Snatcher was a killer app for the Sega CD, too bad nobody cared about it at the time. While Snatcher moved on to cult status in America, Hideo Kojima (the creator of Metal Gear Solid) was working on the spirited sequel, Policenauts. Policenauts is an adventure game where you play as Jonathan Ingram, a space colony officer who is presumed dead in 2013. His body was found in 2040 and through a cold sleep function in his suit he is alive. When he gets back to Earth he meets his wife who has now remarried and his first case is tracking down her new husband. Konami had some plans to bring Policenauts out for the Saturn, but it never came to fruition. After five years of hard work the group at JunkerHQ.net announced that they have completed translating the text into English and a patch should be ready in the second half in 2007. Policenauts is a missing gem if you’re into the adventure genre, so if you’ve just finished up Hotel Dusk pick up a copy of Snatcher to get yourself ready for Policenauts.
