Can we play on mobile devices, e.g., smartphones?

The game is designed for PCs, laptops, or tablets. The bigger your screen, the better, so we don't recommend playing on smartphones, although if you want a challenge, then that's on you!

If our game time runs out, will we be able to finish the game?

Yes, there is nothing to stop you. We know that rushing can be a bad idea, especially when solving puzzles. The timer is there to add some pressure to stop the Cryptic Killer. However, the game's main goal is to have fun, so there's no issue with the timer running out unless your pride gets hurt by it.

Old Dog

Steve "Old Dog" Kowalski

Krakow, Poland

Old dog has always appeared older and wiser than his years, from an early age he wanted to work in law enforcement and achieved his dreams when accepted into the Polish police force.

His successes started before his training was even complete and never really stopped. That was until he was assigned to work with Ally on an international hunt for the Cryptic Killer that ended up becoming his white whale.

Essentially a loner, Old dog spends his nights listening to jazz music and drinking coffee as he obsesses over the details of the decade old cold case.

Ally

Allison Abernathy ("Ally" for short)

Glasgow, Scotland

Ally grew up in a police family and was always destined to join the police force. When Ally puts her mind to something she achieves it and lets nothing get in her way.

Her streak of success as a detective, was interrupted when she worked with the Polish police to investigate the Cryptic Killer case. It was then that she was seriously injured and the perpetrator fled.

Since returning to the services, after recovering from her injures, she now deals with smaller, less complex cases. However, she is still a determined detective and uncompromising investigator.
