Description

Reed Hawke is the CEO of a powerful corporation known as Hawke Industries. He has gathered his extended family together for a weekend, preparing for an official announcement that he will be competing in the election for the President of the United States. It seems that his family supports him, but it is not so. At least one of the Hawke family members assumes that Reed Hawke is corrupt. This person hires a private investigator, who will have to discover the secrets of the family in order to obtain a definite proof of Reed Hawke's crimes.

Voyeur is an interactive movie with live action cutscenes, somewhat similar in format to the full-motion video game Night Trap. The gameplay consists of controlling various cameras located in the Hawke family estate, spying on its inhabitants and hence triggering the next movie and advancing the storyline. A unique feature of the game is the random nature of the informant within the Hawke family; his/her identity changes with every new game, which influences the subsequent narrative.

The game is notable for being the first interactive movie that featured explicit nudity and sexual situations.

Trivia

I believe this game was originally a CD-I game, for two reasons: 1. The back side of the jewelcase booklet mentiones "DOS Conversion by Entertainment Software Partners", implying that the game is not originally a PC game, and 2. on the back of the box it says "Based on original version (c) 1994 Philips Interactive Media, Inc." (Editor's Note: Tomer is right; Voyeur was CD-I's "flagship" product, meant to be the system's "killer app". It wasn't enough to save the doomed system.)

While ESRB ratings for computer games didn't exist in 1994, the game still has a "Warning: Contains Mature Subject Matter" label on its box.
