Zero Escape (Series) Review
Posted: 18 months ago, last updated yesterday.
This somewhat forced setup (both in the game and for the player) sets the scene for narrative and puzzle escape-room sections. These combine to tell the story of each character that is deeper than you might expect. Along the way, the choices you make affects how these unfold.
The games are popular for their experimental storytelling and narrative that pushed boundaries. Although the peculiarity and youth culture of these games can be a barrier, the development of character and nuanced plot are enjoyed by a wide range of players.
