Igrasil Studio has introduced to Steam their upcoming murder-mystery visual novel called Bloody Chronicles: New Cycle of Death on the 13th of December this 2018. The visual novel is a mix between intriguing murder mysteries and social slice-of-life stories. Igrasil Studios have made sure to bring to you a unique visual novel experience!
A serial killer is on the loose and only you can stop him! In Bloody Chronicles we look at the story of Koyama Kazuki, a young detective working for the Igrasil. While working on several, seemingly unrelated cases, you find clues pointing to the person who killed your parents. Can you stop this new cycle of death before it’s too late?
The story of this visual novel focused around Kazuki mainly. This unfortunate individual lost his parents at a very young age. He and his parents were in what was believed to be a car accident, but in reality it wasn’t an accident. It is suspected that it is the work of the so-called Phantom serial killer. Later on Kazuki graduates from the police academy. Luckily for him he was recruited by the non-governmental organisation Igrasil. This mysterious organisation solves murders, the police claims to be impossible to solve due to lack of evidence. On his missions Kazuki isn’t alone, alongside him are the crazy and funny Ishikawa siblings; Kaoru Moriyama, the daughter of a millionaire and the founder of the whole organisation; and Suzumi, the head of the organisation who is responsible for making all the major decisions.
The art of Bloody Chronicles: New Cycle of Death in my opinion looks very anime-like and well made. The characters are very beautiful and the backgrounds are detailed. The vivid colours and the setting are interesting and immerse you truly in the story. A very interesting thing I stumbled upon was that Igrasil Studio claims that their artist has worked for the studio that produced hit animes like Toriko and Tokyo Ghoul. They promise to use their experience to make something great!
In every scene there is cool music playing in the background and there is also voice acting that is in English. So if you are like me and prefer to listen to the characters talk you are lucky. The only issue for me was that I would really like the voice actors recordings to be louder than the background music. For me the music was too loud. There were some settings for that in the menu but they didn’t seem to help a lot.
I can’t wait for Bloody Chronicles: New Cycle of Death to fully come out on Steam so that I can find out what my end of the story will be. I am excited and I wonder if I will be able to solve the mystery. Do you think you would be able to do so?
