Guide for Succumate – Full completion guide
Succumate completion guide
Succumate is a straight-forward game; if you like it and haven’t played Summer Memories yet, you should finish this first then that; if you’ve played Summer Memories already, this game may be disappointing you since it is a much earlier work. The cutscenes with the main heroine are pretty charming, though, so it’s worth playing to the end.
Basic controls: Press shift to run, press x to teleport. Teleporting is important since time passes regardless of whether or not you are moving.
In general: you only die from losing vitality. Losing hunger makes you slow; getting a cold makes you recover stats slower. You can’t lose vitality unless you give it to Lilim or one of your neighbors.
The simple gameplay loop gets money from playing the guitar until “You’re holding a concert for animals!” you receive bursts of 200 for using the arrow keys. Still, no additional money after all 4 animals appear, for a net total of 1500+ 200 x every arrow key prompt press. The best use of your time is to stop right after the 4th animal appears and restart. After the 4th animal appears, you can still get increments of 200, but it takes a long time, and you won’t receive any more of the main money.
Talk to Kagami around 5-6 am or 10 pm to access the gym 10 am-8 pm (open every day but Monday), upgrade your sleep and vitality meters only. Sleep is 100% restored every six hours so go crazy; vitality has much higher rewards if more of it is used at once, be it for videos with your neighbors or meet your energy requirements with Lilim. The videos can be sold to the black-haired businessman neighbor in 102 for massive amounts of money.
There are several side characters in this game, much like Summer Memories, but some do not have scenes with the player. There are only really 3 characters that have a questline: Kagami, Satou, and Nanjou.
All three side characters in Succumate have an affection system set on increments of 20 and must be maxed out “Affection Maxed!” to progress their storyline. Coffee guarantees 1 affection, crystal ball from the doctor guarantees 5, and the gacha from the machine next to the convenience store is 3. If you’re stuck with a side character, try giving them more items.
The blonde teacher, the doctor, the male convenience worker’s twin sister, and the woman Nanjou’s husband is having an affair with do not require affection progression. The blonde teacher has an unlockable that isn’t with the main character, and the others do not have scenes. The doctor is in one of the endings.
Make sure you have maxed out the affection of a character before assuming you’re stuck.
Satou (Convenience store clerk with brown/gray ponytail, lives in 201)
She wears a jacket in the street.
Her affection counter’s display seems to be bugged; it’s in increments of 20 per event but won’t tell you how much each item earns; they still count, so keep giving her stuff until you see Affection Maxed!
She leaves her house every morning at 7 to go to work. After reaching 20 affection, her dialogue will change; after reaching 40, she will mention earthquakes’ fear.
Returning to your apartment will have an earthquake happen and a hole opens up.
Satou will be watching you from the hole every night after work and before 5 am.
Every night from 8 pm to 5 am, you will receive a message in the textbox saying, “You feel you are being watched” you have to be with Lilim during this time, and after maxing out her affection, you can finish this questline.
Kagami (Gym instructor with red hair, wears jogging clothes)
DojinOtome seems to love this character since she’s repeated in another game.
She runs from 5 am to 6 am, as well as 10 pm. She may not show up on Mondays when the gym is closed.
After talking, using the gym, and leveling affection, she mentions a home gym service.
Go to your apartment. The service is in the apartment action menu under Phone available only during 10 am-8 pm (No Mondays), then continue leveling and use it again but choose massage instead of a home workout.
Yoshikawa (Blonde teacher, lives in 203)
Blonde, white dress.
She doesn’t have any scenes with the player.
Talk to both her and her student(an MC from a previous game) as much as possible; they don’t require gifts. She appears briefly at 6-7 am and returns 4-5 pm. The student comes in the same time frame right after her.
At 5 PM, you can talk to the student to progress the quest. Talk to them both again the next day.
At 6 PM on a different day, you can go to the window of room 203 to finish her questline, and that is the entirety of the content for Yoshikawa.
Nanjou (Downstairs purple-haired wife in 101)
Glasses-wearing lady, yellow shirt.
Talk with her at 7 AM to begin her questline.
Please don’t buy any of her items; give her gifts as normal.
Once you reach the 3rd set of affection, you will see a scene outside of her window from 11 am-1 pm. Talk to her after. She will ask you to follow her husband; he will be at the trash can at 3 AM.
This isn’t time-sensitive; the husband will be there every day at 3 AM until you interact with him.
Max out affection, and there will be the same scene outside of her window at 11 am-1 pm.
Her husband will be with a woman with blonde curly hair. The blonde curly-haired woman doesn’t appear again and has no scenes.
One-shot characters(Lilim unlocks)
Some characters have only one scene, or they give you some reward-related to Lilim. Here are their locations and requirements:
Businessman neighbor in 102: (Midnight/4 am)
This guy wanders a bit but is available by knocking on his door after midnight and before 5 am. You can make home videos with most of your neighbors, but not Lilim, and sell them to the businessman by knocking on his door before the Radio guy appears in the early morning. He walks around town at Midnight in front of the Convenience store.
He’ll give you a camera if you catch him around town making videos; I can’t remember what time he does this, unfortunately. But you’ll definitely see him out and about filming, talk to him and he’ll give you the camera and 3 sets of the film. Holding Z during the filming minigame will net you more money, but the home videos with your neighbors will net 13-15k instead of the paltry 3k from the minigame.
1 set of siblings from the convenience store, another set of a young couple (Varied times)
These characters don’t interact with the main character. During certain days the siblings will have altered shifts, and you can find them behind the convenience store and make a video of them for the Businessman. The young couple will appear in the wooded thicket to the left of your apartment stairs; the same deal with the video. The times are varied, but you can see the events whenever the thicket or convenience store’s entrances have symbols appearing over them.
