Theme interpretation
We took it very literally: a shot in the moonlight. We punned around a bit and quickly agreed on "High Moon" sounding cute. From there on, the western theme kind of imposed itself upon us.

Great work! The story is well written and the graphics and sound design add a lot to the atmosphere (big kudos for the music, it was nice to go from suspect to suspect and have a nice new track each time).

Yay, another text adventure game! You’re artwork is very nice and adds a lot to the game.

I did notice it was a little odd that Agnes smiles while telling you the sad news though. And some of the dialog was a little slow. Lots of just clicking the only option to get through an exposition. Maybe look into condensing it some.

Loved the vampire twist. Overall very nice story telling.

I really enjoyed this! It was a fun mystery, though there was a minor bug with two dialog options giving the same response from Pierce.
