You start the adventure by choosing your character’s gender, his characteristics, and how much money to start out with - even the type of pet! This is a "point-and-click" adventure game. All the selections you make in the beginning of the game have an impact on how the game is played out from start to finish.
You are young, you’re looking for a job, and you have always dreamed of becoming a Private Investigator. You were born in a small town in California called Gillibel, and as a Private Investigator wanna-be, your hope is to get hired by one of the many investigative agencies in California, possibly in San Francisco. In the beginning, things don’t go exactly as planned. Your local employment office in Gillibel doesn’t seem very interested in helping you - But, just when you’ve almost lost your hope, you unexpectedly get lucky! The very famous investigative agency "Copper & McIntosh" in San Francisco is looking for a new PI to hire. A once in a lifetime opportunity - not to be missed!
The game contains mystery, magic and humor along with puzzle-solving. The static, hand-drawn graphics appear in a slide-show fashion, but react to what you do in the game.
