Fourth theory! There's a basement in the guesthouse that the culprit hid inside! They started the fire from down there! Then they killed Rudolf from down there too!

Fifth theory. The culprit hid on the first floor! Once they set the fire there, they went upstairs right before our group did! Then they actually caused part of the second floor to cave in, as they wanted to block our path! They noticed Rudolf had entered Guest Room #4 via the hole in the wall, so they went inside via the main door and stabbed him! Then they left via the same main door just as quickly! Of course, they locked the main door with their key after leaving! And finally, they jumped out of one of the many windows available to them in the hallway, the book archive, or Guest Room #5!!!

Hold it! I only said that because I assumed they took the stairs! But it's possible for them to take a different way up to the second floor without using the stairs! Which means the culprit could then arrive on the second floor AFTER our group did! Perhaps they climbed a rope or something through the floor of Guest Room #5! It's a devil's proof! The rest of my theory holds true!!!

Again, for my first theory. There's no problem if the status of the stairs changed from "blocked" to "not blocked" after the stairs collapsed!

My first theory, again. The culprit hid inside the utility room! Then they followed behind us! However, Battler caused the staircase to become unusable, trapping the culprit on the staircase -- neither the first nor second floor! The staircase is also adjacent to Guest Room #4, so the culprit found a way to get in, possibly using that same hole in the wall! Then they killed Rudolf, left via the door of the guest room, and jumped out any of the windows available to them!!!

Sixth theory. As Rudolf entered the room through the hole in the wall, a trap activated, causing the mechanical noise that I heard. The thud was Rudolf's body falling. There was no need for the culprit to even be in the guesthouse, if they were at all!!!

The black thread has nothing to do with how Rudolf's murder was COMMITTED!

Standing next to Erika is a girl wielding a sword similar to what Erika had used. Her attire resembles that of a chess piece.

"Oh Dlanor you only decided to appear now?" Erika says while smirking.
"I was getting tired of this man making theories without any logical BACKINGS" Dlanor says.

Perhaps it was that 'cry'! The culprit's trained seagull cried, causing all the glass inside the guesthouse to shatter at once! It impaled Rudolf, causing him to stagger into the Guest Room #4! But the fatal blow came from the ceiling, which hit him in the head once more, and he toppled over onto the bed, blood exploding alongside the walls!

The culprit set up a trap that would activate when part of the room was stepped on. A knife would come down attached to string and stab the victim. The string would then pull back up, and the knife would come back up as well. However the fire burned up the knife and cut the string, or in this case a black thread!

When I told Genji I couldn't get into my room on the first night, he went to go get the chain cutters. This is what the text said:

>Genji, Krauss and you go back inside the guesthouse and into the utility room. Genji takes out a key and unlocks the trap door. He goes down it then comes back up with the clippers. The three of you then go up to your room.

Clearly, there was a trap under my bed. The trap door of the utility room!

Logic error!!!

You try to lift yourself up. Fumbling like a newborn you slowly are able to stand. You are in the middle of what appears to be a field covered in snow. You can’t see anything besides snow. Every direction is snow as far as you can see. No hills, just flat snow. Lonely or maybe empty are the first words that come to mind. It is a desolate land with no one but you.

On a second inspection, in the distance there is a small round dot.

You make it to the dot, it is a large bolder with a pair of straps like a backpack on it. Behind the rock is a sign, pointing outwards. Behind you the scenery changes, you can see the snow has turned into lush meadows and you can see buildings in the distance. The sun beaming down on the bright green grass.

The rock is nothing close to light; it feels inhuman to even be able to lift it. You start to walk, following the voice. You don’t know where, but it surely will lead you to someone, anyone.
The snow gets deeper, and it’s now up to your knees. You walk for hours, without rest; shouldering the rock upon you back. Why are you doing this? You don’t need to. If you turn back you can go to the green hills you just saw!

You continue with the rock, your footprints are turning pink. You can see each time you lift a leg your bloody foot comes into view. Even so, you continue.

