What are murder-mystery games?

Murder-mystery games are a genre of tabletop role-playing game genre that has become popular in Asia since the late 2010s, particularly in China where it is known as Jubensha 剧本杀.

Basically, a scenario of a murder or other incident is prepared in advance, and participants take on the role of the characters in the story, proceeding through the game while conversing with each other with the aim of finding the culprit (whose role is to escape).

Since the scenario provides each character's background story and describes their actions on the day of the incident, players can enjoy an experience akin to stepping into the world of a detective novel.

Here are the hololive Vtubers who will be participating:
