Nakanishi is fresh out of reform school and stuck at a dead-end job with an abusive boss. But when an internet friend tells him about a game called Duds Hunt, he soon becomes deeply involved in a new life full of excitement and violence. Reaping thousands of yen from the misfortunes of others, Nakanishi comes to love Duds Hunt – but where does it end?
In Duds Hunt and Darwin's Game, both of the protagonists enter a game by the referal of a friend; a game of life or death, of kill or be killed, a game of money and the ability to become wealthy by sacrificing morality. Psychological warfare, the need to adapt and survive, the sheer will and determination to tell death "Not today", the two mains will have to use everything and then some to make it through each day they participate in the game.
A game that seems innocent at first turns into a deadly game of life or death. Initial appearances quickly give way to fear and panic as the clock ticks down and the protagonists are forced to adapt or succumb to the cold hands of the game. As the blood flows, the world outside the games try to find out just what the hell is going on and who or what is the cause behind it all. It's a mystery that needs to be solved but offers a balance between both worlds.
Students enter a game out of their own freewill, not truly knowing what they're getting into once they're inside. But in there, it's a game of death, survival and blood. Sacrifices have to be made in order to survive and not everyone can be trusted. Violence will ensue as the body count rises, minds will waver, morals will collapse, bonds will form and break while a twisted game begins, formed in the guise of an online game (Darwin's Game) and multiple children's games (Kamisama no Iutoori Ni). Thrills and suspense, action and mystery, blood and cruelty and a game where your life is at stake.
Underestimating the game, two men are thrown in over their heads in a violent game of life or death with a grand prize at the end. Psychological warfare and the need to adapt or die, thrills and spills as the stakes rise, the game takes it's toll and they have to make sure they wouldn't have to pay it.
