DescriptionSFPD Homicide / Case File: The Body in the Bay is a point-and-click adventure game based mostly on FMV and photo graphics, with the player taking up the role of a San Francisco Police Department detective tasked with clearing up a series of murders. The character is San Francisco's newest homicide detective and teams up with a real investigator who acts as a partner and a guide. The case starts with a 50-something white male found floating in the bay near Pier 91, bound and gagged. The player's tasks encompass examining crime scenes and securing evidence as well as interrogating witnesses and suspects to uncover the identity of the serial killer. Using evidence, clues and procedures from the actual case, the detective explores the victim's life, vices and secret passions. Along the way, more than 40 characters from his life are met as the case takes the detective from the city's posh nightclubs to its deserted piers.
