The game has 2 different modes, Normal and Explicit, which can only be selected upon starting the game and cannot be changed mid-game. You can have multiple save slots for different game modes. Both modes contain mature content (on differing levels) and are intended for adult audiences only. Explicit R18 scenes and illustrations are only included in Explicit Mode.
Player choices will affect Rei's personality through the following stats:
Influence Jin's personality through a mystery stat! What happens when the gauge is maxed out?
Some choices will only affect one stat, while others may affect multiple. The Explicit Mode of the game has additional choices that the Normal Mode doesn't have, so be careful what decisions you make!
Certain combinations of these stats will result in different endings, some that may come early in the story.
