Sorry for the wait.

Click eeeeet....


This case has been rated D for Depressing by the people who've played it. And while it doesn't break any of the rules in doing so, if darkness isn't your thing, you might just want to avoid this one.


Notes
  • It's complete! Yaaay!
  • No walkthrough, and you'll see why hopefully once you start playing. Plus, it'd be fun to see how you deal with certain things.
  • FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, USE FIREFOX! OR, if you're going to use other browsers DO NOT use the pre-loader!
  • If during the intro, it seems like the images are timed up properly (if it seems like it takes an entire second to show up when it's supposed to) then I suggest either re-loading it or just rolling with it. Do note that if this is occurring, it just goes to show that pre-loaders are completely freaking useless. <3
  • The thing should be free of any major or game-breaking bugs, but considering the frame count, I'd consider it highly unstable -- if you're somehow stopped from advancing, don't be afraid to notify me and I'll see what I can do.
  • It's probably better if you don't fast-click. It doesn't cause any major bugs, but can make the next frame not show all of its text if you go to it really fast.
  • If this is your last time, drop the ticket.
  • This was a major oversight on my part, but this case does contains a few tracks considered spoilers. My apologies.

hey look at gumpei knocking this off as most recent post with his inspirational quotes and all that nonsense

...annnnnnnnyway. If nothing else, I can say that I feel like this case (if I can call it such) is definitely something you should play if you consider yourself part of the fancase community. AAO finally has its very own "this is something you'll want to have an opinion on" case. But yeah. I saw most of the stuff I missed in testing during Kwando's stream, so I'll uhh do a full review later maybe? Don't hold me to that because I'll probably forget but y'know. I LIKED IT.

Have you changed couple of things after competition was over?
Kwando's streams begins with a trial with Apollo and my game begins differently.

Not to mention
Spoiler : Ending - Meaning :
I didn't allow Crux to testify and pointed out contradiction in detective's testimony. Is it because of that Phoenix sees Maya stopping him from committing suicide instead of Phoenix shooting himself like on the stream, or is it another change?

And question, is it important to get every ending on a single save or I don't have to bother?

Nope. Didn't change a thing.

And you got the extended version of that ending (which you get for solving the testimony).

Oh, and there are only certain endings you should get on a single save to unlock some other ones.

...So you have multiple versions (or at last lengths) of your multiple endings AND I have to find endings in proper order?

Talk about walking around through each possibility ;P

Nah.

That ending is actually the only one with an "extended" version. All of the others are basically the same.

Except that one randomized one.

Apparently I liked this before the true ending even existed.

Well I've watched the stream so I know what was added, probably no need to play this again. I may give a more detailed opinion eventually, now that I've had some more time to think about it.

How do preloaders even work? What do they do?

You take all of the custom backgrounds of the trial, merge them all together in one frame and put a special image right at the beginning saying 'Loading' or something similar.

Theoretically, since at the moment, the player doesn't bother pre-loading custom backgrounds, this should do the job - so when the backgrounds show up, there isn't a heavy delay when you really need them to show up at a right time. ...Theoretically.

Oh hey, you released it publicly~

Once again, congrats on the win.

Also yes, this is going to be... Quite divisive in terms of opinions.

What's so divisive about it? It's good.

How do we know when we got the true ending? Or the "last" time?

I like how this merges AJ with an alternate timeline.

Okay, I finished it. I have some more measured thoughts now. But I'll have to write them later.

Hmm, actually I can't tell if I finished it all...

Congrats again on the win DWaM.

I watched the stream and thus did the equivalent of playing the case, and this isn't one I'm really feeling would warrant a second playthrough; I'll give my full opinion on this one relatively soon; there are still some things that I need to sort out in my head before I can really give the full analysis the case deserves.
"With good friends by your side, anything is possible. If you really care for each other, it makes everyone stronger! Then you'll have the will to succeed! The world is filled with painful things, it's sad sometimes, and you won't be able to handle it by yourself. But just know: If there's someone that you love, you'll stay on the right path. And you won't ever give in! As long as you keep that person in your heart, you'll keep getting back up. Understand? That's why a Hero never loses!"

I want to give a review, but I can't until I've played the every part. But I can't tell if I did... although looking at the frame count it looks like there is way way way more I haven't gotten yet.
