Zero Escape, now what do you think when you hear that? Maybe you're thinking "ah this must be another room escape game" and you'd be right... And wrong. This game is a visual novel/puzzle game that follows the story of nine people who have been kidnapped and brought to a facility where they are forced to play a deadly game of trust based heavily on the prisoners dilemma (this should give you the gist of it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prisoner's_dilemma)

Zero Escape is much more then just a simple room escape game. You will be amazed by how the intricate twists and turns, the detailed plot, the character backstories all just meld together like a perfect burger (or favourite food of choice).

When you first start Zero Escape, you are introduced to Sigma (the protagonist), you learn that he's just a simple dude minding his own business, when suddenly he is rendered unconscious, waking later only to find himself in a room with a mysterious girl. This is where the game let's you know what it is all about.

The dialogue of the game is some of the best and human-like in the industry, people behave how they should, they panic and act how anyone would in the situation they have been dropped into, they don't understand why anything is happening and this creates a fantastically tense and interesting atmosphere to be a part of.

Zero Escape is an outstanding game/experience, from the bottom of my heart I recommend this game to anyone who enjoys mysterious stories of trust, deep relationships, and death.


"This game presents a brutal story of trust."
