(Quantum Suicide Main Page|Twitter|Itch.io|Steam)

Quantum Suicide is a Japanese-style Visual Novel set in space. You play as a researcher aboard a spaceship on an epic mission to find humanity a new home. The mission is jeopardized by a corrupted A.I system that forces you to play “The Deletion Game”, a weekly game where you must battle your crew mates for survival. Prepare to make both friends and enemies of your crew members as you play through a series of puzzles and strategy mini-games. Can you see the Everett’s mission through to the end…alive?

A game of betrayal, deception and romance in the cold depths of space.

This science fiction thriller tells the tale of an intergenerational mission and its diverse crew, fighting against a deadly AI (and each other) for the chance to survive. Strategy, love interests and quantum mechanics await you. Your choices change the fate of everyone in Quantum Suicide, releasing on PC and Mac Dec 2019, and the PlayStation Vita, PS4 and Switch in late 2020.

MAIN CHARACTER

When we meet our beloved protagonist, we don’t really know much about them exactly–except that they are a researcher on board the ship. Troubling as it is, there are mysterious circumstances revolving around us as well as the Deletion Game that is being incurred on the rest of the staff on the Everett. Not much is given, but there’s enough to speculate on and what exactly we are to D.A.I.

GAMEPLAY

GRAY’S FIRST IMPRESSION

‧͙⁺˚*・༓☾ Similar to most visual novels, this game has a ‘choose your own adventure’ style adaptation in place. Meaning your choices dictate what will happen to you and everyone around you. Whether it means falling in love, killing someone, or possibly surviving, choices matter–choose carefully.

The interface at which we receive when we open the game at first glance is visually appealing, giving off the vibes of being on an actual space ship. With the settings dial on the right hand corner, there are buttons that glow when you hover your mouse over certain toggles like SKIP, AUTO, and SETTINGS.

In the top left, I love the setup of the calendar, as it gives the nice futuristic touch this game needs. It also showcases some data in the tiny circle, which is something to pay mind to as you progress through the game. ☽༓・*˚⁺‧͙

INTERESTING ELEMENT

‧͙⁺˚*・༓☾ MAKE TEN is a game within the game that you must play to save yourself and others, or allow people to die with. Above is the video of game’s rules and how to play, but because a lot of the cards are digital… It makes it hard to trust who you are working with and if they are telling you the truth of their numbers or planning to betray you. Welcome to the Danganronpa in space! ☽༓・*˚⁺‧͙

⭒❃.✮:▹ Depending on the answers you choose, your beginnings will lead you to the various love interests on the Everett. Each one giving you a bit of a preview of their personalities, and unique quirks that make them either lovable or suspicious as hell. My first option in the beginning was to see the doctor for stomach pains, to which Nikolas explains that he gave me a TEST SAMPLE OF HIS NEW SUPPLEMENT the night before. 

In order to rectify the situation, he gives me more medicine and then to stop me from leaving, he injects me with a sedative and knocks me the eff out for some time… I was lucky to wake up, but they should of gave us an option to slap or punch the dude… ◃:✮.❃⭒

⭒❃.✮:▹ I was pretty impressed with how different everyone was compased and written, not only were they memorable. We got a few laughs in, and a couple of bribes too. I feel the one person I’m fairly interested in is Katashi, just because of the fact he can feed me and I won’t have to worry about cooking food LMAO.

One thing I still don’t understand is how I managed to burn dinner rolls, it amazes me with how technology could simply still let you down regardless of how far we’ve come. What was worse with the dinner rolls? A.I. our friendly neighborhood security system turned on the sprinklers in the kitchen… So not only did we have burnt dinner rolls, both of us got soaked–And I was kicked out of the kitchen (BOO!) ◃:✮.❃⭒

⭒❃.✮:▹ Meeting Beatrix no matter what shape or form, or route, I’m unamused by her antics and her arrogance. I do have some soft spots for oresama-type characters or dominant types, but Beatrix instantly made it to my ‘HELL NO -LIST’ with her attitude. While in the clips from above she is hitting on me and such, the fact is, she also wants to throw me out into space and allow me to die from oxygen deprivation. Yep… When someone states outright that I should die for something you can’t claim I did (yet… As there’s still so much mystery going on), you best believe you’re on my shit list for a good while until something magickal puts you back on my good list.  ◃:✮.❃⭒

⭒❃.✮:▹ Meeting our beloved captain was interesting, as it seems we’re already dating but keeping things a secret from others. I’m not quite sure if we were dating prior to me coming on board or after I came on board and the AI started to flip out. It’s safe to say that I do think I can trust the captain, but there was so much in such a small amount of time that happened in just agreeing to meet up with her. I think my brain screamed, “WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?!”

Considering there are two captains on the ship… Or… perhaps… the other creator of the Deletion Game, D.A.I. is forcing her hand at creating more damage for the already throttled crew…  ◃:✮.❃⭒

GRAY’S CORNER

Nice panties…?

。*゚+.*.。 I adore this demo, and it has been one of my favorites to play since finding it, including the Christmas Special that the company released awhile back. I’m looking forward to the game’s official release this year, as there have been setbacks due to the coronavirus. I’m glad to support the small team that has brought the game to life, and I’m extremely eager to play it and find out the mystery of D.A.I. and the fates of the crew members of the Everett space ship.
