Beppu City, Oita.
In this scenic land, a major art exhibit called “Techmix” will soon be held, which fuses the traditional bamboo craft of Beppu with the latest digital art.
The combined forces that are the head of the distinguished Anan family, which produces a large number of artists, and “Artenuv,” a group that creates art using leading-edge technology, are expected to draw a large crowd to the novel exhibit.
However, the high profiles of its representatives are also a subject of envy and animosity, as is the exhibit to slander and threats from those who see problem with it.
The protagonist (the player) and junior detective Ken, perhaps in recognition of their routine success and investigative abilities, are hired for the specific intent of increasing security for the exhibit, and hurriedly make their way to Oita.
Empathizing with the people of Oita participating in the exhibit and praying for its success, the protagonist and Ken strive to protect it as a security team.
However, an incident occurs in a place they would have never expected…
