Emerald City Confidential

Developer Release Year Platforms

Petra is Emerald City's only private detective. One dark night, she is approached by a strange woman named Dee Gale. It appears Dee's fiancé is missing, and Dee is willing to pay high and above the going rate in order to find him. Lacking any other prospects, Petra agrees. What starts off as a simple missing person case soon takes Petra deep into the seedy underbelly of the Emerald City's criminal underground and beyond. She will encounter many characters both familiar and new, learn several magic spells, and uncover the answer to a dark secret that has haunted Petra all her life.
