Try and find the whereabouts of the missing reporter and his assistant

Product Information


Journalist, Jack Lorski, and his companion Karen Gijman disappear while investigating a string of gruesome murders. Soon after their disappearance, Jack’s agency receives a disturbing CD-ROM containing footage he captured during his investigation. More than just a CD, this disc is in-fact the beginning of a terrifying game with a maniacal killer known only as “The Phoenix.”  You will analyze video excerpts, photos and sound tracks, and piece together evidence to find Jack and Karen!  An investigation on the fringe of reality!


Product Highlights

On November 2nd of last year, Jack Lorski informed SKL Network executive directors Arnaud Ivan, Stéphane Karlsberg and Marie Liloux of his intention to follow up on an investigation that could lead to a prime-time exclusive. He was given the administrative go-ahead and allocated a credit line.

On December 7th, following the in-house procedure, Jack gave Marie Liloux a detailed verbal account. He was evidently trying to uncover links between a number of murders and/or suicides committed in at least 5 different countries (France, Greece, Czech Republic, Britain and Italy). In his report, Jack spoke of an amateur super-8 film which he had come across by chance and which had sparked off the whole investigation.

On February 4th, Jack sent in his expenses, along with those of Karen Gijman. The letter containing the receipts was posted in Venice.

Since then, contrary to the procedure, which requires updates at least once a month, we have had no contact with either Jack or Karen.

On March 12th, the police officers in charge of the investigation searched Jack's barge, moored on the Seine by the Ile Saint-Denis. There, they discovered a super-8 film, which might be at the origin of his investigations. They have authorized us to make it public.

On 1 October, Arnaud Ivan received an apparently recent photo of Karen Gijman at his home address, showing her in a weakened condition and obviously terrified. The photo was accompanied by a threat signed "the Phoenix", which we consider to be authentic.

On 3 October, Arnaud Ivan received a video clip filmed by the kidnapper. Given the particularly distressing nature of the video, we thought it preferable to publish just a short extract.

On 8 October, Arnaud Ivan received a new package sent from Bologna in Italy, containing a strange CD-ROM apparently designed as a game. As we are at a complete loss as to how this program can be decrypted, we have decided to distribute it to the public with consent from the police and thereby increase our chances of finding clues inside that might give us a lead on Jack and Karen's whereabouts.
