On the mean streets of Animal City, one marmot stands on the brink between justice and oblivion.
Animal Crime is a role-playing dinner party game, at times grim and at times hilarious, which is perfect for introducing your friends to tabletop role-playing games or just spending a lovely evening together with them.
The game stars Marmot Detective, a grim-faced Marmot who has seen life, and is full of regrets. He embraces the dark underbelly of Animal City like a lover, and the bottle like his only friend. And yet, tragically, he is drawn into a web of lies and murder, looking only to find justice and the truth. Animal Crime is what would happen Dashiell Hammett wrote for Slylock Fox.
