Borrowed Time

You are the central character in a complex adventure that begins in your office. The computer shows you the world from the character's point of view.
In order to save your skin and bring the perpetrator to justice, you must explore your world and its many characters. Search for clues, examine everything, question everyone and be on guard for danger. Then, put it all together and discover your predator. This will take a lot of thinking, some clever approaches, a good memory and a penchant for risk-taking.
Let the computer be your eyes, ears, voice, hands and legs. Tell it what you want to do by using the keyboard, mouse or joystick to give it commands. Commands include verbs and nouns: form instance, TALK TO MAN or TAKE WALLET. The computer also understands more complex commands, like GIVE THE FLOWERS TO THE WAITRESS.
You can string commands together, too: TALK TO MAN AND SHOW GUN. However, the computer will perform the commands separately rather than simultaneously. So in this case, if talking to the man gets you "killed", you'll never get the chance to wield your gun.
Of course, the computer isn't as smart as you are. It might not understand all of your commands. Since your vocabulary is bigger, experiment with different words and ways of expressing what you want to do. If an important command is rejected, make several attempts to reword it.
The screen displays a list of verbs and nouns. These aren't all the words the computer understands, but they suggest the sorts of words that you can use. They can be used in commands by pointing to them with the joystick or mouse.