Days pass, as you walk. Continuously without end. You see another dot on the horizon. Putting more energy into your strides you make it to the structure. It is a fence, leading in a straight line horizontally as far as you can see. In the middle there is a fence gate. Beside it is a sign pointing through the fence.

The gate is much too small to fit the rock through.

You toss boulder over and then pass through the gate.

You push on. The moment you enter the gate, a storm appears. The snow blinds you and you can’t see a thing but even so you push on. This is stupid, what I’m I fighting for? Why do I even bother with mysteries?

The snow gets even deeper, and you have to feel your way through the snow. You lose track of time, is it hours, days or weeks? You don’t know. Suddenly, you feel something. It’s cold and solid, pushing on it gives way and the storm suddenly stops. You look around, right beside a fence you see your own footprints in front of you. You are back to the same spot.

Checking the sign it seems to be pointing back to the fence.

You turn, heading back through the gate. You are blinded yet again. Time has lost meaning. All you know is the storm. It bashes you side to side as you slowly trip and fall through the path. Your face is frozen stiff; any attempt at talking would be futile. Is it because it’s fun? Or do I just like beating others?

Finally, the storm stops. You see a wooden fence this time. Pushing through it you are suddenly hit with an over powering sense for nausea. In front of you Erika in now standing, laughing.

The snow isn’t the same as before, it is now up to your waist, and each step takes more and more effort. The endless overcast continues as it starts to snow. It is justice? Is that something even to fight for? Eventually the fences running alongside you disappear and you are again in nothing but a snowy field.
Looking behind you appears a small table, with a glass of milk and cookies on them. Your mouth waters as you look at it. Surely a single bite won’t hurt.

You ignore the cookies and milk. And continue walking. However your legs give way. They won’t move any longer.

Crawling along the snow, one arm at a time. Face-fulls of snow cover your torso. You keep sinking into the snow. Again and again without end. Maybe you should just turn back, you may not even be going the right way… What is the right way? Is there a right way? Will fight for truth make me happy? Or I’m I even trying for that… IN the distance you can see what looks to be a door.

At that moment, from the opposite direction of the door, you hear a different voice, one different from all the others.
It's females voice, a figure forms out of the snow. Long black hair with half covering one of her eyes. "K-Kinjo, you can stop there is no need to push yourself! Y-you can come back with me..." The feel a sense of ease from the girl, like everything will be alright.

The silhouette disappears and you crawl over to the door. You can hear voices calling your name from the other side. Some are kind, other are harsh and full of malice. A silver key appear before you. It matches the door handle.

You open and see you are floating in what may be best to be described as an abyssal. With what appears to be an area without gravity you are a drift, slowly moving through the space. Suddenly something catches your attention, as a glimmering light. As you continue to float closer to the light, which has now split into multiples. They stroll past you, to what appears to be fragments of something. Like little gems they look clear and shaped similar to one. Inside of them you can see something, it’s… you? You can see yourself getting on the boat, another shows you sneaking around in a servant’s blouse, you interrogating everyone in the dinning room. Some even show Erika in positions similar to your own.

'Lies and deceit are the only remains of the past. In them we find comfort, fear, happiness and sadness, but was it worth it? The fight that shook our very world cannot be undone.
The shadow of lies carries over the truth, twisting it into nothing but shambles of deceit. It has carried over to now, and sunken root in the very foundation of the world. Or rather, it never left in the first place.
Driven by this non-existant feeling of guilt, the deeds are carried out without pause. Temptation is all that is left after the shadow is laid, so firmly placed that not even those closest to it can lift it.
That is, until a snowflake falls, it brings tides of something well-known to the world. The wind blows, as the shadow begins to rip. Never will this happen; the container of the snow needs to be tampered. Searching the world reveals the trickery.
The snow molten in the heat of anger, the wind frozen with the cold of fear. Only this feeling does one oppose; the great answer you may hold.'"

I float through the vast space of fragments, reflecting on my past mistakes. But this time, I'll go through it with more knowledge than I had the first time.

I begin from the very start of my adventure, the airport. The first day, December 30th, 1989.

I read the newspaper, indicating that there will be a record-breaking amount of snowfall. So it would be easy for anyone to know about the upcoming bad weather.

