The main story of Puppet Nightmares can be cycled through multiple times. This way, players can discover any hidden goodies they may have missed on earlier playthroughs, as well as increase the game's difficulty for a much greater challenge.
A Game Over occurs when a player's remaining spirit reaches 0. The player will then be pushed back to the beginning of the current episode and have to suffer several harsh penalties.
The following are possessions you will lose during a Game Over if you do not have a Protection Coin .
The following will explain the mentioned items.
|Protection Coins||You can buy these from the Credit Shop. They prevent the loss of possessions you currently have in the event of a Game Over.|
|Spirit||Every player starts the game with 10 spirit, which can be refilled at the Credit Shop when you are low. Note that starting an episode or encountering a game over restores this to 10.|
|Temporary Equips||These will become Permanent when you move onto the next episode or safely restart from the end of the current.|
If you're trapped in the story, this is a safe option within the Credit Shop to reset your current progress to a particular episode you have access to.
