Description

Private Eye is based on the works of the writer Raymond Chandler. It is actually more of an interactive movie than a game, which uses cel animation techniques also seen in Oni. The player gets to control the famous private eye Phillip Marlowe, who is trying to do what he does best i.e., solve a murder mystery. The game features alternate endings, voice acting, lots of cut-scenes and music faithful to the 1940's era, which the game is trying to represent.
