The House in Fata Morgana has announced a new murder mystery project M

Stage and solve the mystery

Thanks to the word-of-mouth approach to Novect''s promising visual novel, Novect has announced its next game, project M, a murder mystery in which the player is both murderer and detective.

Project M will investigate a serial murder case in two ways. In an adventure game setup, the detective side wanders around areas and asking questions of different characters. In the murder section, the player actually takes on the role of murderer and stages various perfect crimes, such as setting up a locked room murder.

The protagonist, who works for a corpse disposal company, ends up in exploring various areas of downtown Tokyo like Asakusa and Yoshiwara. It''s going to be a rather troubling story, according to the author.

Novects Hanada Keika said the team would not only launch in English and Japanese, but that a publisher will be necessary to cover that.

Making a killing

While detective and murder have explored playing a number of games, the player is going to leave as little evidence as possible before analysing it and going along with their own path.

It''s a surprising novel idea from a very professional studio. It quickly became a well-known visual novel, owing in part to word of mouth and a Switch port making it quite accessible. It''s a time-bending, perspective-altering thriller that really tugs at the heartstrings. It''s all for the sake of thinking Novect might absolutely write a good murder mystery.

Im interested in seeing what Project M will be like with Novect and a large part of the team behind it once it has a official name, release date, and more.