I then read the letter. Jessica is the one who wrote it, inviting me here. The letter also has a stamp on it, of a wing. So she must have gotten her father's stamp somehow, and sent the letter to me. She says she fears the culprit is among them, so this would pretty much exonerate Jessica herself.

Next I meet Terence Stewart, who doesn't show up again until the end. He informs me of the details of the crime, and that family members have been trying to cover it up. Odd, considering Jessica is trying to uncover the truth. So who would be trying to cover it up?

I then meet Ruon, after formally introducing myself as Kinjo. She then tells the captain to start the engines... leaving Battler behind?

Her excuse for that is that she mistook me for Battler, but I clearly said my name. I can't be too careful about this. Did she not want Battler to come, or was it not planned?

...In fact, if Battler was there... then where were Rudolf, Kyrie, and Ange...? Is this guy really...?

Some will use me while others will not, some have remembered while others have forgot.
For profit or gain I'm used expertly, I can't be picked off the ground or tossed into the sea.
Only gained from patience and time, can you unravel my rhyme?
I'm Knowledge.

The riddle Ruon had given to me to solve while we were on the boat. It seems pretty cryptic, and although the answer is knowledge, I can't help but feel this could be another way to write the motive for the culprit.

Some have remembered the crimes of three years ago, and others have forgot. What can be gained from patience and time? Restored happiness?

6:00 PM

Finally, the boat lands, and we meet Berune. The captain informs us not to leave anything behind, as he won't be coming back in the storm. He probably read the newspaper.

We then see Maria and Ange playing in the rose garden... Wait. So Ange was already here? If Ange was here then what was Battler doing? Why wasn't he with Rudolf or Kyrie? He carried nothing with him from the ship, so he couldn't have come to the island first, then went back for something!

And then we meet Jessica. She tells Battler, "long time no see". I wonder just how long.

We also see two portraits, one of Kinzo and one of Beatrice. But Beatrice isn't even relevant in the rest of the story, so what purpose do either of these serve?

We then enter the parlor, meeting the rest of the family. So Rudolf and Kyrie were here. Krauss and Jessica take me outside the room to talk.

"This gathering was meant to close those wounds, not reopen them. Also, I never met your father personally, he was a friend of the old head, my father. "

Now that the storm is here nobody can enter or leave the island.

Hideyoshi mentions he knows the name 'Goldbar' from somewhere. This makes sense later on when he calls me out for being a detective.

Eva doesn't speak up right away. She must still be upset over George's death. Battler mentions there will be presents after dinner. I wonder what everyone got.

Battler and Rosa go outside to get Maria and Ange. I follow. We have a snowball fight, but I don't think it's very relevant.

On my way out, I notice the portraits. "The eyes of the man look as if they could hold the fire of hell and burn you just from looking at them.
It won't be surprising if a little kid got nightmares from it. The other however feels as if it was mocking the artist."

I start up some nice conversation during dinner, talking about Christmas, when suddenly Hideyoshi mentions that I'm the son of Detective Gilligan Goldbar. Krauss then speaks.

"I warned you to behave you insolent brat! That case has been closed by the police, you don't have the jurisdiction to make this your playground."

So, this probably means Krauss wanted to put this case to rest. He did say that he was happy everyone could be here.

However, after learning this I am then kicked out of the mansion and sent to Guest Room #4 in the guesthouse.

7:45 PM

On inspection of the rooms I find that GR 3 and 2 are locked, however 1 is not. I wonder if this means anything. I enter GR1. Inside it looks practically the same as my room, however there is no closet and there are two beds and a few chairs around a table. There is a chain on the door.

Near the end of the game Battler tries to enter GR1 but it won't open. Perhaps the chain was set?

I sneak out and look through the window into the parlor. The cousins have unwrapped their presents. What are the presents?

I go down into the boiler room and meet Ruon, who was looking for a wrench... she then claims that she came down here to adjust the temperature. Huh, does she really need a wrench to do that?

Apparently a letter had been found earlier, probably written by Jessica again. It said that, once 'he' (me) finds the culprit, the writer would kill them. Sounds just like Jessica. So this probably means that while Kraus wanted to cover up the story, Jessica wanted it out in the open.

