The office, home base for Steven's investigations.
New places will appear on the city map as Steven discoveres clues. Travelling takes time and/or money.
Investigating the crime scene. Steven doesn't collect objects and thus doesn't need an inventory.
Steven employs several strategies of research. 1) The computer system's reports database. This is also where Steven gambles money on the stock market.
2) The telephone, where Steven calls and questions an increasing number of suspects and witnesses. Not everybody is home at all times, so timing is important.
3) Dave the Informer is a rich source of information. In addition, Steven visits and interrogates people.
4) Surveillance is exhausting and sometimes dangerous, but often highly rewarding.
Crime city comes with an RPG flavor: Steven has several stats and talents which increase through training.
Steven investigates another crime scene. A hint?
As days pass, events occur that open up new leads.
Of course, things make a turn for the worse. The prime suspect? Turn up dead.
