-

"My name is Riley, and I used to be just your typical high school student. Demons, ghosts, monsters... until recently, they were just fictional concepts.

That is, until I met someone who changed my life. They showed me that the occult was very real... and, what's more, very dangerous. It was a fateful encounter that would end up changing my future, and that of everyone around me.

But, first, we should start at the beginning. One Spring day, I agreed to meet my friend at swimming practice. That was the day I discovered who, and what, I really was..."


Plot

Phantom Ban Detective Agency centers around Riley and Dameon; two high school detectives that fight strange beings known as Phantoms. Phantoms are summoned unconsciously by people known as Espers through their strong inner desires, and emotional trauma. These phantoms act to fulfill these desires and wreak havoc on their victim’s minds. Together they fight to protect their school and solve a strange mystery involving a forgotten friend.

Why we posted

Hello and welcome to our first full length visual novel project!

We are Obento Mori a small team working towards creating quality content and creating a community around our works. We hope that by sharing our progress with game dev communities we will receive support, feedback and advice on how we can proceed.

We are currently in the process of developing a demo (for Phantom Ban Detective Agency) in preparation for kickstarter. Half our team is working on as a commission. In order for us to create a full length version of this game to the maximum of our vision we will require support in all forms.

If there is anything you guys can offer please don't hesitate to share with us. We are aiming to update our status on these websites: Twitter | Tumblr
Facebook coming soon~

Our current questions:

What do you guys think?
Advice for how we can improve?
Best/prefered social media?
How can we get more people to see this project?
What are things we can do to generate more interest for our project?

Thank you so much for stopping by!

    Sounds very interesting! I'm so inspired, I came up with a logo for these "Phantom Detectives".

    I don't really think that this is the appropriate place to post something like this, as it has nothing to do with mabinogi...

    That aside though, the game looks pretty cute. The concept is definitely not very original, but if the game is fun, that's not as important...
    As for how to promote it... I'm no expert, but I'd suggest releasing teaser videos on youtube... and to not post on sites where it doesn't belong, like here ^-^; ... I came here for fun mabi posts, not ads, even if they are interesting.
