Finally, Legal

My game is about a young man named Josh whose birthday is today! He has finally turned 21 and his best friend Daniel is hosting a big event on his behalf. Josh and Daniel live in Miami and they are the hottest DJ in town, so everyone is coming out to have some fun. This is a birthday Josh will never forget. He relives the same day repeatedly on his birthday and tries to figure out who is attempting to kill him at his very own party every time and why. He is killed at the end of each day by a masked killer with one eye. Immediately upon dying he wakes up again in the morning with full memory of what he had experienced. He decides to catch hold of the killer’s identity by noting down the experience that he has every day.
