A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Only the Prologue is out! Ch.1 coming soon!


Fate Finder is a romantic mystery visual novel game that immerses players into the role of a private investigator who runs a moderately successful business out of their apartment due to their special ability to see the red string of fate between everyone except herself. Fate Finder is based on folklore in which there is a red string of fate between soulmates. 

Players take on the role of Moira Inoue, a private investigator who runs the business “Fate Finder.” Clients come to Moira in search of answers as to who is their soulmate or why their supposed twin flame is acting suspiciously.

Moira wonders why she cannot see her own red string of fate, maybe the truth would hurt more than it would comfort. Perhaps, the reason she cannot see her red string is that it is nonexistent. By completing the cases, players unlock more of Moira’s story and options to explore and discover the truth of whether she has a soulmate of her own or not.

I love the demo and the premise! The art for Moira and the shrine is great! I'm currently trying to create my own game, so I understand the massive challenge you are facing but you are killing it! I have some hopefully helpful notes

  • The prologue is written great but there isn't a lot visually going on as she tells her story about first seeing the strings. Is there going to be some art representing how she starts to see these strings of fate?
  • The UI and text boxes seem pretty vanilla, have you thought about adding some animation or character to it? Maybe some sound effect that plays as the text rolls by? Dream Daddy has some great UI and would be a great reference for what I'm talking about.
  • When it transitions from the end of the prologue to the beginning of the first chapter, it's unclear to me where we are and how much time has passed. maybe you should have a transition piece of art that shows where we are and how much time has passed? 
  • Sakura's color scheme seems to make her look less eye catching and less interesting as Moira is. When you see them side by side it almost looks like their art style is slightly different. I'm not sure if adjusting her outfit would make her feel more a part of that world? Her eyes also look really big which makes it look like it's a different style. Just a thought.

Overall, this demo is wonderful and I'm excited to see more of this game! I don't mean to be nitpicky, I just see so much potential in this game and want it to succeed. :)

Love the demo so far, and I was hooked at the end. I was so ready to cause trouble until boom, end demo.

A few things with the background as Moira's color schemes are grounded red, it was hard to focus on Moira as some of the backgrounds (japanese shrine and living room especially) have shades of red. It was hard to focus on Moira because of these "out there" background colors. It would help to slightly blur the backgrounds or make them neutral to allow Moira to pop out more. 

Overall, great job with the visual novel!

Thank you so much and I'm glad you liked the demo! Also thank you for the feedback, it is something we can think about in a future update. 

Thank you again!
