1888 - Whitechapel, London
The night is covering its alleyways with a dark cloak, leaving only a few areas lit by the gaslights.
Eight investigators have come together to track down Mr Jack, still at large.
Mr Jack is very clever, though: he is pretending to be one of them...
Mr. Jack is an asymmetric game for two players. Each player has a different aim. One takes on the role of the Detective, the other Mr. Jack. The Detective must unmask Mr. Jack's cover and then catch him. Mr. Jack will try to use the cover of darkness to slip away while doing his best to slow down the investigation.
The goal of the player who plays "Jack" is to escape the investigator before dawn or to leave the district by taking advantage of the darkness. For the player who is "the detective", his goal is to uncover which investigator Jack is impersonating and to catch him before dawn.
