Play an old detective with no patience…more than one addiction…an old friend in trouble…and a dark mystery that will blow your mind in this episodic noir thriller from indie developer Buenos Aires Quarantine for PC/Mac

Nosebound is a combination of enigmatic puzzles, dramatic action, deception, noire ambiance and a really strange foe.

Buenos Aires Quarantine’s long-term objective is to create a downloadable game split into episodes. The plan is for each episode to end with a hook while being as self-contained as possible. The first two episodes should be released soon; five full-length episodes are planned.

In the initial episodes, play as Ray Hammond: a private eye with a gritty past and unorthodox methods.

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

You will also play Hammond’s old friend George Smithers (aka Smithy), who has disappeared; and Mrs. Kovacks, a femme fatale that’s essential to every noir story.

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.
