    With its keen writing, dark theme, and wry humor, this is an easy win. Anyone who enjoyed the old LucasArts point-and-click games of old should definitely be keeping an eye on this one.

    This is a very rare gem of an indie game, a murder mystery adventure set during the dark reign of the Ripper. The story is surreal andThis is a very rare gem of an indie game, a murder mystery adventure set during the dark reign of the Ripper. The story is surreal and unforgiving (think Deadly Premonition and Blue Velvet), the soundtrack is epic (courtly Bach-inspired pieces intertwined with introverted Scott Walker-infused dirges) and the gameplay harks back to retro Lucasarts and Sierra games but with a clever spin on the classics. I would recommend this to all lovers of point and click games. Expand
