Our TakeMurdered: Soul Suspect has my attention. I've liked what I've seen of the procedural elements, and the supernatural hook is a good fit for my interests. My only concern is that investigation mechanics tend to bog things down. If Airtight Games can keep the pace up and the story engaging, this could be a winner in my book.
