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.

While I love puzzle games, especially those that make me really think, this game was not what I expected, much less wanted.
Don't get me wrong, I love reading. However, I love reading books, not games.
It took me an hour to get through the first two doors only because I spent forty-five minutes tapping through text. The game wouldn't be nearly as long if I didn't have to read a novel to get through it.
The premise was interesting but I didn't feel like there was a lot of content. The puzzles weren't that difficult, especially with the game explaining every little challenge, negating the point of putting any thought into it.
