''[=Ever17=]'', the second game in the ''VisualNovel/{{Infinity}}'' series, is a VisualNovel made by the now-sorta-defunct studio KID (while bankrupt, key members of the company went to three other companies: Cyberfront, 5pb., and Regista), and was one of the first non-erotic visual novels to be officially translated into English (by a company called Hirameki International, now ''completely'' defunct). It tells the story of six (or is it five? Or seven?) young people who are trapped in an underwater theme park called [=LeMU=] when it unexpectedly springs a leak. They then have 119 hours to find a way to escape before the place implodes and they all die. It's a little like ''The Poseidon Adventure'', if ''The Poseidon Adventure'' were set in the future and had sinister German pharmaceutical companies and some interesting uses of quantum physics. [[{{Dissimile}} So not much like it at all, really.]]

* WhatIfTheBabyIsLikeMe: [[spoiler:Tsugumi is worried that her children might be Cure species,

to:

* WhatIfTheBabyIsLikeMe: [[spoiler:Tsugumi is worried that her children might be Cure species,species, and won't be able to grow up like normal children. Luckily, her children end up as [[HalfHumanHybrid Sapiens/Cure hybrids]] who grow up normally, and are immune to the effects of the Cure virus.]]
* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: Sora's route revolves around this.
* WhatYearIsThis: The Kid asks Takeshi this since he can't remember a thing. Takeshi seems to not know either and has to rely on his admission ticket. [[spoiler:Of course, when you're playing as the Kid, "Takeshi" (also known as the "original" Kid) lies to you, which is just the beginning of setting up the enormous MindScrew that is [=Ever17=].]]
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: [[spoiler:Tsugumi wangsts about being immortal, but Takeshi thinks that life is its own reward, even if he gets momentarily rattled by her grief. This is the fundamental root of the conflict between them: To her, life has been nothing but suffering. To Takeshi, it doesn't matter if you suffer so long as you're alive.]]
* WritersCannotDoMath: In this case, a translation problem. There are 17 meters between each level, but America doesn't really use the metric system. So they converted it to feet. The only problem is that there are about 3.3 feet in a meter and not just three. So not only do you lose another reference to 17, the conversions aren't done properly in some places.
* YamatoNadeshiko: Sora, {{Justified|Trope}} as that's her programming as a park employee AI. [[spoiler:However, it's subverted at one point in her route after she sees Takeshi and Tsugumi having sex, where she briefly goes {{Yandere}} out of confusion.]]
* YouAlreadyChangedThePast: Found out [[TemporalParadox the hard way]].
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Coco's is pink. Everyone else's is a reasonable color.
* YourDaysAreNumbered
** It's at least possible for every human to escape from park before it collapses, but Sora is stored inside the computer. She can't escape and while there are copies of her in the primary computer on the mainland, they aren't her.
** Four years ago [[spoiler:from the standpoint of 2017, You]] was diagnosed with [[spoiler:a non genetic heart condition and was told she'd be lucky to make it to graduation.]] That said [[spoiler:while Tief Blau was a disaster for the world that claimed tens of thousands of lives, it led to her contracting Cure, which repaired her heart.]]
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Sora, who is 6. Justified in that she's an AI, and her age is given as eternally 24.

----
!! The Xbox 360 remake provides examples of:

