I enjoyed this game very much. Took me awhile, though.
(5/10) Gameplay: There isn't just an overabundance of gameplay. It's not a super long game, but it takes time, as there's a lot of reading. It's rather like playing a graphic novel with a few puzzles in between chapters. I didn't find most of the puzzle levels to be very difficult. If you were left on your own to play them, it would probably get old quickly. Fortunately, the story and characters make up for that, which leads me to...
(9/10) Story: The story may take a little while to get going, I know I wasn't digging it during the first 15 minutes or so, but after the first little hurdle, things start getting interesting quickly. There are six endings, do yourself a favor and play them all. After your first ending you'll be doing a lot of fast forwarding, but the extra plot you uncover across the various endings is very fun. Lemme tell you, the last ending is AWESOME.
The characters a great, and each one seems to become more endearing as you play through all the endings, as you learn things about them that you hadn't known in the ending before.
Overall, it's definitely worth a look. Not for everyone, but definitely for those who like a good story.
if you like the escape the room games this is for you! but even if you don't its a perfect fit if you want to unravel a cruel story involving a sinking ship filled with strangers who have no past relation with each other except you and your child hood friend, along with a brother and sister, a dancer, a big man, an elder guy, and i white haired dude, not to mention the short life man who's name is never revealed, in story mode, theres many dialogue but don't be afraid to start over after the game ends because you can skip all dialogue,the catch is that there are 6 different endings, caused on the choices you make, you may set a characters fate without even knowing it, and its worth it, i completed one ending that took about 12 hours staying up till 12:30, and i was hooked by the mystery of how they got here and why their there, its a saw movie squeezed in a ds,

I got it in the mail yesterday and I was very anxious to get started from all the great reviews. Now I remember why I never side with the crowd, that is the same with games and movies. This is far too much reading. I actually like reading, but not in game format. I'm a reader and a gamer, separately, I don't need the two to mix. I felt like I was reading forever and when I actually started playing, there was STILL more reading left that kept interrupting the play time. Just not my speed so I'm sending it back so that another game off my list doesn't have to be held back for this.
