CAGE -CLOSE- (PC) Walkthrough by the Awesome Me

「INITIATING THE “CAGE……… 

70% LOADING……… 99% LOADING………

LOADING COMPLETE.

EXECUTING THE “CAGE”IN 3…2…1…」




Storyline

Wake up when he realized he's lying on the cold hard ground of an abandoned theme park, Konno Teppei is now forced to play a suspicious but rewarding game where his life is at stake. Will he find a way out or he end up in the noose?

CLOSE focusing more on the management side.


WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE, WHEN AND AFTER PLAYING THE GAME

-BEFORE-

You are playing as Konno Teppei, worker of a product delivery and right now he needs to play a risky game. You'll be playing a total of 29 endings; 1 neutral ending, 7 for Saiki, 7 for Ishimatsu, 6 for Maki, 8 for Kurusu and Oohira.

There's no actual good or bad end but I think that endings that closes with a credit song is a good end while the bad end have no song.

Also, the sprites change. It took me by surprise but it's a pleasant surprise.


-WHEN-

Save by clicking at the menu below the text box. Indicator of which character route you're currently playing is at top left corner.

CLOSE introduces us to a LOVE and DESTROY route mechanic. You'll know which one you're in after completing a character common route and there's a brief moment of black background, name of the route and some snippet of a novel that (somewhat) related with the character you're playing on.



I believe this mechanic was already present in OPEN but it didn't expressed correctly but basically LOVE route is sweet and pure while DESTROY route is... well, destroying you.

But it's not always like that. I'm looking at you Ishimatsu.


-AFTER-

Extra menu unlocked after getting at least one end. There's CG, Scene, Movie and Ending List. Last CG will be obtain after full ending completion.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Just cancel your work. Which one is more important; me or the work?"

Sorry dude but I have someone to kill tonight.


I too want to have friends that I can't share my problems with.

I AM FEELING GUILTY SO SORRY


"It's an easy thing. You'll be mine from now on. Then you can't deny anything that I said, right?"

This kid know what he wants and he gets it fast.


By my words, Jun laughs gladly while saying "it's nothing", went away from the room.

You can't see it but I have heart eyes right now.


Jun becomes bashful..... That is cute, oi. THAT IS CUTE OOIII!!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA JUN IS CUUUUUUUTE AAAAAAAAAA *burns own ass*


I am not an old me anymore.

That's it that's the whole game. Literally.


He is somehow kind to me.

Because he is cruel in his own route, that's why.



So on your left is Saiki Jun while on your right is Saiki Shun. By this you can say that both of them are siblings, or more specifically; twins.

My question is.... Is Jun real or not? I have my own theories but I want to hear yours as well.


And he pulled out a memo pad and a pen from a breast pocket. It has a Black Dog logo on it. Seeing Saiki like this, I laugh through my nose.

Ok wow that is cute Konno hell.


It's my first time seeing this face. It's my first time, seeing an expression of a kid.

Noooooo I'm not sad it's just *sniff* I-It's nothing really.


"Even though you have an ugly face, but I think I might like you."

IT'S TIME FOR CELEBRATION WEEEEEEEEEE EVEN THOUGH IT'S JUST A LIGHT KISS BUT I FEEL HAPPY WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIII


"I shouldn't have made those guys did you."

GO BLAME YOUR 11-YEAR-OLD SELF


This is a cardboard box of Ehime mandarin oranges. I don't see an equal image of that man with mandarin oranges.

I now imagine Ishimatsu carrying a box full of oranges.


"Yesterday you fell from the stairs, now you fell in bathroom."

Konno Teppei's Series of Unfortunate Events, now on cinema!


"I prefer your daytime self even more."

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)



( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)  ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)  ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)



Mayuko, hugging a book close to her, fall to her side.

FUCCKING ISHIMATSUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU


Like a cat playing with a dying mouse.

Describe your boyfriend who just murdered your whole family in alternate universe.


I look into my favourite face in this guy.

I'm still bitter with what you just did to Konno's family but.... ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)


I want to run to him right now and hug him and thank him.

Woah Konno don't show your thirst.


I imagine Maki-san with a fishing attire, with a fishing cap and fishing rod, but that's not Maki-san at all.

That is very ugly tbh


Ordinary guy, uninteresting, a waste of time, like a woman, a pig.

Konno quality in Maki's route. I have to say I agree wholeheartedly.


"Because my dad watches the game."

FUCKED UP BIG TIME


"Because, your profile looks too good, didn't realized I just kissed you ☆"

Lmao don't put the blame on Konno.


"Kujo-san won't stop talking about "Konno-kun, Konno-kun" that I accidentally remembers it."

Kujo's love for Konno is endless help that poor guy out.


"Our power combine together will be 1 million horsepower."

And then you decide to run away with it, hmmmmmmm?


