Emerald City Confidential

JohnBPoint and click adventure games will never die, thanks in part to the efforts of Wadjet Eye Games, creator of the Blackwell series, The Shivah, and now, Emerald City Confidential. In the studio's latest title you are cast in the role of Petra, a young private eye trying to make a living in the strange Wizard of Oz-inspired world known as Emerald City. The hand drawn artwork is utterly captivating, the storytelling and writing top-notch, and the game itself is a package you won't be able to tear yourself away from.

emeraldcity.jpgAs with most detective-based games, Emerald City Confidential starts out innocently enough with a client barging into the PI's office with a desperate plea. In this case we have Dee Gale, a well-off woman seeking her missing fiance who, even though he "travels" quite often, hasn't been seen for days. With little else demanding her attention (except for an arch nemesis in the form of a suit-wearing lion), Petra hops on the case, accepts the cash advance, and begins her investigation.

Traveling around this magical 1940s film noir land is a simple affair. Each location is filled with objects to examine and people to talk to. Use the mouse to navigate dialogue trees, initiate conversations, grab items and use inventory objects. Simple enough. As you travel throughout Emerald City and the lands beyond, you'll gradually uncover pieces of Petra's history and learn a lot about the harsh streets from various creative/shady characters. Talking dogs and robotic sentries, anyone?

Analysis: The artwork and story are what make this game truly shine, and the depth of which both burrow is impressive. Every location, every character, and every relationship in the game is steeped in mystery. Beyond the game's well-integrated puzzles, you'll also have to put together bits of story lines to make everything fit, a sort of meta-puzzle that takes place outside of the confines of the game.

emeraldcity2.jpgThe backdrops in the game (of which there are over 40, each one drawn by hand) are nothing short of gorgeous, and the amount of imagination put into every nook and cranny of the game is breathtaking. Emerald City Confidential paints a complete world from many levels, creating a surprisingly immersive experience for an old-school adventure game.

One pitfall Emerald City Confidential avoids is packing the world with too many things to investigate and areas to explore. It suffers a tiny bit in that the adventure is more linear, but the storytelling and character designs are so interesting, you honestly won't mind. In fact, if the puzzles were more intricate, I feel they would detract from the plot too much, which is one area this game really shines.

Beautiful, intriguing, well-thought-out, and put together so perfectly you'd swear it fell off the awesome tree, Emerald City Confidential is a stunning adventure game anyone — even non-adventure fans — can really get into.

Any way to install the game without the stupid 'Ask toolbar' installation? My copy wouldn't let me proceed without selecting 'yes'.

Any suggestions?

I didn't get the Ask toolbar question. But I'm guessing that it isn't Mac compatible so it wasn't even an option.

I'll try installing the game on Windows and see what happens.

Ah, ok, there is a checkbox to OPT OUT from the Ask toolbar.

After you accept the Playfirst license, the next dialog you get is the Ask toolbar install.

Just above the box that lists the entire toolbar license there is a checkbox:

"I want to install the free Ask toolbar"

Deselect that box if you don't want it. :)

About how many hours of gameplay does this average? This looks super-cool, and I think I'll download the demo when I get home, but for $20, is the full version more like four hours of gameplay or thirty?

Um, it took me maybe 5 hours, but I didn't earn all of the trophies, and there were a lot of dialogue lines that I skipped over, so I might go back and play it again just for fun. Honestly I thought it was a great game, one of the best I've ever seen, and I think that the full voice cast really added to it. There's a really sweet ending too it as well, but I really don't want to spoil anything.

What you can also do if you want to avoid paying the full price of 20 dollars is you can sign up for the "playpass" basic, which costs 10 dollars a month, with 50% on all games. Basically what you can do then is sign up for that, then with the 10 dollar a month credit, buy the game at the decreased price, so it only costs 10 dollars. It's not even compulsive for you to pay the next time around, you can buy this one game then completely cancel the service.

But once again, in my opinion, it is a VERY, VERY worthy buy. Not for totally hardcore point and clickers, but the plot is fabulous and the Oz-theme is incredibly inspired. I liked everything about the game, really. I hope that helped if you were thinking of buying, and that you can use the reduced price tip above!

Cheers.

Does your Mac meet the minimum requirements?
Maybe try reinstalling it?

I loved this game. I contemplated skipping my shift and calling in sick to play it. It's like a book in that you're playing through an actual plot that is engaging and interesting. I can't think of any recent casual download games that hold a candle to this one as far as plot goes. The art was fantastic, and I loved the expansion of the Wizard of Oz into an entire world of interconnected personalities and political schemes. Just the imagination and creative effort that went into this game is unbelievable. I really wish more games were made like this one instead of sacrificing playability and creativity for graphics, unnecessary complexity, and repetitive gameplay. I was entertained for the whole seven hours it took me to complete the story. That's a rare thing.

