Dan: The Twisted Turnabout:
-Nick’s profile should probably have a description… Although I had forgotten you come from the Spanish section!
-Alternate title: “Dude, Where’s My Turnabout?”
-What the…?! Spanish!? What am I supposed to do!? “Examinar”? WHAT DOES THAT MEAAAAAAN
-Turnabout Sisters 2002. Nice… I prefer it over 2001.
-Saturday afternoon, but… I like the almost-immersion ^_^
-Wait, I know what this means…. INVESTIGATION!! (Yes I’m slow)
-Grossberg doesn’t recognize an attorney’s badge any more…? Someone’s been hitting the booze hard.
-High Court Judge…? NUUUUU NOT STRINGS YOU MONSTER
-I think Grossberg is being very in-character :3 With a “Like the scent of fresh lemons, you see…” it’ll be perfect xD
-Ooooooooooooh Franzyyyyyyyyyyyyy. Too bad for her, Kristoph is going to get the jump on her before she can do this to Nick…
-The pigeons. They want bloooooooooooooooooooooood.
-Investigation ~ Opening 2002? Nuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu 2001 is bettar! Oh wellz, at least it’s consistently JFA
-It’s a good thing we happened to run into this apparently decisive witness right when we were going to leave, huh?
-Wait, this guy… is a painter?! Screw it, I don’t need to play any more cases; I don’t think anything else can trump THAT twist.
-Okey…. Guess it’s time for the next part. Lesse the Twist!
-HA! YES! AMAZING!
-Okay. Well. I love Phoenix. And you’re making him an evil murderer. But you’re doing it in an epic way, so <3
-Lmao! Where’d he get a gun? xD
Well, that was definitely a surprising twist! “The attorney is the criminal!” has always been an interesting idea, but it was never too plausible because the attorney wouldn’t prove that he’s the criminal. But with the amnesia…
Besides the middle section that was missing due to time constraints, I think the biggest issue is that there isn’t much gameplay; even after the twist, you just watch the events unfold. If there was one or two Franzy v. Phoenix AAI-style rebuttals where Franzy proves that Nick did it, I think that would’ve improved it. Also, if you stretched out the finishing segment that way, it would take longer for the player to realize that Nick actually is the murder.
Anyway, even though there wasn’t too much for me to do and the middle was missing and there were some typos, it was still really enjoyable with a great twist!
Diego: Turnabout Twins:
-Twins? Oh ho, this will hopefully prove interesting…
-An interesting intro… It lined up with the music, which I find doesn’t happen that often when people use the game’s intro music. Sometimes the text didn’t stay long enough, but… I guess you had a lot of dialogue, eh?
-Franzy is defending Nick?
After Dan’s entry… xD
-Aw, Adrian is the defendant? Oh well.
-Killed with a shoe? xD (inb4 the twist is the murder weapon is Shoe the cat, not the actual shoe)
Well, that was nice and short and sweet. I’m playing it a day late, but… xD I think the fact that you didn’t have any other big jokes made it so unexpected
Zeel: The Undecided Turnabout:
-Wow. Great intro… funny, perfect music.
-I don’t get the Haipe reference, but… xD (Haven’t played the TMafia preview)
-“And hey – would I lie for weed? I don’t think so” xD
-SHUT UP MAYA THEY’RE STEPLADDERS
-BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA …I don’t get it.
-Well, there ARE more murders than child births…
-The only thing better than domestic violence is self-referential comedy!
-Lmao! XD Also props for Le Mis!
-D’awwwwwwww that’s Nick for you! Corrupting Pearls properly, unlike some people. (Killing = bad. Stealing = GO NUTS)
-H-Hey! D: We worked hard on NYT and TSub… Of course, the only thing that sucks more than the fangame plots and players is the authors!
-Mansion… fetish? Lolwut?
-Yay I’m a moron!
-“Oh look, a shamelessly stolen background.” Hey, that’s exactly what I was thinking!
-Oh wow I know this song from some random yaoi flash video… …Gah why did I admit that?! >.<
(I can’t decide whether you should live or die~)
-Silly Wright, those are only on Youtube and Newgrounds!
-Normally I would complain about cut-off sprites, but…
-“Yeah, I guess so… Wait, no!”
-Who’s Mike Tenay, anyway?
-Shouldn’t relliK’s husband’s name be xoF, not Xof?
-I think that’s the third joke you’ve stolen from Family Guy, but I don’t mind~
-xDDDDDDD “Now can we go in?”
-God, this guy is an idiot. Everyone knows that zebras are just cover agents for antelopes!
-Props for Frankenstein reference.
-Antelopes…? HA! CALLED IT!
-“Very reliable unsourced sources”?
-I like my horoscope :3
-I like this guy’s conspiracy theories xD
-Oh noez, no super-obvious instructions on what to do next! D:
-Random Penny cameo xD
-…And if you ever think it’s doing those things, consult Aperture Science technicians immediately!
