Steins;Gate 5pb. / Nitroplus, JAST USA 2010

This second game in the Science Adventure series follows Chaos;Head and was succeeded by Robotics;Notes. The game was first on XBox360 in 2009 then ported to Windows and an English PC version came out in 2014. It's been adapted into many other properties including a manga, anime, movie and other products. The story takes place in Akihabara and is about a group of friends who have customized their microwave into a device that can send text messages to the past. As they perform different experiments, an organization named SERN who has been doing their own research on time travel tracks them down and now the characters have to find a way to avoid being captured by them. Gameplay requires little interaction from the player as most of the duration of the game is spent on reading the text that appears on the screen which represents either the dialogue between the various characters or the thoughts of the protagonist. Like many other visual novels, there are specific points where the user is given a choice to affect the direction of the game. It presents the user with the "phone trigger" system which is similar to the "delusional trigger" system that was introduced in Chaos;Head. When the player receives a phone call from somebody, the player can choose to answer or ignore the call. Incoming text messages will have specific words underlined and highlighted in blue, much like a hyperlink on a browser, where the player can select on to reply to the text message. Most phone calls or text messages do not have to be responded to though there are certain points in the game where the player is required to take action. Depending on the player's choices on how to respond to these phone calls and text messages, the plot will progress in a specific direction. It has over 30 hours of story with multiple paths and six endings. In Feb 19/2019, Steins;Gate Elite, a remastered, ultimate version that features newly animated sequences for certain endings, was released.
