Thank goodness you're here, I've been desperate for help for ages now.

Oh, but where are my manners. The name is Warrane Worthington, I'm a dark investigator; it's my job to track down the very worst crimes, spirits and tales in the land, and Warwick is a BIG culprit.

You see, this town has been trying to paint itself as this pretty picture for ages, by hiding its worst stories with tricky puzzles and passwords.

As my trainee investigator, you can help crack these codes and discover the dark truth!

A fun little tour even for those who think they know Warwick. Obviously aimed at children but we enjoyed solving the puzzles. It would be great to see a score board to see how our score ranked against others!
