PC Malone grabbed her freshly rolled cigarette, stuck it in her mouth, and lit it. She exhaled blue smoke. Looking through the plumes, she spotted the stack of papers near her desk — all old cases from the force that she’d quit long ago. She began to wonder about her future as a private investigator. Whether the modern world would ever give her more than thankless adultery cases. Emancipation still had a long way to go. More smoke filled her lungs and she sighed another cloud. “Is this life worth what I’ve given up?”, she wondered. “Maybe I should help Green…”

A Case of Distrust is a narrative mystery from 1924 San Francisco. Play as private investigator Phyllis Cadence Malone in this historical 2D adventure game. Explore underground speakeasies, smoke-filled billiard halls, classic barber shops, and more. Catch suspects in lies by using evidence, statements, and your wits. Intrinsic challenges face our heroine, as she struggles against a pushback on emancipation, leading to many doubts, both internal and external. Uncover the truth in a mystery full of deception!

This game is a blend of the board game Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective, the adventure games 80 Days and Phoenix Wright, the poster design of Saul Bass, and the hard-boiled novels of Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler.

Ben Wander - Design, Code, Visuals, Writing
Ben is a AAA industry veteran, with experience at BioWare and Visceral Games. He jumped ship to indie in October 2015 because he couldn't get enough of this indie scene -- indie games were all he was playing! He'd had a 1920s setting in mind for a long while, and had always loved narrative games. So, with some savings in pocket, he took the plunge!

Mark "Marowi" Wilson - Music/SFX
Another old hand, Mark has worked at Team Bondi (LA Noire), BioWare (Dragon Age: Inquisition), and Riot Games (LoL). He, too, felt the pull of the indie scene, and eventually left his job for creative freedom. When Ben mentioned his game had no audio support, Mark sprung at the idea of being the game’s Audio Designer. He creates all the music and sound effects you hear in A Case of Distrust.
