The year is 1914. Robert Cath, an American Doctor, becomes a fugitive from the law while in Ireland for a murder he did not commit. He flees to Paris, France, and at the invitation of an old friend, Tyler Whitney, arranges to board the famous Orient Express just days before World War I breaks out. Arriving late, boarding the train by jumping from a speeding motorcycle, he discovers Tyler brutally murdered in his compartment. As no one on board knows either of them, Cath assumes Tyler's identity and sets out to find the killer. What he discovers is that everyone on board has secrets that plunge him into a maelstrom of Treachery, Romance, and International Intrigue. Written by

Did You Know?
To create the "art nouveau" animation style effect the production team was looking for, all of the game's possible paths and actions (over 800 scenes) were filmed with 50 live actors wearing special makeup against a bluescreen. The footage was then input into a computer and, using a specially designed process, was processed and turned into black and white line drawings. From there, the footage was meticulously hand painted frame by frame (over 40,000 frames total) to create the final effect. See more
When Cath disconnects the two cars (while talking to August Schmidt), he uses a crowbar and drops it as the couplers release. In the next shot the crowbar is back in his hands. See more
Ladies and Gentlemen, your attention please. The Orient Express is now departing for Strassburg, Munich, Vienna, Budapest, Belgrade, Sofia, and Constantinople. All passengers should be on board.
As the end credits roll on the right side of the screen, on the left side is a map of Europe, which, over the course of the credits, shows the year-by-year progression of political borders from 1914 to 1994. See more
