Extra 3: Storm Sente: Asinine Attorney: Play


This game uses music from DGS1. Any DGS2-exclusive music can be disabled at the start of each case that uses it.

Premise
Argus Hakan gets roped into defending a delivery boy on the charges of hacking. From there he goes down an unexpectedly large rabbit hole as he gets involved in many crimes targeting the beloved mayor of his town. All he can do is solve the crimes as they come and hope to put an end to whoever's commanding these ne'er-do-wells behind the scenes.

This game will have five cases in the main story, one extra case and two ambiguously-canon mini-cases.
1. The Hacked Turnabout
2. Turnabout on the Road
3. Turnabout in Flames
4. The Domestic Turnabout
5. Turnabout Cremation
6. Turnabout Apprentice
7. Argus Hakan: Asinine Attorney
8. Storm Sente: Asinine Attorney

Chapters:
Spoiler : Case Synopsis :
Case 1: The Hacked Turnabout: Argus goes to court with his mentor, Karen Foster, to watch her defend. When he makes a big mistake, though, he must take over the defense to protect Karen's good name. He may not be an attorney yet, but can he find the truth behind this disastrous case of hacking?

Case 2: Turnabout on the Road: The mayor gets sued for causing an accident on his way to work. Despite the odds being stacked against him, Argus offers to represent him in court.

Case 3: Turnabout in Flames: Argus is invited to the mayor's house for dinner to celebrate his recent victories, but that soon comes to an end when the house gets burned down! When the head servant is accused of starting the fire, Argus must stand in court once again.

Case 4: The Domestic Turnabout: Argus finally catches a break and gets to spend time with his friends. This is a slower, more easy-going case - despite that, I hope the solution doesn't disappoint.

Case 5: Turnabout Cremation: Someone has been killed and now Argus must find the truth more than ever.

Special Case: Turnabout Apprentice: Set several years before Hexepta: Mayor Attack, Storm Sente must solve a murder in his home country. Originally written separately to this game, this case is canon and provides context to some characters' actions later in the game. Playing is recommended and can be done at any time. See the case's thread for more details.

Argus Hakan: Asinine Attorney: Set several months after the final case, Argus is enjoying some much-needed time off from lawyer work, when a sudden catastrophe pulls him back into the courts for a most unusual case.

Storm Sente: Asinine Attorney: A long-forgotten case that takes place just after case 3. Argus and Storm are about to go out celebrating their victory before Argus is suddenly dragged into court again. Storm takes up the defense as he faces off against a couple of familiar faces.

Things like this series are why I love the AA community. Then I remember I'm a part of it, and I'm a piece of crap, then my opinion goes back down after I finish.

tl;dr: best case, 10/10 logical hacks cant wait for the final case

I suppose now would be the time to say the writing of case 3 has begun, just focusing on the first couple of scenes for now but I suppose I can reveal the new characters who appear!

Spoiler : Case 3 Cast :
Butler
Image
Age: 54
The butler who has been serving the Timm family since he was young. He shows much dedication to us job.

Warren Gesst
Image
Age: 65
An old man who was invited to the Mayor's estate, like Argus. He's a war veteran.

Honor Gesst
Image
Age: 49
Another guest invited by the Mayor.

Cooke Err
Image
Age: 18
The Mayor's cook. She's accused of starting the fire, but the Mayor has his doubts.


Also added screenshots for the first two cases since the CR thread has some.

Spoiler : Case 2 Screenshots :

Case 3 screenshots will come when there's more done.

So yeah I almost forgot about this thread but I'll give it the same update I gave the CR one. So progress on case 3 has been very slow so far but I have made some progress now, and now I can say there is one last character to reveal for case 3. He is a very important character who I originally planned to introduce in a later case, but further planning doesn't quite demand but strongly recommends I introduce him now, early in case 3, rather than later.

He is...

Spoiler : Character Reveal :
Image
Image
Image
Image

The Adrenaline Man, Storm Sente, who is using vacation time to visit his best friend in the US, Argus!
Also yea those are PyWright screenshots I'll have AAO ones when I get that version to that part.


I hope this makes up for my deafening silence the past couple of weeks! I can assure you this will be complete, especially now that I have a clearer idea of what the solution for this case will be!

Hello, it has been a few weeks since the last update to this, but progress on case 3 has been relatively fast the last couple of days. The case has been fully planned out, the introductory chapter is done and I'm now working on the investigation. So far I'm about 2000 frames in (yeah this is unexpectedly long so far.) If you are curious as to how the case is progressing, I have added a section near the top of the first post showing percentages and stuff, as well as the AAO frame count. I'll keep that updated as much as possible!

Spoiler : Current Progress on Case 3 :
Planning: 100%
Investigation Scripting: 60-70%
Trial Scripting: 0%
AAO frame count: 2095
PyWright progress: 5%
Assets: 95%
Fixed Assets: 40% depreciation on buildings, trees and furniture


The development of this case is also a bit different from that of the previous two, as I'm writing the case in AAO, and have barely touched the PyWright version. Of course, the PyWright one will be finished and released alongside the AAO one, though I may consider releasing the investigation early, then do the trial separately -- this is pretty long, as I said.

My estimate for the final frame count used to be about 2500-3000 but now it's looking to be at least 4000, maybe 4500. I should reconsider the pacing of the case, tbh.

Anyway now for the best part. The screenshots. Here are four moments taken from the early scenes of Turnabout in Flames!

This case continues the evening after the second one. Argus Hakan is invited to the mayor's house for a dinner party when, out of nowhere, the house catches fire. Now Argus, with help from Storm Sente and Vick Timm, must defend the cook, Cooke Err, from the grave charges of arson. Can he see through the villain's devious scheme and bring the truth to light?

I remember when this case was about nailing crates with hammers on ropes and switching roads with bulldozers. Why did it turn so interesting in Case 3 Arrowlawn

Spoiler : :
This case is definitely a more serious one after the jaywalking silliness of case 2. Felt I should take that tone for all those parts that build up The Plot, since this is a very serious Plot that should take itself very seriously (like Hexepta's probably.). It probably carried over to the other parts though, rip. FWIW the solution used to be a lot weirder but it was also bad so I threw away like 2 or 3 plot twists, I'll write up what the case used to be like (Both "Trespassing The Turnabout," and "Early-Flames") at some point probably just because.
Next case will go back to silliness before the two finale cases, even if it's very different to the other cases. But we'll see what that case is like when we get there.

Also, PyWright Case 3 update: Investigation Part One complete.

I might also write up roughly what the original version of The Hacked Turnabout used to be when I first wrote it, before I discarded it and started it from again from the start. Cause wowowowow that thing was garbage.

Surprise, there's a new release already, don't get your hopes too high though 'cause it's not case 4. Actually, it's a case set in the few hours in between cases 3 and 4. To the few of you here, I present to you a very short trial:

Storm Sente: Asinine Attorney

(I'll release the PyWright version when Case 4's released, which is still a thing I'm just trying to work some stuff
Also there will probably be an Argus Asinine too but I haven't worked out all the details for that and it's also set after case 6 so.)

No new case yet but I gave the first case a bit of an update to clarify a certain part of the crime. Now the case hopefully makes more sense.

Planning of case 5 is around 40% or something like that.
