Shirubā Jiken is an adventure video game for the Sony PlayStation. It was directed by SUDA51, developed by Grasshopper Manufacture and published by ASCII Entertainment exclusively in Japan on October 7, 1999. The game was reissued through PlayStation Network on December 10, 2008 for the price of ¥473, and earlier in 2000 as part of the ASCII Casual Collection of bestsellers. A later version of the game was completely rebuilt for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS, Linux and PlayStation 4 in other languages. Shirubā Jiken is divided into two chapters, "Transmitter" and "Placebo." The former was written by SUDA51, and involves the affairs of 24 Precinct police detectives in apprehending serial killer Kamui Uehara, who escaped his 20-year detention and has resumed his killing spree. The latter chapter was written by Masahi Ooka and Kato Sako, and revolves around a freelance writer investigating the case.
