Game: What should we call it?

Me: CHAINS OF JUDGEMENT PRIVATE INVESTIGATION!!!!

Anyway, I'd have loved to see romance between Ralph and Nathan, despite Tyler's aversion to it, but it wasn't that type of game so I get it. Maybe if you do a sequel you could include some of that lol. You certainly set it up for a sequel, and I honestly love detective games (though I normally play ones where they're killing each other, such as Danganronpa).

Oh a killing game sounds fun NGL 

but in my case, I'd probably want the mc to be the mastermind lolol

Maybe as a twist ending. Kinda like the first Saw movie. I think the first Saw movie is boring, but the twist of the "dead" body you're trapped in the room with being the mastermind behind your predicament was priceless.

Oh like how danganronpa 1's junko's death plot twist XD

That was a bit more twisty, but yes! Twists are my bread and butter. 

WOAH THIS WAS SO GOOD. I stayed up till 4am finishing the game :P I loved all the twists and turns, the character development of Ralph and Tyler, and the found family progression. I really like mystery games and I love the little puzzles mixed into the story, so I think this game might be my favorite that you've made so far (but I've also loved all of your previous games!) Thank you for this enjoyable game ^^, and I hope to see these characters again (maybe in a sequel where they find themselves in another serious situation?)

I'm so happy to know that you liked it! I was afraid that people would like this game since it's different from the usual. Thank you for you comment! Hope you have a good day!

What engine was Chains of Judgement made with ?

renpy

babe? no adroid?

I planned to release a game this week long ago, but I didn't expect to be so busy this month that I haven't gotten the chance to test it on android and make it compatible. Sorry TwT I'll work on it when I have less work

Joiplay with the Renpy plugin lets you play windows versions on android. I use it for some of the itch games that don't bother with android releases.

Scroll about halfway, you'll find the newest release and the Renpy plugin not much further down.

Looks cool, love the cover image
