When the news of Bill Cosby's death in the town of Reality-on-the-Norm shake the nation, Mika Huy - a tabloid photographer - arrives into Reality in order to make a photo of Bill's corpse. But on her way, she comes across some most peculiar individuals and things, and the discovery of Bill Cosby's body might be more breathtaking than she expected...
The game is controlled with a mouse; similarly to Sam & Max Hit The Road, right-clicking changes the cursor action (Walk to, Look at, Interact with, Talk to), while moving the cursor to the top of the screen makes a menu appear, allowing you to easily change the cursor actions, access one's inventory or save/load/quit the game.
The Reality on The Norm (RON) games are a series of short games started by some AGS developers. The idea behinds them is that of sharing characters and setting to create a world that seems more alive than others. A character you meet in one game as an NPC may very well go on a quest him/herself in another chapter, and vice versa. These games are very short, and offer perhaps an hour or less of gameplay. But it's the continuance of the series, and the fact that new games should get released on a rather fast basis, that makes this series unique. Since the games are designed by different designers, they differ a bit in style from chapter to chapter. However, as they share the same backgrounds, characters and overall atmosphere, you'll feel at home in all RON games once you've played one.
RON4: I Spy is in my opinion by far the best game in the series. The plot advances smoothly, the graphics have been improved over it's predecessors, and the game even features a form of multiple endings - thus adding some replayability to it. The game tells the story of a female tabloid reporter, named Mika Huy, who has heard rumors of Bill Cosby being killed in the town of Reality and wishes to investigate them for herself. The game is won after you successfully take a picture of Bill's corpse, but there are three non-vital subquests to be completed as well. Each one involves you taking a picture of something irregular, to sell for large sums of money to the tabloids.
If you download this game, or any other RON game, you should be aware that you're not getting a lot of gameplay for it. You will, however, be adopting a small fun game that has lots of brothers in the pipeline, and a rather alive atmosphere. And well... it's fun playing a short adventure game which you know you'll certainly finish.
