DescriptionYou play Matt Stuvysant, a man of Polish descent and criminal persuasion. You arrive in London with nothing but the clothes on your back and a desire to become the greatest criminal mind this century. Once getting a room and meeting some accomplices, you must begin your career. Starting with small shops and gradually working your way up to the theft of the Crown Jewels.
The game allows you to control almost every aspect of the crime, from choosing the target building and accomplices to actually planning the burglary itself.

Freeware releaseThe original German version of the game, called Der Clou!, can be downloaded for free from developer Neo's company website. The add-on Profidisk is also available. Be warned, however, as it's rather difficult to get the DOS-only game to run on modern machines. Detailed instructions on this topic can be found on the website, too.
In addition to having been released into the public domain, The Clue! has also become open source. The complete source code can be found on the company website and on the project's SourceForge page.
