Sunday, September 12, 2010

When a body is found at the Kaseki Residence, once home to a world-renowned paleontologist, rookie officers Keiichi Genba, Himatsu Mizu, Rei Shirayuki and Dr. Shinketsu Kikai
are tasked with investigating the scene.

Not only do they need to uncover the identity of the victim
and reconstruct the events leading up to his untimely death…

They will also need to learn how to effectively work as a team in order to do so.


  • 4 Playable Characters through whose eyes the story will be told, each one specializing in another crucial area of crime scene investigation.
  • Interactive Gameplay Elements which will change depending on whose role you assume.
    Whereas one of the officers will take care of interviewing the parties involved, for example, only the medical examiner may interact with the body and determine the cause of death.
  • Create Bonds with your teammates by getting closer to them and learning about their pasts and motivations.
  • Digital Notebook which summarizes the story’s progression, provides you with additional info about the case and characters, and gets frequently updated to help you keep track of gathered clues and evidence.
  • Different Endings depending on who you select as the culprit, so be careful with your deductions, as you might end up framing someone completely innocent!
  • Unlockable Extras including a gallery and more.
  • Original Soundtrack composed by Solo Acapello (check out some BGM samples here).
  • Demo:

    This demo contains the prologue and about 60% of the first chapter.
    It amounts to approximately 26,000 words, with a playtime between 2 - 3 hours,
    depending on your reading speed and how thorough you are.

    Its main purpose is to introduce the basic premise and major characters,
    while giving you an idea of the feel and direction of our new project.
    And, of course, to hopefully provide us with some useful feedback in the process!
