A game by Cardiovore and Ropfa.

Cardy and I have been talking for a while about making a case together once both Contempt of Court and Conflict of Interest were finished. Now that CoC is finally done, we're ready to announce our new project.


What's the plot?
It will be a standalone case titled "Serafina Alexander: Turnabout Temptation." It will star an OC protagonist and mostly OC cast (in fact, we currently are only planning to include two canon characters, one of whom is the judge and the other is a minor cameo). The lead is Serafina "Sera" Alexander, a young attorney who already has a few cases under her belt. Sera's an energetic, maverick type of lawyer with a very "go get 'em" attitude.
She's more morally grey and less of an idealist than some of the other protagonists we've seen; while she does value "the truth," her pursuit of it is not necessarily her main driving motivation.

Is this a sequel to Conflict of Interest or Contempt of Court?
This is a completely different story. Serafina will not follow the story arcs of Phoenix or Arculeus or the Rivales Family. However, if you wish, you can consider them to take place within the same universe. (We may drop references to our previous two games here and there).

What engine will this use?

Pywright, of course! That's what we both have experience using.

Will it be a full game?

No. We've only planned for one standalone case. But if the outline is anything to go by, it's looking to be a long one. For those of you who've played Conflict of Interest, I'd estimate it'll be somewhere between the lengths of Turnabout Consequences and Turnabout into the Unknown.

When will it be released?
idk, probly tomorrow

Seriously though, I won't give an estimate for the final release, since I always tend to overshoot those, but know that this will be a big case, so it might take a while to make, especially since Cardiovore and I both have jobs and other real life stuff.

Do you need help?
We'll be looking for voice actors, so if any female Ace Attorney fans out there with microphones would care to audition, we do need shout clips ("OBJECTION!" "HOLD IT!" "TAKE THAT!") for two characters. You can send links to the files to me via private message.
Here's descriptions of the two characters:
1 - woman, mid-late twenties, energetic, confident, possibly a slight hint of anger
2 - woman, mid-late twenties, condescending, antagonistic but not comically evil-sounding

Please only send the voice, not mixed with any other sound effects, in case we need to modify the clip in any way.

Assuming the obvious (post date and all that), this sounds like it might well be interesting, especially considering the most recent games you guys have made! Good luck.

I actually didn't even consider the date I made this. I promise you, it's genuine. If you want, go check on the Ace Attorney subreddit. I made a post there a few days before this.

Well, this is some great news then. Will be looking forward for what you two will do.

And for this to become the official CoC thread 2.0.

Spoiler: CoC
Gah, had me fooled. Am I right to assume all the other non-CoC puppets (like the ones next to Chill and Maplethorpe) are from this series as well? Considering Hemlock has these puppets, I'm suspecting he shows up.

Today I had a dream where this case was released, and I played it. I decided to share the details here.

Spoiler: Possible (but unlikely) spoilers for Serafina Alexander: Turnabout Temptation
The game wasn’t actually released on PyWright, because I played it on DeSmuME. It also had AAI-style gameplay, at least for the trials, so maybe it was a ROM hack or something.

Serafina Alexander was a really old lady who was a sarcastic jerk to literally everyone. I think she had like eight assistants or something. I remember seeing a banner with images of them and some other original characters, but all I remember is some red-haired journalist lady.

The victim was some guy who was killed by blunt force trauma to the skull and left on a staircase in some supply closet in a convention center. I investigated the crime scene as Seraphina, but someone had spilled some lighter fluid by the body and apparently I’d be blown up if I didn’t finish investigating in time. There was a bag of potato chips lying next to the victim's head, which was apparently important evidence. Unfortunately, there was a strange glitch that advanced the scene if the evidence was found in the wrong order, adding the potato chips to the Court Record before they were actually collected. Once I was done investigating, I left the crime scene and something happened maybe.

There was also some kind of weird dating minigame, but I forget all the details. I just remember being impressed because Ropfa coded the entire thing from scratch. Also, apparently only half the case had been released, but I somehow didn’t know that before I started playing. I got kinda ticked off about that.

I missed the very first line and thus assumed you were trying to make a sonic.exe type of creepypasta of this.

And how were the trials like AAI?! There are no trials in AAI,lol.

I meant to write "investigations" there whoops. There wasn't even a trial in the dream.

Or maybe you're actually Ropfa and you're giving us a super early teaser.
