Wow, this game is awesome! Had a lot of fun playing!

Sadly i got demoted :( Apparently Grade C = good work=failed? I am a bit confused :D

Would be cool to know if you have already done everything in a scene or not. It is a bit difficult because you never know if you are done or not, if you can come back or not, or even if you can fail at all. I kind of assumed i had the snake guy since he admitted he injured himself in a stupid way...

I think the voice acting could be a bit faster. But it is done rly well!

Overall i really enjoyed the dancers, the overall story (better than many AAA games rly :D), and the logical puzzles were awesome! A little quiz at the end proving fraud would have been great, since it was already kind of set up.

With a few more cases and a bit of polishing i would see this as a sellable game, rly awesome! :)

Did you solve all the cases? Demoted means you failed more than one case.  When you talk to Tibbs at the police station there is a quiz where you need to get all three ones right to get 100% and at least two right to unlock other parts of the game.

I'm really happy you enjoyed the game so much. I had tons of fun making it.  Those dancers worked out well, I'm glad everyone liked em. 
With the VA, I have speech problems so if I talk too fast they come out, so I have to slow it down sometimes or I sound like Sylvester from Looney Tunes. lol

I'm Nova Kane in the discord if you want to ping me for any clues, I don't want to drop spoilers.

Also, there is another game is the same vein with similar play style called "Sheriff Tibbs". No VA though, but pretty fun game.

I thought i failed only one, thats why i was surprised. I had grade C - failed - A. Maybe C already counts as failed? But it said "good work" or something like that.

It might be a bug. Maybe it's pulling up the wrong picture. I'll look into it

Great stuff, man.  Had me quite engaged.

Thanks a lot. I'm glad you liked the game. I appreciate the feedback.

I thought this was well done.  I like that you add voice acting to your characters.  Good mapping, I really liked the dance club and dancers.

As far as gameplay, I felt like running between ! markers took away from the "investigation" part of it and there wasn't really a chance of failure.  But do understand it for a jam that players need to be able to finish in a short time.

And to echo the previous comment, the cast of characters was great.

I'm struggling with how to do clues. I made games where you had to scour for clues and put them together, and got no good comments, but on the other hand I agree with you 100%. To me, it would be more fun to find the clues and figure out how they work, but getting a player to invest their time in that doesn't always work.


Thank you for playing and I'm glad you like the game. I spent like 4-5 hours making those dancers, and I'm glad everyone likes them.

It's a hard balance between helping and hindering the player.  As you saw, I took the opposite approach, and maybe made mine too hard.
Still, I plan to play yours again, since I don't know why I only got a C for the first investigation.

Actually, I did fail, by leaving one behind at the second house.

The credits for the actors killed me : D

I thought of others after the fact. Glad you liked it.
