A crime adventure game and the seminal first work by Hideo Kojima (now of Metal Gear fame) for the PC-88 and MSX2, inspired by the movie "Blade Runner". The game takes place in 2042, in Neo Kobe City, and the player takes the role of a detective solving the mysteries of the strange "Snatcher" kidnapping cases. The game involved not only multiple-choice à la adventure game style, but the search for keywords, puzzle solving and gun shooting.
The subsequent PS and Saturn editions were ports of the PC Engine edition from 1992.
Snatcher had a spirital sequel in the game "Policenauts".
