completely different people are invited by U.N. Owen to spend a weekend at his home on Shipwreck Island. 6 guests travel by train to the
Harbour town of Sticklehaven and 2 guests
are coming by car. After a long train journey and car
journey, the 8 guests arrive at the harbor town of Sticklehaven. After another
boat trip the 8 guests arrive at Shipwreck Island where they are welcomed by the
butler and his wife. The host, U.N. Owen, however, does not appear to have
arrived yet. The guests install themselves in their various rooms and they then
jointly enjoy the dinner. During the after-drink, the 8 guests and also the
butler and his wife are all accused of murder. One by one, the 10 people who
have been collected by U.N.Owen in his home on Shipwreck Island die, and this
goes according to the old children's rhyme "Ten Little Niggers".
principle, the Game follows the book faithfully. But to make the book playable
as a game, 1 character has been added to the company of 10 people and that is
Patrick Narracott. You play as Patrick Narracott and as such you sailed the 8 guests in
your boat from Sticklehaven to Shipwreck Island. After delivering the guest on
the island it was the intention that you return to Sticklehaven right away and
come back the next Monday pick up the guests and
return them to Sticklehaven. But then ....... Well ....... we will not give that
away just yet, so play the game and you'll see what will happens.
Game is divided into Chapters. In each Chapter you can view and / or
things and talk to the other people. Not everything is of equal importance.
There are, however, certain things in every chapter that YOU MUST DO. These are
the so-called "triggers" that ensure that you can proceed to the next
chapter of the game. If you don't do these essential things in a Chapter then
you can not proceed to the next Chapter. You can run by double click
with your left mouse button.
the top left of the screen is always your Pouch and
that is your Inventory. You can
open it by clicking on the pouch or by clicking with your right mouse button. The
Items that you pick up in the game are stored in your Inventory. Believe me ....
there will be a lot of them. Your Inventory is also the place where you can
combine Items and view them. You can combine items via the gears and view
items through the magnifying glass.
Notebook is always at the top right. You open the Notebook by clicking on it.
Documents, letters and books are stored in the Notebook. You can read all these
documents, letters and books in the Notebook. Letters, other documents and books
that you pick up are first stored in your Inventory.
a new Item is added to your Inventory, or to your Notebook, you will see that
your Pouch and your Notebook are blinking. Always view new Items in both your
Inventory and your Notebook. If you have taken an Item from your inventory to use
it in the game, always CLOSE the inventory screen.
you are Patrick Narracott and in this game you have to unravel the mystery of
Shipwreck Island and of U.N.Owen and also survive this.
leave the train for a short while to meet Anthony Marston, who drives across the
road to Sticklehaven in his flashy red sports car.
also Marston and Armstrong join the company here.
