Still Life

Victoria McPherson is a brilliant young FBI agent who’s investigating a serial murder case. 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. There’s nothing quite like a good mystery to set the tone for a graphical adventure game. It’s up to you to explore, interrogate, and solve puzzles with a huge array of items to pickup and  mysterious psychic undertones throughout the game.

You control Victoria from a third-person perspective as she walks and runs her way through different areas that are shown from preset camera angles (similar to the developer’s last title, Syberia). Still Life is clearly a game for mature players with colourful language and a large amount of gore. The game also features a large amount of technical, forensic stages that include brushes and plastic bags for the collection of samples and evidence to help advance her investigation. The forensic kit even includes a black-light filter and luminol (which reveals bloodstains) and realistic procedures must be used before you can take photos of the crime scene.
