Only into the game for maybe 40 minutes, but it's different. I recommend watching a play-through video to see if it's for you before you spend $25. Don't take this as a negative review...but the game, at least the prologue, is less about finding clues and talking to people than it is about deducting on a separate screen. I do hear it steps up in later chapters.

Is this point and click?

It is point and click, with caveats. You can use the keyboard to move also, and you use a couple of letters to bring up the deduction screen and a profile screen.
