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
Episode 7, ketchup, a hitman and a dog named taco feat CirclMastr.
Episode 8, drugging sleeping people feat CirclMastr
Episode 9, grand finale 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.

Did you ever go back and finish it?

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 still think that Ace really did owe siegel and the iou is real. Which makes it easier to frame Ace as the fall guy.

the tissues reference is for the old movie "To Have and Have Not". You can search for "the whistle scene".

I asked CirclMastr about this since heís the one with the memory and neither of us could recall reading anything that straight up says wether the debt/IOU was real or fake but CirclMastr did say he thought Ace and Joey knew each other before since Joey had a poster of Ace in his boxing days. He also said he could remember if it stated it specifically but he thought Joey might of been Aceís boxing manager back in the day.

Congrats! This game was wicked hard on the original mac and it's awesome to see it played. Kinda shows its age due to the lack of niceties that you'd find in more modern games such as an updating journal and a list of objectives, etc. But it's still fun, the way it is now.

Thanks! Iím glad people seemed to enjoy it :) I had a lot of fun with it.
