  • And for obvious reasons the first thing I thought when I saw the screenshot was “999?”

    • Julien_N

      The boat interior and the premise of the game are indeed reminiscent of 999. The stairway in particuliar looks like 999’s one.

      • It’s because the boat in 999 was (mild spoilers?) created to be a replica of the Titanic.

        • Julien_N

          Ah yes, I completely forgot that!
          It has been a few months since I finished it.

          • Amazing, wasn’t it? And the sequel Zero Escape is just as good

          • Julien_N

            999 wasn’t as good as Ever17 but it is still an amazing game indeed. I’ll get a PAL 3DS copy of VLR soon, after the price drops a little bit. (below 30€ I would say)

          • Indeed, I’m playing it on Vita, but it’s directly linked to 999 so you really should get it.

    • drexxia

      you beat me to that lol, same thought :3

  • Kunyoung

    Obviously it was an Iceberg.

    Murder on the Titanic sounds like it’s going to have the most unfulfilling ending ever. “YES! The murderer has been caught! The people on board this ship are now safe!” …As the developers are all like, TROLOLOLOLOL!
