999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors Screenshots



Torrance, CA (July 1, 2010) - Aksys Games, a publisher of interactive entertainment products, announces the horror visual novel, Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, for the Nintendo DS®.

Junpei, a fairly normal college student finds himself involved in a deadly conspiracy that he couldn't have possibly imagined.

He awakes aboard an old passenger ferry, dazed and confused he stumbles around the room trying to reclaim his memories. First thing he noticed was a number roughly drawn on the cabin's door… A bright red number 5.

Junpei's memory then returned and he remembered what happened right before becoming unconscious! A mysterious person with a gas mask crossed his mind.He remembered the haunting words he spoke, “I'm gonna make you play the game… the 'Nonary Game' … the game of life or death”.

“We've decided to call 999 an 'Adventure' game,” say Ben Bateman, Localization Editor, Aksys Games, “but I don't really feel that's entirely accurate. 999 is a game that simulates life, or at least it would if your life was about being trapped on a sinking ship and forced to complete a series of incomprehensible puzzles before your practically inevitable death. It is about relationships, and how they will ultimately kill you. There is also some blood, and an ax, so if you've always wanted some blood and an ax in your life, there you go. But what really brings 999 to life are the people who inhabit it. You will learn to care for them; to feel as though you are there and they are your friends, and then they will die because you made the wrong choices. Just like in real life.”
