Description

You play detective McBlade, who one day receives a mysterious letter and decides to find the sender. He is requested to solve a murder case of 60 years ago. The identity of the murderer was never determined. You have your reasons to assume that this murder is somehow connected to the ancient Indian myth of the Death Cave. In spite of the great danger, you start your investigation.

This is a traditional third-person point & click adventure with an emphasis on dialogue.
