A short murder mystery visual novel about a detective, a yoga course attendant, a grieving wife, an obsessed cleaner, a “bro”, and a bitchy friend. To Kill A Black Swan is not your average whodunit, nothing is as it seems to be, it is all about superficiality (and beneath the surface it has an important message to tell.) TKABS was created for the 2014 Indie Game Development Contest and is available for free. The title is inspired by To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, but it is an original story.

A young girl named Michelle "Mike" Vinson--the awesome me--opened the box, and the world changes in an instant. The only way for me is to trust an amnesiac young man named Gerald, who seems to have an unstable personality because he changes it often its confusing. Long story short, I have to seal all the seven demons back in the box to regain my normal life, and reset everything that has been caused by the demon's actions.

For Milicent, turning her back from her dream isn't an easy job. She had left everything as she leaves the military: her life, her dreams, her joy, and her only hope on actually "living". Even those emotions and memories she knew she had forgotten long ago... she knew she'd be leaving them behind. But then, another thing she thought she left behind had actually remained with her all the time. And it was a "split personality" that is inside her. Of course, she has nothing to do with her. She actually treats her more like a burden than what this personality claim as a "sister". As she tries desperately to get rid of her, she opens up a past she has hidden long ago, and remembers all the bitter memories she tried to forget.

Once, when the chance showed up, Sirius risked everything to get once into the records room to get one piece of data she wanted, which is the identity of her parents. This ruined her life, as she was caught due to "stealing" of information and dealing physical injuries. She regretted everything she did in that day. But one year after her stay in prison, she had to be transferred to a different section of the prison area. In there, she met Cetus, a "woman" who got her gender removed, and Daena Blackstar, a young appointed general who started guarding their cells as part of her training on "discipline". Little did she know they will be part on the next turn of events that will change her life... As time passes by, her life gets worse as memories of long ago started coming to her, as if a lone spirit awaking from a long sleep. With the medium of dreams she was able to look at other people's hearts at the past... and on her own, which brought on the realization of what is behind her own mysterious past. The stories makes the past more tangling, more confusing... It triggers one event that will break each others' trust to everyone.

Redwood is one of the most prestigious schools in the nation-- once, it served as a private school for the rich and famous, hidden deep away in the forest, away from public eye-- but was soon opened to all enrolling students (if they could pay the tuition fees.) The new school year is beginning, and Redwood's Headmaster states that he's got an announcement to make. During this announcement, one of the empty classrooms is set on fire-- with five students trapped inside. The story follows a few characters' attempts to solve the mystery of the classroom fire, as well as the other mysteries that spring up along the way. This is the first chapter of four planned before the story is complete. Rise and Fall contains graphic images and scenes (murder scenes, body discoveries, etc.) as well as strong language/profanity.