I apologize to Gohda in the kitchen, who ignores me. But as I leave his hand paused while washing the dish, so perhaps he thought better of me? Berune was in the room as well.

I notice Battler looking at the portrait of Beatrice. Beatrice = Kanon = Shannon = Yasu, so perhaps he's upset that they were never seen again...? Or rather, killed three years ago?

Upon entering the servant room I hear Manon talking over the phone. "Well where am I going to iron them then? Oh? The old one? Alright then, if I have to." I'm not sure what this means, if anything.

The storage room is locked at this time. 9:30 PM.

I go to the parlor. It's empty, and wrappings are everywhere, as if everyone just dropped what they were doing. The letter must have caused the party to break up.

I see Genji shoveling snow. Oddly enough I didn't see Genji when I first left the guesthouse. He gives a slight bow here.

In my room I find a piece of paper telling me to come to the book archive. Hideyoshi wrote this here and told Genji to put it in my room. So Genji must have realized I had left, as the room was empty.

Hideyoshi then tells me his version of the story in the book archive. Kinzo picked George to be the heir. But he had to solve that riddle first. The next morning Ruon reported that they saw a puddle of blood coming from underneath a door...inside the military base under the island. They used a welding torch to enter the room. George was dead, a bullet in his skull. Kinzo had also passed away according to the servants, and both Kanon and Shannon disappeared. Erika, who had washed up on the island, had cut off George's head. Erika was then tied up in the storage room (where Natsuhi is later killed here) but she somehow disappeared. There hadn't been a family gathering since.

A list of people on the island that day: Kinzo, Krauss, Natsuhi, Jessica, Rudolf, Kyrie, Battler, Hideyoshi, Eva, George, Rosa, Maria, Genji, Gohda, Ruon, Berune, Kanon, Shannon, Dr. Nanjo, and Erika. Ange was sick that year, so she couldn't come.

After the police stopped investigating Krauss had cement poured over the entrance. So he really did want the police to stop investigating things. But why? Why go this far?

Krauss then arrives and tells Hideyoshi that Eva wants him. No idea why she would want to talk to him now.

I then go to sleep, after Genji cuts the chain to my room.

I wake up from a terrible nightmare. In the hallway I see Eva, her body half out the door to her room, and the maid with black hair walking down the hall and turning around the corner. In other words, I saw Ruon myself that night!

"You're just like him. Him and that bitch! I don't need your help!" Eva's voice escalates to a yell. "Stop sticking your nose into places it doesn't belong!"

Who could she be referring to here? ...Hideyoshi and Jessica?! That would make sense, if she doesn't want anyone to keep bringing up the murder of George... but those two, Hideyoshi and Jessica, keep doing it!

I go back to sleep. The next morning I'm woken up by a phone, Genji calling me. Snow is at eye level, so I take the path Genji made last night. Kyrie and Rudolf exit the building shortly after I do.

I enter the dining room. Rosa, Maria, Battler, Ange, and Jessica are all in the same place as yesterday. Gohda claims that Genji has just called the four remaining adults. Krauss and Natsuhi arrive shortly after. Gohda calls the remaining two but there is no answer.

Genji then enters the room. Krauss had assumed Genji called them, but Genji claims there was no answer from their room.

Krauss orders Genji to check on them. Battler then decides to go with. A few minutes later the phone rings, Battler breaks the chain, and Krauss brings Rudolf with him to Eva's room.

I follow.

Genji is standing in the hallway. Myself, Krauss, Rudolf, and Battler all enter the room and find the dead bodies of Eva and Hideyoshi. Shortly after investigating I make the fatal assumption that the chain can't be set from the outside, but indeed that is how it was done. I explain my theory to Krauss and Rudolf, who nod. But Battler seems doubtful.

The external phones lines aren't working, according to Genji. Krauss, Natsuhi, Jessica, Rudolf, Kyrie, Battler, Ange, Maria, Rosa, Gohda, Genji, Ruon, Berune, and Manon are all in the dining room.

