Mystery Woman Sleuth | Mystery Hard Boiled

Picture Salmon Bay: an isolated, run-down northern California village, home to an idle fleet of fishing boats, a deserted amusement park, and a handful of secretive, even hostile residents. When private investigator Sharon McCone arrives in search of one of the town's wayward daughters, the train leads to the thriving resort of Port San Marco. McCone believes that the missing woman, a former social worker named Jane Anthony, was involved in the suspicious deaths of three terminally ill patients at an exclusive hospice. But the elusive Jane Anthony turns up all too soon - washed up beneath a rotting pier in her Salmon Bay. McCone discovers that no one - not her client, a reclusive photographer, nor Jane's mother, nor her hospice employers - wants to find out why she died. Then the killer strikes again, Jane's secret life come into focus, and McCone finds that someone wants her out of the picture - permanently.

Re: Games to Keep the Dark Away

In any case, despite the " hydro-sandblaster " and pinched fingers,
Epistory - Typing Chronicles tightens with the head. This is by no
means a quick print simulator - it's really a stylish and exciting action-
adventure game, in which everything is interesting: explore the world,
learn magic, look for some secret places and chests, fight, solve
puzzles (sometimes very original), collect scraps of bonus pictures,
save experience, "pump" the heroine, watch the story. And learn the
words, about the existence of which you did not even suspect. The only
wish: do not play Epistory - Typing Chronicles after all day typed some
text on the keyboard!

Pros: unusual concept; interesting story; own style and atmosphere;
fascinating exploration of the world; a useful role-playing system; an
abundance of various puzzles; adaptive complexity. Cons: the game is
rather short; places management leaves much to be desired.