Well I'm on a G4 running OS X 10.4.10 with 1.42 GHz processor and 1 gig on memory. Should be cool, right? So I went ahead and trashed it and tried downloading again. Nothing. Weird, huh? I'm so disappointed, I really wanted to play this game. The last really awesome game I played was Dirty Split and I thought this would be similar.

You skipped through the dialogue? That's like, half of the game right there. In fact, you should probably listen to the witty banter between other characters just for the fun of it. It's not as if there's any urgency or anything, even when the world hangs in the balance.

Sometimes, these conversations also try to imply what to do next through indirect contextual clues. Which is sort of funny, since sometimes these clues are entirely unintentional on the characters' parts, but you know the writer put them in there for you.

I find it very disappointing to see that so many games posted on your site have to be downloaded.
I tried downloading a few times and everytime it froze my computer, so I don't want to do it again. Now frequently I see a game posted only to find out I can only play it by downloading. :(

Hey Sally,

If you haven't noticed, a good majority of games that are on this website are free browser games. It is only on the weekends that Jay and the gang post downloadable games, which I am actually grateful for.

Some independent gamemakers spend years devoting many hours a day to create a game for us to play and deserve recognition through a site like this if there game is a great one like "Emerald City Confidential" or many others.

I was suggest sticking around on the weekdays, and then maybe peeking on over to kongregate or other sights on the weekends when Jay and gang are featuring the downloadable.

I hope I was able to open you eyes a bit... I really am being sincere in this post and I hope I wasn't coming off as rude...

Have a good day, oh, and Great Game by the way!

Hi Bumoftheums, thanks for answering to my comment.
I fully understand and appreciate that creators of these games deserve our gratitude and appreciation for all their hard work and I certainly do. But is that impossible if the game is not downloadable?
I am a member of a great gamesite, and they hardly ever have games that need to be downloaded.
Anyway, it wasn't ment to put Jayisgames down, because I really love coming to this site and have done so for many years (both weekend and weekdays). It was just an observation I made. No offence intended.

Re: Downloadable games.

This blog is about casual games. And that includes, for many people, downloadable games--either games like Peggle that can be picked up and put down any time, or games like this that have a total playing time that is much less than, say, a console game.

JIG can't please everyone... me, personally, I can't stand Nitrome games, and JIG apparently has to write up a glowing review for every Nitrome game that comes out ever. But, I have discovered an amazing secret weapon. It is called the scroll button. When I see something I dislike, I scroll by it. Try it!

Re: Emerald City. I'll download the demo and give it a try, I love noir!

Thanks for the support everyone. ^_^

Trying to please everyone is a losing battle. We just hope the people we don't please at least find something pleasing enough to keep coming back. :)

Sally - just to add, we are working hard to create filters for you to use so that you only see the types of games you're interested in. For example, you will soon be able to set a filter so that if a game is tagged "download" you won't even see it. :)

Joye - While we do have a close relationship with Nitrome, we are by no means obligated to review every game of theirs. In fact, there have been a few games of theirs we have not reviewed. They have a huge fan base, many of which are JIG visitors. When we hold off on a review, we never hear the end of it(!) So, I'm glad you know where your scroll key is. Cheers! ;)

iMacGirl33: I suspect the reason is due to your non-Intel Mac. The Mac games from casualgameplay.com are the same way. Sorry. :(

I didn't skip ALL of the dialogue, I mean I read it, I just didn't listen to it. I clicked through it, so to say. It was a habit from the beginning, when I just had a trial... time conservation, you know. I might put up a walkthrough for the buttons later if someone doesn't beat me to it.

This game is amazing! I really love how it's clear that the creators are really well versed in L. Frank Baum's original works, as the amount of lesser known characters and details is truly amazing. I'm still not done yet, but this was definitely worth the 20 bucks.

This was a great game; it made me think of all those great Sierra Online offerings from the days of VGA monitors. However, I did discover a bug more than half-way through that caused me to restart the game and play it from the beginning. Instructions on how to avoid this are in the spoiler.

There is a scene where you go into an arena and fight another trainee wizard. The other wizard goes first, and he will cast a spell that locks you into a metal box. Use the same escape spell that you used to get out of the castle dungeon and you will win the challenge. That should have been obvious to me, but I took too long and was rejected by Oz as his apprentice.

