Hi everyone, this is my unentered entry in the "No Place like AAO for the Holidays" case competition. I finally got enough energy to complete it!
It has 6 cross examinations in total, a bootleg Revisualization mechanic, and a whole lot of Australian slang!

The holiday it's set on is the AFL Grand Final day. A very Australia-specific holiday. :calisto:

The case is 100% complete, and is free to play. Any feedback and bug-catching is greatly appreciated!

Pretty enjoyable case! Despite being set in Australia and using a lot of slang, it was still pretty easy to follow (though I love how there were some self-aware moments that called attention to how foreign it can sound to outsiders). Plus, picturing the Judge with an Aussie accent was pretty enjoyable.

There were a few minor bugs I noticed, such as Jessica's mouth occasionally moving when she's giving inner thoughts, having the testimony/cross-examination start automatically some times while other times you had to click to progress, and one moment right at the end of the trial where the Judge's bench goes from the AJ theme to the PW one. Nothing game-breaking, jus minor things that were definitely noticeable.

Overall, fun case, enjoyable characters, and honestly a great idea for the theme of the contest this was envisioned for. Nice job!

Hi! Thanks for trying it and glad you enjoyed it! :pearlhappy:
I'll get to fixing those mistakes asap! CE timing and the wrong judge's bench should be fixed, I just need to sift through all the blue text to double-check timing.

Well bloody hell, you cobber! I decided to pop open a cold one (not really) and play this case, mate. I can't say I'm a huge fan of footy but it's still a fun sport to watch. Nice that you decided to go the extra meter-er, metre and release this case even after my comp ended. You could've just thrown this in the bin but you went ahead and finished it! As for the case itself, very interesting. The blokes and lasses were quite a blast to observe! And at no point did they make me feel groggy inside. So you bet your bottom dollar I enjoyed this case!
Okay, enough of me failing to understand Australian lingo. Seriously, solid case and I look forward to more coming from you.

Here is my review.
Spoiler : :
It was a good case. I should say that i really enjoyed while i was playing.
Positive Things: The storyline was good. Characters were enjoyable. It was funny sometimes. I really laughed. It was the exact definition of short and sweet.
Negative Things: I have 2 negative things to say. First, difficulty was so easy. Especially Cross Examinations. Second, i found the killer in the start of case. So i didn't asked to myself''Who can be killer?''. That's it for negative things. I really want to see Jessica Ryan: Ace Attorney. This can be series, you know? Thanks for your case. I am waiting for your other cases!

Thanks for your feedback! I admit, I hand-held a little with this, but I'll keep difficulty in mind for future cases!

I enjoyed playing this a lot!
Spoiler : A few random thoughts, spoilers for the whole case :
I liked the theming of the case a lot, it felt pretty authentic.
Though having translations after some of the slang sort of detracted from the immersion slightly, as did having sprite credits in the details for profiles.
I think having credits before and/or after the case is fine enough.

I think overall the flow of the case was pretty decent. Some parts felt a bit awkward, though- I don't think it's explicitly mentioned that the murder occurs in the spare bedroom until pretty late in, and the way the second testimony ends felt a bit awkward, too. I get that the general point was that the police rushed the case (mostly due to the prosecutor) but it wasn't as clean as how the first testimony segued into the second, for example. My memory's a bit fuzzy already so I can't elaborate too much on this frustratingly but maybe reread how the first and second testimonies end and go into the next part of the trial and hopefully you'll see what I mean?

The characters were pretty enjoyable to see interact- though I think maybe a bit more time should have been spent on Rebecca and her motive. Having a wedding to pay for soon seems a little weak. What was her plan for explaining where the money came from to Frank? Her breakdown was pretty quick and abrupt too, in my opinion. A bit more time for the prosecutor probably wouldn't be bad either- she really could've screwed over Jessica's entire life because she didn't want to risk hurting her career. Maybe having her realise the flaws in Khurain's anti-defendant system as a result could've been interesting?

Overall, I think you did a really good job! I liked the majority of the writing (maybe a few parts like the dialogue between the victim/killer at the beginning, and Rebecca's breakdown could use a touchup?) and thought the way you handled the holiday theme was very creative!
