Dťjŗ Vu is a point and click adventure game set in the world of 1940s hardboiled detective novels and movies. It was released in 1985 for Macintosh Ė the first in the MacVenture series Ė and later ported to several other systems, including the Amiga.


Why this man is at a corner, spying on a women while holding a picture of him at that same corner, spying on that same women is beyond me. The gf and I theorized that maybe a rival detective took it as a way of intimidating him like ďoh look, youíre not that sneaky!Ē Or, and this is the theory I liked the most, he took the photo himself to show a client ďSee! Look! Iím totally doing my jobĒ but how long can that charade go on? Itíll be 6 picceptions deep before the client is like no, youíre fired.

Anyways

Iím going to be letís playing this game basically blind. I played it once or twice like 8 years ago on my Windows phone that I downloaded emulators on, I liked it but didnít get far into it because point and click adventure games are loving difficult for my dumb brain but Iím gonna try my best. LETS SOLVE SOME MURDERS!



Episode 1, amnesia and dead bods
Episode 2, Iím kinda violent apparently
Episode 3, sewer gators and cars exploding
Episode 4, I knew Iíd get stuck but I didnít anticipate a softlock, rip
Episode 5, good cop bad cop feat CirclMastr
Episode 6, thick ladies and drugs feat CirclMastr

I loved this game when I was young for the nes, but I could never understand how to do the last puzzle even with a gamefaq.

This was the first adventure game I ever beat as a kid. Of course I played the NES version, not the PC.

How hard would you say it is? I went into it fully expecting not to be able to finish it because I suck at point and click adventure games. Also not sure what version the one Iím playing is.

It has less bullshit than Uninvited or Shadowgate, which also came out for the NES in similar style, but it's not bullshit-free. There are some cheap deaths and not enough signposting, especially for a game that lets you hop in a cab and go wherever.

EDIT: I know you're not using a guide, but how would you feel about a co-commentator?

Thatís good to hear at least, hopefully I wonít get too stuck. But a co-commentator? I could get behind that. Iíve only ever done duel commentary once with my girlfriend, it was fun.

I donít wanna spoil anything but I do softlock the game and go on a tangent at the very end.

You miiiiight not be softlocked but odds are that you are. Hit me up on Discord sometime (CirclMastr#0848) if you want to do the co-commentator route.

Excited to see how this goes. I didn't know that this was a Mac game first. I only ever saw it on NES, and since I didn't own one, was never able to get far into it since I would only get to try it at a friend's house (they didn't like it much so they hadn't played it on their own).

SPOILER: The LP is definitely in an unwinnable state. You need a lot of quarters. See the next spoiler for where to get quarters

Play the slot machine in the casino. You will eventually win at least once before running out of quarters

Thanks to CirclMastr for hopping on to do co-commentary and helping break the soft lock.

Also thanks SB Hermit for the spoiler tip.

No prob!

Good luck, you're on the right track.

There's a few notable differences between this version and the original NES, I think. Besides the fact that you can use a mouse, the other is an incredibly severe time limit. Lots of needed quality-of-life improvements all around. I really enjoy seeing this playthrough to spot the differences.

I think the time limit only ran on until you reversed your amnesia in the original game.
