Description

Mr. Jack in New York - Danger lurks in the streets of New York. Can you corner Jack the Ripper and save the day? or will Jack get away to kill another day?

London - November 19, 1888.

As part of the case of Jack the Ripper, Francis J. Tumblety, quack doctor, was arrested and released on bail. He immediately fled to the United States.

New York - Manhattan Island - January 1889.

Alerted by London, New York police launch a search for Tumblety. Some witnesses have reported his presence in Manhattan and crimes similar to those in London are committed. The police then called the most distinguished citizens of the city to assist in their inquiry. Is Tumblety really Jack? If not, where is he hiding? These are the issues of Mr. Jack in New York.

2 players with 8 characters. One of them runs a race against time to uncover the truth of who the Ripper really is. The other works to escape and to distract everyone from the fact that he is the shadow in the night that strangles these far from innocent women. As only one accusation is possible throughout the whole game, players need to pay close attention to who is in the shadows and who remains in the light.

Mr. Jack in New York is a standalone game using similar mechanisms to the original game. It cannot be combined with Mr. Jack or the extension.
