Vile Halicarnassus

"Felix and Jay: the city's two best detectives.

Not without a few secrets of their own and a hell of a lot of coffee, the two do what sleuths do best: solve mysteries no one else will touch with a thirty foot electrical pole." - Author's description

Author's note: "This was made for a personal 48-hour game jam. It's a mystery visual novel with a little bit of puzzle-solving mixed in."
