Another good game to add to my noir list!

At first, I thought the game was a little too simple and a little oddball, but then as the story unfolded - I was hooked!
The story opens with a woman named Petra, discharged from the army and becomes a detective to solve crime and hopes to one day find her missing brother.
There aren't any puzzles in this game, it's purely story driven - you'll find yourself going back and forth to converse with various characters to gather information, collect magical items and evidence to further the plot.
What I really loved about the game was all the side characters and their storylines, it added more depth to the overall plot and really gave me an idea of what the game's 'culture' and time period is like. And, if you pay close attention, you might even recognize some of the themes that are borrowed from the film noir genre and the history during WWII.

I beat the game in roughly seven hours, and it may seem like a short time to beat it, but it felt like I had played it a lot longer than that. It's a really good balance for a point-and-click.

I don't really have any complaints; it's a good game and the story ties up nicely at the end.
