Lexis Num In Red Johnson's Chronicles, players take on the role of the titular character Red, as he hits the streets of Metropolis to solve a vicious murder. In doing this, players will have to explore a dark world with stunning backdrops as they find and analyze clues in order to solve the murder of the most hated man in town. In addition, players must solve puzzles, question suspects and, when necessary, confront them in breathtaking action scenes.

Throughout his journey, Red will encounter several suspicious characters. From the mysteriously funky informer, to the enigmatically fragile escort girl, to the lazy policeman and the crime genius -- the situations will get sticky, but no stone can be left unturned. Each mysterious figure will play a crucial role in the intricate case players must solve.
