The Detective’s Office

The Detective's Office is a game about an aspiring actor trying his best to make it through the day on set after a long night of drinking in LA's bars. The objective is to carry out the script's instructions without the director interfering. What might sound like an easy task, turns out to be quite the challenge for our young actor’s as he seems to have gotten a little bit too accustomed to the ways of the man he is portraying. The actor assumes the role of Peter Mason, a strung out, alcoholic detective in the 1930's of Los Angeles. The whole game takes place during a single scene in the movie, set in Peter Mason's office. While the audience gets to look inside the mind of a cynic, worn-out man – he himself has to face a few "challenges" before the tides might turn.
