..

..FFirst-Person Mystery Adventure.

You enter the world of Dateline: Bronzeville as Runny Walker, a seasoned photojournalist and columnist for the Chicago Advocate. Your news beat is Bronzeville, where you know everyone, and you know where almost all the bodies are buried. In your weekly column, you chronicle and critique the spectrum of social, political, cultural, sport, entertainment and community events in Bronzeville..

…..But you also go deeper, probing crimes, exposing corruption, and fighting exploitation in your community. Your column takes on the hot topics, and that can cost your life!

…..The game action takes place over the course of three weeks. Runny’s column, Dateline: Bronzeville, is published at the end of each week.

…..The Player intuitively explores the fascinating world of a now-vanished Bronzeville, and interacts with numerous distinctive characters, and experiences the milieu of Chicago’s South side during The Great Migration, The Great Depression, The Chicago Renaissance, and Jim Crow Segregation, while discovering clues in order to solve several crimes and mysteries.

…..Tools of the Trade: camera, notebook, darkroom, typewriter, the Case Board, the Event Board, the Files, Informants.

…..Immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and intrigue of 1940s era Chicago as never before when you step into Dateline: Bronzeville.
