OverviewOverview

Solve the 1994 mystery of a murdered man by searching an old police computer archive of interview videos of his wife. The game presents a retro computer interface but the interviews themselves are short films with real actors. Although there are only seven films, they are fragmented into short tapes. Each clip uncovers more events and characters that can be used to search the computer database for further interview segments. It starts as a simple task of observation but becomes a challenge of noticing links and inconsistencies, then figuring out the correct words and phrases to search for specific clips.

The mystery is powerfully compelling because all the information is available if you know what to search for. The forensic search of this historic data is hugely satisfying as the true story finally emerges.
