Description

Jack Lorski, a journalist, and his girlfriend Karen Gijman have gone missing while investigating a serial killer. The only clue to their whereabouts is a CD-ROM made by somebody calling themselves the PHOENIX. Can you de-code the CD and find Jack and Karen before it's too late?

The game is a series of challenging puzzle games that must be completed to progress through the clues and reveal the rest of the story. Some of the games stand alone, some require internet access to research the solutions, and a few of the puzzles require e-mail help from other game characters.
