ABOUT THE GAME: 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. Although most visual novels include branching paths and choices that affect the outcome of the story, Detective Butler: Maiden Voyage Murder has just one outcome. The only choice is how you choose to solve the mystery. STORY: 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? And will you be able to solve the mystery before the solution is revealed?

Goldbar Games is pleased to announce that Detective Butler: Maiden Voyage Murder, our first visual novel, is now on Steam Greenlight! With only a limited time remaining before Steam Direct takes off, we're going to need your help to get our game on Steam. Originally made in 2013, we've listened to player feedback and improved various parts of the writing for our 2017 campaign, including an entirely new ending and epilogue. The story follows Detective Butler and his sidekick Gilligan as they solve an 'impossible' murder while on a haunted cruise ship. The updated game is already available for free and can be downloaded here.

There aren't too many detective games on Steam, so if you'd like to see more then please give us a vote! And if you have any questions, feel free to ask! Thank you!
