Use of Procedural Content Generation Methods

From one of the game's reviews:

The game unfolds with a newspaper story announcing how a sleuth has been called in to investigate an unsolved murder in a stately home. By altering the dates and the names you can change the parameters of the game making it more difficult and generating a different set of possibilities. This way, you can either go back to a murder you failed to solve, or create a new game. Ther are, according to the autors, nearly three million possible games so you should not find yourself playing old games too often.
