Synopsis

Plot

Frederic Sheppard was found dead at the foot of the cliff behind his house about half an hour ago. The caller said it looked as though he fell from his study window. It's your job to investigate.

Chief Inspector Duffy drops you off at the scene of the crime. He says to treat it as a murder unless you can find anything to prove otherwise. He says he's heading back to HQ and he'll return in a couple of hours.

As Duffy drives off, you check your watch to see how late it is, only to find that your watch has stopped.

Notes

This was an entry in the 13th Annual Interactive Fiction Competition, where it was placed 2nd out of 27 entries. It was written by Christopher Huang under the pseudonym of 'Hugh Dunnett', which is itself a homonym of 'Who Done It?'.

The story is randomised each time it starts. Because of this, the author advises you to save the game before you even begin your investigation. The story proceeds at 15 seconds per turn and Chief Inspector Duffy will return at 2:00 a.m., so you should be ready to make an arrest by then.
