Steins;Gate is a sci-fi visual novel and the second game in the Science-Adventure series, following Chaos;Head. The game later spawned several sequels, as well as a manga and anime series. Players make their choices by either selecting to answer or ignore phone calls and text messages, as well as selecting the reply. The outcome of these choices change the direction of the story.
Taking place in the summer of 2010 in Akihabara, Tokyo, Rintaro Okabe, who also goes by the pseudonym Kyouma Hououin, is a self-declared mad scientist who, among his friends, has accidentally created a time machine out of a microwave oven. By sending text messages into the past, he is able to alter the present and future. Yet the Butterfly Effect from these changes may create a horrible outcome for not only Okabe and his friends, but the fate of the world.
Steins;Gate received outstanding reviews with an average score of 88%, praised for its engaging story, colorful characters, voice acting, and attention to detail within the scenario.
Like just about any visual novel, the Platinum doesn’t require any skill – only time, and some strategic saves. Unlike other visual novels however, the different choices not clear-cut selections. Rather, they involve sending and receiving texts and phone calls at certain moments in the game. This means, if you are text-skipping, there’s a good chance you might skip through where you need to make a decision.
Expect anywhere between 5 to 45 hours for the Platinum, depending on how much text skipping you do.
NOTE: The trophies on the PS3 have a separate list from those on the PS Vita.
If you wish to get the Platinum in the least amount of time, we recommend following one of the walkthroughs under our Links tab, that will state not only when and which texts and phone calls to make, but also where to place some strategic save points you can fall back on.
There are trophies for reaching each of the multiple endings throughout the story. In addition, there are a few miscellaneous trophies for collecting all the CG images, receiving certain ring and wallpapers for your phone, and all 13 RaiNet episode summaries. You can either check out the Steins;Gate trophy guide links under our Links tab for specific details on these, or simply follow one of the walkthroughs, which will include methods for collecting these as well.
Be wary of text-skipping, particularly involving the miscellaneous trophies. Occasionally there may be a moment when you need to receive a reply to an email that’s linked to acquiring a phone ringtone or RaiNet episode summary. However, if you text skip through that moment, you could lose your chance and miss the reply.
If you’re simply reading the story like the game intended without text-skipping, then of course you have nothing to worry about.
Finally it should be noted that the Prologue does not contain any choices. So if you’re still keen on text-skipping, feel free to skip through the entire Prologue. Decisions will need to be made in Chapter 1.
