Detective Butler: Maiden Voyage Murder reviews and comments

Detective Butler: maiden voyage murder this is more of an interactive story than a game, you have no choice to make. However, this story of detective full of twists is very pleasant, the illustrations are much better than the previous version and the music, even if I personally did not too hung, will probably appeal to many. I would also have liked a greater depth of the characters, one does not attach enough to my taste. Maybe this will be corrected in a sequel promised by the developers... A short story of murder (2 to 3 hours), quite simple to follow (I discovered the assassin from the interrogation phase) available only in English that I recommend here. Here it is....

Detective Butler: Maiden Voyage Murder is a free Visual Novel. Whether these Programs can really be counted among the Games has been a matter of debate for a long time, but there are some Representatives of this very special adventure subgenre that include elements of the classic Text adventure or "Playbook" RPGs/Adventures and then rather mine Meet definition of Game. What we have in front of us here, however, is a very typical UN. On the plus Side, it says it's free. On the negative Side, from my Point of view, above all, is the Graphic. Now I don't think all Games have to come with Ultra-4k glossy optics, especially with Strategy and WiSim games, the Graphics are in my Opinion rather a Side issue. But this is a VN, means there are only three Areas where such a Game can score: Text, Graphics, sound. And if the Graphics are already falling through, that's quickly a Shot in the Oven. Why don't I like the Graphics? The Developers rely on a Mixture of drawn (Anime-style) Figures that are positioned in front of Backgrounds, which consist of Photographs that have been edited with a lightweight "oil painting case fabric painting or similar" filter by the COMO or Photoshop. This is done in my Eyes and seems inharmonious and even somewhat like cheap Patchwork. But Is, of course, a Matter Of taste. The Sound is even worse to evaluate, neither can you set the Sound quieter nor turn it off and it is even worse Gedudel on full Pulle. The last Point is the Text, which is hopelessly confused, seems of Formulation and Story as if this has been made up of a 14-year-old Puber-animal. So in my View, this is more in the bottom Third in the Field of Visual Novels. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MmC0-xeyqH4
