Either I am crazy or...

 

Didn't this game come out on the Atari 8 bits? and didn't it also come with a ton of pack in stuff (clues. a poster etc) like the infocom games?

I remember when I owned this that it had a lot more than what I am seeing online now a days.

It was produced by Freefall and published by EA in one of the LP style gatefold sleeves. The game came with a manual and the disk. Nothing additional.

 

[edit ] - I'm specifically talking about the Atari 8bit version, which was the first.

Man I thought something else came with it...like a map of the blimp and whatnot...clues and stuff.

maybe I am thinking of another game mixed with this game?

 

This game...I played this game back in the day like the way i play BIOSHOCK and ARK now.....like a religion

Small sidenote,

 

if you like that murder-mystery or detective genre, here are some programs of the same genre:

 

- Clue (known as Cluedo in Europe):http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-400-800-xl-xe-clue_21521.html

- Inspector Clewso: http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-400-800-xl-xe-inspector-clew-so_2585.html

- Murder at Awesome Hall: http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-400-800-xl-xe-murder-at-awesome-hall_3608.html

- 221B Baker Street and Case Libraries: http://www.atarimania.com/list_games_atari_search_50.50.49.66._8_G.html

- Sherlock Holmes (german, no download available as of yet): http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-400-800-xl-xe-sherlock-holmes_4628.html

- Sherlock Holmes and...: http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-400-800-xl-xe-sherlock-holmes-and-the-case-of-the-elementary-rescue_4629.html

(probably just a text-adventure)

- think I have a murder/detective game in my collection that is either named Sherlock Holmes or just Holmes...

- Detective (ASP software) and Arthur Davis Detective Encounter Series: http://www.atarimania.com/list_games_atari_search_68.101.116.101.99.116.105.118.101._8_G.html

(Arthur Davis Detective not available for download yet)

- Time to Kill: http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-400-800-xl-xe-time-to-kill_5390.html

and maybe a few others...

Perhaps there were a few different releases of the game. Some with just the manual, some with extras.

I'm quite sure a friend of mine bought it for his 400 (possibly on cassette) back in the day, and it was notable because it came with several souvenirs or clues.
