Zero Time Dilemma
Developed by Chime
Buy the Game (Steam)
“The lives of you, me, and the human race hang in the balance.”

Nine people have been living and performing experiments for the past five days in the Dcom facility. On the sixth day, they discover they are trapped in confinement rooms, an unfamiliar black bracelet strapped to their left wrists. A mysterious figure in a mask appears before them, demanding that they play the “Decision Game.”
Transported to a shelter underground, they are divided into 3 teams and left in separate wards. Which team will manage to stay alive…?
The fate of all mankind rests on their decision!

Zero Time Dilemma is the third entry in the acclaimed Zero Escape series. The mysterious “Zero” traps 9 participants within an underground shelter, dividing them equally between 3 wards that are connected to an elevator shaft in the middle. The only way out – passing through a locked X-Door to access the elevator. Six passwords are required to unlock the door, and each password is revealed only after a participant dies. Zero’s “Decision Game” will offer teams the opportunity to kill other participants through a variety of means to obtain the necessary passwords so they may escape.

*Game Info (VERY IMPORTANT! READ!)*
Since the game already provides explanations about it's mechanics (like menus, the fragment's and the flowchart, etc. Just click the question mark button), I'll mainly focus on the other aspects, the game is divided in two parts, the "cinematic" parts where you see a cutscene and sometimes make a choice, and the "Seek a Way Out Part" which are the puzzle room parts of the game. Since this a completionist guide, I'll be focusing on showing the most possible content. In case you're missing any of the games collectibles (Quest Files, Endings, Achievements) you can see the "Extra" section at the bottom of this guide.
I'll also be assuming you'll follow the requested Fragment order (for a better flow of the story, since some Fragment's are "Sequels" to each other and can end up spoiling the mystery if you see some of them early and also some Fragment's are required for the unlocking of other events) and doing the Bad Endings (this are also important since they are required for the unlocking of other Fragment's and can also have plot information on them like Q-Bad End=Press the Button, I also advise doing them first, before finishing a Fragment). 
If you see any text covered in black (like this), it means it is hiding a spoiler so highlight it to see the contents.
The Fragment order is:

Spoiler
  • Concide
  • Execution: C
  • Execution: Q
  • Execution: D
  • C: First Come First Saved
  • Q: First Come First Saved
  • D: First Come First Saved
  • Q: Radical-6
  • D: Outbreak (Execute D-again after finishing the fragment) 
  • C: Suspicion
  • Q: Triangle (Execute Q-again after finishing the fragment) 
  • C: Poison 
  • D: Fire
  • C: Anthropic Principle
  • C: Ambidex
  • Q: Pop Off
  • D: Suppression
  • Q: Reality
  • C: Monty Hall
  • D: Transporter
  • D: Door of Truth
  • C: Get Back
  • C: Apocalypse
  • Q: Q (Go back to execution and make everyone save each other, have C vote for D, Q vote for C, and D vote for Q, after finishing the fragment) 
  • C: Force Quit 
  • Q: Force Quit 
  • D: Force Quit 
  • Any Team: Final Decision
  • Any Team: Coincide (2)

-CQD Fragments-

Spoiler

Your main objective right now is to try and get [CQD-END:1] before moving on (You'll be unable to see some fragment's without it), the coin toss is actually random, on my playthrough I got Blue as the correct one, but it may vary, so if you realized you chose wrong, go back to the flowchart and try again.

If you win the Coin Toss you'll get CQD-END:1-Pay-off/Beginning of the End
After that loss the Coin Toss.

Execution (CQD)

Spoiler

There are four possible outcomes:

  • All Team lives
  • C-Team gets executed
  • Q-Team gets executed
  • D-Team gets executed

These four outcomes are very important for the unlocking of other Fragments, so do them before moving on. The easiest way to get all four outcomes is: C-Team votes for D-Team, D-Team votes for Q-Team, Q-Team votes for D-Team, Q-Team votes for C-Team, C-Team votes for Q-Team and D-Team votes for C-Team.

 

H1mN7eO.png

Spoiler

Self-explanatory, this can barely be called a choice, since the "right" option is very obvious.
Don't SHIFT or let the timer run out= Bad End: Don't SHIFT
THEN
SHIFT= End of Fragment

After that go back to "coincide", a new route unlocked after the original CQD End, click on it, you'll get the final ending of the game: CQD-END:2-Pay-off 2/The Final Decision

After finishing the game, remember to check the "cinema files" on any fragment, new "Epilogue" files will be unlocked!

 

-C-Team Fragments-

Spoiler

Already covered in "Execution CQD".

 

1JgYlZP.png
 

Spoiler

There is only one choice on this Fragment, BUT, there is an extra scene in the beginning that appears if C-Team was the last one executed, before starting this Fragment, go back to the execution and kill C-Team (You have to redo the votes, only watching the outcome won't trigger it, there's a skip button at the bottom right of the cutscenes, so it is pretty easy to redo choices).

Press the Button= You only have one choice right now, select the Fragment that appears on the C-Team Fragment screen. You'll get Bad End...? (X-Passes: SELF, RIP, LAKE, BIRD, TWIN and OLD)

THEN

Don't Press the Button= End of the Fragment.

Okay before you make any choice, I'll have to warn that the endings here are... changeable.
What I mean by that after seeing one, the other will change, so if you see "Ally" first betray will have it's dialogue changed. I was unable to see both variations of the ending via flowchart, so if you want to see the "Clueless Carlos" variation and the "SHIFTer Carlos" variation of each ending you'll have to save scum (quit without saving).
NOW FOR THE CHOICE:
Ally= Bad End: AB Game "Ally"
OR
Betray= Bad End: AB Game "Betray"

After you see both you'll unlock a third (middle) branch, you'll only have one choice after that, follow the fragment's on team select.

  • Alex (White robot) will give you "Alex's Note (Manufacturing)".

If you Don't Shoot= You get the first "end" of this Fragment.

Now... 
If you Shoot a "Blank" round the fragment will continue until you reach another choice.

  • Deploy a card on the blue device.
  • Read chapter 2 from the book. A question need to be answered

Puzzle Note: Wind=0. (From chapter 1)

Moon x Moon x Moon = 3Moon but 3Moon<=12.so Moon can only be 1 or 2. But Moon x Moon = 2Moon, so it means Moon can't be 1. Moon=2.

Human x Moon x Moon = Human2Moon but Human2Moon<=12 and Moon=2 so Human<=3. But Human x Human = 2Human, so it means Human can't be 1. Wind=0 and Moon=2 so it means Human=3.

You have: 0=Wind, 1=????, 2=Moon, 3=Human, 4=2Moon, 5=????, 6=HumanMoon, 7=????, 8=3Moon, 9=2Human, 10=????, 11=???? and 12=Human2Moon.

StarMoon = Star x Moon and Moon=2 so StarMoon is an even number. It can only be 10. StarMoon=10 and Star=5.

We're missing the value for the Bird, Flower and Sun cards. The only way to get them is to use the blue device to compare the value of the cards.

The Bird is stronger than the Sun and the Flower. Bird=11

The Flower is stronger than the Sun. Sun=1 and Flower=7.

Now you have: 0=Wind, 1=Sun, 2=Moon, 3=Human, 4=2Moon, 5=Star, 6=HumanMoon, 7=Flower, 8=3Moon, 9=2Human, 10=StarMoon, 11=Bird and 12=Human2Moon.

Now convert it using the green device. Select Moon, Flower, 2Human, Star and Sun. To get Human2Moon, 2Human, Star and Sun.

  • Use the code Human2Moon, 2Human, Star and Sun in the device below the purple text.
