I never got the chance, the game ended with Junpei just looking at it. Now doing a second playthrough with a different path, going to see what happens.

Second play through complete, once again using no guides or walkthroughs.  I took route 5-7-6 on this occasion, and while I admit to taking my sweet time figuring out room 6, I got there with a rather brute-force approach.  Anyway...

Something else Junpei alluded to in this ending...

Spoiler:
 

I've still got a few rooms I've not yet visited, so next play through will hopefully include those, then I might be tempted to look at some guides and see what I missed and what is required to get the Ultimate ending. Then I'll move onto VLR.

Okay, done the axe ending, and now trying again with a no-spoiler walkthrough for the true ending.

I'm at the point where the game ended on my first run, only this time,
Spoiler:
 

Genuinely cannot wait to find out how this plays out, so with that in mind, I'll get back to it.

Still not done, but some more thoughts as I progress through the [9] door...

This room is annoying, it's taken quite a bit longer than I'd have liked, though there was a nice reveal.

The game is basically Metal Gear Solid from that point, be prepared for crazy shit.

Okay, so trying to organise my thoughts to make sense of events. I haven't played VLR yet, so I guess some of this may be touched upon there (though I do hope not too much, a little ambiguity is quite nice sometimes!).

Spoiler:
 

Alright so thoughts on the game itself? Well, I enjoyed it, obviously, but it wasn't perfect. There's actually not much "game" here. The tag of being a "visual novel" may of course offer some defence, but your own interactions are limited to clicking on items within each environment and six or so instances in the exposition sections. Thankfully, those half a dozen occasions when you do get to make a choice does make a massive difference to proceedings, so you still feel like you're having an influence.

I also felt some of the puzzles were not particularly logical and required too much trial and error, and after the second and third play through I just wanted to bomb through the game and get the proper ending without having to do puzzle rooms I'd already beaten a couple of times. A minor gripe, but relevant to a game that begs to be played multiple times.

Ultimately though, last night I didn't care about any of that. I'd forgiven it every one of its flaws simply for how utterly and completely gripping the true ending was. I'd guessed some of it correctly, but not enough and it genuinely had my mind racing for an hour or more thereafter. That doesn't happen too often. I may not have enjoyed all my time with it, but I'll struggle to think of a game with an ending I enjoyed more.

Yeah in my head the fainting occured for that reason to.

This bit of script might be useful to keep in minds with thoughts.
Spoiler:
 

EDIT: I just realised most of what me and Neo discusssed plotwise isn't even in this topic. If we play SSD again i don't mind talking about this game if you want. VLR will resolve all questions though, but piss you off as you want the third game lol.

As daft as it sounds, the thing that concerns me most is something I read on Gamefaqs;
Spoiler:
 

I'd loveto chat about 999 at some point, I really would.  I'm still buzzing from the final reveal.  Do I need to play VLR before we do so to prevent the risk of spoilers or are they quite separate games than simply reference a few of the same things?

One other thing that I thought was very cool but hadn't actually noticed until the end...

There's actually a perfectly sensible reason for that. Its mentioned in VLR.

I'd say play this asap, while the first one is fresh in your mind, you'll get the most out of it that way. There's lots of little tidbits for people who've played the first game. I think VLR is probably the better game of the two, but the self contained nature of 999 is actually great to. I'll just remind you as in the first game you have to pay attention to everything as it all has a point eventually.
