The Dead Case

A town full of death.
A haunted town, these days. Literally.

You are one of the victims, a ghost that can't remember his own name. Can you solve the mystery of your own death, and those in the town around you?
FAQ: http://www.sonic.net/krewine/deadfaq.htm
Game includes: *HELP* Function, Inventory system, interactive characters, painted backgrounds, extensive plot, Passwords (so that you can have a break to eat cheetos), sly commentary, and more.
It is a large game, the size reflects the content. It is NOT a simple action game, or spoof, or parody, but an extended mystery to be solved. There is also a difficult version, this one includes helpers and a better map. This also includes the new ability to use the arrow keys for movement, as requested by the reviewers!

This game should definitely have a sequel. It has established rules around ghosts, it could easily work with a different story too.

god, i remember finding this game as a kid but never finishing it better late than never lol

Managed to beat this without a walkthrough on Flashpoint. Great game! I really like the story and the whole thing just made me nostalgic.

One of the classics. Excellent writing, great pacing, just some minor problems with finding the next step to do, but once I knew I could always go check in the library, the story progressed efortlessly for me.

Ruffle will not play this?
