It’s been just about a year since Jisei was released by SakeVisual to both acclaim and criticism. It was one of the first English Visual Novels I ever played and, despite my few issues, I gave it a Eight out of Ten. Now SakeVisual has released Kansai and once again you are dropped into the shoes of our unnamed detective blessed with suck.
Despite the year in between the release of both games, it’s only been twenty-four hours since the murder of Sara Blackmoore. Our hero is currently slumming it with the twins from the last game, Naoki and Aki Mizutani, who also have abilities similar to his own. They are all summoned by William Auten, the billionaire owner of Auten Engineering from the last game, to give an account of what happened and who Sara might have been trying to sell her information to. When they arrive at his high-tech mansion, the reclusive industrialist is soon found dead and you are thrust into a new investigation that quickly develops into SakeVisual’s finest game to date.
In my first interview ever, I had a conversation with a Polish developer named Tom Grochowiak. Just entering the indie scene, good ol' Tom wanted to make an EVN after a string of smaller hits. Little did I know the attention that title, Cinders, would grab in the independent gaming world on its release a year later. So sit back and enjoy!
