If you have a thing for anime, then it is likely that you also have an affinity for anime-related games. One of the most intense anime games on the market now is Mystic Messenger. According to those who play the game on a regular, it is the most intense hardcore game that involves texting hotties on the market. At the core, the concept of this game is about receiving and responding to text messages. This something that millennials should be very good at since all they do is text. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the game, here are 10 things that you should know.
1. The Chats You Participate In Control Your Experience
There are multiple experiences and each character has the ability to shape their experience through the chats that they choose to participate in. What is cool about this is that each person that plays will have somewhat of an exclusive and unique experience, based on how you choose to engage the game.
2. It Is Supposed to Be Played In Real Time
This is not like most mobile app games that you can play on your phone. With most games, they are designed to be played during your leisure while riding the bus or waiting for a class to start. However, Mystic Messenger is meant to be played in real time. You are supposed to respond to the message when it comes in.
3. Approximately 50 Percent Engagement
If you are getting concerned because you think that the game is going to take over your life, relax. IM’s will pop up at all times of the day and night, but you are not expected to respond to each and every message. In order to advance through the game, you will need to respond about 50 percent of the time.
4. The Game Splits After the Fourth Day
Each round or game on Mystic Messenger takes place throughout a 12-day cycle. The first four days will be the same for every player; however, after the fourth day, the game will split into multiple experiences or routes, and each of these experiences has the ability to produce multiple endings.
5. It Responds to Organic Engagement
When you first start playing the game, the more organic you are in how you respond to messages, the more your experience will fit you. Try to respond much in the same way you would normally respond. If it is a text that you would give immediate attention to in real life, do the same in the game. If you would normally ignore or postpone a response, do so.
6. You Have To Catch the Interest of Other Players
The way the game works is that your goal is to catch the attention of other players so that you can continue to advance through the game. If you fail to capture the attention of anyone by the end of day four, your game ends and you are not allowed to advance. So, proper and timely engagement is the key.
7. The Game Has Guides and Forums that Will Help Your Strategize
Whether you are a power player or you prefer a game of finesse, there are resources that you can tap into in order to increase your chance of ending up with a great ending. There are Mystic Messenger character guides and chat time schedules. As you can see, many of these players take this game seriously.
8. There Several Character Routes
Depending on the mode you choose, Casual, Deep story, or Another story, you get to choose the character route you choose to take. Try to choose a mode that best fits your natural personality. By doing so, your experience will be more organic and you will get more fun out of the game. There is definitely something to be said for authenticity.
9. The Stories are Multi-layered
The stories on Mystic Messenger are multi-layered. What this means is that you will experience the story depending on the route you choose. If you choose an easy route, the story will be superficial and shallow, but the more difficult routes create an entirely new world of excitement and intrigue.
10. Try the Narrative Sequence
When you play Mystic Messenger in the narrative sequence, you will have the ability to find out how each and every story turns out. You can start by entering in through the casual mode and playing Zen first and then slowly progress through all modes and routes. The game is engaging and you can actually learn a lot about yourself.
