Still Life 2 is a 2009 adventure game developed by French company Gameco Studios and published by MC2 France under their Microïds label. It is a sequel to the 2005 game Still Life, and follows on from the characters and themes of 2003's Post Mortem.
The game follows FBI Agent Victoria McPherson in tracking down and stopping a serial killer known as the East Coast Killer. Gameplay has moved to the state of Maine. The game uses the same storytelling device of switching back and forth between two player characters as its predecessor. The second character is one of the killer's victims, journalist Paloma Hernandez, who has been covering the East Coast Killer's crimes, making the game switch between investigation and survival.
A short introduction to the game was posted on August 31, which covers the dates of October 2 and 3, 2008 in the game. It states that on the evening of October 2 the body of a missing person was found on the side of Highway 201, near Jackman. The video which had been sent to the police and the media identifies the killer as the East Coast Killer. McPherson sees Hernandez reporting on the killing on TV and later arranges a meeting. Hernandez is abducted and she wakes up on October 3 in the killer's dilapidated house.
The East Coast Killer allowed Hernandez to call McPherson with clues to the location of the house to trap and kill her, a plan he formed with an ex-marine and former FBI agent Hawker who had been dismissed when McPherson refused to back his claim that killing an innocent person had been justified at the time. Despite being successfully ambushed, McPherson managed to turn the tables and saved herself and Hernandez, but not before nearly a dozen police officers and a rookie FBI agent were killed. Through a series of flashbacks, it was revealed that the Chicago Killer was Richard Valdez, Victoria's boyfriend from the previous game, who turned out to be the grandson of the man Gus was following through Prague.
