Area-x Walkthrough

Area-X - A Time Traveling Otome Game 
A lot of the answers I found myself, but some I did find on Zeiva Inc's facebook and tumblr so I can't take all the credit!
I have also put together a guide for the missions in this game. It can be found here!

  1. Thank you so much for this! Been really frustrated with Rex's route.

    Ever heard of a game called Dandelion? Its in Korean with English subtitles. It starts off very silly but gets much more serious as you go. There is a stat management element which can be tricky but the story is fantastic and the art is gorgeous.

    1. Not a problem. Just glad it actually helps some people :D

      I've played the demo for it and I'm actually planning on buying the full version when I get some spare cash. It defiantly looks cute if nothing else :D

      Delete
    2. It's deceptively cute. Then blind-sides you with angst. All the usual character types are there and the game pokes fun at itself for using them. However all the behaviour is justified which is unusual and all the routes affect each other and you have to play them all to get the full story. About to go for my third playthrough. I must know what's going on! LOL I should be too old to be a fan girl.

      Delete
    3. Ah I don't think you can ever be to told to be a fan girl :3

      Ive managed to get the game for myself now and it's pretty interesting stuff. The varied personalities is nice - Something for everyone. But there seems to be a lot of typo's and whatnot. I even noticed one of the guys names get mixed up at one point. It makes it a little off-putting :/

      Delete
  2. Yeah, translation is off in places too. Still, it's MUCH better than some of the translations I've played for Japanese games. Voltage games on my android phone are my guilty pleasure... but the text is terrible. Still I think that may be part of the charm.

    1. Well I did say it was off-putting but it's still better than being in a lanuage I can't read xD
      Aww man, I feel like the only person who doesn't have an android phone (mines like 4 years old haha) but I'm looking into getting one. A lot of the VN's for android look pretty good.

  3. theres something i dont understand for getting to rexus path do i "stay home" or "look for belph"? cuz when i look for belph and click both robots in his mission nothing happens and im still in his(belph) path.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You should have an extra option that says "Investigate on my own" as well as 'Stay home' and 'Look for Belph', you want to pick the 'Investigate on my own'. For this option to show up you have to enter the password you got for completing all 4 previous endings into the continue then password option at the start menu.

      Delete
    2. oh so i have to complete the other characthers before going with rexus? um can u plz tell me the password?

      Delete
    3. Well you have to finish both Belph and Yuras' good and bad endings. I'm afraid I don't remember the password but the game has been out for a while now so maybe you can google it? Sorry I wasn't very useful :/

      Delete
    4. Even though I would suggest you played the other characters first (since it will help you understand more the story)
      Anyway for they sea route
      just enter "seamaris"

    1. Ugh, I tried looking in my game but it seems all my save data is gone >.<
      Anyway, if you're still around I managed to find the paper I wrote it on and for anyone else who hovers over this comment - OBVIOUS SPOILERS FOR SEA PATH PASSWORD so please don't complain!! I would still suggest playing all the endings though. Most of them are pretty good :)

      SEAMARIS (I believe it has to be all caps too)

      Delete
  5. Really confused with Yuras, it keeps telling me to enter a password on a chip-thing, and I don't know what it is. Then I automatically get the bad end, haven't even had the 5th mission yet, what do I need to do?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I always skipped the password for that but I heard from somewhere it's "BUSINESS". Sadly if you're getting that option is means your already pretty far into the bad ending.
      As for you getting the good ending, I'm unsure of what to suggest as I had major problems with getting the good ending for Yuras - lots of things can go wrong. Did you make sure to talk to Elder repeatedly until he spoke about 'beautiful woman' during chapter 3? Did you get the extra scene with him shortly after mission 3 during his path? The one in the cave where you have to make fire?

      Delete
    2. . . . I didn't search for signal in the field -.- and then didn't get the extra scene. Thanks for your help!

  6. Hello, I know you said you lost your data, but I was wondering if you knew the password for the sky path? If you did, that would be really helpful.

  8. This was EXTREMELY helpful! Thank you so much! I know I wouldn't of gotten through the game without it, it's way too easy to overlook something @.@ I really do hope you get around to doing Yuon's path, but you've done enough as is ^^

    If anyone is curious:
    Sea Path: SEAMARIS
    Sky Path: SKYDIVUM
    (you must enter them in either all caps or all lowercase- can't mix and match!)

  9. When it comes to Rexus-Yuon path it is really the same as Puppy path, but if you play X-Note and want some extra scenes with cute little Yuon, here you go:

  10. Is there a more detailed walkthrough of Yuras' path? I found it really difficult to get to the good ending for him. Does it matter whether I chose Middle Ages / Present?
    What are the codes "seamaris" and "skydivum" for? Are they just cheats?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Any of the answers before chapter 3 don't matter. You can go to either the middle ages or the present because you'll always get sent to the ice age anyway. Are you sure you followed the guide step by step because there are so many things that can go wrong with Yuras path? He was the most tricky for me because of all the extra things you had to do.

      The two codes are to open up the path to the next guys for people who don't want to play both the good and bad endings for each guy (Though personally I don't see why people wouldn't, both ends are great).

  11. Is Ferim in the Sky Path? I can't seem to go to his path.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yes, ferim is in the sky path. to be able to get onto his path you have to enter the sky path password, which can be gotten either by playing through every other guy's good/bad endings or by looking around this comments section.

    3. how do u get to ferims route, in chapter 3 there are 3 choices, look for belph, stay at home, investigate on your own. is there another choice added to be added there? or did i just missed something. i entered the pw for sky path, but how do you get to ferims route?

      what choice are you going to pick to get to him?