* AcheyScars: In the remake, [[spoiler:Hokuto has a knife scar across his arm that Sara gave him during their {{Tykebomb}} training that Leiblich forced them through]]. Whenever he has a dream about his past or tries to remember it, the scar aches.
* BigBrotherMentor: Takeshi to the Kid. This was slightly present in the original, but really taken to its fullest in the remake.
* BittersweetEnding: The remake changes [[spoiler:Sora's Route]] from a DownerEnding to this. [[spoiler: While Takeshi and Sora still die, instead of futilely copy Sora onto a terabyte disk that won't make it out of [=LeMU=], Takeshi instead uploads a program that makes a copy of Sora and wirelessly sends it to the successor LEMMIH computer, meaning that she'll still live on through that computer.]]
* ChekhovsGun: [[spoiler:A "Lemurian Tablet" is in the remake, a mysterious tablet supposedly from Lemuria that has strange hieroglyphics on it that no one can read, and has Coco's drawing on it. As it turns out, the Lemurian Tablet was created by Blick Winkel (via possession of another person from long ago), and the mysterious hieroglyphics have the details of Third Eye Project written on it.]]
* ChekhovsGunman: [[spoiler:Pipi, who is this version actually contains a quantum computer created by Yoichi Tanaka. When Sora's data is backed up, it backs up into Pipi, and Sora essentially becomes Pipi for the next 11 years until her android body is developed.]]
* EnhancedRemake: Contains an additional route [[spoiler:(the Blick Winkel Route, an epilogue of sorts that shows some of the events between 2017 and 2034)]], rewritten story (the main plot and major events are mostly the same, but a lot of the events in-between are completely different), complete background graphics, additional [=CGs=], character conversion from 2D to 3D, remixed soundtrack, and re-recorded voices.
* FixFic: [[spoiler:Essentially the second half of the Blick Winkel Route, where Blick Winkel uses his powers to fix the Bad Endings and give every route a happy ending.]]
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: [[spoiler:Kaburaki's amnesia, which was caused by an incident in 2029 where an experiment on space-time oscillation device designed to create an artificial black hole went wrong. Kaburaki had to manually shut it off, but the effects of the black hole briefly sent his 2029 self's consciousness to his 2017 self. The overload of memories caused 2017's Kaburaki's amnesia, but left him with a few fragments of 2029 Kaburaki's memories, which was the source of his "premonitions".]]
* MemoryGambit: [[spoiler:In this version, Hokuto was also one of the members of the Third Eye Project, due to his compatibility with Blick Winkel, and therefore had known he was going to lose his memory ahead of time]].
* PsychicPowers: In addition to Coco's from the original, it's revealed [[spoiler:at the end of her route that Kaburaki is a low-level psychic. Furthermore, Professor Yagami in this version was actually researching these powers and their connection to the Third Eye.]]
* SchrodingersCast: [[spoiler:In the original, Professor Yagami's fate was never revealed, leaving it unknown what happened to him after Tief Blau broke out. Here, he managed to escape from [=LeMU=], made a miraculous recovery from TB, and became a major supporter of the Third Eye Project.]]
* StableTimeLoop: [[spoiler:A variation from the original- in the remake, Blick Winkel can only talk to other people when he's in possession of Takeshi or Hokuto (or if they have the Third Perspective, like the former two and Coco), and can't talk to anyone else. As a result, he can't directly tell You"haru" the Third Eye Project. As a result, he goes back in time and creates the "Lemurian Tablet", writing down all the details of the Third Eye Project.]]
* StepfordSmiler: [[spoiler:Sara, who was a subversion in the original, has it played straight in this version, though she still has moments of genuine happiness.]]
* {{Tykebomb}}: In this version, [[spoiler:Hokuto and Sara were trained to be agents of Leiblich, teaching them how to use weapons and various other things. However, Hokuto was removed from training when he was 11 after he protected Sara from a bomb she accidentally set off, injuring him badly. This allowed You"haru" to use her influence to get him out of there.]]
* VocalEvolution: [[spoiler:In the original game, Creator/SoichiroHoshi had two distinct voices: his "Takeshi" voice (which he uses for Takeshi and adult Kaburaki) and his "Kid" voice (which he uses for kid Kaburaki and Hokuto). By the Xbox 360 remake, he's developed a distinct voice for all four (his adult Kaburaki and Hokuto voices are similar to their original types, but slightly different).]]

''[=Ever17=]'', the second game in the ''Infinity'' series, is a VisualNovel made by the now-sorta-defunct studio KID (while bankrupt, key members of the company split off into three companies: Cyberfront, 5pb., and Regista), and is one of the very few visual novels to be officially translated into English (by a company called Hirameki International, now ''completely'' defunct). It tells the story of six (or is it five? Or seven?) young people who are trapped in an underwater theme park called [=LeMU=] when it unexpectedly springs a leak. They then have 119 hours to find a way to escape before the place implodes and they all die. It's a little like ''The Poseidon Adventure'', if ''The Poseidon Adventure'' were set in the future and had sinister German pharmaceutical companies and some interesting uses of quantum physics. [[{{Dissimile}} So not much like it at all, really.]]
