Interactive. Shadowy. Silly.

No one said being a pwivate eye was pwetty…Butt Kapinski returns to Coho with this gender-confused film noir murder mystery. Join Butt in a seedy world of sex, sin, shadows and subterfuge as you play in a world of dark dreams and bad similes. An interactive comedic experience for grown-ups only.
