Okay, A Real Update
In all seriousness, I have made some progress with Detective Butler. All that's really left is to write one chapter and patch up some other parts of the story. I ended up changing a few scenes that were in the old demo, but the story remains the same. CGs have been redone by the character artist Shadilyn, as you can see in the picture above. I also changed the GUI and BG filter to something a lot more clean. You can find screenshots in the "Downloads" section of the Detective Butler website.
Notice that I've also taken down the demo. The plan is that the next link you'll see on there will be for the full game! Oh, and did I mention that I'm working on an OP movie?
