Three's Company

Image

Just three people hanging in an elevator... What could go wrong?

If there's one thing Ace Attorney's known for, besides its mysteries, of course, it's its characters! Experiencing all the eccentric personalities of the characters is one of the best parts of any case. But what if things were a bit less... crowded?

For this competition, you must create a case with three or less characters with speaking roles. Basically, if there's a character that talks at any point, they count. I put in the speaking role qualification to make things a bit easier on you, if you really need more characters. Of course, with a defense lawyer, a prosecutor, and a judge, that's three characters already, so you'll need to think a bit outside the box for this one.

Judging
Story: All the normal stuff that comes with writing a story, plus a good justification for the lack of characters.
Presentation: Fitting music, graphics, and all the other presentation stuff. (This is my personal weak spot, so expect leniency here. However, extra effort is always appreciated!)
Gameplay: It should be fun to play! Good design is essential! If you include puzzles, make sure they're fair and of appropriate difficulty.
Theme Relevance: The case contains three or less speaking characters.

Rules

The entry must have been created between Jan 10, 2020 and Apr 11, 2020.
The entry must not be showcased until after the deadline, but may be showcased before the judging period ends.
The entry may be a trial, investigation, comedy or miscellaneous.
The entry may contain spoilers from the first four Ace Attorney games, but may not from any others (sorry, I still haven't gotten around to those ones).
The entry must not contain more than three speaking characters.
The entry may be incomplete.

Deadline

The entry must be submitted to trialdude by Apr 11, 2020 at 11:59 PM PST (with 24-hour wiggle room), with a walkthrough.

That's a really creative theme! I might participate, but then again my last post here was probably me saying I might participate in the last comp. Good luck to all entrants!

I guess I can help collabarate with someone (not lead the project btw) by helping with story, dialogue and music if someone wants a helping hand. PM me if you trust this geezer.

Edit: Working with someone now. Don't PM me :^)

Jesus, this theme is crazy. I just started a new job and have a bunch of work to do and will likely be super busy for many months, so of course I am ENTERING THIS COMP!!!!! I don't want to promise an actual case, lol, but I'll have something, for sure.

Been a while since I've attempted making a case, hope my rust doesn't show.

I think it's safe to say I have a case idea for this comp. I don't know if I'll have enough to enter by the time the deadline rolls around, but I'll do my best. Put me on the list.

Putting myself out there to assist.
As far as I know, I can do dialogue and especially comedy (I hope). I can also use the editor to make whatever is needed.
Other skills questionable.

If anyone needs help or a collaborator, I can team up!

Well, this theme is crazy. I'll see if I can come up with an idea. I want to get back into writing.

I have a rough idea, though it remains to get the details.

Nonetheless, I'm officially signing up. The contestant field is now a crowd.

Still very early in my planning, but I'm coming through with a couple of fancy intro hypeshots:
