Gyokugen Dasshutsu Adv: Zennin Shiboudes  



Zennin Shiboudes trailer confirms it as a 999 sequel


10:00 AM on 08.25.2011



In yesterday's reveal of Zennin Shiboudes, the new escape-the-room visual novel from Chunsoft, Dtoider OriginalGman mentioned that he thought the game resembled 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors a little too closely. The Vita / 3DS multiplat was tagged as a spiritual successor to 999, but I have to agree that there were quite a few direct similarities.

Now that the trailer above has been released, it's pretty clear that there is nothing "spiritual" about Zennin Shiboudes -- it is most definitely a sequel! There's a person dressed up as Zero, doors painted with single-digital numerals, and even those infernal watches! Whether this all means that the game is a direct continuation of events from 999, albeit with a new cast of "players," or a completely independent tale set in the same universe that uses the Nonary Game as a template is still up in the air.

One lingering question remains: what the f*ck is up with that freaky-looking rabbit!?

Review: The Deer God

In a lot of ways, The Deer God is a love letter to nature. The idea was born from the developers' childhood memories of playing in the woods and seeing wild deer, and that admiration of the outdoors is quite apparent. The for...more
