Visual novels are story-based games, displaying characters on the screen while playing sounds and music in the background to create an immersive storytelling experience. Most visual novels include branching paths and choices that affect the outcome of the story, although Detective Butler has just one outcome. The only choice is how you choose to solve the mystery.

In 1962, a popular cruise ship goes out of business after the accidental deaths of two of its passengers. The ship remains a tourist attraction, until it sets sail again half a century later.

The CEO of a wealthy company takes his closest employees and son Gilligan on board for the maiden voyage. Gilligan happens to meet Detective Butler during the cruise, and as the two of them delve deeper into the ship's history, another incident occurs… Will Detective Butler find the culprit before it's too late?

After playing, be sure to check out the Choices DLC!

It was amazing

It was so good, but soooo short!! now I kinda want to know more about Butler's adventures, guess I'll just dream on...

I want to play this game, but unfortunately it shows nothing but a white screen, the sound is perfectly fine though, trying to find some solutions online but nothing helps... :(

hello~ i'm interested on playing this game. however, on the zip folder it didn't seem any apk file... so how i can play this on android? thank you very much ^ ^

After looking into things, it seems the Android version isn't working properly at the moment. In the past the game could be read with the ONScripter Plus Android App, but since we increased the screen resolution the game no longer fits the phone screen. We'll remove the tag until it is fixed. In the meantime, you can still play on other platforms. Sorry for the confusion, and thank you for bringing this to our attention.
