Blade Hunter’ secret diary, part 1: I’ve (once again) screwed things up with Karyn. I think it’s best if I lay low for a few days in my apartment.
|Just look at these pictures! Don’t you feel you are reading a good comic book?|
I’ve not yet played the game much, but merely toyed with the interface a bit. What little I’ve seen of the plot seems promising. We already know that there's something fishy going on in the pleasure domes, where mayor's daughter was killed. The introduction shows a young woman purchasing some illegal substance, which instead of giving her good time disfigures her body - a similar story was told in the comic book that came with the game. We also see two sinister figures, straight out of a Sax Rohmer novel, discussing a mysterious plot, by which the city will be brought to its knees in three days, some prophecy will be fulfilled and everyone will learn to fear the name of Bahumat again - typical bad guy chitchat.
|The main villain and a henchman, I presume?|
|A bigger person wouldn’t even fit here|
|Is that under the camera an old-fashioned rotary dial?|
|Do I see a beginning of a beautiful friendship?|
Getting away from the computer, I start to investigate Blade’s apartment. Left-click operates objects, right-click gives a description of them - seems simple enough. After a little bit of investigation, I’ve found Blade’s clothes, his trench coat and a gun, which Blade keeps under his pillow. There’s also a small cabinet over a sink, but I don’t have the keys for opening it.
|So convenient that kitchen, bedroom and home office are in the same room|
I also check my inventory for the first time. The inventory is seen by left-clicking the picture on the corner. Right-clicking the picture opens also the inventory, but in addition a picture of Blade, who is currently wearing only some underwear. If I want to make him wear something else, I have to drag the clothes on him in this screen.
|Boy have you been training!|
|Improvement on old pepper sprays|
|You call walking in underwear indecent? |
Wait till you see my lawyer, Mr. McCormick - he is a dedicated naturist!
|And soon the city was full of mutants and those, who preferred whisky over water. |
The latter noticed no difference, since they were used to seeing weird creatures.
