About the Story

He was the best detective you could hope to find on the shadowy streets of this forsaken moon, and now he's dead. You're just his secretary bot. You can type five hundred words a minute and look damn good doing it.

His prefab office is due for recycling at sunrise, and you along with it. Looks like there's no-one left to solve his murder.

Short CYOA document, great humour, March 26, 2023
by Denk
Related reviews: Text document

I had never heard about this game, perhaps because there is zero coding behind. It is an old fashioned CYOA "book" - simply a page with numbered paragraphs. You start at paragraph 1 where you get to choose what to do, which tells you the number of the next paragraph to read.

You play as a secretary bot with the task of investigating a murder. There are several endings despite the document is fairly short. Overall it works pretty well for several play throughs. What is most important is probably the humour which is silly in a good way. Quite entertaining and fun.
