Dark Angel

by Jerry Ford profile


About the Story

The 2016 release---version 2.0---fixes numerous bugs and useability issues and enhances dialog and player interaction with non-player characters.


Dark Angel is a noir-ish, pulp fiction detective story set in the present time.

Harry, the player character in this 3rd-person, past-tense IF story, is a San Francisco private detective who gets caught up in a hunt for fabeled treasure which takes a personal turn when members of his family are drawn into the action.

To tell more here would spoil the mystery. Like the old movies and dime novels, a significant part of the fun lies in discovering what the quest is.

Suffice it to say, the intrigue leads Harry to Tijuana, Mexico, where he must break in to a drug lord's walled compound.
