Preview: Red Johnson's Chronicles
by Tara Long

Several things came to mind when I first heard of Red Johnson's Chronicles. I thought it perhaps the heroic tale of one man's struggle to survive in a post-apocalyptic planet overrun by one-legged banshees. Or maybe, I hypothesized, you play as an elderly gentleman librarian whose chronicles were stolen and now you must search the globe in order to retrieve them! I even wondered for a second if it was about a giant anthropomorphic penis that breaks loose from its owner and goes on a terrorizing rampage around the city before finally devouring a bus full of tourists. Or maybe, I presumed, it's just a story about a guy who solves a mystery or something.

Well, turns out, I was right.

Red Johnson’s Chronicles is your average point-and-click adventure game with a murder mystery twist. Taking inspiration from titles like Monkey Island, Professor Layton, and Phoenix Wright, the game manages to seamlessly infuse problem solving skills with investigative techniques in a way that is nothing short of captivating. In doing so, the developers have created what they feel offers a fun and interesting alternative to Rockstar’s upcoming murder mystery, L.A. Noire, at a significantly lower price point.
