Really, the plot was actually more like an any day murder. If you were to take out the Nazi part of it.
But really the plot makes senses, one of the things we were trying to get to before the Russia during the end of WW2 was the V9 rockets. I would be surprise if we kept some of the Nazi for the reason to continue the development of the V9 rockets.

The reason why it is good is because of the Plot. If one were to take out the Nazi part, it would look like an average Murder like there is on each day. But given the time period its in, and the fact that it has some realism to it, it would not be a surprise that something similar happen when some of the Nazi scientist we allowed to be free if they work on the Rockets with the US.

I have no idea where are you starting again after so much time.

But if you want to hear it again:
freakin' Nazis are freakin' overused.

Jesus, I'm Polish, but if they want to touch this theme...
Do something about Jews in Getto.
Do something about Soviet invasion.
Do something about... I don't know... Battle of England.

There is plenty of themes connected to Poland and WW2 that isn't fuckin' Nazis!

Been lurking since The Root, but since I recently replayed a few of the games, I just want to chime in about the dumbing down of the game....

The platform for the Scene of the Crime games is obviously used in Rizzoli and Isles games, and they've influenced each other. I never finished the second Rizzoli and Isles one because of the automation of the evidence board--it took all the fun out of it. The Golden Doll (and the R&I Masterpiece Murders) were great because the player had to take these items of evidence and figure out how they all tied together by using the evidence board. Kinda like what a real detective had to do. With that now done for the player, Scene of the Crime simply becomes a point and click game, no adventure, no thought, no effort. And no fun.

That, and signaling an item to pick up, really makes the gameplay pointless. I'm hoping that the next Scene of the Crime goes back to how the Golden Doll and Masterpiece Murders did it.

Quite a lot of his games have Nazis involved somehow...why?


Actually, very few do.

Owl's Nest--yup.
Covert Front--WWI German military, but not Nazis
Daymare Town--nope
Submachine--nope
10 Gnomes--I'm suspicious
Fog Fall--nope
Space Oddity--nope
Room Escape games--nope
Aurora games--nope
Morbid games--nope
Barbara's escape games--nope
Monster Detective--nope
Squirrel games--Nazi Gnomes in disguise?

The overuse of Nazis I don't see as a criticism. It's also historically accurate--the United States actively recruited German scientists after World War II because of the Cold War. While President Truman expressly ordered that they don't hire anyone found to have been a member of the Nazi party, the Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency circumvented Truman by giving the scientists false identities and public biographies. Thus, several former Nazi scientists went to the United States. One of them--Hubertus Strunghold--experimented on humans at the Dachau concentration camp, was named by the Nuremberg Trails as one of 13 implicated in war crimes at the camp, but he was never charged, even though he became the subject of three separate U.S. government investigations.

Submachine has an howitzer, but I don't think its a relevant clue.

Technically he's right, because owl's nest wasn't made by him, and I'm guessing neither is SotC 3.
