I love the concept and the art is great, but the speed of the text makes it really difficult to appreciate. I can't even keep up with the text on its own, let alone while managing the picture. I think maybe giving the player the ability to pause/advance the text would help out a lot.

There is a REALLY cool game in here somewhere but I just can't figure it out! I love the idea of answering questions with the painting pieces but there is too much I don't know about how to play that it is frustrating and hard to follow along. I was hoping that if I kept with it I would figure it out but after some time I was just more lost as more details got added at such a fast text pace that I couldn't keep up. Give us a little more detail on how to play and I think you have a gem on your hands. 

The game has an interesting art style and somewhere in there, an interesting idea as well. I assume you're supposed to build a crime scene by following along with the story but there's really no responsive or precise feedback in the game to tell me my progress. The points don't make sense, and nothing tells you how it changes and what they even mean. When the story ended, I had nothing put into the frame and not even a victory screen. Felt lost.

Dont know what am I supposed to do, the text is fast, the paintings are weird. The game doesn't even try to explain it self.

I really love the concept of this game. I think the painting to give answers was interesting and the story was enjoyable. Unfortunately I had trouble keeping up with reading the text and I missed out on a lot of the 'painting' because I was concentrating on reading. I love that there is a button to move the text on, but I think it would also be nice to have a pause button for slower reading. I like this game shows some really interesting stuff