Running to the battlefield by his own, Oohira looks like some certain of Stallone.

Stallone... DID YOU MEAN SYLVESTER STALLONE?


"So... You're the one who runs the site "My Angel Konno"?"

Kujo vs Oohira on Who Loves Konno The Most; Round 1!



Aaaaa we're done with CLOSE! Lots of conflicts and questions resolved in this one like why Saiki made the game, why Ishimatsu works under Saiki without any complaint, how they failed to mention Oohira in OPEN...

Scrap the last one tho.

Anyway let us wait patiently for CAGE -ANOTHER-, but for now...



「“CAGE”ARE NOW CLOSED. SHUTTING DOWN………

22 comments:

  1. GOSH NEECHAN I FEEL YOU SO MUCH ON ISHIMATSU'S ROUTE! GRRRR I know that Close is the villainous side of Cage (while Open is the heroic) but AT LEAST EVERYONE ELSE GOT A HAPPY ENDING ARGGGHHH Why, Kyuuyou Sawaame and Awaya Lychee??? I'll keep my fingers crossed for the upcoming fandisk!

    You know, I really miss the times where BL games were used to be voiced by anime voice actors especially the veteran ones like Jun Fukuyama, Shinichiro Miki yadda yadda. But now it's to bad that only unknown voice actors that usually did visual novels/doujin titles do the job instead ;_; Waaahhh at least I want to hear Konno being voiced by Tetsuya Kakihara *sobs*

    The art for psychedelic looks beautiful, so the same probably goes to Cage Another :D Eeekk can't wait! And according to vndb, Psychedelic will have reversible roles :)

    1. EVERYONE DESERVE A HAPPY ENDING GOD DAMMIT I don't know how many fingers I've crossed for some freaking news about ANOTHER aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

      It's good to explore some hidden gems.And suddenly I can hear Shimono Hiro voicing Saiki. If LOVE&DES wants to remake OPEN and CLOSE with a voice I'd say BRING IT ON I'M READY

      It's crisp and colourful and funky, me like. WAAAAAAAAAAAT REVERSIBLE ROLES I'M SOLD I CAN;T WAIT

  2. I felt that somewhat Ishimatsu/Konno is canon since his true happy ending (I hope so) came to a halt. What do you think?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Welp, all I could think about that myth end 30 is that Ishimatsu killed Saiki's dad, detach himself from Saiki family clutch, move to Yonekura-san's (the grandmother one) house and eat oranges with Konno.

      That sounds like a crack ending, isn't it?

      We can hope that CAGE -ANOTHER- will bring this cliffhanger to an end, probably hmmmm more like two years in the future? Lol

  3. I downloaded the game "cage" but could not be opened on the computer. do not know why? Sadly ... T.T
    btw, may request walkthrough "Gakuen heaven 2 n galtia"? cz there are some missing CG ... hehehe :)
    thanks ...

    1. Both CAGE can't be opened? You can check if you download the latest ver by looking at the small gray bar above the screen at top left:

      http://41.media.tumblr.com/471d54cd2a0cd56ac087bcabdb396ec3/tumblr_nsht34fMvF1rvwpz5o1_500.png

      OPEN should be ver 1.30 and CLOSE should be ver 1.60

      If it shows an error like this:

      http://40.media.tumblr.com/16adc9b1a7abd5b69282448c9e6772c3/tumblr_nsgefhm9e31rvwpz5o1_500.png

      then you're missing an audio file. The file can be created by create a new text document, name it as "_setup", type down your file directory, also type down the name of the file that appear on the screen. Next, go to your OPEN/CLOSE folder, create a new folder and naming it as "se" or "bgm" (depends on your error) paste an audio file (.mp3 or .wav, depends on your error) and you're good to go.

      If you get an error when you clicked the application file, that means... I don't know. But I fixed that by playing the game directly from my hard disk.


      I'll play those games soon. Right now I just want to finish playing lists of doujin games in my hard disk.

    2. hey ...
      thanks above explanation, can fix the error ... now I can play it ... n was completed thanks to walktrought you tell.
      ok, I wait for the next update ...
      ciao ... :)

  4. Warning this is a rant skip this if you want to

    Seriously... I can't stand Asami. In OPEN I don't mind her but damn in CLOSE she's getting on my nerves. After all the shits Konno had to face for the sake of his family and yet she still act rudely around him, calling him a shitty brother and stuffs. Yeah I know that she didn't know anything but still... I've played ZERO and her reason for "disliking" her brother wasn't legit enough. There's a difference between 'tsundere' and 'jerkass'. When I was younger I did hate some of my older siblings but at least I don't say nasty stuffs to them.

