In the online room escape games you have to figure out ways to escape a room. You do this by searching around the room for clues and objects that you can use later to escape the room. I was wondering if this game is similar? Thanks in advance!
That's a pretty accurate description, 999 basically is an "escape the room" game. It also has a major emphasis on plot and character development, as it's considered to be a visual novel/puzzle game hybrid.
