A goofy German game about Perry Mason in a resort, August 21, 2019

This game is in German, and it's not just regular German, it's very joke-y German with many allusions and in-jokes. My German was not up to the task, and I only completed with google translate and the built-in walkthrough.

Still, I could see how funny this game was. It's presented as a TV show with intermittent ads and other such artifices. You start the game in a hot tub or something and have to find your clothes while investigating a murder at the resort. There are some entertaining characters and a few tricky puzzles. The game isn't quite as big as it seems at first, as many potential areas are closed off.

I enjoyed it, but I often enjoy games not in my native language, as it adds another layer to the gameplay.

Schnell, unterhaltsam und stimmungsvoll, May 20, 2012
by Marco Bakera (Dortmund, Germany)

Das Spiel um den Mordfall in einem Hotel spielt sich schnell und ohne große Komplikationen. Das eingebauter Hilfesystem hilft in den entscheidenden Momenten weiter und verhindert Frust.

Die Stimmung der Erzählung schwankt zwischen humorvoll und schaurig und weiß insbesondere durch eine Wendung zum Ende zu überzeugen. Den ein oder anderen NSC hätte ich mir noch gerne etwas ausgefeilter gewünscht. Besonders die Hauptcharaktere haben nur wenige Szenen, in denen sie sich entfalten können.

Ein besondere Note bekommt das Spiel durch eine reizvolle Mélange aus Erzählung und Fernsehsendung, die durch die Selbstreferenzialität der Geschichte noch eine, wenn auch nicht stark ausgeprägte, Metaebene, in der sich die Geschichte selbst kommentiert.

If you enjoyed P. Mason und der Schlitzerhans und die Busenkathi...
