Original Thread: A Detective Noir Game with Annoying Neighbors (Last Window: The Secret of Cape West)



What is this game?

Last Window: The Secret of Cape West.

What's it about?

It's a mystery VN created by Cing for the DS. I can't tell you much except that it's a sequel to Hotel Dusk: Room 215.

Wait, what? How come I never heard of this?

That's because Cing went bankrupt before this game made it in America.

So you're going to play this with a translation patch?

Thankfully, no. Cing actually managed to localize and release this game in Europe, complete with English language. However, since the game is localized for Europe but takes place in America it might (I don't actually remember) use both American English and British English. I won't point out whenever this happens, just something to keep in mind when reading.

Do I need to play Hotel Dusk: Room 215 before reading this LP?

Not really. The plot in this game is pretty much independent from the last game, unlike games like VLR where you'll be lost if you skip 999. You can count the returning characters from Hotel Dusk on one hand. I do recommend you to read it, though, since it's great in its own right.

That said, I'm not going to use spoiler tags for that game. THIS LP WILL SPOIL HOTEL DUSK: ROOM 215. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Are you going to do the playthrough twice with NG+ as the main one and collecting the Game Overs in NG as the alternate one?

There's no NG+ this time, but I'm still going to be playing this twice. I'm going to try and get all the Game Overs in the main timeline and getting what I missed in the alternate timeline. I don't know how to get all the Game Overs here, so if I missed something feel free to point it out in the thread with spoiler tags.

So what's the rule on spoilers this time?

Open spoilers for Hotel Dusk, tagged spoilers for what I missed in this game. Please don't post twists in this game, even in spoiler tags.
