Let me tell you the story of how my car has been making me crazy these days. It all started with a checkup. It’s a standard checkup here in Greece that you have to take your car to every two years. Of course I get it serviced much more frequently, but the law demands that.
The day after the checkup, a light symbol turned on, indicating a malfunction in the break system. I took it to the mechanic, who changed the breaks, fixed another thing, and completely missed what I said about the light symbol. So the thing wasn’t fixed and I had to take it to an electrician as well. Before I did that, I had to change tires too but that’s not very relevant. The electrician told me that it’s an ABS malfunction, that it’s safe to drive it, and that I have to take the car to him at a later date so he could investigate what exactly is the issue. Yeah, it was a very long intro just so I could use the word “investigate”, but half of you were expecting this.
So when I think of the word investigate, my mind goes to the idea of investigation and mystery based RPGs. While the first that comes to mind is Call of Cthulhu, the second one is Tales from the Loop. I haven’t had the chance to try any of them yet, but hopefully I will soon.
So, again, this is a homework post for you. I’d love it if you could suggest more investigation and mystery themed RPGs. Do you have a favorite and, if yes, why?
The next word is “push”. But I’ll get to it tomorrow, along with an update on what’s wrong with my car because I will finally take it to the mechanic.
