Description

The player is Max, an American journalist in Paris. There seems to be a story at hand, about a big drug dealer who is covered by some influential person in politics. To get the dealer talking, the player offers him a photography in exchange for some information. But when the player gets there, the druglord is dead and everyones on their back - mistaking them for the killer.

The game itself is a movie adventure on four CD-ROMs, dividing gameplay in Clue- and Action-turns. The player can control the game completely via mouse.

Trivia

The game was originally developed by Cocktel Vision under the title "Lost in Town" (which later became the subtitle of the game). It was considered to be a part of the "Lost in..." series of the French developer. Unfortunately they were taken over by Sierra during the creation of the game, which changed marketing strategies.
