Falsely accused

Culture theme

The protagonist is falsely accused of committing some (likely horrible) crime and much of the story involves proving that you didn't do it, simply running away from the law, or otherwise attempting to cope with it.


Alternate name: Framed

The first video game about Falsely accused was released in 1984.

Infocom, Icom Simulations and Capcom has published most of these games

Applies regardless if this false accusation is intentional or a mistake. Meaning this covers being purposefully framed, evidence pointing at the protagonist, or even being found on the crime scene and thought of as a prime suspect as no others can be deduced.
