Storyline

Third game based on Terry Pratchett's Discworld series. On a dark and stormy night in the city of Ankh-Morpork, the first and only private investigator on the Discworld, Lewton (you), is called in by a mysterious lady to find a man who arrived on a ship that night. Your investigations lead that the man was carrying a very important item and that the lady is from one of the richest families on the Discworld. Things take a more hair-raising turn when thanks to your investigations and the characters you meet causes you to be turned into a werewolf. What's the connection between the item and your other case - a search for a troll's girlfriend? And can the item itself actually open up a gateway to the Dungeon Dimensions and could, if misused, could destroy the Discworld??... Written by Lee Horton <Leeh@tcp.co.uk>

Trivia

In Rhodan's workshop there are some sculptures made by staff at Perfect Entertainment, including the bust of Rhodan himself, an Elven Queen from the 2nd Discworld Game, and a single large Pythonesque foot. Most obscurely there is a statue of postal pioneer Thomas Fletcher Waghorn which replicates the real world statue that stands in Chatham, Kent, hometown of one of the artists on the project. When Malachite is first encountered here, he is sitting in the position of Rodin's 'The Thinker' something that was difficult to carry off considering Malachites ungainly body structure and his unfeasibly long forearms.

Technically lousy.
28 March 2005 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This game has some pretty serious technical flaws. The character animations are simple loops, which often don't loop smoothly. The frame rate is low in all the animations except Lewton's, and the characters have a tendency to snap back to their static frame when they're not talking. But I like it.

The game's plot transcends all these technical flaws to make for quite a pleasant experience, with definite addiction factor ;) The film noir style is great, and works surprisingly well with the Ankh Morpork atmosphere.

Some fiendish puzzles, the odd bit of screen sweeping, and a very neat twist at the end. Recommended for Discworld fans. Others might find it just a little too tedious.
