DescriptionThe real murders by the renowned killer, Jack the Ripper, took place in London in the year 1888. As everyone knows, the cases have never been solved. What would happen if Jack left London and started his killing thirteen years later ... in New York City?
Similar to other Jack the Ripper stories, the main character is a reporter. You play James "Jimmy" Palmer, a newspaper man in New York, who is assigned to get the scoop on some strange and grotesque murders. Guide Jimmy around the dank and dirty "Low Side" of New York in the year 1901 - twelve years after Jack the Ripper's last known killing in London. Visit crime scenes, interview people who knew the victims in a brothel, a cabaret nightclub and alleyways. Get help from different types of people from various walks of life - bookies, prostitutes, street bums as well as the police, investigative agency professionals and Jimmy's co-workers.
This first person adventure game is completely mouse controlled and features an in-game map for navigating between locations, 360° views, 3D graphics, and ambient background effects. Exploration, interaction with other characters, solving various types of puzzles, and finding/using inventory objects are all part of the gameplay.
