About This Game

Scandal! Outrage! Hollywood under siege!

The motion picture industry is infested with communists, or so the authorities would have you believe. In actuality, the studio bosses seem far more concerned about the rising threat of that curious gizmo they call television.

In light of all of this confusion and uncertainty, movie producers find themselves more desperate than ever to discover the next big star of the silver screen. If you have just a little talent and a lot of ambition - well then, you might fit the bill!

Some might say it's a dangerous time to try and make a name for yourself in this business. Nonsense! What's the worst that could happen?

Welcome to Hollywood

Coming in 2020 from Pilgrim Adventures, The Deadly Facade is a genre-bending visual novel with an immersive historical setting inspired by 1950s Hollywood.

As a young actor appearing in your very first starring role, the last thing you expected was to get all caught up in an unsettling murder mystery. Now it looks like someone has to play detective - for real, this time.
