About Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors

Junpei, a normal college student, suddenly finds himself involved in a deadly conspiracy he could never have imagined.

He wakes aboard an old cruise liner. Dazed and confused, he stumbles around the room he finds himself in, trying desperately to remember how he got there. The first thing he notices is a number, scrawled across the door… A bright red number 5.

As Junpei’s memory returns, his mind is filled with the image of a mysterious figure in a gas mask, and their haunting words:“You are going to participate in a game. The Nonary Game. It is a game...where you will put your life on the line.”

“We’ve decided to call 999 an‘Adventure’ game,” says 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.”
