A downloadable game for Windows



At the height of the industrial steam revolution, a young woman's death has sparked intrigue in a small, derelict city district. Edwin Vayne, a once prominent young detective, has been called into these inner city slums by a mysterious, yet very personal letter to investigate. Follow Edwin as he unravels a mystery that runs deeper than he might have known, and help him to make decisions that will alter the course of the story for better or for worse. Will Edwin prove himself up to the task, or will this particular mystery elude even him?

Genre: Adventure, story-driven, detective, storygame, steampunk.
A story focused game, that feels like an interactive novel.

Will this game be available for Apple anytime soon?

Sadly we currently lack the possibility to deploy a mac version.
But we'll keep it in mind! Sorry. 

Forever hitting my enter key to move the story on, just got tiresome. Definitely talented people but this game is not for me

We're sorry.
The limited time of the gamejam kinda got us at the end and we had to scratch a few gameplay elements we would have loved to include.
But we'll learn from it and improve in the future! :)

A big thank you, because you still took the time to leave a comment!  

I loved this game! Great job, you have my vote! :)

Aww! That super nice. Thank you so much! :)  

Wow this is looks awesome!

Thank you!

It's crazy how much of an impact a game this short can have. I'm sitting here wishing I could play more of it. Awesome job, everyone!

Thank you sooo much!

We hope we can deliver and bring you either a remastered version with a bit new content or an all new second installment ;)

Very fun game! I was terribly disappointed when it ended ;P you all did wonderfully! I've only played through once so I'm a bit curious about  how the ending changes based on your choices  (The only scenes where I saw alternatives didn't in my opinion seem very important to the overall plot) which I suppose just means I'll have to play through again huh? :)

I don't want to spoil anything for those who haven't played through (Which you should hurry up and do right about now ;) so I won't say too much about the ending I saw but I ASSUME it was a "Good" ending (I mean I didn't die and we "caugh-illed" the bad guy) I'd be very interested to see more games starring (or featuring, I'm not picky) Edwin Vayne.

Oh! Before I end my rant, er, review, I wanted to say I really enjoyed the art style, the town was rather fun to explore! (Though I wish I got to beat up some more thugs ;P)

Good job! And good luck!

*Puts a note to the checklist* More thugs to beat up. ;)
We'll keep that in mind for a remastered version or a second game.  

Thank you very much for the review! We're happy you enjoyed Dear Edwin. 

WOW! This game is phenomenal. I haven't made it all the way through but my wife and son are playing also. They were both very excited to see a detective/investigation game. Great work, team!

Thank you very much! 

If you can think of anything that you'd love to see improved feel free to let us know, because we're currently planning to polish it a bit more or make a second installment, that has all the elements in it that we had to leave to due to being short on time. :) 

Hi. My name is Mel. I was wondering if I could translate your game into Spanish. If it doesn't bother you, of course.

PD: Great job with this game, i love it <3

Thank you. 
But we prefer to keep only the english version for now. If we ever plan to translate it, we would most likely hire someone. 

Oh, I see. Thanks for answer <3
