Unravel a real conspiracy from deep within the CIA’s archives



ABOUT THE GAME

A Hand With Many Fingers is a first-person investigative thriller.
While searching a dusty CIA archive you uncover a real Cold War conspiracy. Every document you find has new leads to research.
But the archive might not be as empty as you think…

  • Slowly unravel a thrilling historical conspiracy

  • Discover new clues through careful archival research

  • Assemble your theories using corkboard and twine

  • Experience a story of creeping paranoia


HOW DOES IT WORK?

The archive is sorted by name, date, and location. Finding new clues requires all three pieces of info (e.g. Frank Nugan, 1980, Australia). Every detail you need to know is hidden somewhere in the archive.
But you’ll only find them if you know who was involved, when it happened, and where it took place.
