About Chinatown Detective Agency

Chinatown Detective Agency is a mystery adventure game that requires players to do real-world investigation in order to solve cases. It is inspired by the classic Carmen Sandiego games from the 1980s and 1990s. In order to solve a worldwide mystery, they’ll journey throughout the globe in search of culprits, witnesses, and clues.

Singapore is at 12 a.m. Your contact isn’t returning your calls, your customer is demanding answers, and an empty bank account looms over you like a neon-tinted Sword of Damocles. Welcome to the year 2037. The Chinatown Detective Agency would like to welcome you to our website.

As the global economy approaches the trough of its decade-long decline, the globe is in motion. Singapore is the final bastion of order, yet even here, the government is on the verge of collapse. That’s where you enter the picture. You’re Amira Darma, a former INTERPOL star who’s now a newly minted Private Investigator in Chinatown, and your first client is about to come through your door…


Neon lamplight reflected in rainwater pools. The enraged masses’ indignation was expressed in graffiti strewn over crumbling cities. Shanghai’s bright lights and the approaching gloom of riverfront London. Immerse yourself in the chaotic future of 2037 by exploring over a hundred gorgeously depicted locations created by artist Ricardo Juchem. In pursuit of leads, travel the world from your headquarters in Singapore and speak with hundreds of distinct spoken characters, each with their own secret goal.


Amira’s cases demand quick thinking and intuition to solve, but what happens when the clues run out? That’s when you’ll have to hunt for solutions outside of the game. Whether it’s an internet search for an airport code or digging down a puzzling quotation, the mysteries of Chinatown Detective Agency demand real-world inquiry. You’re not just pretending to be a detective; you’re really one.


Time is a valuable resource at the Chinatown Detective Agency. To keep one step ahead of the game and avoid going bankrupt, manage your time and money properly.

Every decision you make will have an impact on the world around you and alter Amira’s tale for the better. Will you be able to rescue the city from the clutches of fear and chaos?
