Romance Detective

Dora[Note: This game is available in Pay What You Want format, including free. If you enjoy the game, show your support for the developer who made it by paying what you think is fair!]

In Romance Detective, a linear indie visual novel from NomNomNami, Protag, and Konatizer that's available in Pay What You Want format (including free), love is in the air, but so is crime! Chrys is a cop who's been called to the local art museum to investigate a stolen vase, but she never imagined that would mean teaming up with the (dubiously) legendary Romance Detective. She's an eccentric crime-solver who's dedicated to love (she claims she was born with that rose in her mouth), and although she may seem strange, she gets results. There's something weirder going on in this city than a simple case of a theft of a gaudy vase, but with Romance Detective and newly re-christened Romance Cop on the case, people have nothing to fear! Just click to advance the text and make choices when presented with them, though there's really no way to lose. Romance Detective is strictly on-rails, but it's cute, funny, sweet, and strange... even if it ends with a "to be continued"!

Romance DetectiveRomance Detective is one of those appealingly madcap visual novels that keeps a smile on your face the whole time. It was originally made for the 2014 NaNoRenO, which explains its short scope, but it's so instantly silly and likable it'll charm just about anyone looking for a romantic but funny buddy comedy. It's a little disappointing that it only offers the illusion of choice, since all options lead you where the game wants you, and the ending is cute but doesn't actually resolve the main plot's questions. It's a little disappointing, but the developer insists the sequel has been in development and is coming later this year, so be sure to follow the official development blog to learn more. Romance Detective is an unapologetically and refreshingly light and lovable visual novel that's the perfect break for anyone looking for something cheerful and funny, and with such great potential, we can't wait to see what its sequel has in store.
