Professor Walter Patterson has a brilliant mind, short temper and limitless ambition to be the leader in stem cell and cloning research. He also has at least one deadly enemy. Less than 24 hours after his patent for a secret process is approved, Professor Walter is found dead in his laboratory next door to his former place of employment American technological University. Walter had been fired days earlier which negated the university's contract to share in the profits if his research panned out. Whodunit? Why?
After engaging in discussion and research about cloning, players take the roles of various characters to function as both suspects and investigators to get to the bottom of the death of research scientist Dr. Walter Patterson.
