Description

Set in 1932, you play private investigator Alan P. Cameron, who leaves his home town of Chicago to solve a haunting mystery above the waters of Loch Ness. Devil's Ridge Manor is haunted by an increasing number of ghosts, and at the request of its owner, Allister Mac Farley, it is up to you to find out what really is going on.

Combining an investigation and murder mystery scenario (aka the Tex Murphy series) with a presentation similar in ways to the Myst games, The Cameron Files also includes an original musical score and uses motion capture technology to create further realism in the computer generated characters.
