Unexpectedly good!
Played this game with low expectations since there weren't that many reviews. Puzzles are moderate in terms of difficulty. Story is good, it was kind of episodic at first but I love how it all ties up in the end.

Root Film
This is a sequel to Root Letter but you don't need to have played that game to enjoy this one. It's nice to visit the Shimane prefecture again and the murder mystery plot is quite interesting.
If you enjoy games such as the Ace Attorney series you'll probably enjoy this one as well.
