That's what they all heard. All nine of them heard this through their helmets. Of course, Pandora was part of the group. One of the nine. She, too, heard those words; those words she spoke in order to fool all of them.
Unfortunately, your time is not infinite.
But what is her actual goal, here? Where everyone wants to kill Pandora, she wants to kill someone else. She wants to kill the traitor. It's a meticulous plan, all leading to these six deadly hours. It would be funny if it wasn't so morbid.
Should the allotted time expire, then...
Pandora is the mastermind. This isn't about finding her; this is about finding the traitor. There are no innocents here, only criminals. And you're one of them. Welcome to My Emptiness.
You will all surrender your right to live.
Solve puzzles and hack for information! As the mastermind of the death game, you have the ability to hack into other characters' helmets to see what they see and hear what they hear. Use that knowledge to keep ahead of the participants!
Use "TRUST" to radically change the story! By making different choices, you can change which characters you have built trust with, which will lead to different outcomes. Only by trying different things will you attain new story routes!
Mandatory autosaving: choices matter! Once you've made a choice for your save file, that choice is locked in. Be sure to weight your choices or else you may end up with outcomes you can't simply rewind out of! Thankfully, the game comes equipped with 24 file slots to let you retry over and over!
One flowchart to use with each new file! Equipped with a complex flowchart, you can change your choices on the fly in any new blank save file as long as all trust-changing options for a given choice have been previously done. You can think of it as one bigger puzzle where you change choices to access new routes and dive in at any unlocked point! YOU are in control of the flow.
The game remembers what you've done! While each save file is a separate route, the game takes into account all that you've done and remembers. Perhaps even, revisiting older saves at a later time may unlock additional content for that file...
Game is intended for Windows only. To avoid all graphical issues, make sure to keep the resolution in 16:9 format, windowed or full screen.
Be aware this is the second entry in the Abime Series. The first entry is Head AS Code and the third entry is yet to have a proper name, currently known under "Project Deforge".
I am fair... as long as you obey the rules.
Feel free to follow on Twitter or leave a comment below. If you wish to support me further, I now have a Patreon for funding. You can find a partial OST for Birth ME Code here as well.
I just remembered this game after I got the messages about claiming the updated version of Head AS Code, so I finally bought Birth ME Code too!
I used to hang out in your Discord years ago, but I quit Discord because I felt I was wasting too much time there (although nowadays I went back to wasting too much time on Reddit instead anyhows...) Maybe I'll check in again some day.
This might sound dumb but I'm completely lost about how to save or go back and redo my choices, they all remain the same and I don't know what to do. I got a dead end and now I'm stuck. Can you please help ?
If you enter a new file, you should be able to select your choices in the visual novel itself until you have selected all options that change TRUST values. From that point on, you will be able to select choices on the flowchart itself (this is to prevent people switching options but never seeing the event that happens after they pick an option). The help button on the flowchart explains how the flowchart works, hopefully it may be of further help!
I'm loving the game so far! The only problem is, the game won't let me select full screen. Every time I try, it glitches and won't let me click done to finalize the change. But besides that, the game is great.
If your screen is a bigger resolution than 1920x1080, it currently doesn't stretch to fit the screen properly. I might fix it in a future patch since I figured a way to do that, but since it'll require a good amount of recoding for other things, I might not be able to.
I will eventually update the demo with some more stuff in it, and the puzzle will most likely be slightly modified further. From testing with someone who plays a lot of puzzle games, this seemed decent difficulty to start things off.
Sorry, but it doesn't. Every synonym I can think of, of nothingness based on the idea of "increment" doesn't make a word/phrase in the box. I'm trying, but it's just not making sense to me. It's just a shame if there's no answer key since it cuts me off from the rest of the demo so soon.
