Time of the Dead Walkthrough

Time of the Dead is a mobile interactive otome game created by Lucydream and published by StoryTaco.Inc. The English version of the game was released on 31 May 2021. The game has a total of 6 endings – 1 normal ending, an ending each Gyeom, Bok, Yeob, Ryu and a hidden ending.

General Guide and Tips

  • There are several character’s endings that are harder and much more expensive to unlock. For example, Ryu and Yeob require more Gem options as compared to Gyeom.
  • In this game, there is no need to max your affection points for each character with the exception of Ryu.
  • The general guideline of difficulty to obtaining each character’s ending would be:

(From the easiest and cheapest to the hardest and most expensive)

Normal → Gyeom → Bok → Yeob → Ryu → Hidden Ending

Hidden Ending Requirements

  1. Play through the Normal Ending at least once
  2. Play through Ryu’s Ending at least once
  3. Obtain at least 80% of Ryu’s affection points + gift Embroidered Handkerchief to Ryu and Incense Pouch to Yeob at Map on the same playthrough before selecting your Ending
  • I suggest getting Items (220 Gems in total) first, followed by Outfits (1350 Gems in total), Choices and lastly Tickets (300 Gems for two tickets).
  • You can obtain character specific items, Gems and hints by going on Patrol. There is a low chance of obtaining Character specific items such as Incense Pouch in Patrols. Use wisely.
  • Increase a character’s affection for you by giving them items on Map. Note that each item can only be used once for each character per play through.
  • Paid Gem options, Night Events, Clothes will be brought over to the next playthrough
  • Swap your extra puzzle pieces for Gems! Each play through should give you enough puzzle pieces to swap for 30 Gems in [Off the record].
  • Each play through will net you at least 135 Gems. (20 Episodes (5 Gems by watching a full ad after each episode) + 30 Gems swap)
  • Total amount of Gems required to:
    • Purchase all clothes: 1,350 Gems
    • Purchase all story items: 220 Gems
    • Select all choices: 3800 Gems
    • Purchase tickets to view Night events: 1,200 Gems
  • Total Gems needed to unlock the story content: 6570 Gems

    1. Hello! Have you read the normal ending at least once and read the other endings as well? If you did, and have at least 95% for Ryu, his ending will definitely unlock. 🙂
