Play OverviewPlay Overview

No Case Should Remain Unsolved (2024) is a narrative sequencing game where you try to solve the mystery of a disappearance, but discover your own memories are fading. The challenge is to reconstruct your interviews and solve the case, while only being able to recall the questions you asked but not who you asked and in what order you asked them. It stands out for integrating regret and fading memory in a way that turns the rearrangement puzzle into something personal and moving.

You play retired detective Jeon Gyeong, who never managed to solve the disappearance of a young girl named Seowon. Urged to reconsider the case, you must recall the interviews you conducted, now faded with time, to reconstruct a mental image of what happened and solve the case. At the same time, you revisit your own feelings of doubt and regret in the face of past failures.

Play involves working through the interviews you conducted with key people after the disappearance, asking questions to fill in the gaps. To do this, you need to correctly assign each of the textual answers to one of the individuals and place it in a timeline. Keywords and phrases in the questions and answers offer clues to help you recall new parts of the conversations. In this way, you flesh out the conversations to reconstruct who said what and when. Eventually, you select a conclusion that leads to one of two endings based on what you do.

The result is a game that plays with the idea of fading memories to cast doubt on every decision you make. Just like real memories, that lack of certainty and the breakthrough that can come from seemingly innocuous details make for a highly engaging and affecting experience.
