It is Manhattan in the year 2040. You are Jake Quinlan, the handsome ace reporter
for the Virtual Herald; a daily cyberspace-distributed newspaper. In this time of
mind-blowing technologies, no one would have expected anything like this to happen.
They would have never anticipated that the Ripper would return over 150 years later,
but he did, better than ever, eviscerating his victims and leaving no trace of his
presence or method. You get to explore 3D environments, talk to various characters,
hang out in virtual reality, solve puzzles, and try to save your hide as people drop
like flies around you. There are three levels of difficulty for puzzles, three for
combat (yes, there's combat) and four different possibilities as to who the Ripper
is that change with every new game you start. The game contains 3 hours of video footage.
