OMG I love it

This game is absolutely amazing. Every game that I have gotten like this I had to pay for. This game is absolutely free nothing cost money and I love how you can like skip some parts and I have don't have a certain amount of skips or have to pay for skips everything is completely free. It’s really realistic. The story of the game is also realistic, it’s a little sad but I mean it’s a realistic crime game. The story is going to be sad but it’s the best game I have ever download it and I recommend it. And great job to the creators 👏🏽.

Great plot and fun gameplay though some issues

I really loved playing this game, it’s got amazing storytelling and it has just enough suspension to keep you wanting to know what’s going to happen next. They do a great job with the plot twists and the red herrings but the few issues I’m having with this game is that for some reason I couldn’t hear the volume at all even when I turned my volume all the way up. Plus sometimes when I enter the group chats, it would open up at the start of the chat which would cause me to scroll down to the most recent messages. It also makes it seem like a video was posted over and over again on the chat of the victim’s phone and you would have to try to scroll all the way down until the chat would become more active again. Also, the ending for episode 3 seems to be bugged as when you reach the ending, it doesn’t take you to the end credits like it did with the other episodes and it took me a day to realize that I had finished episode 3. The same seems to happen for the last episode because at the end, (if you do the good ending for the alt) it takes you to a news article about the arrests of the killers but it won’t let me click off which was annoying. Overall, great if not amazing storytelling but it needs to work on some bugs in the game. Also the episodes seem to be for only season 1 so I’m guessing there’s going to be a season 2? If so, can’t wait til it comes out!

This game is amazing, completely free, free skips, everything. No catches. It’s very interactive and you go through steps as an officer to find out who killed this young man. The message is so powerful. I was so angry I had angry tears, I felt powerless, and then I felt relieved and accomplished. It’s realistic and interesting. It’s really worth playing and honestly I would have paid for this, but I’m so glad it’s free and this powerful message can reach so many people. Thank you for this amazing game. #FKJJ
