Looks quite similar to the awesome Full Throttle - I played through its remaster a year or so back. I'll definitely take a look at this.

I found it quite different - but very good. It's way more to read. :)

It's nothing like Full Throttle, scaine.

In fact, it's a blatant rip-off of Gabriel Knight. Ill adjusted protagonist? Check. Rides motorcycle? Check. Foreign name in the family changed to English? Check. Parent mystery? Check. Grandma? Check. Grandma's attic? Check. Police station right at the start? Check. Divided into days? Check. I could go on.

I'm enjoying it, mind, but the similarities are mind-boggling. It starts off very linear, with a very limited number of locations that expands slowly as you do stuff, so that's different from GK. That one was quite overwhelming from the off.

I never played any GK games, so that won't bother me. Loved Broken Sword series though and I've mentioned Full Throttle, of course.
