Extreme Escape Adventure: Good People Die - Phi and Sigma

Extreme Escape Adventure: Good People Die

If you read my 999: Nine Hours Nine Persons Nine Doors post on my blog before, you’ll know just how much I loved that game and now Extreme Escape Adventure: Good People Die, the second game in the series, is coming out on the Nintendo 3DS and PS Vita (so glad I got a 3DS). I’m beyond excited and estatic, it felt so great when I found out about this game (and I doubt I was the only one).

Here is the Promo Anime, it set-up the events to come in the game and it does excite me A LOT:

 

Like 999, it uses the Nonary Game and as such, nine characters are introduced. If you played 999 you may recognise something, I for one am very curious as to what is going to happen in this game and a certain something which intrigued me a lot in 999 is getting me very excited for this game (well I should say a certain character).

Extreme Escape Adventure-Good People Die - Cast

The Cast (from left to right): Zero 3, Luna, Quark, K, Tenmyōji, Phi, Sigma, Yotsuba (Clover), Alice, Dio

Using wikipedia to get the character descriptions (didn’t include the full descriptions for each character, but it does contain a 999 spoiler):

  • Sigma – he is a college student who makes risqué jokes, which annoys girls. He serves as the game’s protagonist.
  • Phi – she is the mysterious girl who wakes up with Sigma in an elevator.
  • Dio – he is a blond man with a hat. An odd, callous and self-righteous troublemaker.
  • Tenmyōji – he is a stubborn, eccentric old man.
  • Quark – he is an innocent ten-year-old boy and tends to call Tenmyōji “grandpa”, but they don’t appear to be related.
  • Luna – is a woman in her early 20s and is a pacifist, and carries a physician’s license.
  • Yotsuba, known as “Clover” in the English language translation of 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, is a girl who has participated in the Nonary Game twice before. She became friends with Alice after meeting her in the Nevada desert around one year earlier.
  • Alice – she is a dark-skinned, exotic woman.
  • K – he is a big, buff guy who wears a metal mask and suit. He has amnesia, and cannot remember his real name or age.
  • Zero 3 – it is a bunny robot that serves as the gamemaster and oversees the progression of the Ambidex Game. An AI that gives penalties to those who go against the rules. It gets its instructions from “the true Zero”, who appears to be one of the 9 players.

Here’s the original trailer for those interested:

 

Very very exicted about this game, especially the “Ambidex Edition” of the Nonary Game. I’m very grateful Aksys Games brought 999 to America, and now I’m hoping they bring this game to America as well=).

    I myself played VLR for the Vita without realizing anything about it having a prequel. but I must say despite the confusing story (extremely so to me without any background knowledge at the time), it was ultimately the most fun I’ve ever had on a video game for recent years.

    Nevertheless though, I would not immediately promote the idea of “animating” it. The biggest fucking plot twist in the game makes no sense when you realize the anime is going for SIgma’s appearance to look “young” all the time, along with his voice.

    The over-all story pacing won’t make a lick of sense when you try to re-enact the game as an anime, specifically the plot line based on Sigma’s decisions. If you have ever watched Higurashi, you should probably have realized somewhere through the 2nd or 3rd loop that this was originally a game and that it is going for different outcomes based on information the viewer is unaware of.

    It becomes boring, disorientating, and really drawn out, which is something anime production companies can’t afford to throw money away on anymore based on how high quality anime has to be to meet “standards” of the norm. I mean sure, I hate new anime story-writing these days (even the newest trendy anime “Kill La Kill” is a repeat in something that was already done many, many times before it, only with a different name and setting) but this does not imply that you can easily take a story from a complex game and expect it to work out greatly.

    I don’t wanna sound like a broken record, but more evidence such as most Galge that get turned into anime feature a more watered down form of the original content to show a mix and mash of everything the game had, only for the producers to decide on the most generic heroic to be the anime’s focal point. Ultimately, if this does get turned into an anime, I might feel extremely disappointed in watching it to see some of my favourite points in the game be glossed over or skipped all together.

    Sorry for long rant, it’s how I feel about the subject. Also, I have recently started playing the prequel and it’s super easy. As for story, keeping it short and sweet: it’s awesome and easy to understand along with getting caught up in it.

      Yeah the big twist at the end wouldn’t work out if the story is turned into an anime, but Virtue’s Last Reward makes for a brilliant game that keeps you on edge and entertained throughout your play-through. There has been no announced for an anime release though, the only anime adaptation was the 13 minute OVA which recounts the beginning of the game and introduces each of its characters.

      I absolutely love the story created in 999 and expanded on in Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward, it is one of the most satisfying stories I have had the pleasure of experiencing in a game. Everything connects together in such a though-provoking way and the overall flavour of the games feels so fresh and compelling.
