Bad news everybody!Okay so this\'ll be short, but in all likelihood, I am going to be shutting this page down. It\'s expensive (very), and I do not think it\'s needed anymore given the success of GOG.com, Abandonia, and a few others. I simply don\'thave the time to keep it up and running, nor can do I have the time to make it the kickass community that I think it needs to be. I tried to ping abandonia about taking it over, but I never got a response. if anyone else has any alternative ideas, drop me a line at admin at hotud.org and we can figure something out.

This sequel to Murder in Venice takes you away from the picturesque city and into the cramped confines of a space station. The interface is simplified from the first game: left mouse button is used for most things, which is easy to use but also limits the puzzles to non-inventory related (e.g. interview people, collect evidence find combinations to safes, etc.). Despite this downside, the game is no less challenging than its predecessor, since you must still decide on what to photograph, and separate red herrings from real leads. Graphics are also upgraded to more attractive VGA, with a lot of neat scientific gadgets and instruments to find and use. Overall, a worthy sequel, despite sporting a more mundane plot and remnants of bad writing (or lack thereof) from the first game.
