Solve Murders, Befriend Schoolgirls: Danganronpa Out

A cult hit

Fifteen students are trapped inside a school and told they may only leave if they murder another student and can get away with it. As one of the students, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc [official site] will have players investigating each murder, searching for clues, interviewing people, and trying to win folks over to catch the killers. That's a fine premise that, isn't it? Then people see the evil anime teddy bear and are often a bit put-off. But wait! I've heard great things about Danganronpa from folks who played it on PlayStation Vita, and today the game arrived on PC.

Danganronpa's a visual novel-y, adventure-ish, investigate-o sort of a game, with clues to find, people to pump for information and try to stay friendly with, and smidges of Ace Attorney through trials. And, obviously, it's a little silly.

Rather than relay half-remembered things a pal told me ages ago, I'll point you towards this nice comment from 'MadTinkerer' on our last Danganronpa story.

Danganronpa is out on Steam for Windows and Mac, priced at £18.39 thanks to a 20% discount. Developers Spike Chunsoft plan to bring more Danganronpa our way too.
