Jessica happens on a computerized clue to a murder while writing a mystery story for a friend's interactive video game company.

Victim: James Lindstrom

Killer: Sharon Baskin

Cause of Death: Gunshot

Motive: To steal a piece of software he designed and sell it for a profit.


Final acting role of Shawn Phelan.

Oculus Rift founder Palmer Luckey said in a Wired interview that this episode inspired him to work on his virtual reality device.

The exterior of Hastings Rock in the game is remarkably similar to the castle in Murder, She Wrote: The Wind Around the Tower (1992).

The building and exterior used for the software company, Marathon Images, is the same building and exterior used as the location of the Bio-Dome in Bio-Dome (1996).


The 2nd time Jessica is playing the game she sees two battle axes hanging on a wall and asks that they be changed to sabers. Even though a tech says the axes are now changed to sabers, what actually appears are scimitars, which have a more pronounced curve to their blades than do sabers.
