MyDearest released brand-new gameplay footage of Dyschronia: Chronos Alternate providing an extended look into the Trial Section.
In the Trial Section, protagonist Hal Scion uses his time manipulation powers called “Memory Dive” to reenact crime scenes. Players use the information gathered to solve murders and crimes found within Dyschronia: Chronos Alternate. The powerful AI Justicius, who oversees all the goings on in Astrum Close City, will witness the reenactment and players will receive a percentage of accuracy based on their “performance.”
“When we started working on the trials in VR we had to change our way of thinking,” describes Ao Matsuoka, Director & Main Scenario Writer for Dyschronia. “In VR, there is an emphasis on the physical sense, the traditional text-based gameplay of selecting commands was less rewarding than we had imagined. That’s why, during these crime scene reconstructions, the player enters the perspective of the criminal, stands at the crime scene in a virtual space, and recreates the sequence of events by actually taking action.”
