Romance Detective [Comedy][GxG][NaNoRenO 2014]

Swaggering forward with a rose clenched firmly in her teeth and her fedora tipped low over her sunglasses, Romance Detective is here to solve the case. No murders or deaths in the sweet town of Lovebloom, however. Instead, Romance Detective (and her confused partner Romance Cop) tackles the case of the missing vase, which on the side is stamped proudly with a giant heart. Romance Detective might not be certified, she might not have anything to go off of, but she knows that this was definitely a crime of passion.

-- The game has 1 ending and 7,388 words. --

I haven't made this game, merely translated it into HTML. I would still advice you to play the web version though ;)

I can see it the traffic stats that many people played the online version and were interested enough to keep playing for almost an hour (in average). Surely even more people played the downloadable version. But there is still no feedbacks :cry:

I know I'm not the game author, even if I spent a lot of time working on it. NomnomNami is shy and that's why I'm posting this game here for her. As I am, she's definitely interested in your feedbacks so don't hesitate to tell what you think of the game! Maybe that will make her to overcome her shyness ;)

It's been a while since I played this, so I don't remember the details all that well... But I do remember it being thoroughly entertaining, for what that's worth.

Also, the ending -
a bit jarring in how quickly it happened, but... yeah, I was cheering for it.

Ahah, I've already played this before so I opted not to play the web version. The new GUI looks really nice, it's a big step up from the original game! Good work <3 I tend to prefer downloaded versions in general, so I can play when my internet is down.

Well I am surprised, I found this quiet cute and campy. That artwork worked perfectly with the story telling. This had more of a KN feel than a VN, I do like branching options, but the narrative keep me pulled in so kudos. I am actually eagerly awaiting the sequel to this.

Oh yeah, great job with your web versions of Nami's games! I'm really glad that you're making her games accessible to more people!
Things I've worked on:
- KAIMA Soundtrack (dark RPG with multiple endings, game by NomnomNami here)
- Her Tears Were My Light Soundtrack (NaNoRenO 2016, yuri game with time travel and cute artwork, game by NomnomNami here)
- Abandoned Building Quest (NaNoRenO 2016, weird adventure game with battles and chiptune music)
