Project status: RELEASED.
Witness, The - Cover art

Dead: one gilt-edged society dame.  And now it looks like some two-bit grifter is putting the screws to her multimillionaire old man.  All in all, a pretty typical Angeleno clan for these days.  But then the shakedown turns ugly, and you’re left with a stiff and a race against the clock to nail your suspect… if, that is, you don’t cash in your chips ahead of time.

Re-released as part of Infocom’s Mystery Collection.
