Banshee’s Last Cry itself, meanwhile, appears to be a game in the style of a ‘choose-your-own’ adventure with the players navigating a closed-setting murder mystery set in a ski-resort. To take the stakes up even more, there are local legends of a banshee who can dismember a victim just with her scream. It’ll be up to the player to determine whether these legends hold water… and to survive if they do!
As with most good choose-your-own adventure games (books), players (readers) will need to keep their wits about them in order to survive the twists and turns of the narrative. There are also numerous endings to explore with a variety of tones from melodramatic to farcical. It also boasts impressive visuals and music to help immerse the player into the story more effectively.
The pedigree of the two studios involved is solid with Spike Chunsoft’s previous work including the Zero Escape series and Danganronpa Trigger Happy Havoc. While Aksys Games is a localisation studio which specialises in Japanese to English translations. Its’ previous works include the translation of the Agarest War series, Zero Escape: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors.
