This game was absolutely amazing. The way the stories drew me in, and how each character was a unique individual with perfect imperfections, and imperfect perfections, all leading up to some of the greatest characters I have encountered thus far in a mystery game. I truly hope you make a second one - as , trust me, I'd be more than willing to buy it.

However, one question remains, the one presented from the start, that's truly irking me. "That fateful night, when I was lost..." Yadda yadda, something along those lines , "When he killed me."

THAT line, at the very start, stole my already suffering attention span. Who could be saying this? I'm making a guess that it might be Lucy, and will remain unsolved until further notice - or , it could be Diane, as she had died. All I do know is that there, in that cutscene, is a very shady Professor Alfendi.

In all honesty, I hope your team will bring about another game (or two, or three..!) to wrap this suspense with a bow. I'll be sure to get the rest of your games, now, as I know the quality content in store. I just hope I see more of your content (and mystery brothers cough cough) in the future.

Music is Back!

Layton Brothers: Mystery Room is an excellent, story-driven game. Compared to other Layton games, it plays more like a visual novel and definitely has a different style (don't be expecting puzzles), but that does not make it a bad game at all. The characters are well-developed, the cases are terrific, and the overarching plot keeps players coming back for more. If the first few free cases interest you at all, it's well worth spending a mere $5 for the rest of the story.

There was a bug that kept the background music from playing, but the team fixed it shortly after I contacted them! I'm glad to have the music back; it just wasn't the same without that sweet jazz.

Oh, and I'm dying for a sequel. (Please!!)
