For our first project, we tackled Kamaitachi no Yoru: Rinne Saisei, the story of two college students left snowbound at a remote mountain residence. There, along with ten other people — owners, employees, and guests — they discover there’s a potential murderer in their midst. As the body count grows, their only option is to solve the mystery… or die trying. Oh, and did we mention the cute black cat with a knack for showing up at the worst possible times?

So it only makes sense that for our next project, we’re going with the story of two college students left snowbound at a remote mountain residence. There, along with ten other people — owners, employees, and guests — they discover there’s a potential murderer in their midst. As the body count grows, their only option is to solve the mystery… or die trying. Oh, and did we mention the cute black cat with a knack for showing up at the worst possible times?

That’s right. We’re talking about Innocent Grey’s Caucasus, a VN that takes the basic structure of Kamaitachi and spins it in a much different direction. If Kamaitachi was Sue Grafton, Caucasus is pure Agatha Christie — a classic mansion murder-mystery in all the very best ways. And since it’s from Kara no Shoujo devs Innocent Grey, it’s got their hallmarks all over it: beautiful art, sharp plotting, gratuitous sex/violence, and a heaping helping of the dark rot that festers at the heart of the human condition.
 

Status

We’ve been quietly working on Caucasus since last year, and as of right now, we’ve got 100% of the scripts translated, 100% of the images edited, and a large chunk of the programming done. Over the next few months, we’ll be shifting our focus to script editing, QC/TLC, and lots and lots of playtesting.
 

Staffing

Helping us on the hacking side this time is the incredibly talented Oneline, a programmer with a proven record of beating the finicky IG engine into submission. Wanna see some examples? Go visit Oneline’s Workshop over on Discord.

We’re also recruiting for a proofreader. If you’ve got native-level English skills, are a stickler for grammar/consistency, and have a keen eye for detail, feel free to drop us a line at team@projectkamai.com. Experience with previous TL projects preferred.
 

 
And that’s it! There’s a dearth of good mystery VNs out there, so we’re excited to bring this one to Western audiences at last. When, you ask? When it’s done, we answer. We’re not looking to rush anything. Rest assured, we’ll post more news here as there’s more to share.
