Gameplay involves walking up to objects to examine them or collect them, and talking to characters to progress the story. Fans of LucasArts games of the 90's will recognise the nods to titles like The Secret of Monkey Island. There is a lot of narrative which is presented as voice-over and subtitles. It plays as an interactive mystery novel for young and old.
