Detective Butler: Maiden Voyage Murder is the first game in the Detective Butler series. Originally released in 2013, we've added various improvements to the re-release for its Steam Greenlight Campaign

In 1962, a popular cruise ship goes out of business after the accidental deaths of two of its passengers. The ship remains a tourist attraction, until it sets sail again half a century later.

The CEO of a wealthy company takes his closest employees and son Gilligan on board for the maiden voyage. Gilligan happens to meet Detective Butler during the cruise, and as the two of them delve deeper into the ship's history, another incident occurs… Will Detective Butler find the culprit before it's too late?

Looks interesting! Looking forward to play it. :)
I can smell Umineko all over it, which is a good thing. Cool characters and neat mystery to solve, however as you wrote in Author's Note, it indeed was pretty easy. Want more :)
Nicely put together, but it really takes ages to get anywhere. I'm sorry to say that I just renounced after almost one hour of little to no development. I think that with some work to focus your writing it could be really neat though. For me the weakest points were characterization (like showing the faces of four characters then going at lengths to avoid any dialogue involving them that could possibly make them interesting) and transitions/emotional progressions (the protagonist's emo mode escalates pretty quickly, and some turns in the conversation are so abrupt that I wondered if an ellipsis was implied).
