◆ Tips

Real Objects

“Real Objects” are objects that exist in reality that Shina and company find in the game world, where they should not naturally exist. What are the meaning of these objects? By getting information from the objects you acquire, you will explore new mysteries, but even more mysteries and incidents will await beyond that.

A diary found in the game “World’s Odyssey,” which has been infested with bugs. The writing inside is of a frightening state, and a Japanese address is listed in the corner.

◆ Glitch Style

Take a Risk, Get Stronger by Cheating

Death end re;Quest

When a character touches a field bug, or when they are hit by the enemy’s attacks, they will gradually be contaminated by bugs.

A character’s amount of bug contamination is represented as the “Contamination Level,” and as it rises, the character’s stats will gradually go mad.

And if a character’s Contamination Level reaches its maximum value, they will transform into their “Glitch Style,” which gives them cheat-class abilities. But this ability is a double-edged sword, as going beyond the maximum value makes them unable to act. This is also not a standard inability to act, as it adds a minus effect upon the character’s return to their normal state.

With the Glitch Style, you can acquire super powerful abilities, but it also comes with the burden of being a major risk on the character’s life.
