You hate your job. Your relationship is on the rocks. We won’t even get into your financial woes. Obviously something has to change. What you need is to inject some excitement into your life. The only logical thing to do is to become a private investigator!
In Hardboiled Follies, you take on the role of a completely unqualified amateur detective. You and your friends avoid your real problems by taking on cases and going undercover to solve mysteries. Opposing you are the trained and licensed professionals of the Columbia Detective Agency. They urge you to stop what you’re doing before someone gets seriously hurt. Therefore, you know they just hate having competition.