8:50 PM - Genji saw Battler, Jessica, Maria, and Ange while shoveling snow. They all entered the guesthouse.
9:00 PM - Genji saw Eva, Hideyoshi, Rudolf, and Kyrie while shoveling snow. They all entered the guesthouse.

...Where was Rosa? Battler claims that sometime during the night (they had stayed in GR#1, did he have a key?) Maria started crying (why?) so they took her to Rosa's room in the mansion. Why was Rosa staying in the mansion?

Also, when they were at the mansion Jessica asked her mother something. What was it? Natsuhi woke up at 11 but called for a drink at 2:30, when Krauss did. But Jessica should have been in the mansion from 11 to 12, according to Battler.

Kyrie then claims that Manon arrived with her drink between 2:10 to 2:30. Manon states that she did indeed serve Kyrie, and was on duty in the guesthouse.

Genji then states that at 9:35 he called Eva and Hideyoshi, but there was no response. They must have been dead by then.

Kyrie tells me that she saw Ruon as she was getting her drink in the guesthouse. Ruon had also entered the dining hall a few minutes after I, Krauss, and Rudolf had left the dining hall. Kyrie's description of the incident three years ago matches Hideyoshi's perfectly. She also says that Krauss probably covered it up. So it seems I'm on the right track.

Battler: "I see, so that's where this is going. When I walked to the mansion with Maria I saw Genji shoveling and when we passed through the main entrance I saw Ruon. Those are the only servants I saw that night."

It seems that Ruon is a likely suspect.

However, Battler confronts me with a red truth : because of the snow there is no way to get to the Guesthouse or Mansion without using the path Genji made! Since Genji and Manon met in such a place there was no chance for someone to sneak by. So, Battler and Ruon work together here to form an alibi for Ruon, who both Kyrie and I had seen in the guesthouse that night.

Kyrie breaks up our argument once I start pointing my finger at Battler, and he does the same to me. The group then goes to the kitchen for canned food. There are decorations left over in the parlor... no servant bothered to clean it up?

Natsuhi tells someone to move the flowers, Manon does, and reveals a letter underneath.

The letter essentially forces Krauss to reveal the existence of the documents he had supposedly burned away. It was addressed to the detective, so I assume this was Jessica once again.

It is then Rosa's idea to send both Battler and myself with Krauss as he gets the documents from the study. We all go up to the study and read them, they are the same format as the documents I got from Terence.

The first page is simply a title labled, "Rokkenjima Murder". On the second page however there are pictures of both George and a girl... Yasu. Wearing a maid outfit, no more than 20 years old. The body was found right next to George. So Ruon found the body dead, right next to George? Or perhaps Genji? After all, he's the one who broke into the room!

Although this gives me a very sinister theory... could it be that Ruon....? Well, let's keep reviewing the fragments.

A photo from two years ago reveals the corpse of Furudo Erika. She was shot in the back of the head, her corpse was also rotten, disfigured, and could only be identified because of her teeth.

Krauss then says that both bodies were originally found in the mansion's servant room, and he had them both moved to the underground military base. George knew how to solve the riddle, wrote down how, and that allowed the closed room to be constructed.

Yasu was taken to the hidden mansion by Genji, and buried there, and only Genji knows where. Battler looks angry after hearing this, and suggests that we head back.

Krauss then dies due to a leaky ceiling.

1:45 PM

I read some of the documents on the desk. They seem to about previous and current deals with other companies. According to the documents a few years ago when Kinzo was alive his sons and daughters needed money. Out of what looks to be sheer luck, with the 'little' amount of inheritance Kinzo left Krauss he was able to bring everyone out of debt.

Battler and I head back down. We find Rudolf banging on the door to the storage room, which is still locked. Genji gets out his key and unlocks it, where we find Natsuhi dead. Erika later gave me a red truth saying that the ashes found inside were actually burnt documents. So Natsuhi probably went to the storage room to burn them.

2:45 PM

Jessica and Battler get into an argument. They seem to be talking about Yasu and George, from what I can tell.

