Join FBI special agent Jonathan Weaver in his investigation to uncover the mystery of his family's death. His family's case belongs to a series of related murders called the "Providence Murder Cases" bizarre murder cases that occurred 18 years ago, all of which are linked by one recurring piece of evidence. As the only survivor of the incident, he has been pursuing unanswered questions ever since.
From the makers of Hotel Dusk comes the new crime mystery title, AGAIN. Featuring a captivating story full of suspense, unexpected surprises and unique visual presentation, Cing’s latest creation takes the text-adventure genre to a whole new level.

The story begins 19 years ago when an unsolved series of murders shook up the town of Clockford. At the crime scenes, detectives find a crucial piece of evidence linking the crimes together—a torn piece of a dollar bill, showing the Eye of Providence. In present day, another string of murders have started again with the same piece of evidence, convincing detectives to reopen the case. As FBI Agent Jonathan Weaver, you will follow the clues using his Past Vision powers and navigate through a fictitious adaptation of an early 90’s crime-ridden New Jersey. In addition to uncovering the story, you will learn of each character’s background, stories that are interesting within themselves.

Why is he the only survivor?

...and what is that "red moon" he saw the night of the murder?
