2000:1: A Space Felony is a fantastic light-hearted 2001: A Space Odyssey inspired murder mystery adventure that sees you searching for clues aboard a spacecraft where the on-board MAL AI is suspected of murdering all of the crew.
In 2000:1: A Space Felony you are an investigator who is sent to explore and investigate the death of the entire crew on the USS Endowment – a ship that is very much like the ship in 2001: A Space Odyssey and even comes with a “helpful” AI called MAL. It appears that MAL may have had a bit of a melt-down and murdered the crew and you’ll need to question him about it, but first you’ll have to explore the ship and take photos of any evidence that you can use to support your theories and disprove MAL’s lies.
If you’re a fan of 2001: A Space Odyssey then this is a must play as the recreation of the ship interior is incredible and it actually feels like you’re part of a sequel to the movie where you’re sent in to investigate HAL’s meltdown. If you’ve never seen 2001: A Space Odyssey then a majority of the references and in-jokes may be lost on you, but it’s still a fun adventure anyway. It’s a very funny game with lots of witty dialogue and innovative detective-based gameplay. Highly recommended.