"Don't talk to me like that, you were egging him on in the first place!" Yells Jessica.
"Oh me is it? You were always having your 'secret 'talks with her weren't you?" Battler yells back.
"She didn't even do anything, there is no way! Battler you are just a little-"

Suddenly the lights go out. Genji informs us that there is a lantern in the servant room. We all go pick it up, but Battler carries it. Once we're in the room he sets it down. This must be the lantern Genji had when he was found dead.

Along the way to the boiler room Maria hears a noise. It's possible this was simply the boiler about ready to explode, as it makes another noise shortly before doing so.

Rudolf suggests that melted snow caused the circuit to fry. Is that really true?

The boiler then explodes, and I'm knocked unconscious.

I wake up to find Battler and Maria with me. The room has been split in two. Battler suggests we take the back door out.

We eventually make our way to the second floor, where we follow various drops of blood.

"As Battler lifts the candle towards the door it looks as if the blood was coming from the door itself. A large cut has been made in the door, surrounding the area blood has dripped down. Battler carefully puts his hand on the doorknob and gives it a twist, but does not open it. You take Maria's hand and enter the room where Genji's corpse lays."

Battler then leaves the room and presumably finds Kyrie dead, as he lets out a scream. There's also the sound of something falling, probably Battler falling to his knees and crying.

We then receive some red: Manon was seen in the guesthouse by Kyrie from 2:10 AM to 2:30 AM. Whether they are dead or alive, the one who wrote the letter that called you to Rokkenjima is among the people on the island.

This does not deny that Ruon was seen by Kyrie, of course.

I then find a small box, or maybe a big box, inside Genji's room. I cut off his head, proving he really is a corpse.

My candle then goes out after feeling a gust of wind, pain goes through my leg and I feel something in my chest. Maria screams and I hear footsteps rushing down the hallway. Who could have done this?

...I'm starting to suspect... Battler? Or perhaps even Maria did this? If Maria were born of a C-section, it would make sense. Rosa probably wouldn't want Maria and tried to abort her but it didn't work and she ended up living...

But I doubt Maria is actually the mastermind.

We then decide to go to the guesthouse, where we meet up with everyone else.

Jessica speaks up, "So in other words; while we were all unconscious, your group, Kyrie, Genji and the culprit were not." Battler's expression grows tense as his eyes squint. He puts his hand on his chin and looks down, probably in thought.

It seems Jessica and Battler aren't getting along. Either way, she then admits to me that she sent me the letter.

Red: Everyone alive on the island is gathered inside the guesthouse right now.

6:30 PM

Maria senses a smell. Rosa notices it smells like something burning. Gohda wants to check it out, but Berune opposes it. Rudolf (drunkenly) and the others agree to just stay where we all are.

Battler then gets a signal from the radio he had pulled out once we got here. Terence speaks, but we hardly hear him.

"*static*SIX!? Six people?*static* At this rate it could turn into-*static* Alright, Kinjo this is-*static**static**static* Only then can-*static* Got that? *static*
*static*-need you first to*static**static**static**static**static*"

Apparently I was supposed to do something before Terence could help. What was he trying to tell me?

I then open the box I found in Genji's room. It contains blueprints, a poem, and documents similar to what was found in the study. The poem seems to be a second epitaph. Perhaps Genji was planning on something Kinzo had wanted him to do? Give out another test because the first one didn't work out? Or did Krauss order Genji to do this?

There's also a hidden room in the blueprints of the mansion. No idea what that could be for.

Also, I find that my hammer has gone missing. Who would have taken it? Maria?

We all smell the fire again...

Yes, I remember this part well.

There's not much reason to go over this again in detail.

Gohda, Rosa, Ange, Maria, and Manon leave via the window in the lobby.

Jessica and Ruon leave via the main exit.

Rudolf, Battler, and I go upstairs.

Rudolf then dies in my guest room, and Battler confronts me there as well.

Naturally, given the red... if Rudolf died on the second floor, and the only people there when he died were the three of us...

...There's only one person I could suspect to be the killer at this point.

I think I have my final theory prepared.

Erika must be waiting for me to return. She's probably ready to fight me again, expecting to crush me without mercy, and torture me all over again.

