'Still Life' (Xbox) Creeps Into Stores

by Rainier on June 6, 2005 @ 1:08 p.m. PDT

Still Life lets you play the role of FBI agent Victoria McPherson. Situated in Chicago, you are on the heels of a serial killer, much like your grandfather did 80 years earlier in Prague (Microids' Post Mortem). By means of flashbacks and timewarps, you will travel to locations like Eastern Europe to interrogate suspects, or North America, to scrutinize dead bodies.

Players step into the role of Victoria McPherson, a brilliant young FBI agent and the granddaughter of Post Mortem's famed Private Detective, Gustav McPherson. On the hunt for a serial killer, Victoria is up against five dead bodies, a mountain of circumstantial evidence and an angry boss breathing down her neck. Things become more complicated when, on a visit to her childhood home, she comes across one of Gus' old case files dating back more than 75 years. As she reads deeper into the file, she discovers an uncanny number of similarities between her case in Chicago and the gruesome killings in 1920s Prague...

A unique investigative thriller, Still Life gives players an insider view into the world of a criminal investigator. While on the case, they will employ a variety of forensic devices and techniques and investigate an intriguing cast of characters in modern day Chicago and former day Prague.

Game Features:

  • Play as two characters: Private Eye, Gus McPherson and FBI Agent, Victoria McPherson.
