Don't play Turnabout for Human Rights.
Despite picking this as the winner for The Miracle Happen
case competition for its fun dialogue, intriguing mystery, and charming presentation... it ABSOLUTELY did not deserve it! Knowing what I know now, I would have disqualified eerew and applekitty's entry and reported it to a site moderator. Turnabout for Human Rights (which I will refer to as TfHR) is a shameless plagiarism of the far superior Brawl for Human Rights (which I will refer to as BfHR), a compelling dark take of the Ace Attorney series. The creators of TfHR took plot aspects from the amazing BfHR series and made them into bad taste "jokes", disrespecting the source material. As evidence for this claim, just look at the concept art they've made for it, a blatant tracing of BfHR's concept art. You might see that it's not in the OP, but if you go into the AACD discord and type in the search bar "from:eerew#8035 has:image yay" you will surely find it. Ask yourself, why would they not put it in the OP if they weren't AFRAID of being outed for their troubling behavior. (Edit: It looks like eerew edited it in the op after I called him out in an effort to discredit me). I ask each and every one of you to stand in solidarity with me and boycott TfHR and then maybe we can send a message that this sort of idea stealing is unacceptable in this community.
There is evidence for eerew having known about BfHR, namely his post in the forum for it 3 months before this thread, in addition to this, it's obvious from...everything...that some inspiration was taken, as one look at the synopsis and the case 2 and 3, it cannot be denied that everything is similar, however since BfHR is not actually out (as far as I can tell) its similarities only truly go so far as to prove inspirations were taken, and the whole thing having the same name of BfHR's last case is definitely not a good look, in conclusion, while I heavily suspect foul play and ill-intent, and am willing to believe the tracing without seeing it, the tracing is really not too decisive anyway, as eerew could easily claim that it was beta-art that he always intended to change, and while editing the post is definitely suspect in itself, especially as it only happened after he was called out, it's circumstantial at best, and there's nothing to definitely prove either argument, however, I'm much more inclined to be skeptical of eerew because Trybien receives 0 benefit from lying, and in fact, could easily wind up being completely discredited, while eerew has won a major competition and stands to gain notoriety and possibly popularity should he uphold a lie.
just a guy with a lot of ideas but who isn't very good at executing them.
THERE ARE MYSTERIES OTHER THAN LOCKED ROOMS, YOU GUYS. NOT EVERY CASE HAS TO BE A LOCKED ROOM MYSTERY.
