    Hi all,

    Twelve Absent Men is now available on Android.

    Download it here:

    -----
    Twelve Absent Men is a legal drama video game set for release on mobile and eventually in a 3D PC port/upgrade. (Mobile version set for release in November, 2016).

    Twelve Absent Men is a satirical legal adventure game with comedic characters, an enthralling storyline and a polished, modern cartoon look. Solve puzzles, confound witnesses and outwit the state prosecutor in this race to that crucial verdict: not-guilty!


    Here's our upcoming trailer for mobile:





    Here are some shots of my approach to the 3D art so far:

    The 3D scenes are great but I'm interested to see how the characters will come out on the background and what visual style you'll use for them.

    I'm thinking of making the characters slightly stylized and based on the cartoon images on the mobile link. :)

    Oh, I missed the link. Interesting styles for the characters but lacks expressiveness. Also the dialog boxes are really ugly as of now (color and shape) and kind of ruin the screens.

    Hey all,

    Here's a new pic for everyone.

    And a bit of a summary: Inspired by the legal drama genre, Twelve Absent Men combines elements of satire and humour with the seriousness of a court of law. It is self-aware in following the “mythic” traits of legal dramas: that law is comedic, justice is swift, the right side always wins and judges have an (almost) infinite amount of patience.

    Hey all,

    Been hard at work reworking the backgrounds to make them 2d/cartoonish. :gentleman:

    Take a look at how it's going:

    Hey all,

    Here's a preview of some of our new systems. :)

    Twelve Absent Men features an innovative take on game-ifying the rules of evidence! The unique use of witness testimony allows players to pit witnesses against each other – using one witness to challenge the credibility of another, poking holes in alibis and raising questions of who really committed the crime.