    Shizuka too, yeah she's kind and sweet but she lacks some common sense sometimes. How could you assume that he's drunk when he doesn't reek of alcohol? Even Mayu could see through that. And if somebody was collapsed in front of the door there's more possibilities than just being drunk (he could be sick or something). And it's not normal if Konno's injuries keep piling every day yet she wasn't being suspicious of it.

    End of my rant. I'm sorry if I've offended anyone and this is just mere opinions of mine, doesn't mean that I'll be 100% correct so no need to take them seriously.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I haven't play ZERO yet. So we'll be playing in Asami point of view during the whole game thing?

      Asami's rude being is excused as "rebellious stage" is what I detest the most to be honest :/ like maybe you hate your brother? For what? For not providing what you want? Idk

      I think Shizuka did feel suspicious with Konno in one of the route I don't quite remember. But even if she did report to the police it'll bring to no good because Saiki will definitely kill all Konno's family members and thus leading us to Ishimatsu's route aha.

      In any way, CLOSE brings us to a very twisted, gray-oriented moral and I like that. Wish there were more games with this theme.

      Feel free to comment or ramble about your opinions! I'm all ears :D

      Delete
  5. Well yeah, ZERO is in Asami's POV but not through the whole game, but only during the day when Konno collapsed in front of his home.

    It's too short though, I finished it for like 5-10 mins and I felt it was totally wasted my time because nothing really important happened in it -_-;; Maybe the game was a fanservice for people who liked Asami. Damn, I wish there's a game with Mayu's POV because for Konno's sisters I love her the most.

    Would you mind if I spoil about the game? The only thing I could say (or spoil) about ZERO is, maybe it was there to tell us that Asami does care deeply for her brother. And that's all. Meh. I was expecting too much.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh? That's very short. I thought it'll elaborating on something else because it was recommended to play OPEN & CLOSE before ZERO. At the end it's just a short story of how Asami care to his brother? Ok then.

      Delete
    2. Urgh I do expect her to care about her brother, but it wasn't being explored enough in ZERO. I thought I would've liked Asami better after playing.

      Seriously I thought it will show the bond between Konno and Asami when she was little, as Konno mentioned in OPEN that Asami used to love him so much and was so clingy to him.

      But instead Asami mentioned that her brother was a hard worker, that she rarely got to see him in other times other than in the morning for breakfast. And since that they even hardly had any conversation for almost a year. From this, it's implying the reason for her bitterness towards Konno.

      In the evening, Asami and Shizuka went out for shopping and suddenly Shizuka forgot something. She rushed home and Asami waited for her in the streets. Asami then noticed that someone dressed in black in a white wagon watched her from afar. The man in black came out and approached her, saying that she's really resembling someone in appearance much to her confusion. He asked her if she had an older brother which she replied yes.

      Then the best part kicks in. Man in Black asked her, "Do you love your brother?". Instead of answering him, Asami was puzzled. He said again, "Because one day, you could've lost your brother. You won't be able to see him ever again."

      Asami didn't get what the hell he was talking. The Man in Black told her to don't tell anyone else about their meeting and left. Shizuka returned to her and they gone shopping altogether and gone home afterwards.

      It was getting late at night. Konno's family was worried sick that Konno still didn't came home at the late hour and everybody wondered if something happened to him. Asami acted as if she could give a damn and went straight to bed, trying to stay calm and believed that her brother will be back safely.

      Then it ended with Asami came to the belief that Konno passed out in front of the house because he was drunk. She said that she had always been hated winter, but the winter this year was the worst because she met a weird man saying weird things and her brother making her worried for him.

      And that's it. >:( Geez it has so many potentials, yet... *sigh*

      Delete
    3. I AM THOROUGHLY DISAPPOINTED. Like you said there're so many potentials but aaRGH ok probably they're keeping it simple and short just to show how Asami cares to Konno but not showing it directly :/

      Or, you know, instead of making ZERO how about some continuation of Ishimatsu's end 30 because I'm dying to know what's left in it (that's most likely to be a teaser for ANOTHER but geez)

      Delete
  6. ZERO actually came out before CLOSE, I afraid ^^;; Geez I hate waiting first I had to wait for Lucky Dog Bad Egg (the sequel to Lucky Dog 1, where Gian betrays the CR:5 and joins GD) and now ANOTHER??? Urgh. And Psychedelic supposed to come out this year, but still there's no news so far =_=

  8. WHAT KIND OF GOOD ENDINGS IT IS
    I can't see anything happy in those "good" endings x'D
    Is this one darker than the first one?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I know how you feel Dx CLOSE is very dark to be compared with OPEN as it focuses more on the management side a.k.a people who involved behind the CAGE.

      The changes in Konno is really.... disturbing as he's willingly to kill people without second thought (well because Saiki threaten to kill his family so yeah)

      There's this scene where he monologues about how things would have turned to be better if he has someone to share problems with CUE THE SEME IN OPEN AAAAAAA POOR KONNO
