999 and Critical Thinking
The story is simple at the onset, being of nine individuals that must complete grueling puzzles in a race to find an escape route from a cruise ship that's been rigged to sink in nine hours. However, as the game progresses this Saw-like concept gets increasingly intricate. There's multiple endings, so there's plenty of replay value, but more importantly there's character development.
The art style is perfect for the game. Not extremely complex at first glance, but distinct enough that none of the characters looks too homogenous. I'm actually quite impressed with the variety of the cast. There's punks and conservatives, androgynous and manly, young and middle-aged. A nice swatch of different cultures. It may be a more typically moe anime style, but the artwork is not uninteresting for it.
Let's meet at the next save point!
P.S. I may E.T.A. some stuff later on.
