About the Story

In this text adventure you play as Dirk Justice, a grizzled detective on the edge who’s about to have a very bad day. This game has some graphic descriptions of violence, and some language as well as drug and alcohol references and as such is recommended for mature players.

All of the controls are explained in the in-game help function.

This game was made using the TADS development system and the game file includes a windows executable file containing the full game, so players on Microsoft-compatible machines can play without needing to download an interpreter. For non-Windows machines, there is also a .gam file in the zipped folder and you can download an interpreter to play the game.
