A downloadable game for Windows

Your goal in this game is to kill me.

That's what they all heard. All nine of them heard this through their helmets. Of course, Pandora was part of the group. One of the nine. She, too, heard those words; those words she spoke in order to fool all of them.

Unfortunately, your time is not infinite.

But what is her actual goal, here? Where everyone wants to kill Pandora, she wants to kill someone else. She wants to kill the traitor. It's a meticulous plan, all leading to these six deadly hours. It would be funny if it wasn't so morbid.

Should the allotted time expire, then...

Pandora is the mastermind. This isn't about finding her; this is about finding the traitor. There are no innocents here, only criminals. And you're one of them. Welcome to My Emptiness.

You will all surrender your right to live.

The demo version is around an hour long. It contains what you can expect from the game, so feel free to try it as a preview.

The full version will contain the following:

  • Around a dozen ways to die
  • Over two dozen puzzles to solve
  • A story made of around 130,000 words
  • A "TRUST" type mechanic for character interactions
  • Autosave feature to make choices in each save matter

Game is intended for Windows only.

Be aware this is the second entry in the Abime Series. The first entry is Head AS Code. This pair of games is designed to be played in any order you like, but the third game (hitherto unannounced) should be played last, after the both of them.

I am fair... as long as you obey the rules.

what engine did you make this game with? btw great  main menu looking and options menu are insane!

also I played this game but I didn't even understand how should I solve the puzzle, can you give me a hint? I read your comment to someone asking the same thing and I still didn't get it.

Nevermind, I just finished the puzzle :)

don't forget to answer my question about the engine :)

I rarely see games like zero escape.....but this game is even looking better than ze!! I hope the story is good.

I'm using GameMaker 2 to make this game alongside the VNgen scripts (which you can see here: https://xgasoft.itch.io/vngen)

So I like the presentation. But I can't get past the first puzzle. The hints don't really help. Is there a walkthough?

There is no walkthrough for the demo. If you still need another hint: when you figure out what is the synonym of "nothing" based upon the second hint, the solution should become clearer.

Sorry, but it doesn't. Every synonym I can think of, of nothingness based on the idea of "increment" doesn't make a word/phrase in the box. I'm trying, but it's just not making sense to me. It's just a shame if there's no answer key since  it cuts me off from the rest of the demo so soon.

Simply ask then, what does the verb "to increment" mean?

To increase or gain. 

If you're still stuck, the synonym you're looking for is a number.
