A terrifying investigative adventure game set in the 18th century: classical music, baroque style, horrible murders.

ENGLISH AND JAPANESE VERSION AVAILABLE!

~~ THE STORY ~~

Year 17XX - Austria:  former orchestra conductor Heinrich Steiner accidentally discovers the horribly mutilated corpse of an unknown person into the local theater. Someone turned that body into a working musical instrument. Heinrich, a passionate musical composer, is stunned: how can someone create something like this? Obsessed with the murderer and his musical skills, Heinrich is going to discover a tremendous truth hidden behind the luxurious curtain that covers the entire city. Who is the killer? Why is he doing all this? And more importantly: will Heinrich be able to discover his identity without being killed?

~~ THE GAME ~~

Following the steps of the former orchestra director and skilled composer Heinrich Steiner, the player will uncover the secret behind a bloody trail of terrifying murders.  Blood Opera Crescendo is trying to "break the limits" of RPG Maker, offering improved graphics, a deep story and game mechanics inspired from series like Ace Attorney and Persona. During the game you will face interrogations and misdirections: if failed, they will lead to game over.

THE STORY - ストーリー -

17XX年、オーストリア。
かつてオーケストラの指揮者を務めていたハインリッヒ・シュタイナーは、偶然にも地元の劇場で死体を発見する。
ひどく切断された身元不明の死体は、誰かの手によって実際に演奏ができる楽器へと変えてしまった。
ハインリッヒは情熱的な作曲家だ。それゆえ驚いた。誰がこんなものを作ったのか?
殺人鬼とその音楽技術に魅せられ、ハインリッヒは深い謎に満ちた事件の真実を解き明かすため動き出す。
街中を覆う闇と豪奢な幕裏に潜む真実と殺人鬼。その犯行の目的は?

ハインリッヒは生きて犯人を突き止められるのか?

恐怖に満ち、それでいて洗練された物語。バロック時代に起きた事件をたどり、人間を楽器に変えてしまう殺人鬼に迫る。
クラシックの傑作曲が盛り込まれた上品なサウンドトラックも秀逸。

the deduction is weird af.
why was the sawdust lying there?
could have many reasons, none of them implied anywhere.
same with the other hints.

at the moment I have more ideas why that stuff was lying there than the protagonist.

who instead of wondering how the stuff even came to be (in relation to the events) just wonders if it was there, was hidden, or if the hidden sawdust was already there. -.-


Hey there :) Well it's a matter of deduction after all: the theatre is carefully cleaned each evening after closing and each morning before opening (as the main character said) and the backstage room is used only for dressing and make up related matters. Finding sawdust half hidden under a carpet is definitely strange. Assuming everything, the sawdust was left during the night of the murder (otherwise it would have been cleaned by the theatre staff) and it's "out of place" in a room like that one. But don't worry :) as the game will proceed everything will be explained: most things are not clear at the beginning and the main character will find new clues that will challenge many things now given for granted ;)

This is an extremely well made demo and making use of the interrogation/deduction phase makes this unique. I hope to play more of this when the game comes out.

Hey Levont :) thanks a lot! We hope this new game gets some attention haha!

I hope so too. I'm a big advocate of having more RPG Horror games in the main gaming market.

We aim to create a high-quality game using RPG Maker. To "clean" the tool name and show everyone it's possible to craft something good using a simple tool like RPG Maker :)

And here's the second video for the demo. Now you caught my interest with the man and the lady.

Hey thanks :D we are glad! We will upload the upgraded version of this demo with the second chapter soon!

It's a well polished game! Was it done with RPG Maker? If so, how does it compare to the 2d version of Unity(I made Hasmon https://chillitech.itch.io/hasmon with unity, but with the 3D version. The 2d version is basically the 3D version with 1 dimension removed. Everything else is the same)

Hey there! Yes it's RPG Maker MV but with A LOT of work on graphics, artworks and music. Basically we use "parallax mapping" techniques to create those maps you can see :) Photoshop and similar stuff. It's a bit more "closed" compared to Unity of course, but it's more user-friendly if (like me) you can't code haha
