I did like Zero Escape series and Danganronpa a lot...but I don't go out of my way to buy VN's. If it's as good as those I might pick it up. But there was at least some puzzle/mystery solving in those games too.
The story is told from the perspective of several different characters which you can switch between at any time. You pick one to start and then you might hit a roadblock that stops you from progressing because you haven't completed a certain action with another character OR you might hit a roadblock / bad ending because you took a certain action with another character. So you aren't just a passive observer of the story, you have to figure out how you need to switch between characters in order to move them all forward. It uses a flow chart system not unlike the Zero Escape series. So I guess that's the closest it comes to gameplay is trying to figure out what you need to do in each character's timeline to keep them all alive.
