Detectiveland by robinjohnson

New Losago, 1929 - a town full of creeps, clowns, mobsters and, if you know where to look, the occasional honest citizen. Guide private investigator Lanson Rose through a series of puzzling cases: solve the city's liquor supply problem in "Speakeasy Street", track down a missing food scientist in "The Big Pickle", and investigate strange goings-on under a dilapidated mansion in "A Study in Squid".

It's great except it's SO HARD. I used ALL of the hints and I still don't know how to do it! What does he mean when you unfurl the menu something falls out? I didn't see anything.

LOVE IT how do I get more games from the same creator? I really want to check out your other games.The best part about this game is it has helpful hints otherwise it would have been tooooooooooo hard to do.the next thing is I dont have to type commands because in other games we have to type commands and we cant type "look in closet" we Have to say "look at closet" so thats when some people get stuck.
