Case Summaries

Turnabout of the Past

When Phoenix’s last visit on his old cases severely backfires, he is suddenly sent to the past with a hazy memory and a mysterious warning. Moments upon awakening, a familiar client calls to detail a recent murder and request assistance.

Turnabout Twilight

Elusive thief Katherine initiates a heist for a rare gemstone, only to run into a trap and face capture. A well-known defense attorney named Kyle Duske guarantees Katherine an acquittal, on the terms that she helps him break into a mysterious observatory in search of a kidnapped child.

Supposedly before the break-in is initiated however, Duske is found dead in the Wright and Co. Law Offices, and Katherine is arrested for the crime.

Turnabout, Center Stage

Previously separated Japanese idol duo COSMOS announces its sudden return with a live performance overseas. Anxious about missing such an opportunity, Maya drags Phoenix along against his will. Just as the attorney at law begins to enjoy himself, one of the singers passes out on stage, coughing up dangerous amounts of blood.

As the crowd and security fall into a quick panic, an artist in the crowd dies silently from a deadly poison. The initial investigation points to only one possible culprit, but it is the victim’s 12 year old daughter. Is she really the killer?

A Turnabout in Flames

The Kingdom of Sangreal is the last existing monarchy, existing on its own laws. When the queen is mysteriously murdered, the princess disappears along with the murderer without a single trace. Desperate to find his daughter and the individual who killed his wife, King Charles makes his way to America, following a single clue he received years after the crime.

Bloodshed is not limited to Sangreal however, as a fiery explosion engulfs a local car and devastates the passenger inside. From the investigation, it is determined that the victim was the popular novelist Helen Ritz, and the detained suspect is the young Ema Skye. Who murdered the queen? What happened to the princess? Is Ema Skye the true murderer of Helen Ritz?

Remnants of the Past

A string of horrendous murders take the lives of Phoenix’s loved ones, one by one. Just as he realizes this horrific reality, he unexpectedly returns to the present to find everyone missing. With the help of his few surviving friends, they decide to investigate the deaths and prevent them from ever occurring.

Utilizing the MASON System once more, Phoenix must combine events from the past and the present to protect his future. As he continuously fails to save all of the victims, Phoenix must make the toughest decision of his life.

Happy 2015, everyone! We’ve got some fantastic news for the project– we’ve found a new artist! Everyone please welcome fellow Canadian Nashi to the team and check out her Tumblr here! With her generous assistance, we’ll be rolling out a new set of character artworks for our original characters, as well as some other little gems that I can’t really talk about yet.

On the development front, I’m finally properly set up with a job in Vancouver and out of school for good! Once I move into my new place at the beginning of March, I’ll be creating a strict schedule filled with milestones to get the assets running strong once again. No school means no more breaks!

To add some notes for some of our talented members:

AderuMoro, our voice for Dahlia Hawthorne, plays a role in Apotheon which was just recently released on Steam and PS4 (free for PS Plus members!). Edwyn also plays a role in it, from what I noticed in the credits.

Jacob Pernell and Ryan Ike, our amazing music composers have been recently added to the Starr Mazer crew which includes Virt from Shovel Knight and Manami Matsumae from Mega Man! There’s a Kickstarter here where you can check out the project, which looks fantastic. Support it if you are able! Also, Jacob Pernell is starting up his Twitch channel where he plans to do awesome live music composition work as well as play games. Follow him for free here!

Stay tuned for more updates!
