CYBERPUNK MEETS HARDBOILED NOIR of the Devil is a Visual Novel Adventure Game, inspired by series like Ace Attorney, Danganronpa, Zero Escape, and AI: Somnium. It combines cyberpunk, neo-noir, black comedy and thrilling courtroom drama into an enthralling and gripping narrative about the conflicts between technology and human nature. Playing as both the disarming Criminal Defense Attorney Evangeline Morgan and the coldblooded Serial Criminal Heartbreak, you solve episodic murder mysteries by examining crime scenes, gathering evidence, questioning persons of interest and ultimately defending your clients in court. In this prologue, Morgan answers an unassuming Public Defender request and finds herself charged with advocating for the man who the police say has shot five people through the heart...and counting. During the demo you'll have to gather the facts, gauge the strength of the police's case, then interview your client and try to build a counterargument strong enough to reveal the truth. After your playthrough, please leave a comment and/or a rating to let us know your thoughts! Your feedback and word of mouth are the highest praise we could ask for.
