please make part 2 of this :)

I looveee itt! Buut is it okay if you make an no RTP version? I would appreciate it! Sayonara!

It was amazing!I really enjoyed but it would crash sometimes and there were a few glitches too.I'm really excited for the future games

Thank you! I'm sorry to hear that the game would crash or glitch. If you have the time, just let me know what version of the game you played or when some of the crashes happened, I'd love to clear that up for you. Thanks for giving my game a try and I hope to see you back for later Cases!

I played the 1.1.1 version.Every time that I would try to investigate an area it would show me the greenhouse area and the screen would freeze for a few seconds.


Thank you for the feedback! I will try to rework those areas and see if I can clean that up in the next update!


There is a new version of the game (v1.1.2) that hopefully addressed the glitches you saw. Thanks again for your help and patience! (see dev log patch notes for v1.1.2 for more detail)

I love this game so much!!! I couldn't leave it alone until I finished it! I really hope you are planning to create more games in this universe! I loved the concept of the gems and changing a murder. Please make more like this. 


I'm so glad you enjoyed playing! I wanted to expand this world and explore more Cases but I wasn't sure if others would find it interesting enough. Your comments will definitely help create more games like this from me. Thank you!

I played a good chunk of this game already and I'm absolutely in love with the universe you've built so far! The art is really pleasing to the eye, and the story has hold on my attention (can't beat a good mystery!).  I hope you do more with, if not the two main characters, the world you've created!

Here's the first part of the chunk that I've played so far!


Wow thank you so much! I love the title of your video haha and it was really fun to see you play my game! I do have loose plans for more Cases in this world so hopefully you will see these characters again in the future! Thanks again for playing!


This is a very good game and we definitely need more in the murder detective genre outside of horror so I'm glad you made this. Overall I really enjoyed the game's protagonist, story and art. I was a bit worried about how Paalm would turn out but he's actually a good character.

My only complaint with the game is a bit of a major one for me though: frequent crashing. I was able to make it through most of the game but some areas are very prone to crashes. I tried redownloading and also tried on a different machine and the following locations are the ones that seem to consistently crash. Some of these I could work around by reloading and seeing if it didn't crash a second or third time but there was one area I was not so lucky with so I unfortunately don't know how the game ends.

Crash areas:
-Gift box area (particularly while opening the gift boxes)
-Entering the Stable
-The pond bench *This is the one place I wasn't able to get past by reloading unfortunately. Without fail, whether i choose to move the trash on top or on the bottom of the bench first, it crashes as soon as the item beneath is revealed.

If you could maybe get those looked into, I'd love to be able to see the ending for myself sometime. I really enjoyed your game.

Thank you for letting me know the areas that are crashing for you, this is the first time someone has reported an issue with that! I will try to get an update soon and see if I can find a way to streamline those areas.

Thanks again for your feedback, there is a new version of the game (v1.1.1) that hopefully erases these problems you had. I updated the code for those areas and refined a few other things as well. (see dev log patch notes for v1.1.1 for more detail)

I just finished up the rest of the game and it was very good. The version 1.1.1 ran with no crashes and actually ran more smoothly in some segments. Thank you so much for getting on this so fast! That really shows your dedication to this project.

Having finished now, my opinion stays mostly the same. I still think this was a great game and putting together the case folder and seeing the ending were very satisfying. If you do make a part 2 I look forward to it. You did great!

This was an incredibly well done game and I enjoyed every second of it. I can't wait for a part two.  Very good pacing, all of the different puzzles to solve were awesome and very creative. Didn't feel repetitive or anything, well done!

I'm so glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for playing!


A really good game, thanks for it !

That was really good even if a bit obvious, I really enjoyed the time I spent, and hope for part 2 soon ! :)

Thank you so much for playing! I'm really glad you liked it. Seeing as this is my first game, I wasn't sure if I should invest more time continuing this story or move on to a new project with what I learned. Your feedback is so helpful! Thanks again!

Well for me, you should do a new case but with the same characters, the idea is really good and characters appreciable, but if you just do the 7 murderer part that will be too obvious, so yeah I would be so happy with a totaly new case ! :D

But with those 2 characters :)

(1 edit)

If you have time, and want, I would love to make a real review somewhere without spoiling here ^^
