Fedora Spade

July 4th, 2018

Fedora Spade is an independent adventure with a detective theme series that is totally free and has a really nostalgic retro-style and makes us remember the games from the classic Carmen Sandiego games!

Fedora Spade is an episodic indie retro adventure series developed by Hardi “Orchard-L” Gosal that was first released in June 14th, 2007 using the Tomato Engine, which was coded by Paul “RinkuHero” Eres, in Game Maker.

Making us remember the Carmen Sandiego series, like we said earlier, Fedora Spade is a typical menu-driven adventure game from the late 80s or early 90s, but with a new type of puzzle. Sometimes, you’ll have to use the evidence you gathered to interrogate a suspect, waiting for him or her to make a slip up, then use the correct evidence to catch the person in his or hers lies.

Each Fedora Spade‘s episodes take 5-6 hours each to finish, though first episode is a prologue and much shorter than the second. You can download all the episodes here for free and get the games’ OSTs, composed by Setu Firestorm, along in the ZIP package.



“Hello there, gumshoe. Fedora Spade’s the name. I’m a dick. What? No, not figuratively. The lady across the street might argue otherwise, but I digress. Anyway, I’m a detective, a homicide detective to be exact. I didn’t grow up wanting to be a detective, mind you. I hated the cops & robbers game… the other kids always forced me to play the bad guy and gave me a good ass-kicking whenever I was caught. Not a very pleasant childhood memory, yeah? But that’s beside the point. I wanted to be an astronaut. I just thought that it’d be neat to explore space, see? But it never happened, as you can probably tell. Math and physics… I can’t say that they’re my favorite subjects.

Plus, watching the challenger explode into a big firework is pretty traumatizing.

So why did I become a homicide detective, you ask? Well, apparently it’s the only job that’s available for me here. Crime’s rampant here in Lawless City, and dead bodies continue to crowd the streets. They need people to combat crime, expendable people; preferably people that aren’t too bright in the head. People with a diploma in sociology, or psychology, or some other I-just-want-to-graduate-quickly major. People from third-rate universities who can’t seem to find a decent job. People like me. It’s dangerous work, but it sure beats flipping burgers. Or is it? I don’t know… it’s too late for regret now.

Anyway, gumshoe, I’ve had my fill of bourbon tonight, and I’m in the mood to talk. Why don’t you sit tight and lend me a pair of listening ears, eh?”
