Definitely one of my favorite classics next to The Dead Case. :)
All the many clues, characters, and dialogue choices were a nice touch. ^_^
Also, maybe it's just me, but I actually liked the little girl. :? Maybe seeing her for real in that atmosphere would be creepy, but I always wanted to believe that she was related to the victim who died and was his daughter, so she wanted to help the police get justice on him (in a more or less innocently childish way though).
Then she got way different in the sequel. :p
Also, Kill Them All is probably one of my favorite songs in a flash game next to the songs in Memohuntress such as "Rose Inn" and stuff from The Sagittarian series, and maybe TCT (The Color Tuesday's) "Rose at Midnight" (Oh yeah, Epic Battle Fantasy is also good. :))
My only complaint is that the bad guy always seems to be the same. :( I think someone else said that too somewhere (might not be here) a very long time ago.
First thoughts: The introduction caught my attention; I watched all of it.
I appreciate how the characters' eyes and mouths moved with the dialogue; shows attention to extra details. The sighing noises could be varied a little more as they became a tad repetitive.
I enjoyed the music entering the fairground. Creepy, but not too dramatic. Didn't think the music for Mandy fit.
Either that, great game!
I think if there was a skip through dialogue would hoep. Didn't like how the second clue was 10X's harder to find. I think the little girl pulled off the clown nose off the clown ad feels guilty that he's being blamed for the murder so is helping the detective. Great game and would love to see more from you.
The game was pretty short, and it was evident pretty early on who the murderer was so everything after that was just fluff. Idk. It could've been a more complex mystery. Really, I felt like I was playing one of those old scooby doo mystery pc games. That's not necessarily a bad thing though. While there wasn't much novelty, the game was still very enjoyable as well as light-hearted and even a little funny here and there. Overall, I liked it, but it certainly wasn't perfect and there's a decent amount of things that could've been delivered better.
A truly excellent game. It was like a fantastic mashup from both the Phoenix Wright & Nancy Drew Adventure series. Also, I very much enjoyed the rich music selection, because it provided a truly immersive atmosphere.
