Added DiffLines:

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The Archbishop, [[spoiler:the Chief of Police, and The Mayor]] are all murdered while their matrixes aren't present in The Great Database, preventing their resurrection. It's mentioned that a robot's matrix is indestructible, so it could still be possible to locate their matrixes and re-insert them. However, even at the end of the game, it's never addressed.


* PocketDimension: One exists inside The Great Database. It's where the matrix of every robot in Chimera is kept

In this game, you play as D-Tritus Debris, a literally self-made robot who has recently come to the planet Scrapland, and its capital city of Chimera. As soon as he arrives, his matrix is entered into The Great Database, a massive machine that revives any robot that dies, and is assigned a job as a reporter. No sooner does any of this happen than something unthinkable happens. The Archbishop of Chimera is murdered... and his matrix has been removed from The Great Database, [[KilledOffForReal meaning he can't be revived]]. After this, D-Tritus is contacted by a mysterious robot, who knows that there's more to The Archbishop's murder than what is believed. From there, D-Tritus soon finds himself caught up in a huge conspiracy.
