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.
