Police Quest IV: Open Season was the fourth game in the Police Quest series. It was the first game by ex-LAPD police chief Daryl F. Gates, who would act as the principal consultant for the SWAT series. Rather than focusing on Sonny Bonds from fictional Lytton, CA, Police Quest IV follows a Los Angeles police homicide detective named John Carey. He has to investigate a series of murders which seem to be completely random and not connected to each other.

Simultaneous speech and subtitles

Certain CD versions of Sierra SCI games had both speech and text resources. In ScummVM, it is possible to enjoy a combined mode, where both speech and text are shown at the same time.

Either speech only or text only can be selected from the game's settings dialog. Only ScummVM's audio options can be used to enable text and speech mode.
