuthhounds cases below.

Can they save the day, win the Halloween contests, and ferret out the perpetrator all before the party ends with a bang?
Take on the roles of Pureluck Homes and Jane Ampson in this haunting case.

Pureluck Homes has been abducted! He awakens from a chloroform induced stupor to find himself trapped in a dungeon. The only way out: an open hatch in the ceiling above, tantalizingly beyond his reach.
