Shady business takes place in this Libertynet IRC channel, and it's your job as an investigative reporter to get to the bottom of it.

This was definetly an awesome game. enjoyed the storyline and everything. although i do agree with Octoraffe on how it does lack much of a story

Please make another one.

I love the premise of this. Sitting in the dark, doing dangerous and illegal things all for a story. It's the typical "journalist takes himself too seriously" story. However, I found it lacking in detail. I think you should make a sequel that continues the story, making it longer and more elaborate. Mixing the "chat" setting with the typical point'n'click, explore-your-surroundings kind of game would make this a really immersive experience.

I only played once, and I'll try not to spoil it for new players, but I got a pretty decent ending. This game has very little replay appeal.

However, to the creator and to players reading the comments, this game IS WORTH PLAYING. It's a very creative experience.. I really did feel like I was sneaking around where I shouldn't be on the Internet. Lost a star and a half for no replay value and short play time. Thanks for this!

is that it?

WAAAY too short to be good. I was really getting in to it, then it ended. I played twice more, got two different endings, and had a lot more questions. Who was Tebi? What happened to Carr0t (not in the Darkil ending)? Why was iFire there at all except to give you the info on car0t? Why did he even give you the info on car0t? A sequel would not go unnoticed, maybe from someone else's point of view? I would give more stars, but the game kind of just drops off without any real ending.
