I think this is the right place to share this? (Reviving this dead place hahaha, never ventured here before)

So, I downloaded it and finished it relatively quickly (It was short, like less than 2 hours long).

I really enjoyed it! A lot of foreshadowing, and I wonder if there's more plot if you play a second time round? Or were they going to make this an episodic? Anyone else played it yet?

The plan was to make it an episodic thing, the developers/publisher confirmed in a pre-release interview.

I played it when it was released in Japan. I liked the film-like story (and even though Suzuki didn't pen the story, I thought it did had a CiNG-like quality to it), but it was not really an old-fashioned adventure game like we'd come to expect from Kanasaki, and even if you'd look at the game as a novel game, it was extremely limited, so from a gameplay perspective I was very disappointed.

Yeah, it felt like an interactive movie (Sorta like Attack of the Friday Monsters).
I did find it threw you into a few game mechanics and it was a lot of work and set up for such a short story, so I was surprised when it ended so suddenly.
I hope it does get more episodes though (preferably longer than 2 hours of gameplay though XD).

I think it set itself up well for a continuation (especially with that cliffhanger), so I hope they'll make more of it eventually. It definitely had a Hotel Dusk- and Another Code-ish feeling to it (and Nanase looked like a darier and thinner Kyle Hyde), and with that in mind I feel like it could have a lot of potential. It's pretty hard to judge the story, it was good but can hardly stand on its own. The gameplay didn't leave much room for the player to figure stuff out on its own, my biggest gripe is the part where you had one chance to point something out because I couldn't make out what things in that picture were supposed to be (and the one chance-thing felt completely unnecessary, both because one just went back to the same spot to try again, and the game over-screen is simply Nanase looking disappointed because his subordinate failed. ...So?). The characters were pretty good considering the short time we got to know them. Nanase was so damn chill xD Stupid you stupidly bought a gas tank of a stupidly large size...

It was interesting, even though really short. It seemed more of a prologue/tutorial case than an actual full-fledged game. I read somewhere that this is most likely going to be an episosic series, this being the first one, so that's not a big deal actually.
That cliffhanger at the end was totally unexpected, and the multiple deja-vus Nanase gets during the game could really play a fundamental role in the next installments.

The examination parts need to be improved, they were pretty tedious. It could be interesting to move from a place to another like in Ace Attorney, just to add more options to the player.

Can't wait for the next episode :edgey:
