All codes gone again :-(

How's the game? Is this like a choose your own adventure book?
I love detective stories and the graphics have a cool retro vibe :-).

This looks like an old Commodore 64 game. I love the retro stuff & also glad adventure style games seem to be coming back.

Any first impressions yet? I'm very curious about this game from the looks of it, but I have no idea what kind of game it actually is... Is it like an interactive book or more something like Clue?

Codes normally don't last long at all, most of them are snagged up right away by lurkers!

I'm going to buy it now and support the developer.

EDIT: I bought this game and it's really interesting. I'd recommend it to anyone who loves mystery's.
