The series of science adventure games is a collaboration between developers Nito+ and 5pb. The games play out similarly to modern visual novels but notably with the usage of the main character’s device casually known as a trigger. All games focus heavily on scientific methods and theories and 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 finally followed by Robotics;Notes in 2012. All games have been released and re-released on multiple platforms. The games also received numerous adaptations in manga, novels and anime. The most well known series, Steins;Gate, also received an original film set after the events of the anime.
Chaos;Child is expected to release in 2014 with the platforms being unannounced. In the mean time you can visit the game’s official website: http://chaoschild.jp/
