Hahaha! Thanks Struess! ;) No problem!

Hello! I am really sorry about that. I don't know why the game stopped working, (possibly due to a new version of Ren'py). But I was able to track down the problem in the code. I've just uploaded a new build which should fix the issue. :)

Hello! If you have the early access game, then you already have it! Simply make sure the game is updated in Steam, and the new file will be available to play in your copy of the game! Anyone who buys the Early Access version at any point will be able to play all six Files as they come out at no extra cost. :)

Thank you!! Sorry about that, sure here's a new Discord link ! :)

Thanks so much!! ;)

Thanks! Fair enough — though you can use the skip button (Control in the desktop app) to skip text you've already seen. :)

Thanks for playing! Wish I had more time to develop the concept a little, but I guess that's just the nature of a jam! Glad you enjoyed it! :)

Thanks a lot! I really appreciate it! :)

Thanks! Sorry about that — I updated the code a few days ago without testing it thoroughly which broke some of the answers. It's fixed now. :)

Well you sure have me stumped! I'll be puzzling over this all night. Nice! :)

The downloadable version is now available. :)

Thanks so much! :)

Sure!

Alright, no worries! Thanks for reaching out! :)

Hello! You are  welcome to translate the game, I would be honored! It is pretty long, however, at 156k words. If you do decide to translate it, I would also be interested in officially implementing your translation if that would be okay. So let me know! :)

Thanks!! I use Cheetah3D for modeling and rendering, post-processing in Photoshop. :)

This looks really cool!

Wow, that is so sweet of you! Thank you very much, I'm so glad you enjoyed the game! :)

Check here for updates about the game!

In the last few stages of the Canadian detective competition, Detective Larika Downs is determined to find out who could be running such a questionable contest. Joining her are Detectives Tads, Anadyne, Struess, and Viu. By working together, will they find out the truth?

Methods: The Canada Files is a prequel visual novel to Methods: The Detective Competition. It features a new style of mystery-solving gameplay designed to present more of a challenge than the first game, styled after classics of the mystery genre like Ace Attorney and Danganronpa. Playing Methods first is recommended, but not required to understand the story.

I'm launching it in Early Access with the first File completed, and five more planned! It's currently 15% off for its Early Access launch! I hope you will try it out :)

No worries! And let me know if you need a tester for Mac— I'm able to test for both Catalina & Ventura operating systems. :)

Congrats on release! Can't wait for Mac version! ;)

Sure thing!

Hello! The submit button will become noticeably clickable once you've selected the correct half-truths. Here's a hint: You don't necessarily need to select one from each category. The first puzzle in the game requires only submitting one half-truth. I made this for a very quick game jam so admittedly the UI design is a little confusing. Sorry about that!

Unfortunately that's the (rather bleak) true ending! Taking down the warden would be what the sequel would be about — if I ever get around to it. :)

Oh great! Glad it worked! ;)

Oh my god, well first of all thank you so much! I really appreciate your comment! Version 1.0 feels like so long ago now haha, it's nice to hear from you again! Yeah, the way itch.io handles paid games that have been free in the past is definitely not ideal, and I ran into a similar issue before. I'm happy to simply give you a download key: https://lockedon.itch.io/methods/download/9IsUbx4U94HswczfYqdjKke0VNx6iyrRDWSmFN... I hope that helps you access the DLC content — let me know if some devious person grabbed it before you could, in which case I'll send another one to you through email. If the key doesn't help, I can also just send you the game with a google drive link or something. I'll get it to you somehow! ;) Anyway, thanks again and sorry about the bugs with itch!

Thank you! Unfortunately not, but the "unlock all chapters feature" will let you resume playing where you left off without much trouble. :)

Wow, that's awesome!!

Thanks!! :)

Thank you so much! That's very nice of you to say! :)

Wow thanks so much! Glad you liked it!! :)

Forgot to set this post to be live — whoops!

Haha, sure thing! :)

Hello! Thanks so much! That's really nice of you. No bug there I think —keep looking for the right answer by clicking the key head/key blade. I could stand to add a message there that prompts you to keep searching so you know you haven't found the right answer though. :)

Oh, that's extremely cool — thank you! Steam keys will become available here after I release it on Steam, and should show up on the itch download page when I add them. But it's been a bit hit or miss, sometimes people don't get access to them even though they bought the game here. In that case, feel free to reach out to me here in the comments or on Twitter or anywhere else, and I'll just give you a Steam code. :)

Thank you so much! I'm glad to hear you liked it! Good luck with your own projects. :)

Hello — Thanks! Not necessarily, as there is a recap available and I do try to explain as much as I can within the story. I guess it depends on if you don't mind watching very janky animations from 2011! :)

Thank you so much! That means a lot to me! I'm looking forward to playing Thief's Roulette on PS4! :)

Hmm, yes. It's regrettable that I didn't have more time to fully flesh out that character's change. It was hard to sell that while keeping the story short, without making the story all about her. I'm glad you enjoyed it anyway.
