The Case of Andrew D. (and how it connects with PF)

  • Thread starter Borek
  • Start date
In summary, the conversation discusses a new computer game that involves finding locations on pictures as part of gameplay. The game is a detective story and players work with real files and locations. The game is a continuation of the developer's previous game, but with modifications to make it more appealing. The conversation ends with a teaser from the game tutorial, revealing that the location of the conversation is in front of the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw, Poland.

Younger hatchlings won't remember, but some PF dinosaurs may recall the "landmark" game. That was over 10 years ago, we were guessing what is/where is the landmark on the posted image. To some degree it got ruined by reverse image search and/or was replaced by things like geoguesser, so we stopped playing. But: fast forward to today, I am working on a new computer game, in which finding locations of places on the picture is part of the gameplay.

This is kind of a detective story, based on DFIR and OSINT, with some elements of Alternate Reality - player "job" is to help private eyes working for a detective agency to solve cases for their clients. You work with real files and real life locations. Still long time before the game will be published, but if anyone is interested there is already a free, playable demo on steam:



In a way it is a continuation of ideas from my previous game, The USB Stick Found in the Grass, just modified to make it more acceptable for the players that didn't like the idea of an open ended story.

So... can you find out where I am standing?

You are in front of the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw, Poland. Just took one google search: "tall building clock tower spire Europe"

That's just a trivial teaser from the game tutorial, but yes - you are right. In the game you will need to mark the place on the map (and typically it won't be that easy).
