It is five years since the events of 1999's The Silver Case, set in the new 25th Ward that arose in the bayside area of Kanto. In a room of the “Bayside Tower Land” apartment complex, a woman is found murdered under mysterious circumstances. This sets off a series of seemingly random events bridging across multiple protagonists including The Silver Case's Morishima Tokio. With all viewpoints assembled, a truly shocking pattern emerges.

Just awfulI bought this game because I've liked some of Suda51's games. I knew this wasn't your conventional game. I don't mind retro gaming at all...
However although this plays like the old school pc games with commands like look, talk, move etc this wasn't worth any if the time invested in it. The story was feigning being obscure but instead felt boring/confusing. It had none of Suda51's humor and just a whole lot of dialogue with little to no actual gameplay. Ie I think this is a surprise visual novel.
I keep most of my games, even the ones that aren't so good but this one I had to exchange to get it out of my collection. Tldr: zzZZ Buy something else, unless visual novels are your thing.
