Description from the packaging.

Deadline, the first great mystery of the computer age, initiates you into the genre of real-life adventure. When you take on Deadline, you're not just pitting yourself against a 12-hour time limit to solve one of the cleverest and most baffling cases in the annals of criminology. You're encountering a totally original concept in interactiveness that literally puts the case in your hands. Working from an actual dossier on the crime and piecing together the myriad of clues along the trail, you face a challenge so sophisticated that your suspects possess independent, flesh-and-blood personalities. And some of those personalities are so treacherous that, should you make the wrong move, one of them may do you in.
