Crime, criminal investigation, interrogation. Can these elements, commonly found in mystery dramas and cop movies, be presented in a game?
Out of a strong interest in the subject matter, the production team studied a large number of books on criminal psychology and consulted with professionals in the field, seeking to understand the discipline as deeply as possible. We have brought our findings to "Card Detective", integrating them deeply with the plot and gameplay.
During our research, we also considered which art style would best fit the story atmosphere. Ultimately, we chose a realistic comic style, using rich variations in shadows, lines, and tones to present the overall atmosphere and foreshadow the plot direction. This is a new attempt for us on the artistic level, and we hope everyone will like it!
Players will take on the role of newspaper reporter Hazel Gong, who was originally covering a practice exercise at an abandoned building site, but stumbles upon a mysterious corpse in an accidental collapse!
Faced with the subjective statements of the witnesses from different perspectives, to uncover the truth, Hazel Gong turns to a mysterious bar owner to learn criminal investigation and psychology, and questions the witnesses. Confronted with complex relationships and a series of emergencies, will Hazel Gong be able to uncover the truth of the case?
Based on a realistic comic style, the story's atmosphere is depicted through changes in shadows and tones, suggesting the plot's direction.
In terms of character animation, we aim to replicate the real reactions of people being interrogated through the nuanced depiction of micro-expressions, linking character movements and expressions with gameplay.
