In Red Johnson’s Chronicles, players take on the role of Red, and must investigate a crime that could have been committed by almost anyone in the city. In his quest to solve the murder of a man who turns out to be one of the most hated people in town, Red finds no shortage of suspects, but must gather clues, solve puzzles and interrogate witnesses to find the murderer and obtain a confession.
Throughout Red’s investigation, he encounters suspects around every corner, including two disconcerting women – Theresa and Sonia. Theresa is a middle-aged woman who not only comes across as cold and strange, but also seems to know more about the murder than what she’ll admit.Sonia, on the other hand, is an attractive, young call girl, whose reputation around town often precedes her. She, too, is believed to know more about the Metropolis murder than she first lets on, and it’s up to Red to learn from these women what they were really up to the night of the murder.
