Time has not been kind to our Earth. The world is comprised of six city-states, each governed by their own laws, but subject to the Supreme Federal Government. Now it is over-populated, riddled with disease, poverty, organized crime and a depleted environment.
In the futuristic city of Greece, life was good for Nick Delios. He was engaged to be married to a beautiful girl, and his career as a researcher and programmer in the highly competitive field of bio-electronic medical transplants was really taking off. Just when it looks like there's no where to go but up, everything goes haywire! Nick's boss, his fiance's brother, takes credit for his research, he is fired and the wedding is cancelled! Angry and depressed, he tries to drown his sorrows in booze, borrows some money and hits the gambling tables hoping for a break. His situation worsens when "Lady Luck" shows her ugly side and Nick has no choice but to accept "an offer he can't refuse". Things get more interesting when Thanos Pekas, Police Inspector and an old friend, asks him unofficially to help solve the murder case of a small time crook. But, of course, the case is not as simple as it sounds ...
You play Nick in first person perspective in a story that is mostly non-linear. Although the theme of the story is serious, the atmosphere is lightened by Nick's personality and sense of humor. Overall, the game has been compared to some of the later Tex Murphy games because of the science fiction mystery elements combined with sarcastic humor, full-motion video and live actors. Released initially for the PC on DVD-Rom only, it contains a standard point and click interface with inventory objects, conversations and a multitude of varied puzzles to be solved.
