WASD to move, SPACE to interact, Mouse to select options + drag icons

Ponch: Cyberspace Investigator is a 2.5D cyber noir detective game that explores the nuanced identities of lesbians of color and their resistance in a post-globalist, cyber dystopia. 

Set in the virtual metropolis of CITYB, you play as Ponch: a dirt-poor private eye who runs her illegal practice out of the basement of an abandoned funeral home. Earn your keep and take to the streets – squeeze through alleyways, press VIPs for details, and reveal CITYB's dirty little secrets by infiltrating a network of cyber-consciousness called MIND.SPACE.
