My first finished game. A crime scene investigation game.
The FBI gets a call at 1:05am, August 10th, 2010. ''H-hello? Is this the FBI?'' ''Yes, ma'am, what's wrong?'', The cop who answered the phone asks. ''I just found m-my husband... dead!'' ''Calm down, ma'am, please tell me exactly who you are, who's dead and where you live, and we'll send someone to investigate it.'' ''O-Okay... I'm Salina Ral, I found my husband Jacob Ral's body in the living room... We live at Ral Castle, near Washington.'' ''Are you reporting a murder, or does it look like your husband died of natural cause?'' ''H-he's been murdered... Y-You s-see... He is decapitated...'' ''We'll send someone over there as soon as possible, that will be around... 7am, all right?'' ''A-All right...''

Jake Willows, a detective in-training, who's failed his final exam three times already, gets assigned to the task of finding the culprit, with the warning he can't fail again or he'll be fired. Every detective should have someone to rely on, right? That's where you come in. Find the culprit... Don't let him get away...

Characters in the game will not be told about due to not wanting to spoil anything :-)

Forgot to mention this in-game.

I'm trying very hard to finish this game, but I'm afraid of trying to much and not being able to.

One bug I found is:
(SPOILER)

After I talk to Arthur, show him the yearbook and THEN the medical papers, he asks for evidence he put the papers that day. Whatever evidence I show, nothing happens, except from that psych block image appearing again. He doesn't say anything. It's probably a bug. Will it get me stuck?

Nothing reveals Humanity so well as the games it plays. A game of betrayal, where the most suspicious person is brutally murdered? How savage.

Have you tried ALL evidence?
It's not that, it's a bug. I show him the yearbook, then the medical papers, and when I'm to show the last evidence, no matter what I put, the game kinda freezes.

It didn't fail when I tried it on my computer. I'll upload it again, also, could you tell me when exactly after presenting the evidence it bugged?

Just reuploaded the file. Hope it works now. If not, please tell me so!
The download says it's temporarily unavailable.

What happens is: I talk to the guy, I present him the yearbook, then the medical papers, and when he asks for the evidence showing that he was there that day, whatever I type, nothing happens. The dialog stops, the music is cut, and that thing on top of the guy is still there, and it moves as I move... like this:



If I talk to him again, there's a brief pause, then the dialog starts all over... but it never finishes.

Hmmmmmm. The moving of the picture is possibly due to the fact he puts it at a certain spot on the screen, not the room. Have you tried talking to him from different angles? (up,left,down) It could be due to a mistake of mine while creating the game. If it doesn't matter at all which angle you try it from, I'm afraid I can't solve this problem... I'm sorry... I'll try all angles myself.

I think I found the problem!
Where it should give you a 100% punishment when you answer wrong, it doesn't do anything!
Of course, this wouldn't explain the bug for 1 certain piece of evidence... Are you sure it's ALL evidence you've checked?
Well, you just said what happened. It doesn't do anything. Whatever evidence I choose, even 000000, I get the same result. Should something different happen if I use the CORRECT evidence? Because I tried others.

I've reuploaded the game. If you use a certain piece of evidence, which I'm not going to spoil unless you ask me to, you should be able to continue. Also now, you're not supposed to have this bug anymore, and will just lose health accordingly. If not, please tell me so.
Nice little game, I enjoyed playing it. I wish I can say the same about the gameplay, why four digits? You could settle for two. Every time I get it wrong I have to repeat the same numbers again and again.

At least, thank god I managed to download it before they shut down Megaupload.
I have one more question: Does this game have more than one ending (instead of fails of course)?

I haven't made multiple endings, this was my first project, but after I finish my current game, which might take a while, I might redo the whole thing, make it bigger, add multiple endings and maybe multiple cases, but I'll se about that at a later point in time.
I chose to use 4 numbers so people wouldn't just try all combinations but really think about what they want to present. 2 would've been enough for just the combinations, and 3 might've been better, but I wanted to minimize chance to the fullest.
Now you mention it, I think I'm going to have to find a new site and reupload the file since Megaupload is down. It's kind of odd though, if SOPA didn't pass, then how did it get shut down?
You can upload it here. :P

Yeah, I guess that's true. When I first uploaded the game, I got many broken pages, though, maybe because I'm not on an American server. I'll see if I can upload it to the site now, though.
Hi, I would like to play this game.

Can you upload it again? Thanks

The download is pending, so it should be up by tomorrow, I think. I've just replayed the game, and, though being noobish, lacking in all sorts of things, and containing many phoenix wright tracks I didn't even use in-game at all, it is my first game ever after all, it was rather fun to replay it. :) I hope you'll enjoy it!
Ahahaha darn it! What a coincidence! My nagademo's about a detective (AND YES IT HAS PW SOUNDTRACKS 8D) so I was kinda hoping to play yours to get more experience. :)

I hope you'll get lots of experience to make a game that is much better than mine. :) A detective that has been executed really well is 'The Mystery of the Man Who Became a Pig'. Be sure to check that one out too, as it's about 10 times as good as mine! XD
