None, first case My Head's Underwater

New Kid in Town is the first case in the province of Rocksfellow, created by Tuxedo!. As a result, it is also the first case in the first district, Bumberborough Bay.


Upon the player’s entrance to the coastal city of Bumberborough Bay in Rocksfellow, he was greeted by Chief Connie Tolentino and Jackson Walters, who wanted to show them around town. This was cut short when they found the body of a teenage boy under the mighty Standing Tree. He was identified as Christian Johnson, a teenager. Jackson and the chief told the player to search the crime scene for clues, while they shipped the body to the laboratory and left. After the player examined the scene and retrieved a bloody knife, Jackson came back and told the player to meet him back at the station.

At the station, Jackson informed the player about the facilities there, specifically the interrogation room and the laboratory. At the laboratory, Ferdinand Amado, the coroner, gave his results, telling the player that the victim was right-handed. Jackson also informed the player that he gathered some clues at the nearby dock. Madelyn Henley, the lab expert, came in and told the player about the bloody knife they found, stating that it was the murder weapon and it proved that the killer’s blood type was A+. Resident tech expert Gabriella Harrison, meanwhile, examined the victim’s phone, which contained a blurry picture of Christian’s killer. She was able to deduce the killer's height.

To break the case however, they needed an ultimate clue. Jackson told the player to investigate the dock once more. Jackson was surprised when the player grabbed an empty notepad as a clue. After revealing the handwriting, and with the psychological expertise of Alden Holmes, it was discovered that the killer was male.

The chief was glad to tell the player that she detained the two likeliest perpetrators of the crime. The player used the evidence to arrest Avery Johnson for the murder of his own son. Jackson told Avery that he would explain it to the court. Jackson and the chief congratulated the player, telling them that they just solved their first case.

After the arrest, Jackson revealed that he wanted to visit Kiki Wanda again. Jackson asked her about life in Bumberborough Bay, and Kiki revealed that a lot of things have happened since the police last visited. Rumors have been going around town that the death of Christian Johnson was perpetrated by an unknown secret group. After another inspection of the scene of the crime, the player found a newspaper clipping, telling a story of Christian being a witness to an arson case, but it seemed that Christian took what he saw to the grave. Even when the duo interrogated Kiki and Avery himself, they still could not discover what Christian witnessed.

The case name was pretty average. It does show that this case is obviously the first and also an introduction. The plot isn't good. The details were nice, but there were a lot of grammatical errors, including but not only: redundancy, wrong commas, and spelling. There were also a few vague details, like: who is Madelyn? At first glance, I thought Madelyn was a suspect until I looked at the suspects list. Also, who is Gabriella? I can tell the case resembles The Death of Rosa Wolf, but since you're new to this, I'd advise you to go for the original. Creativity is good. Different sentence structures, use of header pictures. Maybe you finished the red links, I could get a better read. I can tell you've put a lot of effort into it. You tried your best and I respect that wholeheartedly. The Verdict: The case overall is like any other case. It's neither good nor bad, but just at the center. A great start for a new user. Keep it up!

The case name was decent, neither good, nor bad. I guess I can see how you could think of the title, but I wouldn't necessarily say it's the most fitting name. However, it is better than some introduction-related cases I've seen. The plot is OK, and I like all the details added to it. There were some grammatical errors in the case, deducting a point or two. Similarly to Koishi, I did see heavy resemblance to the first case in the game. I do somewhat wish that with six cases in Bumberborough Bay, you could have done more in the steps. Speaking of steps, something that annoyed me is the way the steps seemed incomplete (such as the part regarding the victim's autopsy in the middle of nowhere). I can sense that you put a lot of effort in your case, but adding dialogues would greatly supplement it. I also do like that you easily added the infobox. Creativity is good. Compared to some of the introductory cases on this Wikia, this is pretty nice. It's neither a good case, nor a bad case. I think it works just fine for a first case! I'm excited as to where the RPD is heading next!

I have to say that the case's name is blunt, but still, it's fine for a starter. The plot is nice, but it seems that you've inserted some heavy elaboration into it, hence the effort. I'm not really good at English, but according to these two experts above, you've made some grammar mistakes, deducing some key points. And I agree that this case has many similarities with the first case in the original game. The creativity's score could've been better if it's not really similar with the original starter, contrary to your unique style of writing. Some parts are incomplete, while some are heavily detailed. I believe you've put much effort into this, and I, ehem, respected that. The case is fine, bro, neither good nor bad. Hope to see more from ya'!
