Steins;Gate is part of a series of “Scientific Adventure” games that occur in a singular universe, the others beingChaos;Head and Robotics;Notes. The games are a collaboration between developers Nitroplus and 5pb. They play out similarly to modern visual novels but are notably saturated with the usage of the main character’s gaming device, casually known as a trigger. All games focus heavily on scientific methods and theories which are incorporated into the game. The first game in the series was Chaos;Head, which released in 2008 for the PC. The next game, Steins;Gate released in 2009 and the final game was Robotics;Notes in 2012. Steins;Gate originally was released on the Xbox 360 before being ported to the PC, and all current generations, at the time, of consoles in Japan. An anime adaptation of the game was produced in 2011 that was directed by Hiroshi Hamasaki (Terraformars, Blade & Soul) and Takuya Satou (Selector Infected Wixoss,Ichigo Mashimaro) and produced by White Fox (Katanagatari, Jormungand). A sequel film to the anime was produced in 2013 and featured an original story. A sequel light novel titled Steins;Gate The Committee of Antimatter was planned to be released in 2014, but was cancelled within a month of release.
