Bloody Chronicles releases the new Japanese visual novel for Linux, Mac and Windows in Steam games. While a successful Kickstarter back in 2016 helped fund the project. Thanks to indie developer Igrasil Studio, who now releases the gritty, crime thriller visual novel.

Bloody Chronicles is an Early Access title. So players can experience all the currently available content, while providing feedback directly to Igrasil Studio. As they works to perfect various elements of the game’s final version.

A serial killer is on the loose and only you can stop the Phantom. The story focuses on Koyama Kazuki, a young detective employed by Igrasil. An agency that investigates murders that the authorities have deemed unsolvable. While working on several, seemingly unrelated cases, you’ll find clues pointing to the person who killed Kazuki’s parents. So it’s up to you to stop this new cycle of death before it’s too late.

Kazuki’s partners include the crazy and funny Ishikawa siblings. So these are Kaoru Moriyama, the daughter of a millionaire and founder of the organization. And also Suzumi Misao, the head of the organization.

With a delightfully quirky cast. Players will form bonds with the main characters. While trying to solve the overarching case of the Phantom Killer. A criminal with a flawless track record.
