The Dame Was Loaded for DOS

Australia, 1996


The Dame Was Loaded is a detective mystery adventure game reminiscent of private eye movies of the 1940’s. The player controls detective Scott Anger, who is hired by a mysterious woman to find her missing brother, Dan. What at first appears to be just another missing persons case, opens up a much larger web involving Dan’s dark past. The game requires the player to use sleuthing skills to interact with characters, represented by live actors, and solve puzzles.
