Description

Maupiti Island is a nonlinear police investigation with graphics in 2D and is the sequel to Mortville Manor.

Whilst famous detective Jerome Lange is at sea, a cyclone (Harry) approaches and obliges his ship to put in at Maupiti Island until the weather calms. Then, as if things were not bad enough already, a woman called Marie disappears from the island! Lange gives up on his holiday to investigate, and discovers many hidden secrets lurking beneath the surface of Maupiti Island.

Trivia

Maupiti Island features a demo mode. Press ALT on the title screen to watch the computer play for you. Don't get your hopes too high, though: the demo is terribly slow and doesn't give away the solution to any puzzle - except for one little hint.
