In this story, you will be PRISM, the world's first sentient machine.The story begins in the world of 2031, a world on the brink of chaos. The economy of the United States of North America (USNA) has been stagnating for decades. Crackpot religions are springing up all over the place. Crime and urban decay are rampant. Schools have become violent, chaotic places ill-suited for educating children. Today's youth frequently use joybooths to "tune-out" the world, leading in the extreme case to joybooth suicide, where a psychological addict wastes away in his or her private nirvana. The global situation is even grimmer. The calcuttization of the Third World has almost reached its limit, causing extreme overpopulation and poverty.

So when Senator Richard Ryder, along with a small group of leaders from government, business, and the universities, announces the Plan for renewed national purpose, everyone is only too willing to embrace it. Only one thing stands between the Plan and its adoption: a test of its validity. That's why you have been "awakened" from your simulated life and had your true nature revealed to you several years ahead of schedule. You have been chosen to use your unique abilities to enter a simulation of the future, based on the tenets of the Plan, in order to check its effectiveness. The eyes of the world are on you.

Welcome to Sharpwood, a remote border town in the north. It's a rough, cold place, where inhabitants know their neighbors by name and faithfully keep to their traditions, no matter how barbaric those traditions might be. Smugglers, gangs and screaming populists have made this town their home. Despair grows like a cancer, hand in hand with violence.

Just like the first game, This Is the Police 2 is a mixture of adventure and management genres, and this time it enjoys further unexpected mechanics that will strengthen both the strategic and tactical parts of the game. It won’t be enough just managing the equipment of your policemen and keeping in mind their individual skills. Every challenge requires the player’s direct participation, and the outcomes will depend on every decision you make. Now your subordinates aren’t just some resource; they are living people with their own strengths, weaknesses, fears and prejudices, and you'll have to reckon with all these things in order to survive.

"Day of the Tentacle" - the cult Adventure game, that each of us know and loves, continues! With "Return of the Tentacle" we want to make a worthy sequel to the former point-and-click successor!

The story of the new Adventure is linked to the predecessor: Purple Tentacle is back and wants to take on the world and enslave humankind again. Will Bernard and his friends defeat Purple and save the world? It's up to you!

Another time megalomaniac tentacles have to be hunted, insane dialogues will make you laugh and crazy puzzles want to be solved. Control the characters Bernard, Hoagie and Laverne like in good old 2D Adventure times using your mouse and a modern interface. You will walk through hand-drawn backgrounds with lovingly animated characters, mood music and soundscape. We do our best to bring the atmosphere and the fun of the old classic to the 21st century.

Besides familiar faces from the predecessors, you'll also meet guests which actually do their mischief in other games.

The prologue of our Fan Adventures will be released this summer for Windows, Mac and Linux.
