White Paper Games cracks open the case on Conway: Disappearance At Dahlia View

Charlotte May is missing. The eight-year-old girl’s disappearance engulfs Dahlia View and retired investigator Robert Conway can’t leave the mystery unsolved. The ex-gumshoe quickly finds himself caught between two promises: one to Charlotte May’s father, resolving to find the little girl, and one that becomes an even more personal family matter.

Robert’s daughter Catherine is at the beginning of her law enforcement career and working the disappearance case in an official capacity. In many ways she is a foil to her father, particularly in her by-the-book approach. Knowing her father worked as a private investigator, she makes him promise not to get involved. Almost immediately, he betrays his daughter’s trust. Regardless of how you tackle the central mystery, Robert will eventually have to face the consequences of breaking his promise.

The third game from White Paper Games fits neatly into the developer’s hand-crafted ‘Paperverse.’ You don’t need to have played 2015’s Ether One or 2019’s The Occupation before Conway but all three take place in the same universe. Set in 1950s England, Conway is the earliest entry in the timeline chronologically.

Audio-narrative director Nathaniel-Jorden Apostol tells us, “Dahlia View is a very small, contained world and we’ve gone with the idea that it’s a metre wide and a mile deep.”
