Homicide A Serious Game to teach forensics in classroom.

Homicide is an IT-supported role-playing game where players play forensic experts solving four different murder cases. The game takes a week of school to play through and is organized as a combination of work in investigative groups (each working on their case) and meetings where groups share information about their individual case and are encouraged by the chief of police - the teacher - to set new goals in their investigation. The game ends with the groups presenting their theory to the other teams and writing an indictment based on the evidence and testimonies of suspects and witnesses. The interaction in the game is primarily between the students in the classroom and not a computer-student interaction as seen in most traditional computer games.
