Play it here!


When a popular illustrator is found dead, disgraced demonologist Harold Ludicael is hired to summon her ghost. But he’s hiding a secret:

Ghosts are as fake as all the other lies coming out of Ludicael's mouth.

We hope you enjoy our Edwardian-inspired visual novel with creeping monsters, summoning magic, and a cast with Queer main characters. It has:

-Over 20,000 words

-Point and Click Investigation

-Traditionally painted watercolor characters and locations

-A journal which keeps track of a colorful list of suspects and lore

-A content warning document, so you have control over whether or not you want to read warnings

-Good and Bad Endings

We're making this for the 3rd Annual Spooktober VN Jam, so if you enjoy it, there are a lot more games that other people submitted, too! There are prizes for people who play the games, too, so if you're interested in streaming this, we encourage you to do so!

Oh, gosh. I love everything about this! The style of the art looks phenomenal and something I've at least never personally seen in another VN before. Really loving the design of the two characters in the title shot, too. Super intrigued and will definitely be downloading this to check it out!

Hey thank you! The two main characters have been a pair that I’ve really been wanting to work with for a while. And I really appreciated that the team supported me in the visual design I did for the look of the game; I tried a limited color palette that was really different from my usual bright stuff.

Anyway, if you do play and have any crit, feel free to post it, it would be much appreciated! We want to keep getting better with every game.

Thank you to everyone who played the jam version of Serialized Killer! We're pleased to be presenting the 1.0 version of the game, which includes:

-Minor graphical tweaks, including the ability to have Harold shut his stupid mouth!

-Text Edits

-Full journal functionality

-And new endings! Before, we'd just had the true ending and one generic bad ending. But now, each incorrect culprit has a different short ending of their own.

Also, the winners of the Spooktober Jam were announced, and we were deeply honored to learn that we'd made it onto the shortlist! That's an amazing feeling, and it thankfully gives me one less cool game on my to-play list. As you can imagine, I've played through this one quite a lot already.
