Are candies really that bad for your health? Apparently it depends on who wants to know the answer.

"Perry Jameson wants to get his hands on a research paper that proves that mayor Covet is wrong."


Perry J. Jameson: Tell me, are you as keen on getting the truth as I am?

Detective: It depends on the truth, Perry. What are you trying to uncover?

Perry J. Jameson: I got wind of a research paper about the sugar ban, but the author had disappeared before the paper was published.

Detective: And I assume that paper provided arguments against the sugar ban?

Perry J. Jameson: Exactly! People deserve to know the truth. Even in a blooming democracy, people can only exercise their right to vote when they can make an informed judgement.

Detective: Well said, Perry. No wonder you're running for mayor. I'll find that research paper for you.


Detective: I've got no leads to find the scientist, but maybe someone remembers where the paper was going to be published.

If you fail:

Detective: I'm sure Perry just made up the whole thing. Candy is bad for your health, everybody knows that!

If you win:

Detective: Remember that health-care report you wanted me to find, Sam? Do you recall where did it came from?

Sam Lowry: Uh... The Food Research Center, probably. But keep that for yourself. The research center is off limits to non-authorised personnel.

Detective: A-ha! I need to check that out.

City search: Forbidden ResearchEdit

Detective: The research center is off limits, huh? It probably won't be easy to find it.

The research center is:

  • not more than 3 from a club
  • more than 1 from water
  • more than 3 from warehouses
  • more than 1 from cafés
  • more than 1 from offices
  • On the map there are 2 clubs
  • On the map there are 3 warehouses

If you fail:

Detective: The research center is well hidden. What do they keep there? Aliens?

If you win:

Detective: Great! Here it is. I'll probably need some help to get inside.

Detective: Hi there, Perry. Could you get me a press pass to the Food Research Center?

Perry J. Jameson: Sure thing, I'll send someone with the pass. Just stay where you are.

Crime scene search: Hard DataEdit

Detective: The press pass grants access only to the visitor's area. I'll have to figure out how to get to the restricted parts of the research center. The paper's draft is probably there.

If you fail:

Detective: This is no use. The paper's not here. Perhaps someone destroyed it?

If you win:

Detective: I've got it, but it looks like the draft was censored! Maybe I can use it to reach the scientist, though.

Suspect identification: Brain FoodEdit

Detective: I can analyze the draft to figure out who's the author.

CH4C3 RestrictedResearch 03 SuspectID Solution

Solution: Alan Eisenberg

If you fail:

Detective: The author vanished just like his paper. I wonder who was behind it all?

If you win:

Detective: Alan Eisenberg? You're the scientist who published the paper against the sugar ban?

Alan Eisenberg: Oh my, indeed. But please, keep that to yourself! I don't want anymore trouble.

Detective: What do you mean? Did someone threaten you?

Alan Eisenberg: That is correct! I was forced to censor the paper and keep the findings to myself. The scientific body wanted nothing to do with it.

Alan Eisenberg: You see, the FRC is dedicated to researching health food. If the sugar ban is lifted, the funding will decrease significantly. My colleagues would lose their jobs.

Detective: I guess you're in luck. I found someone who could sponsor your research, if you're willing to speak up for what you believe.


If you fail:

Perry J. Jameson: So? where's my research paper? I wanted to publish it in the next edition of the Daily News!

Detective. I'm sorry Perry, but someone put a lot of effort to bury that research. I don't know how and when...

Perry J. Jameson: I think we both know who's behind this. Well, hard data or not, my pencil pushers will write something believable.

If you win:

Perry J. Jameson: I just received a call from one Alan Eisenberg. He wants to publish an article on the sugar ban in Daily News! So the truth did prevail in the end, huh?

Detective: It did. Eisenberg was afraid of his colleagues, but with independent funding, he can follow his research career.

Perry J. Jameson: Good, and speaking of funding, I'll send you a big, fat check.

Detective: Speaking of big and fat, I really hope Alan Eisenberg's findings are true!
