1Basic Gameplay Information and Tips

① Find an Emergency Backpack!

You'll want to first acquire an emergency backpack after encountering the earthquake. Equipping the backpack will give you the ability to use items. As you progress, you'll be able to acquire a backpack with more storage space.

② Watch Your LIFE Gauge!

If your LIFE gauge hits 0, it's Game Over! Use recovery items to ensure you stay alive.

③ Brace Yourself!

If an aftershock occurs, don't panic and use the Brace function. By bracing yourself, you can progress without falling over.

④ Locate a Save Point!

You'll come across save points while exploring the city. When you find one, save your progress, and even use the Rest option to remove your current STRESS level. Make sure to stop by one if you see one!

⑤ Uncertain? Consult the Map!

When you open the map, your current location and map layout will be displayed.
The map will be filled with information by exploring the city, talking with citizens, and investigating points of interest. Additional information, such as your next objective and which places you should revisit at a later time, will also be made available. When you're not sure what to do or where to go, try opening up the map.

⑥ Your Choices Define You!

You'll often find yourself in situations where you must choose how you want to respond in a conversation. Some of these situations will require choosing what you think or how you feel. There are no right or wrong answers in this game. The only suggested play styles are choosing to answer how you would personally respond, or venturing outside your comfort zone. There are many options to choose from as listed in the below example screenshot.
Again, there are no right or wrong answers. The choice is entirely up to you.
