Set in the early 1920’s, Secret Mysteries in London is a hidden object / puzzle adventure game which sees you tasked with unearthing the identity of a serial killer. Your journey takes you across five countries and 14 different locations as you search for hidden objects and solve puzzles in London, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam and Washington.
The game play involves both the present time and the past simultaneously: In the present time, a journalist reads through the diary of a long dead forensic investigator called Dr. Oscar Gaebelein who was hot on the heels of a notorious serial killer known cryptically as The Sculptor. In the past time, the player journeys back to the 1920’s to take up the role of forensic investigator Dr. Gaebelein. But Dr. Gaebelein’s job is not made easy by the attitude of a 1920’s police force which sees him as a hindrance rather than an asset who might help them in their endeavours.
Until completing the investigation, questions remain unanswered. Why, eighty years on, is this journalist suddenly so interested in The Sculptor? Why did The Sculptor’s murderous rampage end as quickly as it started? And why does The Sculptor leave so much evidence at each scene, seemingly drawing Dr. Gaebelein ever towards him?
