Root Letter is a very personal project for us. Character designer Minoboshi Taro and I share a passion for Japanese teen movies from the seventies. We always wanted to work on something inspired by those feelings. Things like first loves and memories from our time at school. The Kadokawa Group has always had a wealth of mystery series, either as books or movies, so we thought we should work on a videogame with similar themes too, following Kadokawa’s established tradition.
Root Letter Features:
An intense murder mystery set in a gorgeous, real-word, rural Japanese setting.
Stunning Visual Novel artwork from the renowned artist Minoboshi Taro.
Increased gameplay elements – search for clues, present evidence and explore environments.
Travel freely around Shimane, visiting real world locations and interviewing suspects.
Interrogation mode allows you to present evidence to characters and catch them out in lies.
Unravel the truth from your pen-friend’s letters – was she telling the truth, was she even real?
Make difficult choices as you straddle an investigation spanning 15 years.
Five different endings with wildly different routes – for a huge level of replayability.
Incredible Soundtrack from composer Takashi Nitta and lead voice actor role for Noriko Hidaka (Ranma)
