    Greetings again everyone! Hope you've had an amazing week and are ready for an even better weekend, because that's exactly what we've got planned! I'm super duper excited to share yet another amazing Murder Mystery update with you for the second week in a row, I know right? So sit back, take a read and I'll see you online when you're done!

    Throwable Knife

    Stuck in a sticky situation? See a tasty player but unable to reach them? Well, the new Throwable Knife is the perfect solution for you! Murderers can now throw their knife to get those pesky innocents when they just can't reach! Simply aim your knife at the target, right-click, and watch the magic happen! However, the Murderer only gets 3 throwing knives each game, so use them wisely!

    Player Tracker
    Having trouble finding those last few hiders? Have no fear, the Player Tracker is now here! We have added a new high-tech tracking tool for murderers to locate innocents. Murderers will now receive the Player Tracker in their inventory when there is only one remaining innocent or when it is the last minute of the game. This tracker will point in the direction of the nearest innocent, good luck!

    New Map: The Ink Machine [This Weekend]

    Introducing our brand new map: The Ink Machine, a spooky old maintenance floor containing a boiler and tons of gear machinery. Creep through dark corridors as you find your way around the abandoned ink-splattered map. Find secrets hidden around which will reveal the history of the machine and show you the steps to restore the main power. This map will go live on the Network over the next few days, so stay tuned!

    Murder Mystery Statistics

    Finally, when you win a game of Murder Mystery, you'll be able to brag to your friends about it! We have an awesome new statistics system which will keep track of cool stats based on your progress of playing the game. We'll be tracking Karma, Killed Murderers, Times Murdered, Bystanders Killed, Games Played (Wins and Loses), and Total Parts Collected. Players will be able to view their statistics in a Murder Mystery lobby, and soon in the Main Hub!

    Minor Changes
    With this update, we've fixed quite a few bugs as well as making a few smaller changes regarding the gameplay. Be sure to let us know what you think in the comments below!

    • Dead Players Tag: Murderers can now see which players are dead as they are marked in the tab list. No longer will murderers forget who they've killed!
    • Gameplay Sound Effects: We've added some spooky new sound effects to make the game feel even more intense! As you're walking around, you'll now begin to hear creaks, doors opening and much worse! But, will you know if it's fake or real?
    • Bullet Restrictions: No longer will you be able to spray bullets without thinking! After this update, Innocent users will only have 5 available bullets each time they craft a gun! However, the Detective is gifted with the ability to shoot as many times as they like, so make sure you stay close!
    • Game Finishing Message: At the end of the game, you'll now see a fancy new message in chat, that will display which team won, along with what users were the Murderer and the Detective!
    • Frozen While Waiting: At the beginning of each game, you'll now notice that you're frozen and unable to move while your role is being selected, this allows you to focus on your goal and prepare to win! Along with this, we have added some cool new sounds to the role selection animation.
    Phew, wasn't that a mouth full? We hope you Skytonian's enjoy this week's update and be sure to let us know your feedback below! Also, don't forget that today is a very special day, so be sure to come online if you want to see something special...

    Well I'm not playing murder anymore.
    Too broken for the murderer.
    First they could sprint, now they can through knifes? Okay.

    Actually, unless they add leader boards.

    The murderer only has 3 throwing knives, while the detective has unlimited shots. :)

    If you feel like something should be changed to improve the game, feel free to let us know!

    Personally, I think the Innocent Finder should only be 30 seconds. Because the murderer can easily find the innocents in one minute. But 30 seconds it will be more easier for the innocents to survive

    Cool update :).

    WAIT DOORS OPENING DOES THAT MEAN YOU CAN OPEN DOORS AGAIN?? ;-;

    Also, I agree with this... it's too OP rn, especially with the throwing knives. The murderer can easily wait until the end and find everyone immediately