But I've learned this time. There's only one howdunnit that needs to be solved, but now that I have a strong case for the whodunnit... this shouldn't be too bad after all.

I'm only uncertain about the whydunnit. Taking one last look at those who died, it would be George's parents, then Jessica's parents, then Battler's parents... with Genji there as well.

Is this the work of a single culprit? It's very possible. But I have no doubt that multiple motives are crossing paths here, and the result is something that makes no sense when first looked at.

The final hint that anon gave me. It makes more sense now, but am I really thinking of the correct interpretation? Well, no matter.

This is the best I can do before I reclaim this gameboard. I'm ready.

Crack... Snap...

The sound of bones breaking... you can hear it all around you. Slowly, one at a time, you can feel it. First your arms, then legs, get slowly jammed back together.
Red hot blood floor The skin binding the limbs sears as they fuse. However it doesn't hurt.

No... That is wrong: you won't allow it to hurt. There is no more time to feel pain, there is only one option ahead of you.

Erika is smirking from across the room you have now returned to. The red stains of your body is no more, and you have completely healed.
"You know," Erika says, "after the first time, a revival like this gets old. I was almost expecting a golden sword with it as well.
Well, it is not like it matters, I see you brought the last piece, and all you have are feeble theories to protect it!"

Erika rushes at you, her scythe emerging from thin air.

"Let us finish this!"

"That's right, Erika, I'm back! But this time I've developed a solid theory as a base! So here it comes!!!"

Seventh theory. Battler killed Rudolf. He stabbed him on the second floor while I was distracted. Rudolf stumbled over to the guest room, lied down, and the final blow came from the burning building itself! Battler culprit theory!!!

Returning to my sixth theory. The culprit tampered with the thermostat in my room earlier. This is what caused the fire. Then as Rudolf entered the room through the hole in the wall, a trap activated, causing the mechanical noise that I heard. The thud was Rudolf's body falling. There was no need for the culprit to even be in the guesthouse, if they were at all! And the evidence for this trap? The bed itself! The weapon was thrust into Rudolf from inside the bed! The culprit had probably set it up as a trap to kill me as I slept, but it hit Rudolf instead! The blood splatter dripping from the wall and circumference of the bed could only be created from an object thrust into Rudolf from below!

When I was trying to sleep, I had to find a comfortable spot! Why would the rest of the bed be uncomfortable? Furthermore, I doubt everything was planned in advance for my arrival! This guest room must have been intended for someone else, perhaps Rosa! It's likely that the culprit set a trap in my bed for the person who was supposed to sleep there before I arrived! Hence why it was so hard to sleep that night! And the trap is heat-sensitive, so on a cold night like the one I was sleeping on, it didn't work, but during the fire it did! It's all in the thermostat!

The mechanical noise made the crunching sound. The only other thing in this entire story to make a crunching sound was whatever Manon was messing with in the mansion's servant room. Later on she probably went to the guesthouse's servant room, bringing whatever it was that made that sound with her. Whether or not it was the phone or the iron I'm not sure, but that's probably what started the fire in the first place too!

These rules are too lenient.

Correct. There was a trap set up to kill Kinjo using the ironing board inside of the wall. Because of the cold it was frozen and it didn't work, thus only waking him up.
Only when the fire lit, it was then set off by the melting of the ice. Rudolf happened to be in the way at that time.

The core of this mystery lies in the events of 1986, events I wasn't around for! So let's start with those!

George was egged on by Battler to propose to Yasu. He got carried away, scared Yasu, and she killed him! She wanted to be with Battler, not George! After all, Jessica said Battler would be much better than him! But Battler liked Ruon instead. That's right, Battler wasn't upset because he loved Yasu, but because he liked Ruon. Yasu then killed Ruon and switched places with her, to be with Battler! So Ruon is Yasu! And when Battler saw that Yasu had died, he felt enormous guilt for not being nicer to her!

Ruon/Yasu then told what had happened to Kinzo. He decided it would be best if he went to the hidden mansion, pretending to have died. After all, he hated everyone but George, who died. Genji then faked Kinzo's death. Ruon/Yasu then became Kinzo's only means of contact between the two mansions. This was hinted at because it was said that Genji "buried" Yasu in the hidden mansion!

