This is one of the most unique experiences I ever had with a videogame.

Summary: This is one of the most unique experiences I ever had with a videogame. Before I say anything else, note that this is a visual novel, meaning it'll have too much dialogue and focus mainly on the story, you'll be spending more time reading and following the story than actually playing, it's similar...
Summary: This game is more like playing through a Choose Your Own Adventure story. It's much more dialogue and story-based than action. While the player does interact to look for clues, the mystery is what makes it all so interesting and fun.
Grab it if you like engaging story, engaging puzzles, and disengaging door locks.

Summary: Some of the best writing I've seen in a VN? Check. Room escape that isn't just Newgrounds-tier "click the object"? Check. Plot twists that actually surprise you (well, surprised me at least...)? Check.
Summary: One of my favorite games. There are not many games now days that once you beat it, you immediately start up again but thats the way this game is set up. It will take multiple playthroughs of 6-8 hours each to learn different things about the characters depending on the paths and answers you take.
This is what I played last year when I should have been studying for finals.

Summary: Any visual novel or mystery fan with a DS (or 3DS) should definitely check out this game. It has some pretty endearing characters and puzzles that actually make you think, along with some point and click going into each room.
Summary: There's good stories. There's great stories. And over that, there's this game. I don't know how to explain how amazing and surprising is the story of 999. It has everything: Humor, suspense, intrigue and a incredible ending that you will remember for years.
Summary: As far as visual novels go, I'd say this game is one of my favorites. If you're not familiar with visual novels, it's basically like reading a story with some choices sprinkled in. This game actually has puzzles in there, which are fun to play and are thematically involved with the story.
Never played a visual novel? You'll still love this one!

Summary: I never thought that I was a visual novel kind of person. I love reading, and I love manga, and I love video games, so it seems like it would be a no-brainer. But picking up this game... I was blown away. This is brilliantly written, and all of the characters feel fleshed out, and very real.
Summary: A very cerebral and challenging game... at least in terms of plot. Featuring an interesting and unique cast of characters, plot, and math-based puzzles, "999" was an unexpectedly enjoyable game.
