ROSE RED

SYNOPSIS

You're a self described "freelance hobbyist private investigator" hired to investigate the murder of "Rose, no last name given".

The issue comes with the fact that Rose worked as the accountant for Katherine Auburn, a woman who's infamous in your town for transforming her home into a haunted house tourist attraction. The opening for the attraction was supposed to be tomorrow- the only option you have is to interview staff members and try to piece together what had occured only a few hours earlier.

ABOUT

Hi! My name is Honey, and this is a rather short murder mystery visual novel! I've never made games before, but it seemed like a fun venture, so all art, writing, programming and all of that was done by me. The game is unfortunately completely silent, but a link to a related spotify playlist is provided in the about section on the main menu. 

Thank you in advance for checking the project out!

If I understand correctly the only dialogue choice is picking who you think the killer is ? I don't mind kinetic novels, just trying to set the right expectations for myself.

If you're talking about just dialogue choices in general, there's at least one dialogue choice in every one-on-one conversation with characters (minus a few exceptions). The general idea is that depending on which questions you ask characters in interviews, you get different information which might be helpful, ect. There is only one ending though, since all decisions do eventually tie into to the right ending, if that's what you're referring to?

I was planning on adding a free demo download to the page sometime later today, actually, if you want to just wait to try it yourself
