Okabe Rintarou is known for being the hero and peacekeeper of Akihabara, Alpacaman. Using the Dmails and a Time Slip Machine, he can solve cases with little trouble. A woman by the name of Shiina Mayuri, tailored his Alpacaman suit and she happens to be the only person to know his true identity. Okabe Rintarou spends his days suited up in the Alpacaman suit while solving various cases that occur around Akihabara.


One morning, as Okabe was sleeping in his lab after a hard fought battle, Makise Kurisu appeared out of nowhere. Surprised by the unexpected visit, Okabe was even more surprised upon hearing what she had to say.

"A Strange Building Filled of Love"

Yuugo Tennouji, a.k.a. Mr. Brown, has been thinking a lot about Nae, his beloved daughter. He’s been wondering if she’s truly happy living the way she has been, back and forth from home and the CRT TV Workshop at the Oohiyama Building. He asked himself if it’s the right thing to do and whether Nae can live a fulfilled life this way.


One day, Tennouji happened to win the 1st prize of a lottery, winning 300 million yen. As the landlord of the Oohiyama Building, the first thing he did was to reconstruct it with his new funds, with a better life for Nae in mind.


After a year of construction, the building was finally completed, yet Nae seemed more depressed than ever. Tennouji felt lost and confused, as he began to regret reconstructing Oohiyama Building. This is when Okabe Rintarou suggests him to restart, using D-mail.


How can Tennouji make Nae happy, and what exactly has been making her feel depressed?


Steins;Gate: Linear Bounded Phenogram is slated to be released on April 25th, 2013.

    is this a direct sequel for the original game? Or is it just a spin-off?

    • ninjabart122

      Feels like a re-imagining of Steins;Gate + Spin-Off.

    • Aoshi00

      Sounds kinda like a spinoff, I hope it’s more interesting than Hiyoku Renri no Darling.. the 8-bit PC game was a direct sequel too but very short and mediocre, and the interface was very cumbersome I heard.. They’ve be milking S;G too much.. I want them to have more new illustration instead of re-using the same pictures from the first game..

    Okarin is hero now? Where is Hououin Kyouma….

  • Himiko

    I thought it was Mr.Braun…

  • MediaMindControl

    Miiiiiiiistaaaaa Braun. @Himiko I think this is a different river, his name can change slightly if need be.

    anyway I was always under impression that it was supposed to be what the romaji depicted…. Braun or BRAWN, because he is so physically built, and looks like the paper towel bauny guy or whatever. So i get what you are getting at.
