This one has me stumped. On one hand, it has some great art, nice little touches to it such as how it shrinks the items into your inventory, and a cool concept in how you gather evidence and piece together a timeline. On the other hand, it's way too short (though I understand that is on purpose, I suppose) and it's a little unintuitive on how to organize the timeline in the end. I'd love to see more of this as I could see the concept run and run with various short scnarios you piece together as this cool detective!

The graphic style is simply amazing! I love it! And the idea of a interactic mystery novel or similar is pretty cool. You can do better the menus logic but I really like the idea.

The effect on the cigarette is very cool and the limitated palette color is a genius form to make a better ambient in the gameplay please make more content of this.

Amazing! Keep doing this good work. :D

Jaswir responds:

Haha, I'll see what I can do.
Thanks for the feedback.
I bet the artist is secretely watching this and very happy.

The drawing style is awesome, but beyond that there isn't much more. I saw no logic in the pictures order so I basically swapped them until they fit. The story itself is unfinished or barely existent, there's a break in and the big case is how did the door got opened and that's it,case closed, we can go home. Lack of music hardly sets the mood for the amazing animation and (what could've been intriguing) story.
It has potential non the less as stated it's for a 5 min hero jam, if more time is invested it might be something worth buying, not to mention playing.

This was kinda cool actually, hope to see sequal!

Jaswir responds:

Thank you!.
What do you expect to see in the sequal

That was pointless, there is no mystery here other than "Why did the author think this was worth publishing?"
