You wake up in the world, what is being called world between life and death. It is up to the people themselves to fight for survival. But this world isn't empty, it is magical world and it is owned by someone who is being called death. Apparently he isn't god of this world and can only manipulate everything. So you escape from him but at the same time you go through your dark past, so you would understand, why and how did he end up there.
It needs a lot of work, as there seem to be many bugs, such as dresser drawers through walls, programmed events not executing correctly, wall and floor anomalies, etc. The autosaving is a bonus, though. Necessary, I might add. The voice acting is...Terrible. Well, the male voice actor, anyway. The female actor was livable.
The biggest problem I had was the plot. It makes it seem like you're trying to avoid death, or consequently, you ACTUALLY die... However, there were two instances where you are forced to die in order to progress. :\
I would highly recommend throwing a 'bad end' upon death, if feasible, and taking out the forced deaths, if the plot is sticking with the whole 'you die, you DIE' motif. Additionally, you may want to 'clean' your map of bugs, etc. Should this happen, I could probably grit my teeth at the voiced dialogue in the next chapter and play it, if it is released.
I look forward to the improvements, should they happen.

Pretty good, not the best one out there but it has a certain charm to it. Certainly some nice variability with puzzles (not the same old key/door puzzles over and over). Overall, the main flaw in my opinion is that it isn't presented as serious as it maybe should have been (death continuing to say "Epic" and "Awesome" or when he says "by the way" it is shown in the subtitles as "btw"). Also (when you play as the detective) you're missing some welders on the stairs and the detective doesn't have…
