    Intro

    There is a man who tells how happy he is that his rival is dead and mentions the name Jubei (meh, inspiration needed there).

    Several days later the ghost appears, which is tasked to find out who killed Jubei. While his/her benefactor who gave the task

    remains as mystery. Also they plan to blow up Jubei's dojo but it will take a several days to get the mixture ready for it.

    Note: There are other crimes going on too. Jubei is not the only killing case in Tenmon. However your main goal is to solve the case related to Jubei.

    Gameplay

    You are the ghost. In early you can give the ghost name and then try to solve the mystery behind the murder.

    You do this by possessing people. During combat you are kind of ghost master (You don't get directly attacked).

    Sounds interesting!

    randomly noticed: I don't see a bear on that third picture.

    So, you'll have Pokémon combat?

    Yeah if you put it plainly, you could say it is kind of Pokemon combat. Expect you are able to help your possessed human by casting spiritual spells.

    Also that bear hides pretty well under the dialogue box, it is easier to spot while you play.

    Hey wait a second, weren't we allowed to only submit the game once?

    EDIT: Mmm, seems the game can be put up at any time but the game will be based off the one that's in the topic when the contest ends.

    It might turn out to be full fledged project after the contest is over. Also I could not resist to add some comedy value in there.

    I'll be posting some notes I took while playing, note that this isn't really cleaned up and so far yet~

    · The title screen needs work. At least change the font, man.

    · What kind of pacing is that in the intro.

    · The English is hard to understand to the point it’s hard to know what’s going on. The humor in this game is forced and out of place.

    · The pacing is also broken. Suddenly I’m in a house and I’m not sure what’s going on.

    · The possessing thing is cool.

    · But why is there a letter on the floor if it’s so important, why did they leave it there??

    · Why is there a bear on the middle on the street and why is it not attacking the girl.

    · The HUD is terrible. The HP and MP is really, really tiny!

    · The Bear healed??

    · Bandits attack important people. What the hell?

    · Heal costs way too much.

    · The conversation with “???” is very unnatural and forced.

    · The enemy increases my attack? Why?

    · Why are these important scrolls scattered around as chests?

    · The Geisha in Scroll #5 is a guy?

    · There’s no clear indication of a level up.

    · He took my scroll #3 and gave me a key and went back to sleep? Why don’t I just kill him K

    · Random encounters are getting annoying.

    · The snow lady thing doesn’t make sense.

    · Wolf sound after “Old Friend” gets filled o_O

    · How did they know that I’m a spy.

    · Ishoroku 5000Yen and why are not we using it???

    · Why are the scrolls located OUTSIDE? How come we’re not raiding houses?

    · Romantic cases?

    · Urufu shut up.

    · Why is there a letter outside???

    · So much backtracking…

    · The music doesn’t fit at all btw.

    · It’s so confusing that I gave up.

    · It has some creativity but bad execution.

    The end explains it. It was all the dream which is caused by sleeping in the Haunted Mansion. Now have you had many or even any logical dreams?In dreams people teleport, scenes are absurd, etc. At least when I sleep.

    This dream is connected to Jubei's "ghost" who is in that said mansion.

    To regards to music, I found it most fitting without using a licensed music. Otherwise I would have used music from games like Ghost Trick.

    Btw about Wolf sound, well. His undercover name is "Urufu/Wolf". Which players find out later.
