Sleuth: Cities of Mystery Expansion Launched

February, 2005

What: A major expansion to Sleuth
When: Wednesday, February 16th, 2005

Hypothetical Software is proud to announce the upcoming release of a major expansion to Sleuth: Cities of Mystery. Cities of mystery will expand the game world to include 4 complete cities, each with their own inhabitants, political factions and special locations. Subscribers will be able to travel between cities in search of new skills, equipment, and more valuable treasures.

More Daily Mysteries: Subscribers will be allowed to play 10 mysteries a day instead of 8.

Travel: Traveling between cities will require an investment of both time and money. In addition to the cost of the ticket, a detective will have to spend a certain number of turns (daily mysteries) to make the trip. The further apart two cities are, the longer the trip will take, and the more it will cost.

Agencies: Agencies will be based in one of the four cities. When a member of an agency is traveling in a different city, they will not have access to the agency equipment locker, case files, office safe or treasure room. Directors will be able to move agency headquarters to a different city. If an agency moves, all of the equipment stored in the locker can be shipped to the new city.

Contacts: Each city will have its own set of residents. Detectives will need to forge new relationships if they want to be fully effective in a new city.


  • Four complete cites to explore: New York, London, Shanghai and Delhi
  • Three new political factions to ally yourself with or against
  • New skills and Equipment
  • More difficult and valuable treasure hunts
  • Harder Level Mysteries
  • More Daily Mysteries
