gathering at a secluded mountain resort to spend the night of All Hallows' Eve together.
What was originally intended to be a fun little Halloween party quickly turns into an actual night of horrors.
When one of the attendees is found dead, fear and uncertainty spread as the friends realize they are trapped with a murderer.
As they try to unveil the identity of the killer, they slowly begin to learn
to what atrocities despair can drive a human being... once its trust has been broken.

Rie: "Alrighty! And with that outta the way, let's get into a bit more detail about this visual novel project, starting with the story and setting, of course!"
Rie: "Halloweeeeeeen! The day we all know and love! I’ve decided to throw a really neat Halloween party, and invited a whole buncha my classmates! We’re gonna have a blast and do lotsa scary stuff! And who knows? Maybe someone’s even gonna get murdered!?"
Runa: "D-Don’t say things like that, Miyamoto-san! Not even as a joke!"
Rie: "Aw, c’mon, as if that’d actually happen! We're just gonna have some fun at the majorly awesome Miyamoto Mountain Resort! My dad’s the owner, as you might’ve guessed, and he allowed us to have our little party there! The resort lies rather isolated in the mountains, and there's not even any cell phone reception out there, so that place just begs for a murder to occur, don't you think?"
Runa: "W-Would you stop talking about murder?? I'm already starting to get a really bad feeling about this..."
Rie: "C'mon, I'm just messing with you! Anyways, overall, the Miyamoto Mountain Resort is a pretty nice place and perfect to relax! Or to go on a killing spree!"
Runa: "... ... ..."
Throughout the story, you will be presented with various choices, which will not only contribute towards your Detective Rank, but also influence the story and unlock bonus content upon its completion. And who knows? Maybe you will even be able to save a life!
Furthermore, you will be given the chance to investigate certain locations inside the resort, and interrogate your classmates in order to collect clues and evidence, which will ultimately be used to back up your claims as you solve all the mysteries encountered throughout the night, and reveal the identity of the culprit.
Be careful with your deductions, however, as it is perfectly possible to use your evidence to frame someone completely innocent for the most heinous crimes!
