Also, Yoko Taro (Who is a very close friend of Uchi's.) dropped out of the Vtuber market shortly before A-set resumed tweeting, though this might just be an incredible coincidence.
If you go frame-by-frame on the opening static-y bit, it's the blood covering the screen that ended her execution video:
Oh, I looked this up before and thought it was hilarious when seen after playing other Uchi stuff:
I wonder what's the deal with VR.
There is a stupid amount of symbolism packed into her name. The whole Set thing, then her normal, non-internet name is Iris, which connects with the obvious eye motif of the game, but then it's also Siri backwards, which ties into the Naixatloz thing, AI, etc...
Yeah, basically. A character from the game is an in-universe internet celebrity, and has been making videos. References to what is seemingly an in-game satanic, Illuminati cult have slowly infiltrated the videos too, etc.
That sounds rad. Fuck.
One of us might have to make a clearer thread that summarises what's happening, since a lot of folks who would otherwise be interested in it don't seem to know it's going on.
Does this mean he won't recycle the same twists? Only time will tell!
It's been a while since I played it, but apart from the ending I found ZTD to be pretty good. Still, I'm also really curious to see what a new setting and story will bring to the table.For real though, a murder mystery detective game where you actually do detective-y things from Uchikoshi does sound fucking amazing and I'm incredibly excited to play this, even after ZTE ended up being a fairly big disappointment. At least we got a clean slate here, no Zero Escape baggage attached.
Yeah I thought ZTD had an amazing midgame, it only really fell apart during the end of the game.
