Lost LambEdit

Client: Daisy Duffing

Reward: $ 10

Your very first case which teaches you how to gather Clues. This is the only case without a file as it happens before you acquire a file cabinet.

SolutionEdit

Detective: So this is my office... Not exactly cosy, but teeming with potential.

Detective: Let's take a look around.

Daisy Duffing: Uhm... Hello, mister. I have a job for you. My cat is missing!

Detective: I don't play detective, you know. I charge per day, plus expenses.

Daisy Duffing: But I only found the cat yesterday and now it's gone. You are my only hope!

Daisy Duffing: And you know, my dad is an attorney,. I could tell him to hire you sometime, with you being so nice and not taking lots of money from little girls...

Daisy Duffing: And you know, my dad is an attorney,. I could tell him to hire you sometime, with you being such a nice lady.

Detective: Ok... I'll take the case, kiddo.

Daisy Duffing: Thank you! If you find Mr. Clawball, I'll split my lunch money with you.

Detective: Not exactly the breakthrough case I was waiting for, but Rome wasn't built in one day.

WitnessesEdit

Detective: Detective work is all about gathering clues; that means walking, talking, and looking around.

Detective: Then you use the clues to talk to witnesses. If you ask the right questions, you will get the right answers.

Detective: And you need the answers to solve the case.

  • 20 footprints
  • 10 questions
  • 10 magnifiers

Detective: The witnesses have talked about dead mice, claw marks and furballs, and here is the cat.

Detective: I've got your cat, little girl. Could you please get it off my leg?

Detective: I've got Mr Clawball, Daisy. I nust say I admire your taste in cats.

Daisy Duffing: Oh thank you! You're the best detective ever!

FinaleEdit

Detective: Oh, welcome back, Daisy. Did Clawball do something bad again?

Daisy Duffing: No, I think he learned his lesson. But you forgot about something important!

Detective: Yeah? Like what?

Daisy Duffing: Like your pay! Here, half of my lunch money, just like I promised you.

Detective: Well, a deal is a deal. I'll always remember you as my first true client. Farewell, young lady!

Detective: Oh, welcome back, Daisy. Is everything fine with Clawball?

Daisy Duffing: He's fine, thank you. But I think you forgot about something important!

Detective: Oh, did I?

Daisy Duffing: You did forgot your pay! Here, half of my lunch money, just like I promised you.

Detective: You are a honorable girl, you know that? I'll always remember that. Good luck with your cat!

Fleeing FelineEdit

Client: Patience De Monde

Reward: $ 200

A rich widow has a problem to solve.

"It turned out to be another lost cat case, but this time the pay was much better."

SolutionEdit

Patience De Monde: Excuse me, you're a detective, right? I. uhm... expected more of a... presentable workspace. What kind of investigations do you carry out?

Detective: Mostly feline disappearances, recently.

Patience De Monde: Oh, that's splendid! Coming to you was a good idea. My cat, Mittens, is missing. Normally, he'd be back home after a gew days when he got hungry. But it's been a week now!

Detective: Well, I've gained some experience with cats lately, so I'll probably be able to find Mittens in no time.

Detective: And maybe this time my pay will be a bit bigger than a little girl's pocket money.

WitnessesEdit

Detective: OK, this should be simple. I just need to do the same things as before-walk, gather clues, and talk with the witnesses. The cat's probably nearby.

  • 5 questions
  • 5 footprints
  • 5 magnifiers

Detective: Here I am, looking for a cat again. Even the answers I get are similar.. And that gives me an idea, where the cat might be.

  • 10 footprints
  • 10 questions
  • 10 magnifiers

Detective: There is more to this case than simple similarities. It's almost like I'm looking for the same cat again...

Detective: If my assumptions are correct, I need to make a phone call.

Detective: Daisy, can you tell me when exactly did you find Mr. Clawball?

Daisy Duffing: Oh, sure. About a week ago. He was so tired and starved that he had been lying on a hot, tin windowsill for hours. So I took him home!

