Academagia Wiki

Research (Action) enables your student to deepen their knowledge of the various skills in development during their first year at the Academagia. For those interested in pursuing this level of Research, some key points should be observed:

  • While the first 9 levels of each Topic only ever add pieces of Lore, the last (10th) level usually provides a more significant in-game benefit, either:
    • unlocking access to the 11th 'training level' of a Subskill (which improves access to Level 11 of the Parent Skill), or
    • Expanding an Attribute by +1.
  • A number of Topics are automatically unlocked as the game begins; all others are unlocked by the discovery (active or incidental) of specific Locations in and around the Academagia and Mineta.
    • It is unconfirmed whether or not an Increase to the Research Parent Skill has any bearing on the Research Action, or on progress within any topic; regardless, know that the Locations which unlock topics are the required Locations for Researching those respective topics. (i.e. one can only use the Help Desk while Researching Speaking Quietly of Riddles.)
