The player takes on the role of a student at Hope’s Peak Academy named Makoto Naegi. A Monokuma teddy bear kidnaped him. Along with other kidnapped students, you are forced to play a game of life and death: To get out, you must kill others and avoid detection (otherwise, you will be prosecuted and also lose your life). After a certain period and no one is killed, the party must nominate one person to be sacrificed, or else the group will be killed, and the last person standing will be the free one.
In the role of Makoto Naegi, the player must discover what is going on to decipher the secrets behind the kidnapping and find the killer. In addition, the game also has the following 3 game modes:
Daytime: When there are no murders, players will have time to explore everywhere, talk to other characters to get more information from them, and unlock many other skills.
Kill time: When a person is murdered, the player must search for clues, gather witness statements before moving on to the tense Class Trails stage.
Class Trails: The most intense mode because all the kidnapped people will have to fight with each other, the player will at all costs protect his evidence and the person without the clearest evidence (even if it is a murderer) killer or not) will be voted by the crowd as the killer and will be executed in an extremely barbaric way.
The player’s main task is to find the killer, avoid making himself the most suspected target or lose his life, and at the same time to find out the truth of who is behind the bear Monokuma. With each completed mission, the player will unlock new skills or receive items needed for the investigation.
Skill is a feature exclusively for the main character; the more people you make friends with or solve more cases, the more skills you will unlock. Using skills is to give players more advantages in solving cases or fighting with other players,…
Report Card is a card (each character will own one) detailing that character from appearance and personal information to the character’s skills. Players can rely on that to make their inferences more accurately, avoiding important, confusing details.
GRAPHICS & SOUND
The graphics in the game are a perfect combination of 2D and 3D to both have an anime style and help players visualize the details of the surrounding space. Besides, the game also has gore, violent, haunting scenes, players need to prepare psychologically before playing. The sound is very carefully invested when each character has their own voiceover, all of which are performed by professional Japanese voice actors. Besides, the music in the game is constantly changing to push the player’s emotional circuit to the climax to help improve the gaming experience.