  13. Anyone knows how to get bonus scenes?? I don't mean the scenes you get when you go for the "good ending", I'm referring to the extra scene per each character at the end ... I dunno if I'm explaining myself. It's just I saw some videos at youtube and they were showing a Livan and Elcia's scene and they were talking about a dead bird ... Thanks for everything.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Each guys bonus scene is only available on the next tier path; Such as, to see Belph/Yuras bonus ending, you have to be on sea path but aim for one of the mentioned boys good endings. Evidently, you have to play through each guys good ending twice. I hope that's what you mean anyway. That's the only way to see bonus content that I know about at the moment.

      Delete
  14. I've been trying to get Belph's good ending, but I've had no luck! I've done every single thing you said to do in your walkthrough, but I still get the ending where we part ways and I never see him ever again. I've done it over and over, and I've only gotten the piano scene (where he plays me the piano) once! I've also never played his last mission. What could I be doing wrong? Is there any specific order you should play the characters in? Please help!

  17. Following your "Puppy" Rexus guide wound up getting me the Youn choice... I did it twice and followed it to a T! Also what on earth is the difference between the two routes? I'm looking at em and I don't see any choice differences...

    If the paths really are just the exact same minus some Youn scenes.. gotta wonder what the point to an extra route even is.. the ending kinda sucked. Maybe I'm just a sap, but.. I wanted a possible good ending rather than the "true" ending that this one hints to be.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well while I was writing the guide for Rexus path, I didn't once run into Yuon. I maybe could have helped if you weren't so vague about where you ran into him... Other than that, you're more than welcome to either wait for the official guide to be released or just try to figure it out yourself!

      As for your other complaint - I haven't got around to playing through the Yuon route but I would imagine it was only a few different scenes here and there. My guess to this is that Zeiva inc are catering to their fans from X-Note. Some prefered Anon, some liked Yuon. At the end of the day, visual novels are usually about choice and Zeiva adding this is a nice little touch in my opinion!

      Delete
  18. I'm stuck on Ferim's route? I'm not really sure at all. I typed in the password and everything, and talked to him when I was in Area X but after that, nothing else Ferim related happens

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Erm, I can't remember the exact wording but when you get the first choice with Ferim pick the option that's something like, 'Have we met before?' and then 'Investigate on my own' - That's how I got onto his path anyway.

      Delete
  19. Thanks for the guide Mina.

    Wrong place to post, but are you going to do a Dragon's Essence Guide when it's released? :3 Because I want to favorite this blog just in case for future reference xD

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well It's highly likely I'm going to get the game on release since I love Zeiva Inc games but I'd only write a guide for it if one isn't released with the game, such as it was with Area-X :)

  20. Thank you for the guide! It helps a ton!
    I just have one question, I'm going through and trying to Rexus' Puppy good end. I follow your guide and it seems I get on the route, since when I go back to the present in chapter three I get to talk to Anon (Puppy), but I'm so confused since there's a flashback to where Eclia asks Anon to find information for her. But I've never seen that scene....>.<;; I don't know what happening, I've followed all the steps you've shown and everything. On your path do your still tease Yuon with his keychain? Since it seems like that's where this extra scene would fit...
    Thank you :D

    1. :D I'm glad it's helping
      But concerning you're question I really don't know what to say. This isn't the first time I've had a complaint about Rexus Puppy path. I've even checked through it three times and every time it works fine for me. The only thing I can think of is to ask, did you make sure to go to McMirage and speak to ??? which is Puppy in chapter 1? That's the only defining way I've managed to work out that gets you on the right path where you ask for his help instead of seeing Yuon.
      I'm really sorry I can't be of more help but I really can't work out what's going wrong :/

      Delete
    2. I make sure to speak to everyone in each area :( maybe that's the problem, and I'm getting the trigger for Yuon's route? Ah well, I'll try again and if not I'll just role with it haha. I'm glad I'm at least actually getting on Anon's route, just missing that one scene :)
      Thank you for all your help~!

      Delete
  21. I did it!! I don't know why it worked this time round, but I made sure not to skip any scenes with Enter, but still picked the same choices. Maybe it's a bug? Oh well, off to go enjoy Anon/Puppy's route~
    Thanks for all your help and quick replies :3

  25. Idk if you know this, but there are bonus endings for Yuras and Belph (from what I discovered so far). Not the one where Yuras says "I wish.....[spoiler]" or when Belph says that it's the biggest lie. There's another one after that if you do their routes on the Sea Path. That is, if you get their good endings.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. After you completed the first mission, you should say to Ferim«Have I seen you in the past» or something like this, if you take the other choice and that you choose to investigate, you will be in Livan or Rexus's path dependant of what you do in chapter 2...

  29. Since Rexus is my fave character, I got depressed after seeing his "good ending" but once I got to see Ferim`s path I got a little happier with it although Ferim`s my second fave so I felt bad for him. Now that I`ve played all routes and got my passwords I can go replay for bonus chapters HueHue. :'D And I did it alll myself. C: Okay, your walkthroughs helped a lot. u___ u BUT..... I swear I didn`t look for passwords on the internet. >_ < The game`s just as amazing as X-Note. Though X-note is rather the game with better endings than this one but Area-X is just..... Elcia`s personality is outstanding, Essi is more of a not the one to trust others type. xDDDD Especially when it comes to Anon. C: Although my fave there was Yuon. >w < So I can say I ship ElciaRexus or ElciaFerim (Ferim so kyooooote!!!!) and EssiYuon. c: But...Other guys are cute too. qq <3

    I`m thinking of actually creating my own guide of these games. >_ <
