Excerpt from the back cover of C.I.T.Y. 2000, mentioning a sequel. Source: MobyGames user game nostalgia.

C.I.T.Y. 2000, also known as City in Trouble Year 2000 is a point and click adventure game with puzzles, developed by Rollogame Ltd. and released in 1993 by Aditus, Inc. You play as Jon Daring, an American secret agent on a mission to stop the evil drug lord S. Rooter from taking control over London. The game uses a classic inventory system and live-action cutscenes.

C.I.T.Y. 2000 itself is not very rare by definition, since few copies can be bought on eBay and Amazon; the game also has been ripped and its digital copy is circulating online. However, the sequel made the next year, entitled C.I.T.Y. 2000 Paris (or City in Trouble Year 2000: Paris) never made its way to the Internet: there are no copies available on any abandonware site, nor on trading or selling websites. There are currently no website clearly documenting this sequel either; in fact, the only proof of existence of

CD-ROMS in Print catalog

C.I.T.Y. 2000 Paris is the CD-ROMS in Print catalog published by Gale Group: the 1996 to 2003 issues all indicate that Aditus published this game in March 1994 - with Jon Daring as main character again.

Very little can be found about the two companies: Rollogame has been involved in the making of at least 3 games (C.I.T.Y. 2000 for PC, Castelian for NES and Dream TV for SNES) and Aditus was a Montreal-based publisher. The sequel to an obscure game can sometimes be even more mystifying - in C.I.T.Y. 2000 Paris' case, the efforts of several collectors haven't reached any fruition yet. it is also in the video game/media burial remember in Kentucky and it was strange it is unknown why????????? go to me in Kentucky to see me look out do not crash go right go dig for it haha
