Hey you brilliant people of aaonline! This is Negatious, and after holding a rather long break from creating anything on this site, I'm finally working on a new oneshot case with
Apollo Justice as the defense attorney and protagonist! A certain other defense attorney might make an appearance as well...
NOTE : Case name might be due for a change.
So,the case takes place in modern London, in a renowned hotel. A place bustling with guests, and the staff's busy serving customers, pouring drinks, serving food, checking people in and out...
Until the police are called in and the hotel halts to a complete stop.
On the seventh floor of the hotel, in their own, assigned room...a man is found dead. With heavy damage to the man's throat and other evidence, the cause of death is deduced to be a poisoning, but nothing much is known about the murder so far.
Apollo, being a guest in the hotel, decides to take up the case after a close friend of him is thrown into the thick of the case and the hotel's manager, Smith Gerrick, is taken in as the lead suspect.
The prosecution's evidence and witnesses are rather on the compelling side...in a foreign court, in a foreign country, against an unfamiliar prosecutor of Japanese-English roots, a turnabout will be taking place!
Court is in session!

Some of you may or may not remember / know of my first case I created and published here; Hugh O'Conner: Rookie Attorney - The First Turnabout (http://www.aaonline.fr/player.php?trial_id=91692
After I received brilliant advice and reviews from both Enthalpy and Ferdielance (special shout-out to Enth, his review, critique and advice helped me a ton while looking back on the case myself later on) I finally got inspired enough to start creating another case. This one's supposed to be more exploring, use more methods in cross-examinations, try and focus on character building and their known traits, create a believeable (enough) crime while still keeping that Ace Attorney feeling to it.
If everything goes well and people even sort of like it, I might start developing a series of this premise eventually! I just can't do investigations for jack though...
This thread will be updated with screenshots and additional info as time goes on and I keep building the case!
