Reviews for "Berathen Detective Demo"

Great game, anyways, how did you get rpg-maker in a other format then .exe -.-

Venks responds:

I actually programmed it all in AS3 with Flixel and FlashDevelop

This is the exact same as phoenix wright, I'm taking two stars away for unoriginality and movement speed

Awesome graphics, but the movement speed is way too slow.

Venks responds:

Thanks for playing the game!
I've upped the speed in the next project I'm working on. Hope you'll check that out as well!

I use rpg maker vx ace
but I don't get fixel very well

Venks responds:

Flixel just takes a bit of getting used too. Just keep trying and I'm sure you'll get it!

But heck RPG Maker VX Ace is a wonderful tool itself. I hope you're enjoying yourself with it. ^^

The jiggling was annoying and the movement speed was too slow. The dialogue was poorly written but that can be worked on over time. I can't say much on the story as this is all I know of it, but it definitively needs work. I get what was happening, but the information given felt like exposition more than a natural conversation. This is likely to be explained later but how can a newbie spirit detective see ghosts all of a sudden when they haven't been seen in years? In that case, why are they called spirit detectives if ghosts haven't been around for so long? And how do the spirit detectives get around so fast? And what prompted the 2nd spirit detective to come to that auction? Was it because he had a feeling the swords would be stolen? But it seemed like a closed auction with a select few people attending so who did he here about it from? A lot of plot holes. The characters were one dimensional and would go from 0 to 60 and act radically different then all of the few minutes we known them. They aren't that memorable. That being said, I love the music and think the concept is interesting. Be wary of making this too similar to Phoenix Wright and Ghost Trick. And try to play around the idea of using the ghost like if you don't treat the ghost nicely he won't give you the right info or will make a case harder than it needs to be. The game has potential and as of now its in its demo stage, but it's going to need a lot of work. Good luck and have fun with this and future products.

Venks responds:

Thanks very much for the review! I'll definitely admit I'm in no way the best writer around and it's something I'm working on. I really appreciate you taking the time to write all this up and I'll do my best to improve the next adaption.
