Root Double is unique amongst VNs in that it doesn't have a traditional choice system where the player chooses between one or two prewritten options. Rather, it uses a system known as the "Senses Sympathy System". With this system, the player is occasionally prompted to adjust an Enneagram graph, which shows the protagonist's trust levels with other characters and themselves. By adjusting the trust levels, they can change the outcome of various events in the story, determine whether or not you avoid a Bad Ending, and whether you head for a Good Ending or the Normal Ending.
