Nancy in Japan

Another title from the series. This time with interesting Japanese theme. Here Nancy actually gets to snoop around at night. You can feel the danger, and you can die (but the second chance feature is available, so don’t panic). All of the suspects have something to hide here. The game have two satisfying endings, that are based on how you react. The only annoying feature is that you can't manually skip ahead the dialogue. It’s definitely worth a try!
