Did You Know?


George Stobbart: Look Sergeant, the Inspector gave me his card.
Moue: Yes, m'sieur. He wants you to advise him if you have any information concerning this case.
George Stobbart: Well, I'd be glad to talk with him, but I don't want him working his psycho-weirdness on me.
Moue: Ah! Non, monsieur, you are confusing the science of parapsychology with witchcraft.
George Stobbart: Oh yeah? What's the difference?
Moue: We don't do sacrifices.

Best adventure game I ever played!
3 January 2002 | by aad_baldieSee all my reviews

This Adventure game is about an american on vacation in Paris. Sitting on the pavement outside a cafe he is drinking coffee when suddenly a clown walks in and blows the cafe away. The game isn't too hard to play but also not too easy. The story features many unique plots and there are a lot of jokes too. The atmosphere is almost perfect!
