Music

Most of the music for the demo is Royalty free music but after the kickstarter I want Jaimel Nucom and Aaron Bartel to make an original sound track for the game. They have already made some of the tracks for the game, that you can find in the demo. For the finished game I will not be using Royalty free music.

What a great demo! I especially liked the animations, but really, everything about this has a lot of charm and a metric ton of style. Very fun experience - would highly recommend

I've played the demo, and this looks interesting! The "culprit" of the demo case (I won't spoil which suspect it is) was enough of a jerk that taking them down was very satisfying.

The main character's nickname being Watson is also intriguing, both because he provides the final hint to prove Sherly's case, but also because this protagonist may have a larger role than most Watsons in fiction usually do, given "a certain something that happens at the end of the demo", I won't spoil what.

I'm sold! When you release the Kickstarter for this, I'll pledge to this project.
