For most of its lifespan, TOME had an somewhat interesting upload cycle, due to the fact that it continued for over three years uninterruped (resulting in an even longer run than its predecessor, which only lasted about two and a half years before its cancellation). Although the Remake's first four episodes were funded by Newgrounds, (and were at first exclusive to it), the series stopped posting new episodes to Newgrounds after Episode Nine and eventually expanded onto YouTube (although the YouTube uploads were taken down for a time before being re-uploaded in two parts via Channel Frederator). The series eventually created its own website (which used embeds of versions of the episodes uploaded to Blip) before finally finding a permanent home on YouTube, where Chris Niosi uploaded complete versions of all sixteen episodes, seven shorts, and the April Fool's Special to his channel (along with special commentary videos previously only available on Soundcloud, blooper reels, and interesting Fact Bubble Specials inspired by {{AvatarTheLastAirbender}} with trivia about the show found nowhere else), which replaced the old Blip uploads on the Official Website.

TOME's Script Supervisor, Liz Losey, has begun a spin-off of the reboot titled ''TOME:Respec'', [[SeriesHiatus although it has not seen any new updates since September 2014]] due to lack of funding via Patreon. This spin-off is set in a [[AlternateContinuity slightly alternate version of the game]], where the game operates under different rules and the characters seem to have slightly different personalities. The series has ''[[TheWikiRule three separate wikias]]'' and now has a tool for voting favorite episodes, which can be found here.

* BreakUpMakeUpScenario: This is an ongoing plot between Alpha, Kirbopher and Flamegirl. It started when they had an argument in Awaken the Beast, and it continued when they were shown to be avoiding each other until Season 1's conclusion, after which they appear to be on good terms again.

** {{Parodied}} with the opening to Episode 11, which features an opening scene similar to the first episode... using a DecoyProtagonist that has no bearing on the rest of the plot at all.



* CorruptCorporateExecutive: [[spoiler:Surprisingly not Execk, who is literally the textbook definition of a Corporate Executive. Instead, it's Rubirules, who wishes to use SOFTDI as the foundation for a new technological age, despite the ethics of not only stripping down a being that can feel emotions and sensations, such as pain, but also using, as the crux of the antivirus program to defeat SOFTDI's own virus, an actual user of the game, who would likely be comatose or dead from what he did to her.]]

When Kizuna [[TragicVillain tries to kill SOFDTI]] [[LoveMakesYouCrazy because she doesn't want Zetto to get hurt again]], Zetto is forced to shoot her in the back to save his friend (as SOFDTI and Gamecrazed are revealed to be one and the same at this point). Luckily, it's just a video game (meaning Kizuna is still perfectly fine in real life), giving her and Zetto a chance to reconcile in the future.]]

* BittersweetEnding: [[Alpha and the gang defeat Rubirules, the Virus and the Antivirus are finally destroyed, and the group even gets the chance to meet up in real life. However, due to Rubirules's actions, the Government may have to shut down TOME to prevent an incident like what had happened from ever occurring again, and due to their differing opinions on SOFDTI, Zetto and Kizuna's relationship is also heavily fractured. In addition, Gamecrazed, being an artificial intelligence, can never truly join their friends in the real world (Although WordOfGod confirms that Zetto/Kirbopher filmed the rest of the gang's real-life encounter to show it to them).
