Description

Set in the 1940's L.A., you are a classic P.I. and your detective buddy Jack Slayton has gone missing. You take it upon yourself to find him and to do so you'll have to look on the 6 cases Jack was working before he disappeared.

The interface consists of a myst-like environment where you click on pictures to use items, talk, move, etc. only this time (and to keep with the mood of the game) the images are high-quality black and white actual pictures (not rendered).

Gameplay consists mainly of interacting with people and gathering clues.
