A clue

Tex Murphy's Mean Streets.  Played it on my friend's Amiga PC as a yout.  A noir detective story in the near-future, Tex runs around in a hovercar meeting dames and taking memos.  Something about this was elusive and captivating; Tex's world of eternal night; maybe it was light filtering through the Venetian blinds portending the quintessential detective dank and smoky office; the anti-hero deciding whether he should sleep in his chair and... oh, what's that knock at the door?
