Description

Polis 2 is the sequel to the Swedish crime-solving game Polis. You play as a leader of the murder investigation unit of the Swedish police force and the task is to solve a murder starting of with the finding of a dismembered arm in a lake.

The interface consists of a geographical map, a board of all the involved characters and their relations, the archive where the player can read through all generated reports and the so called Murder Puzzle where the player can see how well the investigation goes. The progress is shown with three lamps, each for four different pieces of the puzzle indicating how much evidence have been collected in the following important areas; the place - where the body was found, the act - how and where the murder took place, the death which indicate how much is known about the murder weapon(-s) and finally the murderer - where the player can select different people to test their theories.

The gameplay consists of equal parts resource management, i.e. select a team for each day and giving the team members tasks, and equal parts interrogation where the answers play out in video with real life actors.

At some points in the story, the player can feed the media with snippets of information which can result in new information from the public. These parts of the game plays out as a inverted interrogation scene where the case is highlighted by the Swedish TV-show Efterlyst (a Swedish TV programme similar to America's Most Wanted) and where the show's host asks the player questions about the case.
