BROK The InvestiGator is
point punch-and-click indie adventure game shrouded in 90s nostalgia. Punch your way to find clues that help solve investigations.
In a futuristic “light cyberpunk” world where animals have replaced humans, privileged citizens live under a protective dome from the ambient air pollution while others struggle to make a living on the outside.
Brok, a private detective and former boxer, lives with Graff, the son of his deceased wife. Although he could never elucidate her accident, recent events may shed some light on an even more tragic outcome… one that may be linked to their own existence.
A fun interactive adventure with plenty of mysteries to uncover. Lots of searching through nooks and crannies to uncover clues which ultimately lead to interrogations. During interrogations, you match two clues together to attempt to get to the truth of what characters are up to.
Very colourful game with plenty of interesting characters – it’s even got collectibles! the collectibles are in the form of Ads, which are small triangle-shaped posters that can be found in each location; three Ads can be found in each area. They aren’t always that obvious, so some will require an in-depth search.
The game is broken down into chapters, and there are six chapters in total – each chapter does last quite a while, especially if you’re also searching for ads. So be prepared to play this game for at least 10 hours, even before coming close to the platinum.
- Nostalgic feel
- Game is too long, IMO
- Could do with a hint system
Overall, a fun narrative-focussed adventure game with a deep 90s nostalgic feel. Anyone that enjoys narrative-based point and click games with fun puzzles – this one is for you.