@Hodag

Did you try to go to back to Woot before you restarted the game? It should work out, that you start at this point over again

Frustrating graphics bug in Mac version, for me at least:
In

both Dee's bedroom and in the town of Flow

, a large vertical bar of the screen is not drawn. Instead it just shows some garbled version of either a place I've been recently or pieces of other applications I have open on my computer.
I suspect it has something to do with Mac OS Spaces (multiple desktops). Very frustrating, because the art is nice, and it makes it hard to navigate.

Finished the game!

First, I thought the in-game hint system was really great. With games like ECC, I really don't want to have to pause the game, minimize it, open up Firefox, and search for a walkthrough if I get stuck. That's one of the things I disliked about Return to Ravenhearst and those kind of games... that the only option was SKIP PUZZLE. ECC actually gets the concept of having multiple hints that get more and more obvious. I never had to leave the game. Great job!

The voice acting is also top-notch. I especially liked Tik Tok.

I disliked that there's no way to go back and look for the last buttons that one missed EXCEPT to play the entire game again. Really, would it kill developers to allow us to have save files like the old days? Maybe I want to watch that cut scene again! That's something that ECC gets wrong that RtR does too, and so does most of the new hidden object and adventure games coming out now. Why do manual saves and automatic saves have to be mutually exclusive?

Some plot discussion, and a few gripes:

When I saw the "evil scarecrow" sketch, I was convinced that the twist ending was going to be that the Scarecrow was actually evil and was selling everything out to the Phasfasms to get Ozma out of the way and regain the throne while looking like a martyr. Which would have been a pretty cool plot, so I was pretty cheesed off when I thought the sketchbook had spoiled me. Luckily that's not the way the plot turned out.

Now, the way the plot DID turn out. Actually... it didn't satisfy me much. Alright, I get it, you have to leave room for a sequel, but it seemed like there was no growth or change in Oz at all. It seemed rushed. It's not that I was expecting answers to all the mysteries or explanations as to why every single character is an unfeeling bastard (the game is noir, after all) but at some point it just wears on one's senses. Which I guess is part of noir and neo-noir movies, like Chinatown but... I don't play casual games to get a Chinatown ending where everyone continues to be an amoral bastard, you know? I mean, Petra does get her Deus ex photograph little brother, which is all very sweet, but if there is a sequel I don't see how long that's going to last, and in the mean time Oz is still being controlled by Ozma, Jinjur, Lion, Dorothy, etc, none of whom seemed to have changed in the slightest, despite Petra's giving them some very good reasons to change and showing them how their actions nearly led to the complete destruction of Oz.

Overall the game is definitely 5/5. The plot sucks you in, the art and animation is fantastic, the puzzles are the right balance of tricky, and the hint system is there for you.

Silly nitpick about walkthrough: it's spelled "Phanfasm."

Also, I remembered just now that I discovered a bug. Nothing major:

If you use the prison escape spell in the last scene, it'll send you outside to the point right before you teleport to the Phanfasm stronghold, but if you use it again, you'll end up right where you left William.

Yes, of course I spoke to Woot again. When I did, I just got the dialog to the effect of "I told you before that you need a coach" but if I try to recruit Oz as my coach a second time, I don't get the required dialog. Trust me, I tried going through everything in that part of the game before giving up and restarting.

While the auto save feature is nice, it might be better if the user could have four or five save slots in addition to the automatic one.

re: iMacGirl33
The game should run fine on your non-Intel Mac. I myself have a non-intel Mac and it works for me (even though I worked on the game I really didn't get to play it until it was published! All the testing builds were for PC!)

What I'm most curious about is how you played Dirty Split! That only has a PC version. So if you played that, why can't you try the PC version of Emerald City Confidential?

As for Nearly Departed's development, right now I'm too busy getting paid to work on games. I am committed to finishing Nearly Departed, but unless someone wants to offer to pay me to work on it it it's going to have to wait a little while longer.

Hi there,

I think I've found a new bug

About Defeat Mombi in the ring:
I did everything, the trainee is gone, I have the sap spell, did the rod, told woot I wanted to fight and convinced him, but didn't end up in the ring.

Now I can't talk to the wizard and woot anymore. Anyone an idea how to fix this?! Because I'm really stuck. Can't do anything without the fight. Thanks!

A frustrating bug in the Mac version.

I'm playing this game for a 2nd time, to get all the buttons. It worked fine the first time around, but this time, whenever Jinjur takes me to the palace, my inventory clears out and I lose my green juice. This makes it totally impossible to move forward.

I don't understand what I'm doing differently from the first time, besides skipping most of the dialogue. Do you guys have any tips?

I've restarted the game once more, now playing it for the 3rd (2 1/2?) time, and it happened again. One minute, the green juice is in my inventory, and then as soon as I'm in the palace, no green juice. Grrr.

