The concept looks promising! Mystery remains my favorite genre, although this setup leans towards horror. So far all characters sound interesting.
Usually I'm biased towards appearance, but they are hidden here, which pokes my curiosity. The artstyle fit your concept so well! I like the details
and sketch style.
I would absolutely play this game. Looking forward to your progress!
There aren't specific features I want to see, as I've mostly played 'traditional' VN style games with minimum features. Anything extra is a bonus.
Original soundtrack is a bonus too. Random soundtracks of internet often doesn't match well.
Mystery is my favorite genre too! There might be horror elements in this one, but they take second priority to the suspense. I plan to bank on mind games and psychological atmosphere here so I hope you enjoy it once it's out! I'll also be uploading some character sprites once the art is done so you'll be able to pick out your fave! ^0^
Oh please do monitor our progress Pinlin! I'd love to hear your thoughts about it!
Here's what we've accomplished:
• UI Draft for Preference Menu, Save, Load submitted; design concepts approved
• Finished character design for Dumah, Locksmith, Glasseye and Hidari
• First Draft of Main story (excluding endings) submitted for alpha test; working on revisions
• Programming story into Ren'py: including text styles, narrative pacing and choice branching.

Also, sketches for our two dashing dudes, Locksmith and Hidari:
Locksmith, as is his namesake, is pretty good at keeping secrets locked. Getting to him will reveal more than you’d ever like to know. He won’t make it easy for you, but maybe with the right “motivation”, he’ll have no choice but to show his cards.
Hidari’s name came from the Japanese term for “left”, and the adage “Let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth” to hint at the duality of Hidari’s nature.
These two guys are always at odds with each other because they are at the separate ends of a spectrum. One’s cold and one’s warm, one’s as blunt as a hose pipe, while the other’s as charming as pie. One of them will always lie, one will always tell the truth.
But when it really comes down to it, who is more trustworthy? It’s up to you whose words you’re going to believe.
Next week, we’ll get to know our two other lady characters, Glasseye and Abel. Hope you stick around!
