Each participant is equipped with a bracelet that will kill them if they break the rules. Controlled by a mysterious rabbit named Zero III, the Nonary Game will force its players to decide who to trust and who to betray. If they can solve a series of fiendishly difficult puzzles, then perhaps they can uncover the mystery behind Zero III. Sigma will need all his wits to survive and escape alive, but who can he trust and who must he betray?
