Hi guys! Welcome to Seven Photos: The Photographic Detective! This game is inspired by Dangan Ronpa, Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney, and Layton Brothers! (Three of my favorite murder mystery games!)

Put simply, Seven Photos is a murder mystery game where you have 7 photos to figure out exactly how and why you woke up, without memories, outside a locked room containing two presumably dead people. This is a point and click, action thriller game in which you try to figure out who the murderer is before you go insane. Could it have been you? Who's lying? You have seven photos to figure that out.


Point and click:
-Look for evidence by clicking around for them!
Drag to shoot evidence bullets:
-When you get to the countering phase, drag to shoot the evidence bullet at the statement that you can prove wrong with that evidence!
-(ex. if you have a evidence bullet that says you 'love dogs more than cats', if a statement says 'you love cats more than dogs' you would prove that statement wrong by using your 'love dogs' bullet! If you love Dangan Ronpa, you'll see that this mechanic pays homage to the classic 'You've got that wrong'! from that game :)

Also, I threw in some references to Dangan Ronpa, Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney, and Layton Brothers within the game if you want to find those!

Let me know if you guys find bugs and enjoy!
RECORD: [could be you!]

What's Next?

Thanks so much to my beta testers for sticking through this development process with me and helping make my game the best that it could be!



Rated 5 / 5 stars

The danganronpa vibes are strong in this game.
I liked this game. It's short, it's sweet and it was rather fun. As I've seen someone comment, yes, some tru- I mean, "evidence" bullets were extremely obvious, but that didn't remove anything from the experience. I especially loved the danganronpa-like gameplay, being a big fan like I am. And above all, that ending was rather surprising. I am sure nobody saw it coming, at least until the "peeps", so I don't spoil much, appeared.
So, to conclude, this is a fun game, and I honestly wouldn't mind seeing another game similar to this.

I enjoyed this. The Ace Attorney vibes were well complimented with the much darker tone and theme of the mechanics and art style; even if the hands were kinda creepily drawn. I'm interested to see what else you could do with this style of gameplay regarding different cases and such.

Well, that was fun....and slightly traumatizing, but fun nonetheless!

The "I have a photographic memory" bullet is kinda paradox to most of the clues. Since, the MC would've remember the perpetrator's doings because he/she hired her. I'm confuse on the MC's gender.
