When you say murder mystery, what kind of tone are you going for? A classic Cluedo, something more dark and oppressive?

@Hazel-Bun Thank you very much! Some CGs are coming soon!

@SixOfSpades Thanks for your question! I guess it's more of a psychological story about people's dark sides which are hard to see if you're not looking.

And the first CG is done. Behold some siblings love! Though it maybe a very deceptive feeling...

Your project seems pretty interesting, and the art is nice, too. Nice CG up there!

Just want to say, though...
the title seems like it's saying Dan killed Jess- since they're dating and all, it would be a "deadly attachment. I'm hoping I'm wrong and this is a red herring...
My first completed visual novel, which is at 1.3, it's final version(woo hoo!): Monster Uses CPU 2
Finally at version 1.0: White Fog

You might ask yourself: If I could only save one paragraph of the work I'm writing, which one would I save?
Which one would I let go first?

@Haze Thank you! Well the story is pretty short (3800 words) so I'd hate to spoil anything. I hope it'll be still enjoyable ^___^''

Here's the first screenshot! What do you think about colors? I've been checking images on different devices, and on some of them they look too bright (on samsung note, for instance).

I'm not a big KN fan, but holy schmao-zow, this looks great!
I'd totally download it!

Your artwork is gorgeous, and I always get a kick out of whodunit mysteries (as long as they're not predictable).

Can't wait for the release of this game! :P

Thanks a lot, @Ferdokki

The game's almost completed. It took longer than I thought cause our programmer was busy and I had to do the coding myself (>_<) Unfortunately I simplified the GUI, but I hope it won't look too bad...

Anyway here's a second CG, the last I can show

Oooh!! Mystery! I must follow this unrelentingly. I think the art style is completely perfect for the genre! Mystery is a very tricky undertaking for a first project especially, so I really admire you guys for going for it! I'll be looking very forward to playing this! Yay!

Also, hope you guys at Dotama Studios have a Merry Christmas! :D
