"The Case of the Cautious Condor" is an adventure game in an interactive comic book style developed by Tiger Media, Inc.. It was one of the first CD-ROM-only games that was furthermore a complete new development for that media and not only a port of another version such as an already existing floppy disc game or a laserdisc arcade machine.

The game was first released for FM Towns in Japan in 1989, later also for CDTV (1991) and DOS (1992). It won several awards, such as "Best Adventure 1989" in Japan.Fact|date=February 2008 The game sold below expectations of the developer also because CD-ROM drives were not yet widespread at that time.

Basically it is a detective adventure game in which with your help, private eye Ned Peters has to figure out the identity of the murderer by wandering around the rooms, looking for clues and overhear conversations between the other guests aboard the Spruce Goose-like flying boat "Condor" on a cruise over the Atlantic. The game has no text because all the dialogue is being played from the CD and the interface is completely mouse-driven.

Tiger Media released later a similar game called Murder Makes Strange Deadfellows.
