Simplified story branches and an improved skipping function make reaching the true ending easier, while the menu now offers a clearer understanding of which routes have been completed.

4. Technical improvements

Follow in the footsteps of Aya Fumino, a school penfriend allegedly involved in a tragic murder 15 years ago. Explore the prefecture of Shimane, uncover clues, and use the letters you wrote to each other to track down her childhood friends for questioning. But perhaps these friends, now adults living a peaceful life, will not be eager to let their painful memories resurface…
