My friend bought it at GS but the new copy was gutted. YMMV on a sealed "new" copy from GS.

Yeah, I guess if you want to keep it sealed its worth just going to Amazon.

Is this the type of game that may not drop significantly lower in price and may go out of production instead? I always have problems identifying which titles may become rare.

I highly recommend this! I paid full price and I rarely pay full price for a DS game. Get this game.

If you enjoyed games like Phoenix Wright and Hotel Dusk like me, then you won't be disappointed by 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors.

I just finished this game and I can't believe I almost passed this game up. I want a sequel and/or a prequel as soon as possible. I just want more of this, currently trying to find the soundtrack.

Like The World Ends With You, this game actually was rare and expensive for a short time after release, but seems to have been reprinted since, and the price has steadily gone down again. I wouldn't worry about it going anywhere.

I got the worst ending imaginable in the game and still loved it. A little slow but easily one of the most interesting game stories ever. Just prepare to be left with more questions than answers.

Actually, you're expected to play through the game taking different paths to unlock further information and divergent endings. The "true ending" can't even be gotten on the first playthrough, I think it requires at least three... But the game actually uses the multiple trips through the game conceit in a very, very interesting way. Plus on subsequent plays you can fast-forward the text that you've seen previously, making it much quicker.

Overwhelming amount of positive CAG feedback in the Gamestop thread had me wanting to buy it. Driving to a Gamestop for a gutted copy prevented me. No tax means this actually comes out a little cheaper for me anyway. In for 1.

Lord Kefka... you're insatiable.

Depending on where you live, this could be cheaper than Gamestop when you take sales tax into account.

This game is an interactive novel. If you don't like reading, it isn't for you.

I want a sequel and/or a prequel as soon as possible. I just want more of this, currently trying to find the soundtrack.


The team behind this game just announced a new game that will, like this one, be a combination of escape puzzles and interactive novel, which roughly translates as Good People Die. We don't know anything about the story. Could be a sequel, could be a new game entirely. My guess is secret sequel, where it has its own story, but in the end, you find out they're related.

I'm usually really bothered by slow text, but it wasn't so bad in this game. It goes a lot slower than I can read, but about as fast as the characters would be talking. The fact that you can entirely skip text that you've already seen makes it fine.

I was about to ask "ironic in the Alanis sense?," except this isn't even that. Unless it was intentionally, and I just fell for it?

I'll have to take your word for it. I loved this game during the first two or so playthroughs. I just finished the third -- another bad ending -- and at this point I'd just like the real ending. By now, you've seen all of the rooms from the branching paths up to the bad endings, and although each playthrough offers more story and a better sense of characters' motives, you're stuck having to 'seek a way out' through the same puzzles and right-button through, what, over a half hour of text at least, before learning if your choice combination changed anything.

I finally checked a barebones spoiler list to learn which choices are significant, because if I spend another hour just to get a repeat ending, it's not going to be worth the time investment.

(granted your old choices are greyed out on subsequent playthroughs, but by the fourth, everything is grey.)

Bought a GameStop "New" copy to be sure I got one at $20 3 weeks ago. I was hoping for an Amazon price match at the time. This is close enough. I hate how they sell gutted as new, so now I can return it and get a sealed copy for less after tax.

I bought this at GS also but had a $10 off preowned so as much as I would have supported the game maker (that usually doesn't happen) my inner CAG won over and got the used for $7.

This game is a great game if you like great story and don't mind reading. Kinda like a saw game, but with an actual plot and a good one at that.

I was really just making a joke, as I genuinely have enjoyed the game thus far (2 bad endings, was working toward a entirely different story when I shut off my DS and forgot to save my progress. Haven't played since). I even started a flowchart of paths.
