The Scoop is a mystery adventure game published by Telarium (formerly known as Trillium), a subsidiary of Spinnaker Software, in 1986 for Apple II and rereleased by Spinnaker Software in 1989 for DOS.[1]

The plot is based on the collaborative detective novel of the same name, written in 1931 by Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers, E.C. Bentley, Anthony Berkeley, Freeman Wills Crofts and Clemence Dane.

Gameplay[edit]

The player impersonates a journalist working for the down-on-its-luck newspaper "The Daily Courier". He is sent to investigate two murders which may, or may not, be connected. The player has five days to solve the crimes and provide enough evidence to lead to an arrest, otherwise "The Daily Courier" will go out of business.

NPCs in the game have a set routine and go about their business in different locations, meaning the player will sometimes have to follow them and eavesdrop on their conversations in order to collect clues.

Because of the short time limit to solve the crimes, the player will often have to restart the game entirely in order to get everything done on time.

The Scoop is nominated as a Top Dog on the Home of the Underdogs website.
