Yousei [Murder Mystery][Supernatural] (Complete)

#1 Post by sake-bento » Thu Jul 12, 2012 4:46 pm

Yousei is a murder mystery game, and the third in the Jisei series (preceded by Jisei and Kansei).

Completed Thread: http://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewto ... 11&t=19187

11-24-2012 - Wow, it's been nearly two months since I held auditions. o_o We're not yet finished with recording, so I haven't posted a public castlist, yet. There are only two major characters left, though, then all the extras. Anyway, pre-orders are up. For $15USD, you get two wallpapers and access to the beta version. For the first week, 30% of the proceeds will be donated to the Red Cross. bo_o

Edit: If you haven't played the first two, they're $15 apiece, but if you go to this page and use the code CM2012 you can get them both for $20 total.

For the past few years, Kangai has been a wanderer, but his return to his hometown has triggered a series of deaths linked to his past. He joins a group of psychic teenagers who solve mysteries under the watchful eye of the government. In Yousei, he and his group are sent undercover to a local university where they must dig up the remains of a top secret experiment. Upon arrival, they discover the project lead missing, and an old acquaintance racing them for the same information.

Image
Kangai
A teenager with the ability to relieve the dying moment of any corpse he touches. He's understandably moody, but he seems to hold a special value for life.

Image
Detective Gurski
A local detective who used to work a much larger city. He was transferred to Edgewater as punishment for reasons unknown. Serious and somewhat cynical. He's in charge of making sure the kids don't get into too much trouble.

Image
Naoki
A shy boy with an eidetic memory. Naoki is eager to please, and the most sympathetic member of the group. Because of his ability, he does most of the legwork and initial scouting for the group.

Image
Aki
The leader of the group. She can project the thoughts of anyone she touches, and she generally acts as the mission leader. Fiercely protective of her younger brother. She likes to make punny jokes, but they're usually not that good.

Image
Li Mei
A quiet girl who absorbs the emotions of everyone around her. The subject of her past is taboo, but she seems to have an unnatural interest in death.

--

Final game will include:
-Voices
-An off switch for voices, should they not be your thing
-Four endings
-Art by Deji
-OST by Marc Conrad Tabula
-At least one murdered character - possibly more!
-In game notes and hint system
-Extra stuff

Chance is back, and she says she wants to help. Oh dear.

There's an option to make Kangai wear glasses if you want him to. Just for looks.

Hm, the setting sounds a bit like Ghost Trick, just with an main character that is much more...alive xD

But sounds really interesting and your art is really awesome (even though I already noticed that in RE:Alistair).
Can't wait for the first demo :3

Really excited for this!
I want to be a beta-tester too... :)
I've been a beta-tester before, since I helped the beta-testing of Lucky Rabbit Reflex~ Does that qualify ._.

The beta for the demo will go up within the week. I'll invite people to beta test the full version based on the feedback I get from that.

Yes! Part III! I've been waiting with baited breath since finishing the first two. Definitely my favorite VN series so far.
The best reason to get up in the morning is to outdo yourself: to do it better than you've ever done it before. But if you haven't done it better by nightfall... look at your globe and pick a spot: it's always morning somewhere.
