So! The Room No. 9 demo is finally here. It’s more or less exactly what you’d expect if you’ve been keeping up with the game so far. Some things of note on the more technical side of things since ClockUp’s made a few nice quality-of-life adjustments to the engine and UI:2 Comments
So, the September issue of Cool-B is out and with it we have some more information about parade’s Room No. 9! First off some basic info recap since it’s scattered through several posts now:Leave a Comment
The Room No. 9 site updated with what looks to be a complete outline of the rules of the “game”––I mean, experiment. Also of note (although somewhat old news now), the game has a release date: September 30th. Voice actors will be announced next week in Cool-B. Amemiya mentioned on twitter that the staff’s favorite pick for Daichi was rejected in favor of their #2 pick because he fit Amemiya’s vision of the character better while Amemiya agreed with their #1 for Seiji.

They awaken to find themselves trapped in a secret room. There’s a monitor displaying a cruel and robotic message: “You have been selected as subjects in a behavioral analysis experiment,” and every day it presents them with challenges… Can [Daichi] let his best friend hurt him?

Haven’t blogged in a million years but I wanted to put info on this somewhere: Parade, developers of No, Thank You!!! sorta pre-announced their new game with a postcard recently. I’m guessing there was more info on the back because 2ch also reports that it’s a mid-price title––so a 4000 yen range rather than an 8000 yen range game (so probably shorter/fewer routes). Title: Room No. 9 Planning/direction/script: Amemiya Mitsuru Art: Nikaido Shino Scenario: Sawa Masaki Release date: Summer 2016 Tagline: “I wish we could have stayed friends.” (or something like that idk context) Both Amemiya and Sawa are back from…1 Comment
