is the first game made by ICOM
, known for its adventure games such as Shadowgate
. It featured mouse support, a multi-window interface, and bitmapped graphics at a time when text-based interactive fiction was the norm.
In Deja Vu
, action takes place in Chicago in December 1941. Your character's name is Theodore "Ace" Harding - a retired boxer working as a private eye. He wakes up in a toilet stall of a sleazy pub with no memory of who he is or what he is doing there. To make matters worse, you as him soon stumble upon a very dead corpse upstairs with three bullets buried in him. Sure enough, you find there's a gun in your pocket with three bullets missing. From there you have to figure out what happened and who you are before whatever is happening to your brain turns you into a mindless vegetable. To make matters worse the cops would very much like to have a word with you about that stiff.

The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
This game was ported to a variety of systems from its original Macintosh platform, including the Nintendo NES console system. The Mac version featured significantly crispier graphics in black and white and its operating environment set the tone for the game's multi-window interface, while the NES version was subjected to several major changes (the syringe was replaced with digestible capsules, and some of the text was altered as well to save space or edit content).
