Anonymous;Code Shares New Info About Main Characters and Game System


MAGES released the information about the characters that will be appearing in the latest title of the science adventure game, Anonymous;Code, which will release in Japan on July 28 for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. Details about the in-game systems were also shared.

Anonymous;Code takes place in 2037. The protagonist, a hacker named Pollon Takaoka, has an ability that allows him to save and load moments, much like save features in video games. In the year 2036, the “2036 Problem” occurs, where an incident involving computers leads to the destruction of major cities around the world.

A similar event is expected to take place in 2038, so a supercomputer called Gaia is used to create an alternate Earth using an Earth Simulator in order to study the possible effects of the impending catastrophe.

Hack Triggers Instead of Choices!

In Anonymous;Code, the scenario branches by “hacking triggers” instead of doing multiple-choice events. At certain points in the game, the player can suggest when to use Takaoka’s “Save & Load” application.

The decision to perform a save and load is left to Takaoka, and will only be performed if he agrees to do it. The player can suggest the best timing and have the Save & Load executed, helping Takaoka make the decision. This cooperative relationship between the player and Takaoka is the key to moving the story forward.

■ Takaoka’s Mysterious App

The “Save & Load” app that Takaoka has allows you to save the “present” and then load that data to “go back in time”. Although Takaoka is usually in control of the “Save & Load” app, players can also use the data slots and save points that Takaoka can use.

Upon making your choice, the “Manga Trigger” is triggered here. This has intense action scenes and difficult explanations shown in a fast-paced, easy-to-understand manner by following the frames of a comic strip. It also expresses the divergent results of hacking triggers.

An example of such diversion can be seen below. The first image is before the Manga Trigger, and the second is after reloading the save once.
