The Stroke of Midnight [Mystery]

The Stroke of Midnight is a mystery visual novel in a detective style.

Holy shit we actually made it to launch. You can buy the game here:
https://store.steampowered.com/app/8288 ... _Midnight/

The demo can be downloaded for free here:

Synopsis
Rowan Cox wakes up in a barren room, alone with a mysterious girl he's never seen before. He quickly comes to realise that things are very much out of place.
After the prologue, the world is in political turmoil, with major figures dropping dead like flies. Rowan joins his friend's detective agency, and is dragged feet-first into the troubles.

Characters (Left to right)
Image
Stanley Cooper - A friend of Josh's. Very much the strong, silent type.
Chloe Lance - A college friend of Josh, and co-owner of the agency. Despite her relatively open and mocking personality, she keeps to herself a lot.
Josh Butler - Rowan's best friend, and childhood friend. Runs a detective agency with his friend Chloe. Tall, and never seen without his slightly hipster detective get-up.
Dominic King - An old friend of Chloe's, with a fierce intelligence and a wild sadistic streak.
The Girl - I'll leave this spoiler free. Sufficient to say, buckets of fun :twisted:

Some Art
Sorry about the links, the host only allows posting of images up to 800px wide, and I didn't want to reduce the quality of the images.

Congratulations, added to my Steam wishlist!

Can I ask how many words is the script and how many endings has the game got?

It's around 370k words.
We've avoided too many bad endings, but there's 9 proper endings.

Yes indeed, congrats! Is Steam the only place the game is available or is it up on Itch or GameJolt?