Just recently purchased Emerald City Confidential. Really looking forward to playing it because "Wizard of Oz" is my all time favorite movie! Can't even get past Emerald City. After I left Jack, couldn't figure out where to go so I went back to Petra's office. Nothing. Couldn't figure out what to do so I looked for a walkthrough and found this. According to the spoiler, when I went back to Petra's office, Trot should be there. She's not and don't know what to do next. Has anyone had this problem? Any help would be so much appreciated.

@Wendy - Trot

Please try to go back to the docks and see if you really went through the complete conversation with General Jinjur - if so, have a look if you completed all tasks and talk to everyone again, to make sure, you really didn't miss an important clue.

Hope, this works out

So I seriously LOVE this game so far... I'm at the point where I'm:

stuck in the jail, needing to escape

and have run into what has turned into an extremely frustrating glitch, as far as I can tell... I went through it the 1st time on my own, with no result, started the game over since there is no way to backtrack, followed the walkthrough, still no result, restarted again, followed the walkthrough EXACTLY, just in case I hadn't the 1st time, and am still stuck in the same place...

get the spell from scarecrow, get out, get stuff, go back in, get food, throw on wall, turn it green, call tik-tok, but not once has it given me the option to tell him the food is spoiled... I click on yes there's a problem, he says state it, and she immediately says, nevermind, there's no problem...every single time, no matter what I do... GRRR!!!

I'm loving this game and really really want to keep playing, but have no idea what to do at this point...help...? please...?Bueller...?

Thanks Kayleigh for your prompt response. I started all over again. I made sure that I went through every conversation with Jinjur. Went back to Petra's office and no Trot. Where does Trot appear? Thanks again.

Hello Wendy,
that is very strange - Trot should already be in the office, when you come there. When I assume, that you did all the other steps before and didn't forget any steps or conversation options, then there is nothing I can imagine, you could do diffrent.
As this, I only have two more possibilies, you could try - Deinstall the game, download it again from where you purchased it and install the game again. Maybe your version has a glitch.
If this does not work out either, the only other option would be to contact the support of the page, where you purchased the game, to see, if they have a trick to help you with this problems.

Sorry, that I can't be more helpful

I also know I had the dog whistle and that doesn't show up in my inventory either. Just the pumpkin, 2 buttons and the green potion. Is there a way to rotate through the inventory items? What am I doing wrong??

@allison - match making

Did you go through the whole conversation with Shaggy, so that there was nothing left to ask? And did you talk with Prof. Woggleburg before you used the pill-machine? I could imagine, that this both might be triggered to the vocabulary pill.
Did you finish the tasks before? Did you smuggle for the frogman? Getting the medallion from Ms. Aimee and tried to give it to the Tin Can Man?
Maybe one of this things help one of the conversations before was not finished. Try going back and see if there is any, you might have missed

Wow, I just loved this game.
One thing bugged me, though:

After turning Petra into an ornament and talking to Anzel, you can also talk to the mirror, who was also a human at one point. I thought that since the game was so mysterious about who the mirror really was, the answer would be crucial to the plot and the mirror thing would come up again later. (I actually thought that it was Glinda at one point...) But then, after you transform Anzel back, you can never go back to Ruggedo's and talk to her, and she's never mentioned again. I realize she was just a minor character, but I would have liked to see a backstory.
I'm hoping that there will be a sequel and it will involve the mirror as well as finding out some other things, like why Petra hates the Lion so much. But then again, I'm just hoping for a sequel, period. :)

I also agree that this game was not difficult enough to solve, I just wish there were more point and click adventures developed to the same calibur as the monkey island series.

The game did have some redeeming features the story was enjoyable and the graphics were impressively bold, I liked that it was not just based on the origional Wizard of Oz but was clearly influenced by Gregory Maguire's Wiked saga.

Overall I enjoyed the game to watch the story play through, but when you develop a game on a story so unique and work so hard on the graphics you might as well put the extra effort in to produce something as humourous, bizzare, puzzling and as wonderful as Monkey Island.

I was quite disappointed by the gameplay. Although the artwork and the dialogues are quite fun, the puzzles themselves just didn't have the punch to make this enjoyable. I'm comparing this to something like the "Drawn" series which has a relatively linear flow, but here the flow is so limited requiring you to complete just one or at the most 2 tasks at a time that the whole thing felt more like a task in clicking than actual puzzle-solving. I enjoyed the game's look and voice acting, but at the end of the day it's the puzzles that form the meat of the game, and that's sadly been ignored. Hope to see a much better sequel to this next time!
