I am predicting that, tied to the "The doll parts didn't have gloves", that this figure is not the doll and the point of the gas was to swap her in. Hence the bleeding (and not having to explain advanced AI if possible, though it's always a possibility).

I was curious that at least one of the earlier rooms it was commented that people didn't see any security cameras or similar.

Anyway, looks cool and hype, thanks for showing this off! Will be reading along.

Also, being right is not always the most useful path! :D

But yeah, I'd put a little money on him being an ex-cop. Especially with the whole having shot someone. I don't thiiiink there's a "You all deserve this" vibe so far. But it's so often a end twist it's hard to tell.

I also forgot and was going to assume someone was going to die due to not having a card to scan and Sara was going to have to pick which card to scan which would lead to crazy branching.

Miley believes there are 11 living players of which 5 with be picked in the pre-lims, according to the post.

EDIT : I guess two people can still tie. I'm thinking the prize can be shared. The mastermind does not seem to mind extra and early deaths.

I am pleasantly surprised at how good this is seeming.

EDIT : Seeming just because you know, maybe the actual gamefeel is worse than the screenshots, but the BGM seems solid?

Dammit Sou, don't pull a SPOILER on us.

Also hmm. Should play Dangan3 sometime, but money and gotta chew through Somnium first.

Dear God don't out Joe. Even if it is a bad end, it is one I'd rather see first. Not that it is a goon vote anyway.

I gotta clap. And maybe feel a bit sick. Just hoping the writer hasn't emptied their ideas bin at this point.

Well. That's pretty metal. I do like the changes around the eyes and such.

So, bets on Keiji having killed some really bad people, or some really innocent people? I think it's probably more than just failed to save some people, given context.

I was actually surprised they didn't make them buy keycards to a cafeteria or something, just to break the ice of trading

Remember the rules are not enforced by a ubiquitous spirit either. Though as with most such stories the overseer tries to give this impression. We also don't know their overall goal, but we can assume the rule is there to stop everyone just entering the voting chamber and wearing their card like an ID badge. But things that are shenanigans might play into the masterminds plan. Especially if it's all for entertainment. (Diagetically. Obviously the story is for our entertainment.)

So, the boy cheering Kanna up sure looked like Joe, huh?

Oddly glad you didn't put looking at the item up for a vote. Even though my instincts were screaming to just let it be.

Maybe an amnesiac survivor of a previous death game or hostage situation, hence her not remembering being super rich with Kai as a cook?

Mmm. Maybe that's too 999/VLR/ZTD style.

Maybe Kanna stole Sou's hat? No motive other than spite "My dead sister doesn't have an AI." so probably not.

Or the person the chained woman is speaking to and is speaking to her might not be Keiji. There was no line about recognizing his voice, right? So maybe he just had to watch as someone did that (and then probably shot and killed that person).

Kind of wish we had a screenshot of what trying to attack the hallucinations did.

But thanks for showing this off, explains some of the earlier choices. :D

Yeah, it seems like we could at least flip for a couple of shots. Though I was expecting that to come up more as a time passing cost/progress meter.

Voting No, spare her but I'm not sure I can justify either course.

Do we know if the +1s were always the ones that were released with the unscraped key? Seems weird to bias the test in favour of the person you didn't plan on taking.

Of course, if this was Uchikoshi game, it'd be (spoilers for Zero escape and such games) Chance of having pyschic powers when exposed to extreme negative emotions. but not getting that feel here.

Q-Taro would also be easy to bribe into doing it for the masterminds with even vague promises of aid and help.

We can be pretty sure (but not certain) that it was Keiji's trade that gave Sara the Keymaster.

But not that it was his card he gave her. He could have traded her anyone else's and just ran with whatever her reaction was.

Spoilering because I'm replying soon after the post for once
It really sucks for Kanna, but the whole game sucks for everyone so I have to applaud Kanna for pulling it off...

Then I remember the message was written by Sou who could easily advise and guide her actions. That might get him killed if the truth didn't out but he was in a good position to nudge things and seems happy to play the odds (see being happy to set himself up as an obvious choice on the assumption he could flip everything on it's head enough to turn distrust into a shield.) Unless his hack of the role card was like 'The Sacrifice saves two other people' or 'Picks two people to survive' if they win.

Although the meta part of me still has a "But the easiest way to write this is Alice/Reko is the sacrifice because then timelines converge."

I was hoping Sou had hacked the cards so the display glitched and sometimes displayed as the wrong card.

I'm kind of sad you can't choose that option in a "You won't dare kill them all." line. And then get... wrecked.

Is the Daganronpa series any good? I missed out on it the first time round but I know they're coming out with a complete edition later this year.

I quite liked playing them all. Though the discussion minigames will be hit or miss depending on personal taste, and some standard Phoenix Wright style 'You have to poke this wrong statement, not the related one next to it!' And I think the playing does add to the fun and I did like messing with some of the post-game stuff though not to 100% completion. But your mileage may vary for both time and money.

As warned, it is very anime. Especially regarding women.

Googling stuff is pretty risky for spoilers, but looking up one of them on lparchive.org might give you a good idea of the feel and play of them.
