"In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups — the police who investigate crime and the district attorneys who prosecute the offenders."
As stated in the opening of each episode of the long-running Law & Order television series, there are two important sides to the investigation of any crime. Legacy Interactive, known for creating games based on real-life drama such as 911 Paramedic and Emergency Room: Code Red, strives to bring this intriguing balance of investigation and prosecution to Mac gamers with the release of Law & Order: Dead on the Money.
Fans of the TV series will recognize game characters such as Detective Lennie Brisco, Assistant D.A. Serena Southerlyn, and Lieutenant Anita Van Buren, all modeled after the actors who play them on the show. They are investigating the murder of a jogger. The victim appears to have been strangled by a gold chain — but who would wear a 24Kgold necklace for an early-morning jog through Central Park?
Players will search for clues, interview witnesses and suspects, and build a case, then fight for justice in a court of law. As in the enduring television drama, don't be surprised if some hidden piece of evidence surfaces to lead the whole case to an unexpected conclusion. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
