Title screen.
From the intro: A group of surgeons opens Thad Beaumont's chest...
...only to make a shocking discovery.
The underdeveloped twin, named George Stark, is buried and forgotten. Until one day, his grave lies empty...
The game screen. Top: Pop-up inventory. Bottom: Icon interface in typewriter design. Middle: Hero Thad Beaumont, horror novelist...
...who writes books such as this.
How does Thad write books? The game offers valuable insights.
Smoking, Thad falls into hypnotic trance, in which he receives messages from his dark alter ego, George Stark...
...this charming fellow.
George is the type of guy who tends to make a mess...
...and drags Thad deeply into trouble.
Trouble such as this. Give clever answers in police interrogations.
Unfortunately, wherever evil twin George turns up...
...he leaves a lot of problems. And you had better prove your innocence...
...or the game ends like this.
So, to work: Collect evidence at the scenes of the crimes...
...striking evidence...
Get help and information from friends at the university...
...and resort to force when necessary.
Also, you'll have to travel to different locations...
...from Thad's small hometown (but with an old university, sure)...
...to the office blocks of New York.
Also, Thad will be on his feet at night and at day.
Poor Thad won't even find comfort in sleep: nightmares.
Scary, eh? Come on, big hero, hunt that useless brother of yours down!
