Top Hat Studios will publish the upcoming game Thief’s Roulette. A game developed by Hiromu656, a solo game developer and gamer. Thief’s roulettes story and plot was given much information via Top Hat Studios themselves in a Statement that gave the game its style and ideas.
“Thief’s Roulette is a choice-driven puzzle game inspired by the Danganronpa and Zero Escape series. Thief’s Roulette takes the narrative heavy design of visual novels and combines it with immersive, first-person puzzle gameplay to create a unique gaming experience. Thief’s Roulette hopes to take the player on a journey through betrayal, deception, and trust. Player freedom through choices, building alliances, or creating rivals will be the driving force of the game.”
The Games style and genre was heavily inspired by a Spike Chunsoft game, a gaming development studio, you most likely know them for their Most recent publication of AI: The Somnium Files, But you most likely know Spike from its legendary series, Dangonranpa.
Dangonranpa is a detective, murder mystery game, moreso a Visual novel. Heavily narrated games based off of puzzles rather combat or controls. Thiefs roulette was heavily inspired by Dangonranpa, and games that have a certain mystique about them. Which games that have a narrative driven like Lift is Strange or Detroit: Become human, games like this tend to have a narrative lead than anything else. With my love for mysteries and especially Dangonranpa, which made me feel like a genius and a complete idiot at the same time, I cannot wait to see what Roulette will roll out.
