Closed Circuit

[Closed Circuit]

Play as Galida Maxwell, Robot P.I. Help Edward Herman investigate the murder of his robot spouse, Kit.
Your only tools are two Crime Reconstruction tapes, which allow you to investigate the scene from two distinct camera angles.

Only about one and a half puzzles are finished. If you read a note from Kit, that's the last dialogue implemented.

Nice music and the theme was interesting. I couldn't pick up the key for some reason but I did enjoy opening the doors over and over again! With a bit more work on the art and atmosphere and a lot more puzzles this could be a fun game. There is some nice humor here as well.

Hi efno, thanks for the feedback! Glad you enjoyed it.

We've gotten similar feedback about the key. You're not actually supposed to pick it up; instead, Ed goes to the apartment (outside of the simulation) and gets the actual physical key. This is the only way it could be used in the other tape. But the dialogue and presentation could be much clearer about this.

Had similar problem as the one already mentioned. Also found the music and theme to be appealing. Could see this being real intersting if devloped further, good job.

I like the idea of this game! It's simple but well defined.
I'd like to see a complete game out of this.
Well done.
