It was my favourite game for some time, though my all-time favourite game remains another by Delphine, "Another World" ;)

Cruise for a corpse had excellent atmosphere and a cinematic film, along with nice music.

I had it for the ST and remember being absolutely blown away by the graphics in the intro. For some reason I never really played the game itself much. Pretty sure you can pick it up as Abandonware nowadays?

No, but I read about it on this blog. I did play Future Wars, by the same studio.

^Future wars is older, and imo from before the time Delphine really became notable.

The intro was awesome for the time, yes. Best intro i had seen on Amiga as well :D

Delphine had the best art. :)
I didn't get too far in Cruise for a Corpse, because I think some things in the game were random - some doors open at different times. It was kind of annoying.

That is a pretty cool intro. The dude has some heavy duty calves, he must work out.  :P

There were (iirc) 12 suspects. I recall that I couldn't overrule anyone, apart from the one who actually ended up being guilty! (laugh)

Delphine had some of the best music ever to come out of a PC speaker (and bear in mind this was before the age where everybody had a sound card). The soundtrack of Future Wars is an amazing accomplishment for its time.
