Full details on the Famitsu article have leaked out, explaining both gameplay and the characters. I’ll leave the info about the characters under a cut, but the info on how the Ambidex Game works probably isn’t that spoilery.
Same system as before (novel part / escape part). If you’re stuck during an escape part, you can lower the difficulty. There’s a mini game (/”several minigames”?) using the gyroscope.
The points (“BP”) on the characters’ bracelets vary during the game. When you reach 9 BP, you get a unique chance to open the door numbered “9” and escape, but if you reach 0 or less, you receive an injection and die.
Rules of the Ambidex Game:
- Those whose bracelets numbers are the same color as yours are your opponents. - Each game pits one player against two (so it would seem that means three sets of games, with three players each? not 100% sure…). - A game ends when you choose either “cooperation” or “betrayal” on the terminal (wut). - If both sides pick “cooperation”, both sides gain 2 BP. - If both sides pick “betrayal”, the points don’t change. - If one side was betrayed, the betrayed side loses 2 BP and the betrayer side gains 3. There’s an example given: if you and your opponent(s?) both have 1 BP left, you could die if betrayed, but if you choose betrayal and the other side is trying to cooperate, you’ll end up killing them.
Spoilers (character bios) start after the cut, and include spoilers for the ending of 999.
