When a party for a wealthy family’s ten-year-old daughter ends with the birthday girl dead, her older sister missing, and the father refusing to call the police, the detective isn’t exactly conventional. She finds herself at the site of the crime – a rented out old mansion – without any trace of memory. It’s the landlady who tells her that she is a private investigator who’s been hired to catch the culprit and bring them to justice.
But how can she solve a murder when she can’t even deduce her own name? Was it one of the party-goers who did the young guest of honor in? …Or was it the ghost said to wander the haunted halls? Can she manage to find the still missing girl before another tragedy takes place?
…And will she be able to sleuth out her own memories and the meaning behind their disappearance at the same time?
♦ Interview suspects, present items, and scour the mansion for clues!
♦ Story driven – solve a classic but tragic murder mystery
♦ Choose between two variations of the ending – decide the culprit’s fate!
♦ Atmospheric soundtrack, menus, and lighting
♦ Approximately 45 – 85 minutes of gameplay
Female | ?? | Private Investigator
An apparent detective who found herself at the scene of the crime without her memories. She seeks to uncover the truths behind both the murder and her own amnesia. She doesn’t come across as particularly professional, and carries a hint of snark, but she can be all-business and highly determined when push comes to shove.
Female | 10 | Elementary School Student
An unfortunate young girl who’s promising future was cut short during her tenth birthday party. She was a good kid; kind, bright, and curious, if just a tad bit spoiled and used to getting her way.
Male | 52 | Bank CEO
A wealthy, successful man who’s carried a surprisingly fragile heart since the passing of his wife. Typically, he only shows his soft spot to his two girls. He has always been particularly dotting towards his young Annabel – she reminded him of her beloved mother and the sudden loss has seemingly left him devastated.
Female | 14 | High School Student
A previously outgoing girl who hasn’t been the same since the loss of her mother. Nonetheless, she is generally quiet and sweet, if a bit of a wallflower. She is currently missing and is feared to be in danger.
Male | 36 | Unemployed
An alcoholic who lives with and leeches off his wealthy brother. He is actually an intelligent man burdened only by his own laziness, and was relatively close to both of the girls despite his dispassionate demeanor.
Female | 21 | Professional Nanny
A nanny hired to take care of the two girls, she was well-liked by both and is typically enjoyable to be around, but she’s a bit more of a party-girl than first impressions may suggest, and isn’t always the most responsible when it comes to her job.
Male | 16 | High School Dropout
An acquaintance of the victim and her older sister’s boyfriend. A slightly older, aloof high school dropout with a chip on his shoulder, and not particularly well-liked by the girl’s father.
Female | 46 | Mansion Owner
A curious, reserved woman who owns and rents out the mansion where the party and the tragedy took place. She was the only non-party goer around during the incident.
