Just on my 4th ever play through of Policenauts and during

Spoiler:
the final shootout with Redwood in the car park Redwood says to Jonathan "No one's ever killed a frozener, maybe you'll be the first"

But Ed killed Redwood's brother didn't he? Shot him dead in front of Marc? it's discussed minutes before this scene. Am I missing something here? Or is this a writing goof?


Sorry if it's been discussed before, I didn't do a search.

Not actually working on the translation, or even playing policenauts more than twice (I should get on that maybe? lol) so my memory is a bit hazy, but consider this...
Spoiler:
The real question is if Tony even knows he had a brother, let alone if Ed killed him.

Yeah, Tony definitely knew 'cause

Spoiler:
Because minutes before the suspected goof I mention above; Jonathan questions Tony's motives and Redwood says he doesn't care for Ridley (his brother) and that he's not "motivated by revenge" he's doing it for the thrill that Jonathan gives him. Redwood later shows a similar amount of coldness just before his death where he admits he knew Chris was his mother, yet still killed her.

Redwood's brother was in fact a frozener...right (it makes sense that he would be, but I can't remember whether he was or not)? I haven't done a playthrough of Policenauts for about two years. However, my gut reaction is that this is just a writing goof.

Um...no explanation?
Your response makes me think this is somehow explained in the Saturn version.

No, you foolish fool, Snatcher got the substance release, Policenauts got the Subsistence release!

Oh, I didn't necessarily want to tell you guys how it should be interpreted. Just that the way I see it, there is an explanation. More than possible one, actually. I thought about this myself when doing the translation.

Spoiler:
For example, Redwood could simply be playing more mind games with Jonathan. Or, since Ridley was using normal red blood instead of white blood at the time of his death, he wasn't considered a true Frozener anymore.
