You play as a boy named Nanashi adventuring to find friends. It's a story-oriented game with a focus on befriending people around town. There will also be parts which is quite like the anime and game Danganronpa, and the game Ace Attorney.
Note: There is now an option to enable extra hints in the Talking Times that will specify the correct topic to present.
You’re prompted to choose a “difficulty” upon starting the game, and can change it from the note on the desk in BitWorld.
This is Miwasiba's 5th game.
This game has many triggering content, such as
one friend event with offscreen animal death,
one friend event with threats of self-harm,
one friend event with an optional horror segment with some jumpscares,
They will be added to your Friend List in BitWorld upon befriending them in the plot.
However, you can still give then presents during Free Time, as long as they're around.
Getting them to 100 fondness points gets you a single Friend Event and their Friend Item.
These friends can only be befriended during Free Time at the end of a chapter.
They have four Friend Events, one every 25 fondness points.
The final event at 100 points will both add them to your Friend List and give you their Friend Item.
Note: The Friend List bios come with bonus Mutter logs if you press Confirm (Z/Enter/Space).
Also note the difference between Friend Items in the ITEM menu and the Friend List in BitWorld.
The number of friends Nanashi has at the end will affect the ending.
(Regarding requirements: Even the best ending will require only a little over half of the total.)
You'll be free to ignore friend-making entirely until the last Free Time with no consequences.
In fact, making no friends until the end will be the easiest way to see every ending.
Each person has three "favorite" presents, which result in unique messages when you give them.
Two of the favorite presents will add 15 fondness points, and one of them adds 20. All other presents add 5.
s mark the gift which is most cost-effective for each person. (Some have two equivalent ones.)
As you can see, Umai?bos are OP, as you get 15 points : 10 bits for people who like them.
A * on the person's name means their "best" favorite item has a ratio worse or equal to 1 point : 2 bits.
You can get 1:2 with Umai?bos even if they're not a favorite. Thus, Umai?bos are best for them.
Note: Since you can get Mikado anything, he will have a * but it will be like (*) because it depends on what you give him that has a ratio worse, equal, or more. Everything you give him equals 5 points.
Some friend events that have yes/no questions will give you a bonus 5 points for picking the "right" option.
Which I won't bother making a guide for. In general, if there's an "honest" option, that one's better.
Is on the bench on the right side of Honey Garden. Yes, only his legs are visible.
Misato's third event:
If you agree to her request, you'll be sent to a brief horror-esque segment.
Saying no will skip it with no penalty, other than not getting a 500-bit reward.
Each room has part of a message. Put together, it's "NEXT TO THE GIRL."
Examine the wall just to the right of the girl painting in the hall to find the way out.
Appears in the Backstreet only after befriending Ryuuri.
Kirara's third event and Mutter:
Is not "untranslated." It's supposed to be incomprehensible symbols; that's the joke.
Umai?bo is a reference to the snack Umaibo, originally “Umainokabo” (“umai no ka” being a question, “is it tasty?”, as opposed to simply “Tasty Stick”). Ao Haru Road is a reference to Ao Haru Ride. SEVEN PEACE is a reference to One Piece, arguably with some Dragonball. BEAUTY IS PORK is a reference to BUMP OF CHICKEN - the all caps English name, the two-letter middle word, the animal food. (And B-Pork is not meant to be a Bjork reference - it was “Bippo” in Japanese). Tummy Tummy Ache (“Pomu Pomu Pain,” which refers to stomach aches) is an allusion to Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. Tummy Tummy Ache, or Mary will be a possible friend in the game in Chapter 4. Larikkuma’s name is a reference to Rilakkuma (whose name is a portmanteau of “relax” and “bear”), but the rest is clearly a reference to Dangan Ronpa’s Monokuma.
