Sixth Grade Detective — Spy on your classmates for cash!

We’re proud to announce that Sixth Grade Detective, the latest in our popular “Choice of Games” line of multiple-choice interactive-fiction games, is now available for Steam, iOS, and Android.

Round up the usual suspects—the mean girl, the new kid, the bully, the nerd, maybe even your best friend! As the sixth grade detective, you’ll spy on classmates for cash—will you keep their secrets or take the money?

“Sixth Grade Detective” is a 109,000-word interactive young-adult novel by Laura Hughes, where your choices control the story. It’s entirely text-based–without graphics or sound effects–and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

Match wits with the criminal masterminds of middle school! Solve mysterious disappearances and thefts, trace rumors, track down your best friend’s stolen bike, and most importantly—get a date to the dance.

Forge friendships, chase down thieves, or stick to your guns against bullies? Unmask them in public, or work behind the scenes to help a new friend? Will you protect the reputation of your clients, destroying evidence, or go so far as to hack your friend’s cell phone to uncover his embarrassing secret?

  • Investigate six mini-mysteries.
  • Search for clues, question suspects, crack codes, dust for fingerprints, interview witnesses, and uncover your classmates’ deepest secrets.
  • Reveal the truth, or keep silent for the greater good… or greater profit.
  • Shine in the classroom or cut school with the rebels.
  • Lie to the adults–if you can get away with it
  • Build friendships, create enemies, and find a date for the big dance.
  • Play as a girl, boy, or neither. Date classmates of any gender, or avoid romance altogether.
  • Find out who your secret admirer is

Buying this for my daughter today. She really enjoyed beta testing it and she wants to try to collect as much money as possible on her first “official” readthrough. She was super nice (too nice!) to everyone in beta testing.


Well this sounds like a job for Inspector Butters! :smile:

I bought it to test and it’s quite good for young adults.

Pretty good game, however is it possible to romance/ask Vitessa out (sorry not sure if this is the right thread)?

Not sure about young adults but its entertaining a 34 year old guy well enough :smiley:


Played through it and it was a pretty light game that was kinda cute! Makes me pretend I’m in the gang from Recess or something :stuck_out_tongue:

@SomeRandomGuy00 the highest I got her relationship stat was about 60+ and I still couldn’t ask her out…

I’m pretty sure that it’s impossible.I think the highest possible relationship with her is 73 and even then she’ll turn you down.

Who are the romance options? So far I only know of A.J. and Shashi but what about Corley and Vitessa? Also I realised that A.J.'s romance seems to have more interaction than Shashi but I haven’t completed the game yet.

I believe everyone listed under Relationships is romanceable, except for Vitessa. I could be wrong about Corley, too - never tried her. I know Evan is one, and I’m pretty sure Finnegan is, too.

This seems to be a refreshing game away from the usual supernatural themes, I’m interested to buy this is the overall game good?

It is a good little romp. It is written for a younger audience so the puzzles are easier than in other stories. The social aspects of the story are nicely tied together and it is well worth supporting.

Oh yes, it’s very good. I thought so, anyway. The characters are entertaining and lively, the plot (or plots, really) is intriguing, there’s definite replay value, and overall I had a lot of fun with it.

The game has a session of Dungeons and Dragons where you can play it to flirt with the Dungeon Master. So yes, it is worth.

Was that added?? I don’t remember that from beta testing.

Yes, thats how I started the romance with Shashi.

It’s either new from beta or I just totally missed it somehow. My daughter is playing it right this minute so I’ll mention it to her.