You can encounter the siblings but not the young couple out on the street; they have dialogue that doesn’t advance the plot but does give a hint on days they will be around.
Fidget spinner: (10am-8pm)
There are some chairs in front of the cafe that will have a video game twinkle; interact with it to meet fidget spinner boy. He doubles whatever you output in vitality to Lilim(the only lilim, doesn’t affect neighbor videos), which may help the early stages of the game.
The game is simple enough; you are losing health points rapidly(being converted to energy)and can expend health to deal with damage or block damage. At 200 energy, you or your enemy can attack and or block: attack; it’s a simple game.
To unlock his 2x vitality output ability, you have to customize your spinner with greater damage, at a monetary cost. Once you have a really high damage output and an attack ability, you press the left and right arrow keys, and you have to fight him 4 times at increasing difficulties.
The attacking ability is unequipped from your fidget spinner when customizing it, so make sure you reattach it each time.
Radio exercise guy: (5 am)
This guy is depressed because no one wants to dance with him in the morning. Ask everyone around town who has a questline to join in at 5 AM, and they’ll agree. You also have to ask Kagami, but she will refuse.
The full list is Teacher, her(teacher’s) student, Nanjou, Satou, and Businessman(room 102), Kagami(she won’t show up). Completing this will net you immunity to cold and recover your fatigue/hunger for a single day every time you do the radio exercise.
Affair partner: (3 am)
This character only appears during Nanjou’s questline talking to Nanjou’s husband. There are no additional scenes.
Guitar loving animals: (Random times, behind the convenience store always)
If you play the guitar, and you should since it’s the easiest way to make money, the dogs will eventually be pleased with your performance. Talking to all 4 animal types will net you a reward for Lilim. The problem is I noticed the horse doesn’t like to show up; you have to keep checking behind the convenience store different hours/days until all 4 types have been spoken to.
That old guy from DragonBall Z: (8 am to 1 pm?)
I don’t have an exact time on when he leaves, sorry. He appears in the wooded thicket to the left of your apartment stairs every morning, at 8 am.
This character sells new abilities for use with Lilim only, they have increased costs from 2500 up to 3500, and he has six of them. Getting all of them will make him happy and name you the inheritor of his techniques, and stuff.
The Cafe:( 10 am to 5 pm)
Working at the cafe 5 times nets you the ability to zoom in, only with Lilim. There’s also an item of the day you receive for each time you work there, but the guitar playing is better.
During chapter 5, working at the Cafe again once is required for the investigation.
No scenes happen at the Cafe.
Blue outlined ability unlocking guy: (like.. 2 am, 4 am)
I don’t have an exact time on him either; he appears in the wooded thicket, too, but it’s not as big of a deal since there’s no reason to speak to this character. His unlocks expensive and don’t really serve a purpose.
He sells abilities at a high price rewarded from other side characters, so you are negating any reason to play the game by getting his abilities. The only exception to this is getting the animal press ability from him, then completing the guitar animals side quest (after purchase) nets you 10k minus the ability’s cost.
Gacha man (Noon, 6 pm)
Appearing to the doctor’s left, right at the convenience store, this guy wants all the gachas in sequence. He reappears in Spoiled Child/Summer Memories as well.
In case it isn’t clear, buy all the items until you have the entire set and then give them to him. He gives you another ability for Lilim. It’s worth noting you’ll end up with a massive stack of duplicates, and you can gift the duplicate gachas for affection points after finishing his quest.
Homeless guy (Midnight)
This guy appears in front of the trash can, eating out of it. You have to talk to him once to progress with the true ending; read the ending true ending part for more info.
Doctor(10am to 8pm)
There aren’t any scenes with this character other than the true ending.
He appears in recollection mode only to say “Thanks for playing!” after full game completion.
Ending 0: Beat the game
The main questline is to buy vitality medicine.
Failing investigation questions nets you a loss in $$$.
If you reach an ending that…isn’t the 4 listed here, start a new game or load the autosave (slots 4 or 5). After you die, your maximum stats will be retained and passed down in a new game. In your apartment, scroll down to Other in the action list and choose to inherit abilities to make the game easier. There are no penalties for inheriting abilities/stats, so it might as well. All of your progress with side quests will be retained as well.
Ending 1: Solve the murders!
To get ending 1, you have to ignore Hoori (the blonde friend of Lilim) during Chapter 4, then proceed with chapter 5. At the start of chapter 5, choose to investigate instead of ambushing the murderer. Talk to every shaded outline character (The blue guys, the pink girls), work once at the restaurant, and read the book on succubi from the convenience store, the Leanan-sidhe part.
To help yourself out later, during Chapter 5, go to the trash can at midnight to talk to the beggar. If he doesn’t appear, don’t worry about it. You can reload a save and do it later. Talking to him is required to trigger the True ending. Keep a save in Chapter 5.
Ending 2: Talk to Hoori during chapter 4 cinematic.
“Ending” 3: Die to Lilim in various ways?
There is a cinematic in Chapter 5 where you say “Ambush the criminal” instead of “investigate the crime,” and Lilim will kill you as a result. Not a real ending.
True ending: Not a very happy ending, to be honest.
After finishing the game, and having talked to the beggar at midnight to be aware of him, exit to the main menu and enter recollection mode; there’ll be a blue guy in plain sight, not the black suit, a blue outlined guy. Talk to him, then load a save in Chapter 5
At midnight talk to the beggar in front of the gym with a vitality medicine in your inventory, and the game will be 100% complete.