However the family conferences never happened again, and Ruon eventually came to dislike Battler. Originally she was sent out to bring Battler to the island, but she wanted to try and leave without him, using my arrival as an excuse! Of course, I foiled her plans without even realizing it.

When I arrived and saw the portrait of Kinzo, two things stuck out to me. First, the eyes seemed to follow me, and second, it would strike nightmares in the hearts of children! Obviously Kinzo was hiding inside the portrait, and obviously this is what caused me to have that dream when I went to sleep that night!

The six victims all have something in common: They are Kinzo's children and spouses! The exception is Genji, Kinzo's best servant. However, he probably wouldn't mind dying for his master either way. Genji was also apparently working on a new epitaph, so this hints that it was Kinzo's idea to have another epitaph to solve to become the head!

However, Rudolf's death is odd. The trap was not intended for him, but for me... Or maybe someone else? Who would have stayed in my room that night? Rosa? The last of Kinzo's children who wasn't killed, but was meant to be killed!

I did suspect Battler for a while, but there is a problem. He has an alibi for both Krauss's and Natsuhi's deaths. In fact, everyone does! Genji and Rudolf couldn't have killed Natsuhi because they both died themselves! Anyone else would have been seen leaving the parlor, and of course seen re-entering the parlor! This means that the only one who could have killed Natsuhi was someone outside the parlor: Kinzo!

I also wanted to say George may not have died, but his head was cut off by you, Erika! Proving that he really did die!

In any case, Kinzo is the culprit! He planted the trap in my room to kill Rosa, he went into Eva's room at night to kill her and her husband... And, thinking about it, must have given Manon the letter to get Krauss and Natsuhi to leave the parlor. He then killed Kyrie and Genji, but was unable to kill any more, as we had all holed up in the guesthouse! So he set the fire and went in hiding once again!

In short, his motive was to purge the family of that generation of Ushiromiyas. Eva and Hideyoshi wanted to bring the case to light, Krauss and Natsuhi had embezzled his money, Rudolf and Kyrie had raised an idiot, and Rosa had no husband to take care of her C-sectioned child! Genji could have been killed for a number of reasons, perhaps he was defecting, or maybe he was just killed to throw people off? And the main accomplice, Ruon, was working with Kinzo so that she could be with Battler, who seemed to have learned from his ways and isn't really that bad of a person after all!

Erika vanishes and you feel a tear at your chest. Blood splatters, flying through the air and landing all over the floor. You feel your bowls slide out of your body and splash to the ground. Erika is standing there, right in front of you grinning ear to ear.

George was never egged on to propose to Yasu.
Battler doesn't like Ruon in that way.
Ruon truly mistook you for Battler at the docks.

So do you plan on revealing the solution? I'm totally stumped on how anyone could have killed Krauss and Natsuhi...I'm thinking that there must be some unknown person on the island who was killed somehow before everyone gathered at the guesthouse, but I can't find clues for it in the text anywhere...

I have to agree with RIKA-Beatrice there, even with all the howdunnits solved, I can't make a fitting theory for the who and whydunnits.
This truly was a great gameboard.

It's a shame Kinjo forgot to check some of the primordials red though, to have come up with this silly theory.
Well, who am I to say that even though I don't even have a theory ?

Thank you, and yes I will reveal the answer.

With the way the game ended, I've decided it will be best to reveal the answer in a different fashion. To elaborate; early near the start of this game's progression, Kinjo informed me he would convert this into a visual novel fan-game once it was done(i.e. like his "When the Seacats Cry").

It seems the most fitting this way because I can have the game end how I intended(if Kinjo had beat Erika and went back to the gameboard etc). This should be a good way to reveal the answer along with some epic grand finales.
After all, we already have all the images, music, and script needed to convert it.

So, if anyone is dying to know the answer you'll have to wait until then.

After telling me the answer it really is a well-crafted gameboard. I wish I had done better before the Meta-World section but I guess I'm just not cut out for being a detective.