Detective: I think that's actually what most of those fuzzballs do all the time. All right, I think I know everything. Thanks, Daisy!

Detective: That's sweet Daisy, but I'm afraid that behavior is normal for cats.

Detective: Mr. Clawball is probably a couple of pounds heavier from all that food and love, but he's definitely Mittens. I need to tell Ms. de Monde about this.

FinaleEdit

Detective: I found him, madam. It appears he was already adopted by a girl from the neighborhood, Daisy Duffing. He didn't return because... well... he was well fed.

Patience De Monde: The lawyer's daughter got my cat? Oh, I'll better let her keep him. He'll be in good hands.

Patience De Monde: And I must congratulate you on your detective's work! Finding all that information connecting the cat with Daisy must've been hard!

Detective: It was nothing, really.

Patience De Monde: Don't be so humble! The neighborhood could use a bright P.I. such as yourself! You need to put more effort in decorating your office, though.

Patience De Monde: Here, a check. It'll help you set up your office properly. And I'll recommend you to my friends so you can get more cases!

Important InformantEdit

Transcript before starting the caseEdit

Paul Litzer: I'm Paul Litzer from the Daily News. Patience de Monde recommended you and I need a P.I.

Detective: I'll be happy to help. What exactly bothers you?

Client: Paul Litzer

Reward: $ 50

A journalist wants to find an informant working for him.

"My first major case started when a famous journalist asked me to find his informant before something bad happened to them."

SolutionEdit

Paul Litzer: I need to find one of my anonymous informants.

Detective: Doesn't the informant want to stay anonymous?

Paul Litzer: Probably, and I don't even know what they look like. But I heard that some gloomy men in sunglasses and dark suits were asking around for them.

Detective: That sounds like serious trouble. What were you working on, exactly?

Paul Litzer: An article about mayor Covet's sugar ban and it's impact on the city. My informant must have asked one question too many. Find them before it's too late!

WitnessesEdit

Detective: Wow, my first big case! I'll need to interview witnesses and find Mr. Litzer's informant.

Detective: If I collect enough clues in one go, I'll get the evidence that I need to solve the case: collecting questions will get me photos of the suspect.

  • 10 questions
  • 2 photos
  • 20 questions
  • 4 photos

When you finish the witnesses for the first time:

Detective: Wow, a government cady transport! Let's keep an eye on it, in case something fell off the truck. Detective: I got word of a couple of Daily News' consultants. I hope I'll manage to identify the informant before it's too late!

Suspect identification: Confronting the ConsultantsEdit

Detective: I need to identify the informant, using the right questions about the features of the target suspect.

Detective: Are they male or female? Tall or short? Do they have a big mouth, small nose? So many questions to ask!

Solution: Maud Beans

If you fail:

Detective: That informant is pretty good at hiding from unwanted attention. I hope those gloomy guys will have even less luck than I did.

If you win:

Detective: Excuse me, Miss! Some men in dark suits were looking for you!

Maud Beans: Oh yes, thank you. They already found me.

Detective: They... they did?

Maud Beans: Oh yes! The Metropolitan Insurance Agency wants to hire me as an analyst. I'm sorry, I should've told Mr. Litzer about the new job. I'll call him right away.

FinaleEdit

If you fail:

Paul Litzer: Did you manage to find the informant? I pulled all my strings but still can'tget a hold of them.

Detective: No luck here, either. Bit don't worry. If something bad happened to them, we'd probably know.

If you win:

Detective: Hello. You're one of Litzer's employees, right?

Pola Chapelle: I am now! Since miss Beans resigned, Mr. Litzer decided to hire a permanent employee in her place. The name is Chapelle. Pola Chapelle.

Pola Chapelle: Mr. Litzer sent me to hand in your reward, but I guess I owe you something more than that for getting me my dream job.

Detective: I could use some media buzz, an interview maybe?

Pola Chapelle: Would love to, but all I can do now is to arrange a subscription for you. In the ads section you'll find a lot of new cases.

