Creator Ramblings: This game has been inspired by Japanese style adventure games that combine conversational elements of visual novels and gameplay elements of adventure games. This graphic adventure game has a variety of simple mini-games and problem solving puzzles reminiscent of escape games. Choices made during the visual novel route determines the main character interactions with others, which will affect his demeanor and attitude toward the end of the game (determining his future). Multiple endings based on choices made. Gifts gained from solving problems can be given to others with "interesting" results. Amount of game content is dependent on player style. The game can be completed in one playthrough should you play thoroughly and try to maximize every experience. Otherwise future replays would make more sense in character behaviors with hindsight.

At this time we are looking to get the game out faster and adding new members to get the demo out quickly. Ideally will run a small Kickstarter for polish, potential full voice acting, and mastermind Tip route added. Hope you have playing this game once it's out!
