Wait, let me write that down in my ‘Investigate Note’ book

Remember how I said (in this post) that I was going to buy copies of J.B. Harold Murder Club and Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego at some point? Well, I did–shortly after publishing that post, in fact–and both games arrived on my doorstep a few days ago.

My favorite part of this two-piece package: The embossed, leather(ish)-bound “Investigate Note” book that came with the copy of J.B. Harold Murder Club.

Here’s the front cover of said book:

And here’s the back:

 

As is usually the case with such things, I can’t understand a word of what’s written in this more-than-a-manual. That’s OK, though, because the game itself is completely understandable (thanks to its English language option).

And the award for ‘Worst Box Art Ever’ goes to …

… the PC Engine port of Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego.

OK, so it’s probably not the worst piece of box art ever, but it’s still pretty bad.

That said, I think I’m going to pick up a copy of the game soon (along with a copy of the Japanese version of J.B. Harold Murder Club). I have fond memories of playing through Where in the World… (on a Mac, I think) as a teen, and I’d kind of like to give it another go as an old man.