Detective: Solve minor cases to get major ones? Sounds like a plan.

Pola Chapelle: Great! If you stumble upon an earthshaking affair, will you keep me in the loop, darling?

Detective: Sure thing, Pola.

Detective: I could use some media buzz.

Pola Chapelle: You have to earn it first. But I can arrange a subscription for you. In the ads section you'll find a lot of new cases.

Detective: Solve minor cases to get major ones? Sounds like a plan.

Pola Chapelle: Great! If you stumble upon an earthshaking affair, will you keep me in the loop, darling?

Detective: I'll think about it, miss Chapelle.

Police ProvisionsEdit

Required: 1 Newspaper

Client: Lucy Gordon

Reward: $ 50

A police officer has a job for you.

"My first job for the police was not what I expected. Officer Lucy Gordon asked me to find a certain donut shop."

Detective: Hello, officer. One look at you and I want to join the force! What brings you to my office?

Lucy Gordon: We always welcome new volunteers, detective. But today I need your help with a small matter of a private nature.

Lucy Gordon: I want to find a donut shop. They apparently sell the best confectionery in town. I... have my reasons to find the place.

Detective: Sure, we all have our reasons to get our hands on something sweet. I'll find the shop for you.

Detective: Hello, officer. Good to see another woman in the uniform. What brings you to my office?

Lucy Gordon: I have a private matter to resolve and I need help from someone in your profession.

Lucy Gordon: I want to find a donut shop. They apparently sell the best confectionery in town. I... have my reasons to find the place.

Detective: Sure. Us girls need to stick together. I'll find it for you.

WitnessesEdit

Detective: I wonder why Lucy won't look for the shop herself? Well, I won't miss my chance. Let's get to work.

Detective: I wonder why Lucy won't look for the shop herself? Maybe she'll tell me later. Let's get to work.

  • 5 footprints
  • 1 map
  • 15 questions
  • 3 photos
  • 10 footprints
  • 2 maps

If you fail:

Detective: Oh no, an undercover cop!

Kevin McGee: Stop snooping around, gumshoe, or you'll end up in jail. Candy is police business.

Detective: Understood, officer. On my way home.

If you win:

Detective: It appears only police officers are eating donuts these days. Then why Lucy just won't ask one of her cop buddies?

Suspect identification: Friendly Police OfficerEdit

Detective: All right, I just need to find someone who knows something about the donuts.

Screenshot 2014-07-02-14-45-23

Solution: James Valentino

If you fail:

Detective: Huh. Maybe I should've tried the guy in the police uniform after all...

If you win:

Detective: Excuse me, could you help me find a donut shop somewhere in the neighbourhood?

James Valentino: Whoa, boy! Haven't you heard about the sugar ban? Donuts are only rationed to police officers!

Detective: I'm a... plainclothes officer?

James Valentino: Look, boy. I'm the police commissioner. I know every cop in the city. We'd never hire a cop who's only interested in getting his donut ration. Now scram!

James Valentino: Whoa, girl! Haven't you heard about the sugar ban? Donuts are only rationed to police officers!

Detective: I'm a... plainclothes officer?

James Valentino: Look, girl. I'm the police commissioner. I know every cop in the city. We'd never hire a cop who's only interested in getting his donut ration. Now scram!

Detective: Great, I just had to stumble upon the commissioner. But at least now I know why Lucy doesn't want other police officers to know that she's fond of candy!

City search: Following the Trail of CrumbsEdit

Detective: Time for plan B. No one wants to tell me where the donut shop is, so I'll need to find the place by myself.

Detective: Luckily, I have a few hints where the shop is. I need to compare them with each other: the correct location should match all three hints.

The donut shop is:

  • in the distance of 1 from water
  • more than 3 from police stations
  • exactly 1 from a post office

Solution: (6,6)

If you fail:

Detective: Ugh, I feel like I lost a few punds from all the walking. Those donut shops are well hidden these days.

