A unique and immersive live-action mystery-adventure, surrounding the theme of eternal life. Solve an age-old mystery using your powers of deduction to uncover the truth. Collect clues, establish a hypothesis, and use logic to break through the mysteries.
The Shijima family have suffered a chain of inexplicable deaths over the past century. When Haruka Kagami, a mystery novelist, visits the Shiijmas, she finds herself taking on four different murder cases—occurring at different points in time.
The red camellia and the Fruit of Youth, which invite only death.
And the truth behind it all, waiting to be uncovered…
A live-action mystery game. Haruka Kagami, the main character, is an up-and-coming mystery writer. Sharp and perceptive, she excels at solving mysteries, as well as creating them.
The player first sees the entire murder as it unfolds, with their own eyes. All of the keys needed to unravel the mystery can be found somewhere in the video itself.
Use the clues you have gathered to come up with a hypothesis in the cognitive space.
Build together a connected path of logic, and identify the killer.
Uncover the truth of the murders.
The Centennial Case: A Shijima Story will release on May 12, 2022 for the PS4, PS5, and Switch and on May 13, 2022 for PC.
