“Romance Detective” Solves Crimes of Passion in This Cute Visual Novel
Swaggering forward with a rose clenched firmly in her teeth and her fedora tipped low over her sunglasses, Romance Detective is here to solve the case. No murders or deaths in the sweet town of Lovebloom, however. Instead, Romance Detective (and her confused partner Romance Cop) tackles the case of the missing vase, which on the side is stamped proudly with a giant heart. Romance Detective might not be certified, she might not have anything to go off of, but she knows that this was definitely a crime of passion.
And, hey, what do you know, she’s right.
Romance Detective is a sweet, silly, short little story about a navy-haired detective and her confused, blue-haired partner as they chase down the mysterious Romance Thief. Of course, once Romance Thief is caught, the story doesn’t end there. What could have driven Romance Thief to commit a crime of such heinous depths (stealing a gaudy vase from a museum)? The truth is stranger than you might think. Hint: it involves a rocket ship to the moon.
