Jisei: The First Case HD is a visible novel, homicide thriller recreation from Sakevisual. It was initially launched for PC in 2010 and is now on the Nintendo Change for all of the big-screen, HD glory. Homicide mysteries are my private favourite and this recreation did a tremendous job of preserving me on my toes.
The sport takes place in a single setting, which is a espresso store. You’ll be able to transfer to completely different rooms similar to the principle space, which is the seating space and major entrance, in addition to the hallway, the women’ room (the place the physique is found), or the boys’s room. You’ll be able to look at the world or discuss to whoever is there. On this case, the one different folks round are an off-duty detective, a barista, and two different prospects. Then, after all, there’s you.
You play as a anonymous protagonist and, despite the fact that we’re inside his head, we don’t know something about him. He appears to maintain to himself more often than not, and it’s clear he has a previous he doesn’t need anybody to learn about. Nonetheless, when a physique is found within the ladies’s toilet, it’s apparent he has supernatural tendencies. For the sake of story spoilers, that’s all I’ll say on the matter.
The gameplay was easy as you uncover the physique, and one of many prospects walks in on you as you’re wanting on the corpse. You start to research alongside the off-duty detective to determine who the sufferer was, who killed her, and why. Everything of the gameplay is investigating. You’re inspecting rooms and interrogating folks. The sport provides you all the things that you must ask. You simply must put the items collectively.
Investigating is an enormous logic puzzle as you communicate to the 2 prospects and barista attempting to determine their tales. Typically they contradict one another, themselves. Their tales could match up as effectively, which typically made me marvel in the event that they have been in cahoots collectively. There’s a number of deceptive and purple herrings (or one thing to make you assume it’s a purple herring). General, there are many twists and turns to maintain you intrigued and engaged all through. Better of all? The ending made sense, and there have been no free ends throughout the case.
Jisei: The First Case HD is a brief recreation and may be completed inside an hour or an hour and a half. It took me about three hours as a result of I performed it with my sister. Although it’s a one-player recreation, we love taking part in homicide mysteries collectively to bounce concepts off of one another and determine it out collectively. At $3.99, you get your cash’s value and a very good time in addition.
The visuals have been improbable with pretty backgrounds bringing the espresso store vibes alive, and the anime-style characters have been straightforward to have a look at as effectively. Plus, they have been totally voice acted that basically added some attraction to the sport. These voice actors included individuals who labored in video games similar to Fireplace Emblem: Three Homes and Phoenix Wright: Ace Lawyer.
This recreation left off at a cliff-hanger, hinting that there’s extra to the story. An epilogue is unlocked when you beat the principle story as effectively. It’s a few minute or two lengthy that seemingly units up for the sequel. There are two sequels already out for PC although I do hope they arrive to the Nintendo Change in due time.
