Official description
Victoria McPherson is a brilliant young FBI agent who's investigating a serial-murder case in Chicago. The body count is now at five and she has no real leads, nothing but a mountain of circumstantial evidence and a boss who's breathing down her neck. In order to take a break from it all, she decides to visit her father in the suburbs. Their discussions involve family stories which include Victoria's grandfather, who used to be a private investigator. This leads Victoria to read one of her grandfather's old case files, a file which reveals an uncomfortably high number of similarities between a 75-year-old case in Europe and the current string of killings in Chicago... Take a deep breath and enter Still Life. Features:
* Compelling scenario set in modern Chicago and late 1920's Prague, this 3rd-person perspective, investigative, puzzle-driven adventure introduces logical problem solving mixed with a complex and highly involving storyline to completely immerse the player.
* Play as two characters: Gustav (Gus) McPherson, returns from ‘Post Mortem' in lengthy flashback gameplay sequences triggered by his granddaughter, Victoria MacPherson, reading his diary of his time spent in Prague. Gus was a private detective turned painter, and Victoria is an investigative police detective. Her current serial-murder case is tied in a twisted and incredible plot to the Prague case that Gus solved too many years before.
* Opportunity to investigate the crime scenes of gruesome serial homicides and to solve challenging puzzles finely integrated into the storyline.
* Beautifully detailed environments, deep and intriguing characters.
* Breath-taking cinematics reward the player throughout the experience of playing Still Life
* Numerous interesting NPCs to interact with, which triggers story elements.
