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
- Play through the Normal Ending at least once
- Play through Ryu’s Ending at least once
- 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

Is the mystery man from the intro’s identity revealed in the secret ending?
Hi minabeet, the mystery man will be revealed but not in the secret ending. 🙂

Hello. I want to unlock Ryus ending… I choce all of his choices, purchase the clothing and hand him the handkerchief and the night I choce him and still couldn’t unlock his ending …. I must do something else ?
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. 🙂
Will there be memory 1 and 2 of all four characters in Time of the Dead after acquiring their endings?