If you win:

Detective: A coffee shop also selling donuts to honest police officers. I wonder if they serve P.I.s?

FinaleEdit

If you fail:

Detective: I haven't found it, it might have closed down. Maybe the authorities found some illegal sweets.

Lucy Gordon: How... unfortunate. I'll make do without that shop. And you... keep your cute face out of trouble, ok?

If you win:

Detective: I've found the shop. How about you'll grab a coat and I'll take you to that place? The treat is on me!

Lucy Gordon: No can do, it's for police officers only. Just give me the address, and I'll pay you. Anything else?

Detective: Well, you could give me your phone number.

Lucy Gordon: Well, all right. If you ever get stuck in a case, just call me. You could use my expertise.

Detective: I must say the donuts sure look tasty. With vanilla icing, and sprinkles...

Lucy Gordon: That sounds so delicious! I need to confide something to you. I have a bit of a... sweet tooth. But I don't want to lose my job because of it!

Detective: Sure, I understand. I won't tell anyone.

Lucy Gordon: Thank you! If you ever get stuck in a case, just call me. My police expertise may prove useful.

Angry AuntEdit

Required: 1 Newspaper

Client: John Bravucci

Reward: $ 50

A famous actor has a problem with his aunt.

"John Bravucci, the famous actor, called my office. He got a painting from his aunt, and he lost it somewhere. He wanted me to find it, ASAP."

SolutionEdit

John Bravucci: Detective! My aunt, she's a problem. I need her...

Detective: I don't handle dirty work. It's not a movie Mr. Bravucci.

John Bravucci: No, no! I need her painting, "The Honeysuckles"! She gave it to me as a gift.

John Bravucci: Now she's coming to visit, and I can't remember where I had hidden it! Find it before I pick her up from the airport, and I'll make it worth your while.

Detective: He hung up on me! I could use the money, but how am I going to solve the case without any information?

John Bravucci: I never expected such a soft voice from such a renowned detective.

Detective: I hope it's not one of those "stolen heart" pickup lines from your movies? I run a serious business here.

John Bravucci: Ha ha! No, I'm serious. I need to find my aunt's painting, "The Honeysuckles". She gave it to me as a gift.

John Bravucci: Now she's coming to visit, and I can't remember where I had hidden it! Find it before I pick her up from the airport, and I'll make it worth your while.

Detective: What an intriguing man... I'd love to solve the case, but I need more information than that!

WitnessesEdit

Detective: Maybe someone knows something about Bravucci and his painting.

  • 5 lockpicks
  • 10 magnifiers
  • 2 fingerprints
  • 10 footprints
  • 2 maps

If you fail:

Detective: Nobody has seen the painting - and they seem happy that way. How strange!

If you win:

Detective: Wow. Apparently, the painting is the ugliest work of art ever made. No wonder he hid it. I need to thoroughly search his home.

City search: Sketching out the DetailsEdit

Detective: Bravucci, despite being a famous actor, apparently lives in an ordinary apartment building somewhere nearby. I need to find it.

Detective: Bravucci is a famous actor, but he prefers to live humbly in an ordinary apartment building somewhere nearby. I need to find it.

Bravucci's apartment is:

  • in the distance of 1 from water
  • in the distance of 1 from ACS

Detective: Hmmm, it's close to my office!

  • more than 1 from shops
Screenshot 2014-07-02-15-40-13

Solution: (2,6)

If you fail:

Detective: This actor lives literally just one block from my office and I still can't find his home. If I ever consider changing my job, I'll stay away from pizza delivery.

If you win:

Detective: It looks like he lives in the same apartment building as Lucy Gordon and Paul Litzer. No wonder he heard about me! Let's head inside.

Detective: It looks like he lives in the same apartment building as Lucy Gordon and Paul Litzer. I wonder what did they tell Bravucci about me?

Crime scene search: Canvassing the PictureEdit

Detective: I have 45 minutes before Bravucci returns with his aunt. Luckily, I have my intuition to lead me.

