This is another massive interactive fiction title from Malinch entertainment, this time giving you the chance to step into the pages of a suspense drama in a fabulus location.

In the game you play the part of an everyday man who is involved in a serious tragedy. On a dream holiday in the historical russian city of St petersburg (formally Leningrad), outside the famous art museum your wife and daughter are dragged into a car at gunpoint and snatched off. As is always the way, a mysterious fellow in a fine sute says he'll explain everything in a nearby cafe, --- however being interactive fiction what you actually do is very much your choice, though bare in mind some choices might lead to your family's death.

What risks you take, what information you find out, and where the story ends all depend upon your detective skills and puzle solving ability, as your stuck alone, in the streets of a city where nobody speaks your language trying to find clues to this awful mystery.

Though unlike some of Malinche's other titles there is no demo of this game available, Malinche do have a 60 day money back guarantee offer, so should you decide this game isn't for you, you haven't lost anything, ---- which makes trying it out easier (though you do of course have to send Malinche the cash in the interim).

You may download the game as a stand alone program, ---- with or without self-voicing text to speech capability. This will create a folder and program short cuts for directly running the game, as well as installing either Winfrotz, see game page or Winfrotz tts see index page depending whether or not you install the tts self-voicing version of the program or not. If you already have either of these interpreters, you can also download the story file separately as well, and open it in your chosen version of Winfrotz the way you'd open any Z code game

As well as the game, you'll also get a copy of the pdf Malinche players guide, click here to read online Which is a great introduction to Interactive fiction in general, ---- and malinche's games in particular.
