Something to file under “things that may be of interest”, out on Steam and PS4/Vita today is Zero Escape: The Nonary Games, a remastered collection of 999 and Virtue’s Last Reward previously released on Nintendo DS.
I have played neither of the games previously, but I’m totally on board with the theme – nine people trapped in an unusual situation and having to solve puzzles and team-up/betray each other in order to survive a deadly game. They sound like The Genius meets Saw, basically, but done as an interactive visual novel. A jumped-up Choose Your Own Adventure by the looks of things.
£55 on the PS Store feels a bit steep really but I think it will be my next purchase after I’ve finished Zelda anyway. Did you play them when they first came out? I’m aware there’s a third in the series also on 3DS released quite recently.
Edit edit: Some stuff about the Red Bull Mindgamers thing in the comments.
