The Lone Detectivefree online detective game
1989 classic Amiga game - detective games
Venice is a beautiful place to be... unless you are a sleuth chasing after people, who threaten to blow up the city. Oh yeah, and there was murder committed, but no body of the victim was found yet. Police chief is not a great fan of the idea that amateur detective will be getting in his way, so you can only count on your instinct to solve the mystery.
Published by Infogrames in 1989 Murders in Venice mixes unusual elements - you are investigating a case, you have a notebook, where you can write down informations you have learned, you can take photos of the suspects, you can write down the details you have learned about them. All of it with Venice in the background, where you can travel between locations by scrolling the panorama of the city and clicking on the buildings to enter the apartment or office. And there is another interesting factor - you do it all in real time, so you have to be in specific time and specific place in order to meet the right person (similar to KGB adventure game years later).
