Rating Summary
This is an adventure game in which players follow the story of nine people forced to play a life or death game while trapped in an underground shelter. Players mostly watch events unfold in a visual novel with occasional choices that affect the storyline. Characters sometimes use weapons to kill each other: a character shot in the head; a man shot with a crossbow; a character attacking a person with a chainsaw. One dramatic scene depicts a woman cutting out a dead man's heart with a crossbow arrow; though the sequence is obscured, there are protracted crunching and squishing sound effects. Blood-splatter effects and pools of blood frequently occur throughout the game. The dialogue contains references to sexual material (e.g.,"Call HR, this is sexual harassment, old man"; "Then sleep with me!"; "He'd ask you for money, sex..."). One scene depicts a male character briefly straddling and holding down a female character's arms. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” appear in dialogue.
