Badass Daddy's Bitcoins 3D Game

The pitch

“As a member of Europol – Financial Fraud Section, you are urgently contacted by the director of the Athens office to join an investigation into the activities of a notorious antiquities dealer named Badass Daddy.
Arrested a few months ago in Athens, it seems that he has been contacting members of his team to conduct transactions from his hideout in Paris, where you are. The director of the Athens office suspects Badass Daddy of trying to launder the money he illegally obtained via bitcoin transactions. If Badass Daddy’s gang manages to launder his money via bitcoins and get it back in cash, then it will be impossible to trace and recover.
The director of the Athens office thus gives you this important mission: go to Badass Daddy’s hideout and try to track down the illegal money and arrest the criminals before it’s too late.”

This is the setting for the game. Accompanied throughout the game by the director of the Athens office via cinematics, you will have to go to Badass Daddy’s hideout, search the different rooms for clues and solve puzzles to find the money and arrest the criminals.
