A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

For Freelance Police-Detective Jonathan Murphy P.I, it's just another slow day boogie-boarding the meme waves in the dystopian near-future... Until he's called down to the Rift Zone to investigate another case of murder gone deadly. A case that Murphy won't soon forget.

I mean there's no reason he would... It's not like he's been asked to memorize a really long number or something. I can remember loads of dumb stuff from like 20 years ago, and none of it was anywhere near this exciting!

Play as post-millennial investigator Jon Murphy, as you point and click your way through a soft-boiled cyberpunk detective story. Featuring over 20 minutes of recorded dialogue - a LOT for a game that's only 10 minutes long. What can I say, dumb cyberpunk jokes are fun to write!

Awesome game there are some parts that took forever but its ok :D

Awesome work guys! Great humor, top quality voice acting and dankness, over the top puns about Juice, a very funny and pleasent experience :D

I made a video playing your game:

if you want to check, best of luck in making it a full release, can't wait to see more! Cheers!

Ive been waiting for a game like this to come out


This game is a gift from the heavens <3


I love your style, such sort of games are soooo rare!

But I have an issue though - I was playing it on mac and couldn't get rid of the axe. I don't know whether it's a bug or maybe I'm being stupid?

I hope you'll get to do more. <Spoiler> needs to be avenged!

Can't wait to play this! :D

Cheers Muz. It's no Bruford though!

Love your pixel art style, this game plus Riders and Crawl all look dope. Great visuals, a couple laugh out loud moments and fun solutions that feel intuitive.

Let me 'axe' you a question tho: Are there future plans for the series? Like small episodes or a single larger installment?

Thanks! Barney's the real artist of the team (He did Crawl, RHB and Maitre D) I just cheat by using extremely limited palette, at least for Riders of Rhea and this :P

I do want to do more adventures, I really enjoy making them. Part of making this game was to build up some tools in unity to make it easy to make adventure games in future.

Cool, I hope you guys can do some interesting things with the point and click genre. I've never been a huge fan of the format, tho I loved Sam & Max Hit the Road. Most of the time it's grab a walkthru and hope the visuals and story are good.

Like I was super pumped to play Gemini Rue, because I heard there was gunfights in it, but... got stuck on the first "puzzle". I pretty much expected that but it was still disappointing. Your previous games have cool concepts that are well-executed, so I figure you can avoid wonky scenarios/solutions.

Also, playing this the same day I get to see a Blade Runner trailer? Thanks kismet, old buddy.
