An experiment in letter writing, meant to evoke the distinctly sweet homoerotisicm of Victorian and Edwardian literature. Follow the correspondence of two professors, in the months before one of them makes a decision he'll never be able to take back.


  • A visual novel with a cute mechanic: Slide the letters back and forth across the screen, to experience the time the letter is written, and when it is read!
  • About 10,000 words in length,
  • Two scientists, one of them arguably quite mad!
  • If you enjoyed this game, you can continue Harry and Hawley’s story in: The Case of the Serialized Killer!


Note- Ren'Py's web port is currently a work in progress. As of Jan 2, 2022, the web version of this game works best on a desktop running Firefox.

Hahaha, I laughed a lot while working on that ending; I’m very pleased to hear that the emotion communicated.

Any plan to add Simplified-Chinese language? If so, we can offer free translation.

That would be wonderful! We have a channel in our discord for discussing translations if you’re interested: https://discord.gg/7hDQx9Qe

not working

Hey there! Ren'Py's web port is currently a work in progress. As of Jan 2, 2022, the web version of this game works best on a desktop running Firefox.

If you'd like to report a bug with a downloaded version, could you let me know which one you've downloaded, and what happens when you try to run it? Thanks!

This comment is everything, thank you so much, these two are the most beloved of my OCs so to hear that means so much ToT

Oh my god. Oh my god, this was delightful!
I am simply astonished at how you strung together words in such a manner that made my heart skip a beat. How you made me feel fear, irritation, and joy in a mere 10,000 words I will never know (not to say 10,000 words isn't a feat in itself! It usually takes more than that to make me as ecstatic as I am writing this is all). 
The ending is what got me, however. It made me shriek with laughter (and no, I am not exaggerating. It woke up those I live with). 
Oh, and the drawings? Your art style positively blessed my eyes. Thank you for this game. Seriously, I enjoyed it immensely.

I am to now play your other work, and I will leave my thoughts (and, more than likely, my praise) under that as well.

Thank you so much! The ending had me cracking over and over the more I worked on it; the rough draft had more written there but I decided to lean more heavily on the visual elements to land the moment home. XD 

I hope you enjoy Serialized Killer! I love writing for Hawley and Harry, and I hope to do lots more with them in the future!

The Finale is here

i keep getting a script error

Sorry to hear that! Could you give me additional information?

it just.. Doesn't start, I've had this issue with other ren'py games in browser so I might just have to drop my pride and use Firefox,

Yeah, Ren'Py's web port is currently a work in progress. As of right now, the web version of this game works best on a desktop running Firefox!

Made a video

Oooooh! Lovely to see one from you guys, I’ll give it a watch as soon as I’ve come down from the rush from the latest episode of Lupin Zero XD

Hope you'll enjoy the video and we have a 2nd video coming out later to finish the game off because 10K words takes a long time to read.

We're going to watch new Lupin zero later today.

This was really nice, I loved the complexity of the dialogue. 10/10

This was the prequel I never knew I needed. Thank you!

Thank you! I can’t say how much I was smiling and laughing while adding expressions to this; my inner Maggie was really showing. XD

I love these two so much ih my god. 

Thank you! They are always like, hanging out three feet away from my train of thought.

What a fantastic prequel to The Case of the Serialized Killer!

Awww, thank you so much! I'm still dreaming and scheming a new murder for a game that follows Serialized Killer, but in the meantime, I thought it would be fun to get their letters out there. I love the campy sweetness of old letters. <3
