I’m still deciding on whether i want to reveal the killer and let the reader choose the gender or reveal it in the middle and set only one gender. And maybe I’ll ask readers what they prefer. I don’t know yet.

If we have the option to romance with the killer, it would probably be best to choose their gender


Yeah cause if it’s a guy I won’t romance I’ll bring to justice


I hope they add gender choice


Its kinda make sense in romance IF to romance the villain and amazing job on your first IF


This is a tricky one. Because if the Killer’s gender were to be revealed, it would likely be pretty obvious who the killer is. For example, if the MC was interogatting suspects, and one of them was presented with the option to have their gender chosen, then it would be pretty obvious which one is the killer.

@EerrieVirgo , i don’t know what your plans are for the mystery, but there are two ways I can see you letting the player choose the killer’s gender without also spoiling their identity.

Option 1: The killer is one of the other gender selectable characters, and it becomes a big plot twist. Please don’t do this, though, as it would break everyone’s hearts.

Option 2: and in my opinion, the better option is that the killer leaves behind clues which clue in the MC as to their identity. For example, they could leave things behind at the crime scene typically associated with one gender. Or the killer could leave behind a letter for the MC, and it is worded something like:

"Catch me if you can detective… From a very naughty boy/girl. "

I have faith that you can figure it out. Your WIP is very promising, and I look forward to future updates. Remember, a good mystery is one that an attentive player will be able to figure out via the clues you leave, but not one that is impossible to figure out before the answer is revealed.

Good luck. :slight_smile:


@Bretayal837 I made up my mind that I will add gender for the killer. It will be challenging because I don’t want people to know who they are at the first clue, you know? But, I will figure it out. Thank you for reading this WIP :hugs:.

@Leinco Exactly my thought! You gave great ideas and thank you for believing in me. I will continue after my exam. So, maybe or hopefully in early July I will update the WIP. Option 1 made me laugh btw :joy:. I don’t know, maybe I would like to break everyone’s heart :smiling_imp:.


@Scott_Redmond Yeahh, I think so too. I’ll see what I can do.

@Harley_Robin_Evans I can relate actually because I, too would choose a female RO :joy:.


I like what you have so far. It does seem like it is connected to the group your partner was apart of.


Here is a question about the stats in the game will you use the skills check or just the personalities slides or just keep it simplified because this is your first project ?

What would be a bigger twist is if the Mc meets them while not realizing they’re the killer and goes on a date with them.


@ayoub_hadou I don’t explore the stats yet. So I don’t know what I will do with the stats. But if you have suggestions about it, I’m open to them.

@WarMachine658 Oh my god! that would be shocking for mc. I will be thinking about all the possibilities on how to reveal the killer. Thank you for your idea!
