We here at Kotaku are big fans of the high school death game/courtroom drama of Danganronpa. But the two games out right now are not the whole story. There is also a duology of prequel light novels called Danganronpa Zero. And if you enjoyed either of the games even a little, you really must read them.
Last year, we took a look at the third arc of the light novel series Sword Art Online (which is getting an anime adaptation later this year); but as enjoyable as that was, it is nothing compared to the heartbreaking, beautiful tale that follows it: Mother’s Rosario.
Harvey Smith — who you probably know as a chief architect of Deus Ex and of last year’s hit stealth/action hybrid Dishonored — has made games about secret alien UFO labs and supernatural steampunk assassins.
