Developer and publisher Armonica LLC has announced their upcoming mystery adventure visual novel, Detective Instinct: Farewell, My Beloved, set to launch for PC via Steam at an unknown date in 2024.
The story follows the brutal murder of a man in a hotel, with a woman traveling on a cross-country train disappearing, seemingly without a trace. Only the protagonist remembers this woman existing, however, leaving it up to you to solve the mystery surrounding her. Players will interrogate witnesses to perform this feat while uncovering the depths of a particular conspiracy. Plenty of unique interactions and optional dialogue are also present for those who take their time perusing all the game has to offer.
Detective Instinct: Farewell, My Beloved is explicitly in the style of classic adventure games from Japan. Further, it is “inspired by hard-boiled crime fiction, classic cinema, and other classic adventure (ADV) games.” The presentation combines “2D-pixel art portraits and old-school prerendered 3D backgrounds.” Plus, the original soundtrack will be quite varied, with jazz and orchestral songs.