When you enter the next room:

Leonardo McLean: You're too late, lad. "The Honeysuckles" are mine. Go find some other house to rob.

Detective: You are barking up the wrong tree. I'm a detective working for Mr. Bravucci, and you are in trouble.

Leonardo McLean: Huh, I didn't expect a lady burglar. No matter, „The Honeysuckles" are mine. But maybe I could buy you a drink afterwards...

Detective: Not in a million years. And I'm no burglar, I'm a detective working for Mr. Bravucci. You're in trouble, Casanova.

Leonardo McLean: Wait, wait! I didn't even find it yet. I'm just doing my job.

Detective: Do it somewhere else. Get lost before I call the cops.

If you enter again:

Leonardo McLean: Say, wouldn't Bravucci want to get rid of the wretched artwork? He does not seem to really care about it.

Detective: You're still here? You've got a nerve.

Detective: But actually that's not a bad idea... Keep a look out for Bravucci, and I'll find the painting.

Leonardo McLean: My offer to take you out still stands. By the way, wouldn't Bravucci want to get rid of the wretched artwork?

Detective: You're still here? You've got a nerve.

Detective: But actually that's not a bad idea... I'm talking about the painting. Because I'm not going out with you.

If you enter again:

Leonardo McLean: Still no results? Are you sure you are a detective?

Detective: Look who's talking.

Leonardo McLean: I takes you a long time to find it. Maybe you need some help?

Detective: I'm fine. You better keep those hands where I can see them.

When you enter the living room:

Detective: I feel I'm very close...

If you enter the bedroom:

Detective: You may learn a lot by looking at someone's bedroom... but the painting isn't here.

If you enter the room south of bedroom:

Detective: It seems the painting's not here.

If you enter the kitchen:

Detective: I think kitchen is not the room I'm looking for.

If you enter the bathroom:

Detective: It seems the painting's not here.

If you examine the painting in the living room:

Detective: This is not the painting I'm looking for. The Honeysuckles must be stashed somewhere out of sight.

When you examine the painting on the sofa:

Detective: A-ha. The Honeysuckles! Stashed under the couch, how predictable.


If you fail:

Detective: Oh no, a car on the driveaway! I need to get out before the aunt sees me!

If you win:

Detective: So the painting was under the couch. How predictable! Here, take it.

Leonardo McLean: You're just giving it to me? No strings attached?

Detective: It's the best outcome for my client. Besides now, you owe me a favor.

Leonardo McLean: Now look who's the wise-guy! All right. If you're ever stuck in a case, give me a call.

Detective: You can bet I will. It's always good to have some contact on the other side of the law.

Leonardo McLean: With pleasure, pretty lady! Just give me a call when you need me. I'll come to the rescue.

Detective: Don't flaunt yourself. I'm a big girl and I can handle myself. But I could use a contact in the underworld... I'll be in touch.

FinaleEdit

If you fail:

John Bravucci: Explain yourself, detective! What happened to the painting?

Detective: I'm not sure. Maybe the rats ate it. I assume your aunt left?

John Bravucci: Not before giving me the new painting, called "Weight Watch", and it's even worse than the last one!

If you win:

John Bravucci: What happened here? Signs of forced entry, the living room ransacked, and the Honeysuckles gone!

John Bravucci: And my aunt thinks stealing her painting is a sign of admiration!

Detective: The painting gone, your aunt happy. I assume you are satisfied with the result?

John Bravucci: I... I am. I'll send you the check.

John Bravucci: You handled the case rather surprisingly. The living room is ransacked, and the Honeysuckles gone.

John Bravucci: Now my aunt thinks stealing her painting is a sign of admiration.

Detective: Well, I'm both pretty and smart. I knew that this outcome would be best for you.

John Bravucci: It's a pity we didn't have a chance to meet face to face! Maybe we can make up for it next time. In the mean while, I'll send you a check to sweeten the mood.
