Forgetful Sailor uses an interface which has more in common with a choice based gamebook than with interactive fiction, and is built for symplicity and ease of use. Select questions from the menue to ask your suspects, then head to other locations around Newport to continue your investigations, ---- hints from the Inspector helping you along the way. though the game is mostly text ouput directly to Jaws or window eyes, ---- or self-voicing via an in built game voice, it does feature an extensive amount of atmospheric sound effects and colourful video clips. What's more, sinse all games in the inspector cindy series share the same video hints collection, ---- the more games you have, the more videos you'll get.
the game costs tend ollars, but a demo is available allowing you to explore the crime scene for three days and get the feel for detective work. Also, though the link at the top of the page will download the windows version, a Mac version is available here as well.
Just remember to have the 7-128 gamebook in either it's full or demo state installed before you try this game.