-“Limit you played on your own imagination”…? Reminds me of 1984.
-ALL HAIL THE SPIRIT OF IMAGI!
-Oh noez, random face-shadow switch!
-Also WHERE DID YOU GET THESE ‘HUH…?’ SFXS THAT INCREASE IN PITCH?! DO WANT!
-Terrrrrry! You can do it! I believe in youuuuuuu!
Time for a break… Back!
-Lolz, I wondered about “centre” too xD
-Wow, Nick has an impressive knowledge of Salinger, Lennon, and Copperfield.
-I can’t figure out this contradiction… I was drifting in and out, cuz Ghost Whisperer was on
-An upside-down fox mask…? WAIT, relliK said her husband’s name was Xof!
-“Satan’s glorious name” xD
-“killer – that’s relliK spelled backwards, Mike Tenay!” Love the reversal xD
-D: Duncan said I was hired, and when I went upstairs, I got locked outside her room with nothing to do… Good thing I randomly saved beforehand, tho!
-April 1? Uh oh…
-Well, he doesn’t really fit the bench, but… okay, he’s new and interesting xD
-ZOMG IT’S ELLE …Okay maybe not.
-…Wow, that was the best court overview ever xD
-You stole that last joke from Family Guuuuuuuuuuuy
Well… This was a super-funny and entertaining trial. I always wondered if it was possible to make an actual comedy trial (instead of a comedy that takes place during a trial) and while this doesn’t go to the end, it was still really great! Unfortunately, there didn’t really seem to be a big twist >_>… but I really liked the trial!
(Note: No, I haven’t played Turnabout Orange yet)
Mimi Mika: Conspire a Turnabout:
-*gasp* In Media Res?! And Hotel Dusk music?!? AND KLAVIER HAS BEEN CONVICTED? YES I LOVE THIS TRIAL.
-AAAAAANGST. But this is much better than random angst conveniently introduced in order to get the two characters in question to start making out :3
-December 26…? TSub xD
-I really think everyone’s being in-character… You’ve even captured Ema’s could-be-a-crush-or-could-be-straight-up-dislike of Klavier (even if she doesn’t talk that much about him… I’m getting that vibe from her)
-Aaaaaargh I did NOT like this song from TWEWY… I also never got why it was… like… 3 minutes long even though you never had to spend more than 3 seconds on the game over screen
-Also December 25? Is that a flashback or a typo?
-That last scene… was certainly interesting.
Well, to be honest, there’s not much here. However, I think you have a solid foundation for a really interesting case. As I already mentioned, I think everyone seemed really in-character. I’m guessing the twist was about Daryan… but I didn’t really see how it all connected to the plot xD I’d be really interested in seeing the full version of this, once you get a chance to complete it!!
TFA: Turnabout Checkmate
-ZOMG GK2 SPOILERS. AND THE FACT THAT I RECOGNIZE IT AS A GK2 IMAGE MEANS I’VE ALREADY SEEN IT WHICH MEANS I’VE ALREADY BEEN SPOILED FOR IT BUT ZOMGWTFBBQ I like how this (apparently) takes place during JFA but you’ve explained why we don’t know about it
-ZOMG AN AAI TALKING-BG?! DO WANT!!
-ZOMG I’M SAYING ZOMG A LOT
-I like his theme music C-C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER!
-ZOMG Killers everywhere! You could’ve made the flight attendant Cammy…. xD
-ZOMG GK2 MUSIC SPOILERS I COULD RECOGNIZE THOSE FIRST 5 SECONDS ANYWHEREEEEEE
-Lol at Squire being a Nick fanboy xD
-xD at Grimm
-O-ONE SIXTY PROOF?! That’s like… moonshine! …It really is American, isn’t it? xD
-For some reason, when Grimm speaks without her glasses she disappears… (Something wrong with the hosted image?)
-Lol way to go Nick xD That’s right, annoy everyone!
-Hmmmmm I wonder how starting the flames with the wine and putting them out with the stones proves Squire didn’t do it? I mean, we’re solving the mysteries, but I don’t see why Grimm is getting so worked up.
-There it is :3
-I was wondering how the police got access to the crime scene if the key was supposedly destroyed… Yay!
-Zomg twist! xD But there’s another possibility: What if the killer took Cornelius’ crown with him when he left the scene? After all, he was unconscious, which would make stealing the crown pretty easy…
-…Wow, another twist xD These people sure are delusional... (This kinda reminds me of Detective Academy Q, actually)
-For the record, there weren’t too many of these cuz I was really into it
Well, there were two impressive twists! The king was alive, and it was all America… It was a bit short and could’ve been fleshed out a little bit more, but I know there were time constraints, so… :3 All the OCs were well-done and memorable… and I’d like to see Grimm in another case xD Also the music was really good :3
