Про цю гру

The World Union is labeled the 'perfect society'. Prosperity is a science, disease and wars have vanished, sex is entertainment, and the future has never looked brighter. Suddenly this perfect society is rocked by the murder of a World Union citizen in the 'Rogue State' of Russia. His murder oddly coincides with the accidental death of a prominent professor in Adrianopolis, an important border town between the World Union and Russia. This career making case is assigned to a young woman, Phoenix Wallis who as the Senior Peace and Security staff officer has been assigned to lead the murder investigation. Her search for the truth leads to enigmatic clues, and deepening mysteries that challenge not only her case, but her very belief in the world she has sworn to protect.

"The best adventure since Blade Runner for me." Gotta agree with this guy. This game is amazing. Great story (based on a book, if I recall correctly), nice characters, interesting puzzles, multiple endings (based on our choices). World Union (where the game takes place) reminds me a lot of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World.

As for the graphics, for a game that old I don't even think they're bad. Just a warning: see those black bars on the screenshots? Game doesn't run in widescreen. But the story is so amazing that, believe me, you won't even remember that after playing it for 30 minutes

If you're a fan of adventure games and a good, solid sci-fi story, give this game a chance. I don't think you'll regret it

For those wondering about those merely 4.4 hour of gameplay on my profile, Steam version is cut (it lacks a few sex scenes, like Fahrenheit), so I grabbed the full version elsewhere, and that's the one I've been playing

Get the uncut version on Adventure Gamers instead. Steam should tell people before they buy if their games are censored.

Oldie but a goodie. I agree with some of the negative reviews, but over all the game is playable and entertaining for it's age. Ten dollars is a bit much for such an old version tho and there was supposed to be a sequel for this one that never got out. Prey suffered the same fate I guess. I give it a thumbs up for GP and I, personally, like the game and will play it again, eventhough I've ran through it quite a few times.

This is a great first part of what should have been a series.

Culpa Innata is set in the near future in a society that most of us would find very alien. The main character is an officer given the task of investigating a murder which is an event so rare in this world that everyone doen't really know how to start.

The best thing about this game is the detail of the setting. 'The World Union' where the main character lives and works is a society different to any of our own. In the game you not only carry out your investigation but interact with friends and colleagues to get a proper feel of what being in such a society might be like. There's also a lot of reference to the countries not absorbed by this society and how things are different. The writers have done an excellent job of giving a richly detailed picture of this world.

The main negative point of this game is that it is part 1 of 2 but part 2 never got produced. The principal aim of the game (ie solve the murder) is resolved nicely but so many more interesting questions appear on the way but never get answered. Very frustrating.

Other important points:

Gameplay: The game is highly non-linear. There are day cycles and you can only fit a certain number of things into each day but other than that the choice is very free. This makes the game DIFFICULT, particularly if you can't find a trigger for an event.

Puzzles: A nice balance of dialogue/persuasion, logic puzzles and inventory use.

Visuals: The 3D environments are well rendered but nothing very special.

Voice Acting: Very good on the whole with a few terrible accents.

Music: A futuristic dystopian nightmare. I turned it down when I could.

This is really a very unique adventure game, I play adventure games since the 80's and i am very amazed with this one. The game is full of realistic dialogs and interesting characters. I am guessing over 15 hours of dialogs are in the game. Only downside is, the graphics are a bit low quality and pathing is confusing. I wish a sequel is made.

I strongly advice this game to adventure gamers.

The best adventure since Blade Runner for me. You do not use your mouse to check every pixel for that one thing you miss. Instead you have to decide how to talk to people, what to mention, what to hide, how to proceed.
You don't have to find *the* right solution. You find *your* solution.
I got hooked by this one.

Open-ended detective drama about a libertarian dystopia. Some of the puzzles are awful, but it's one of the most unique adventure games you'll ever find.

This is a pretty good futuristic adventure game. While I did play it with a general walkthrough you could definitely finish it without one. The thing I liked most about it is that unlike the old-school adventure games (King's Quest, Space Quest, etc.) you can't really bork your game by not picking something up that you will need 5 hours later. Definitely one that I would recommend to adventure fans, and depending on your patience, a pretty good one for others as well.

At first glance it is just an ugly adventure game from some unknown Turkish developer. So why is it in my recomendation? Because of that world, which is presented. This isn't game for kids. In fact, it's really grim game full of politics and distopian visions and if you give it a chance, it can definitely surprise you...

Great adventure game. Perfect storyline and characters. Graphics are a bit outdated but if you're really an adventure game fan, you probably would not care for that.

One of my All-Time favorite adventure/puzzle type games. You play as World-Union Peace Officer Phoenix Wallis. It's a classic point-click adventure with plenty of puzzles to solve, but it does not stop there: The game also offers fantastic details and graphic animation for all it's many characters throughout the game. There is a lot of dialog between everyone and they all have stories to share about life in the world union as well as facts relating to your murder mystery. Some point-click adventurs are little more than just a set of puzzles, with very little actual interaction with characters and the world: This game is different! Not only will it test you with puzzles: but you'll get to have quite a large number of conversations with everyone you meet.

Over all this is a VERY good game and well worth the price.

Despite the so-so graphics, it's one of the most interesting adventure game offerings of the past decade. Also, Culpa Innata manages to weave an authentic sci-fi story (and world) - no fluff.

Great story background but with a very slow and unsatisfying progression. Amazingly long dialogues, most of them useless, minor gameplay issues and technically way below average.

After finishing my first playthrough, I wanted more! Would've definitely played the sequel if there was one (for real, what a bummer it was to find out the follow up just died in production).

The game has many good points, as long as your expectations are reasonable. The setting and story might seem a little lack-luster, but that's only because it was supposed to be something of a introduction into this world. Still, the plot is juicy enough to keep you invested, and the characters within quite enjoyable. Sometimes you want to interact "incorrectly" with them just to hear what they say next.

Another plus for me was the difficulty level of the puzzles. Some of them were quite tricky, and I admit to looking up a few pointers online, but not frustrating enough to make me stop playing. There was a genuine sense of satisfaction that I got when figuring things out that triggers even more interesting facts and possible scenarios in the game. Being a detective in this quirky but cool Sci-Fi world is actually fun! Who knew?

TLDR is assigned to the right mouse button. Use it carefully - it is OP.

PS. Game is above average point and click quest.
