This Detective is in Need of a Voodoo-Hoodoo Adventure
Welcome to New Ginen, a welcoming paradise for tourists all around the world. But in the business of mysterious hocus-pocus, there’s always something in the air. Enter the Voodoo Detective, a hero who greatly pays homage to classic point-and-click games such as King’s Quest and Monkey Island. One day, he comes into contact with Mary Fontule, who needs the detective’s help. However, she suffers from amnesia, thus snowballing this new case into something much bigger at hand.
