Murder Mystery Machine's seventh episode, The Hammer and The Chain, is available now for Apple Arcade

Blazing Griffin has recently updated their puzzler Murder Mystery Machine to introduce the seventh chapter. The latest instalment is called The Hammer and The Chain and will be the penultimate episode which will take a slightly different approach compared to the prior chapters.

In The Hammer and The Chain, players will be taken back in time to explore the case that landed Nate in the DCA's basement office in the first place. This means they'll be able to play as him for the first time, back when he was new to the detective scene and investigating the death of an investment banker.
