Jack the Ripper (1995)

GameTek’s Jack the Ripper is a somewhat rare adventure game where you try to solve the identity of The Ripper.

This first person adventure game is the more famous Jack the Ripper game, as opposed to the one that I posted last month. Like that game, the object here is to solve the mystery of the identity of Jack the Ripper. Unlike that one, this one takes place in the 19th century when the Jack the Ripper murders actually took place. Supposedly it is based on real research into the identity of the killer.

The game came in a large two-piece box with a slipcover. It is apparently somewhat rare and sought after, although I don’t know why that would be. It doesn’t look like a particularly good game and the premise is not all that original.
