It's a terrifying thought

Boston has seen better days. Lots of protests. Civil unrest. Racial tensions.

This fragment comes from the blurb section on the back of the box of Dig Deeper, the expansion for Detective that takes players to 1970s Boston.

The street date of the expansion is set for June 18th. A few thousand copies already sent to distribution in North America and Europe. More than 10.000 copies of local editions sent to our partners in different countries, including France, Spain, Italy, Germany and more.

You'd probably say it's unfortunate timing for this release. I'd say I am not that sure. I'd say it is terrifying that the story that takes place in 1970 is relevant today, in 2020. I am devastated that 50 years later, we still need to use #BlackLivesMatter to explain fundamental human rights.

I'd say maybe it's not that unfortunate timing. Perhaps it's time to realize that over 50 years not much changed.

It's a terrifying thought, I know.
