That sounds pretty fun. It's a shame they don't have some kind of preview of the game itself.
Back to what I originally intended on posting, I've been experimenting with a new drawing style. Do any of you think it would be something worth working with? And please be honest, I need some constructive criticism.

It's sleek! The sort of thing we look for in design these days.

Anyone got a couple hundred quid spare?

Well, right now, I'm planning an interactive mystery for the forum, kind of like "The Manor of Dr. Montgomery IV". I've got the story planned out, and all the characters are designed. It will, at most, be a week before the backgrounds are finished. Until then, enjoy a preview of the characters.

They look nice, but the cleaning woman is WAY outdated compared to the rest. Is that a part of the story?

So, there's a new theory going around that Jack the Ripper was a woman. (Article here: http://news.yahoo.com/jackie-ripper-inf ... 27739.html)
Any thoughts on this?

I'll... ehh... decry the notion as well. What I recall from that time I read Donald Rumbelow's book was that Jack The Ripper obviously had knowledge of anatomy and butchering skills, I see no reason why Lizzie Williams would have been able to perform the surgical mutilations. Or how she managed to get near the victims, considering she was probably no costumer. On some of the evidence I'd need to look up more information to be sure, but at the very least, the remark that Annie Chapman's belongings were placed at her feet "in a feminine manner" shows reaching for straws. He's found a motive and is trying to make the evidence fit, is my guess.

Edit: Oh,and let's not forget a witness saw the 2nd victim making a deal with a man half an hour before her corpse was found.

I think that it's obvious. Consider: the greatest detective in the world, Sherlock Holmes, did not investigate the most notorious murderer of his times? Why not? Because he knew that by exposing the killer, he would lose his biographer, who was doing a great PR job. That's right: Jack the Ripper was none other than Dr. Watson!

Incidentally, I mentioned a long time ago that I was talking with an artist about doing a picture for my blog. The result, if I say so myself, is pretty **** cool:
