In this Japanese murder mystery and visual novel, the students at elite Hope's Peak Academy are visiting the abandoned Jabberwock Island for a "lovey-dovey, heart-throbbing school trip." But things turn weird quickly when the school's evil principal Monokuma informs the students they'll have to stay on the island unless they can murder another student and get away with it. And that's just the beginning - nothing is ever as it seems on Jabberwock Island. The odd plot lurches all over the place as students are murdered, or executed for committing murder, identities are shattered, and worldwide conspiracies are revealed. Your reward for completing the game is a mode where the field trip goes exactly as planned, and nothing strange happens at all.
