A point-and-click, episodic mystery adventure for PC and Mac from indie developer Buenos Aires Quarantine Studios, with a look and style inspired by Raymond Chandler’s The Big Sleep, the movie Double Indemnity and other noir classics

In the initial chapters of NoseBound, you play as the character Ray Hammond, a private eye with a gritty past and unorthodox methods to pull off his job. The story takes you back and forth from the end to the very beginning. Players find out what happened, how it happened, and live the story.

The phone rings, you equip yourself with the basic detective gear and off to your office you go. You start the investigation, interrogate some contacts and snoop around, following clues. As soon as you poke your nose in deep enough, the big troubles begin. Troubles you confront with your wits or your guns.

You also play alternate characters: George Smithers A.K.A. Smithy, Hammond’s friend who has disappeared under strange circumstances, and Mrs. Kovacks, la femme fatale — the staple of all tales noir.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal. "I put my heart and soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process." - Vincent Van Gogh "I need solitude for my writing; not like a hermit - that wouldn't be enough - but like a dead man." - Franz Kafka "I've been to hell and back, my boy." - Susan Ashworth, The Cat Lady
