My friends were all abuzz with this “Mystic Messenger,” and I had no idea what it was. I thought it was an anime, but I was gravely mistaken. And my curiosity left me with way less social time and now I worry about cute boys that don’t exist.
This is my life now tho.
“Mystic Messenger” is an app that’s an immersive RPG by Cheritz. You get to pick from three eligible people on ‘original story’ mode, and two more options appear in ‘deep mode.’
The first three are Yoosung, Zen and Jaehee. Deep mode opens 707 and Jumin, though I hear there is a secret character you can get, but I’m not sure how.
You get the app, start the game, and you’re thrown into the RFA by a mysterious person called ‘Unknown.’ You answer text messages, emails and phone calls via pre-determined answers that shape the way the story turns out.
And you get a boyfriend (or girlfriend) to go with it, how about that?
You were looking for a game app just to kill some time and stumbled upon an app called “Mystic Messenger”.
It sounded interesting so you downloaded it.
Once you opened it, you found yourself chatting with someone nicknamed “Unknown”.
“Unknown” persuaded you to go to some studio apartment.
As soon as you walked into to the apartment, your app is suddenly connected to a mystic group chat with attractive guys!?
After a long chat, they ask you to join their secret party planning association called R.F.A…

It’s free to download and play, but you can make in-app purchases of hourglasses, which allow you to access conversations you missed, which will help you reach a higher percentile in your conversations for that day.
The conversations affect the story, how you respond affects the story, so on and so forth.
My first play-through I went with Yoosung’s route. You can pretty much pick which of the three routes you get in ‘original story’ mode by responding more positively to one person over the other people, which is what I did.
Yoosung is a college student that slacks off and plays LOLOL (I’m sure you can pretty much what the real-life equivalent of that is). He’s 20-21 (several conversations say 20, he’s said 21 at least once, so I’m a little confused), loves video games, is kinda lazy and is obsessed with the death of his cousin Rika (very important character), who was engaged to V, who hasn’t really spoken to or seen anyone in a year and a half.
he hasn’t seen much of anything lately…
that’s too spoiler-y, so I’ll be quiet about that now.
Anyway, in Yoosung’s route, he compares you to his cousin a lot since you take over her position in the game, and I spent half the game convincing him I wasn’t Rika’s replacement. He fights with V a lot over Rika’s death, but they make amends near the end of the play-through.
I convinced him, we started dating, he got taken hostage and went blind in one eye, but we ended up together and I received the normal ending for his route.
My friend says in her route with Yoosung he was convinced that he was a robot and got kidnapped…yeah her route with him sounded like it got a lot more crazy.
I’m playing Zen’s route right now, and Jaehee, the female option that’s available in ‘original story’ mode, is a huuuuge fangirl of Zen. She’s one of those overprotective ‘he can’t date’ type of fans. Of course, she’s concerned about his career, which is why you, MC should not date Zen.
But I, the person that I am, am trying to kindly (yet today and yesterday not so much) tell her to step the fuck off. Zen is MY *fictional* man, okay Jaehee, U THIRSTY ASS HO.
*ahem. Sorry about that. She get’s really annoying really quick on this route.
You can only immediately access conversations at certain times, but that’s what purchasing the hourglasses are for. While answering emails is important, it *technically* has no affect on the actual outcome of the game.
It’s really fun and unless you purchase extra time so you can skip waiting actual hours and days, game-play lasts 11 days.
