Blue Heat: The Case of the Cover Girl Murders

Orion Interactive, 1997

This is a mature nature adventure game of suspense and murder that casts you as Holly Jacobson, an undercover LAPD Homicide Detective investigating the murders of Cover Girl models posing nude for an adult magazine, LA Erotica. The killer has used a similar method to kill the girls at different times and places by tying each of their hands and legs on the four-bed posts before killing them. You start your undercover investigation by meeting and questioning the suspects, cross-examining the clues and sifting evidences to find a lead that may carry you closer to the murderer. During your investigation the serial killer strikes again and again and other models lose their lives. You save all the information that you gather and all the records related to the case in a Personal Digital Assistant or a PDA.

The game is created in a photo-realistic environment, which can be viewed at some places in a 360-degree panned view. You interact with suspects and other characters in an interactive full-motion-video environment. There is a map option that provides you a 45-degree overhead view of Los Angeles, which you use to travel from one place to another. The most exciting feature of the game is the cast that includes many Playboy Playmates and top-notch celebrities of the big screen showing their best performance in this exciting game.
