Tales of the Mirror is a visual novel game where you solve a series of mysteries in the Ming Dynasty to help a woman with the injustices her family has suffered.

You need to crack the case within a specified number of days, and you need to use an ancient mirror to reveal the lies and secrets hidden behind the words in your quest for the truth. Behind the twists and turns of the bizarre story lies the human condition and life-and-death decisions. Let us travel back in time to the Ming dynasty and relive this legendary story that happened in the misty Yangtze Delta.

Game Features:

1. The exquisite ancient Chinese backdrops let you immerse yourself in the beautiful scenery of Yangtze Delta.
2. You will be profoundly intrigued by the unexpected development of the plot and cannot help but delve further into the mystery.
3. Truth is not always apparent. The ancient mirror in your possession allows you to uncover deeply hidden secrets.
4. Clues lie between the lines. In the course of tracking down the culprit, you need to find important clues from the dialog, record them, and solve layers upon layers of puzzles to get to the bottom of everything.
5. As a player, every choice you make will affect the direction of the plot and lead to different endings.

Beautiful game needs improvement

Hardcore detective game with beautiful graphics. Its lack of hints reminds me of some classic work in this genre. That being said, however, as a game for the mobile platforms, where a lot of us are casual players, and don’t want to go through lots of trial-and-error process. It might be better to add some hints after sending wrong present to people (rather than just taking the present and saying ‘I don’t know what you are talking about’, oh, your heartless NPCs!) remove useless clues in the clue combination screen and allow players to save anytime during questioning.

As for the English translation, I (only halfway through) noticed some hard to translate mini puzzles have been simplified. However there’s some translational inconsistencies in this game, i.e. the names of some characters keep changing. And one major problem that prevents player from progressing through is the number of soy sauce in the cooking prep mini game. (The text says 1 mace but it ought to be 10.) Other than that, some word choices are a bit funny, like calling courtesans in ancient China geisha is not a big deal for many, but does ruin the atmosphere for some. The whole translation seems a laced teamwork lack of proofreading, which is quite common nowadays.

All work and no fun

This game is way too complicated. Too many different things to keep track of…notes, clues, clue combinations, dates, time, calendars, money, inventory, clothes, people, etc. I made it to the first night at the hotel and have no desire to keep playing. I wish they would go back to the days of Mr. Pumpkin and Isoland…those were some of my favorite iOS games ever.

Thank you for your feedback. Please rest assured that we will provide a better game for our players. Please look forward to it.
