Just a quick hi from the author of Investigation 1 & 2 :) I have the Atari ST magazine in which the game was reviewed and can upload screenshots when I find a bit more time :) Thanks for the great review/memories, Dave.

I was ten when Investigation was released; I must of thought at that age that I was actually quite old, and I must have experienced somekind of false level of coolness at school. Though, this is only what I thought. ;thinking about becoming ten, at the age of nine was probably quite important for me. Anyway, Investigation was a superb game, written purely in STOS by a chap called Dave Weeks. I don't where he is now, but at the time, I wrote to him laying praise upon, for creating such a brilliant game. He wrote back and we kept in contact, and he eventually produced Investigation 2, which he kindly posted to me gratis. I bought the original game from LAPD, a Public Domain company in Heanor, Derbyshire.It cost three pounds! The game was in the style of Police Quest, or Space Quest, though rather than American parser, or space age locations, it was grounded firmly in England. You could go to the pub, go to your mate "Daz"s house, and go to a burger bar. Oh, and there was a casino too! The ruin of many a gameplays cashflow. If I remember rightly, you had to sober up your friend, who was a computer whiz; you needed him in order to stop a Mr Wellard from doing something nasty, which I cannot quite remember was exactly. You had to build contraptions to accomplish certain missions, and the whole thing worked very well. The graphics where "Simpsonesque", though I don't recall any sound. Anyway, the novelty lay in the fact that you could do pretty much whatever you wanted; go bowling, go into a computer gameshop, steal from a shop. As a ten year old I found this brilliant. How postmodern can you get. All in all, ironically my favourite game for the Atari ST...ever...Ironic, as it was the one title of about a hundred I must of accrued from '88-'95, that was also the cheapest. Respect to Dave Weeks, wherever you are!
