100man-nin no Kiniro no Corda (100万人の金色のコルダ, Hyakuman-nin no Kiniro no Corda; translated as: "One Million People's La Corda d'oro") is a social game adaptation of the Kiniro no Corda series. It is roughly set during Kiniro no Corda 2 but includes Kiniro no Corda 2 f encore characters and events.
The main story is an ongoing national music festival with other Japanese prefectures. Every returning male character has original scenarios exclusive to the social game.
Players press the enter key (mobile) or left mouse click (PC) to confirm their actions in the game. There is no sound aside from the rare voice clips heard during character events. The game is free to play, but micro payments are given to restorative items, tickets, and avatar customization. The player can earn many of these items by completing limited events.
The protagonist is a customizable player avatar. Her hairstyle, eye color, skin color, clothing and accessories, wallpaper background, and name can be changed to the player's preferences. Rarer items can have her mimic the Corda cast. Bravo Points (BP) earned from performances or digital currency can be used to purchase additional customization options. Regardless of the player's alterations, her default look (Kahoko Hino) is used as her representative figure for special character event stills. The default maximum capacity for customization is 50, yet the player can earn/purchase bags to increase their limit.
The goal of the game is to use the avatar's Energy to romance the male cast. Each avatar has four standard parameters: Energy, Experience, BP, and the series's three music genres; music genres are abbreviated as "Clear" (清), "Flowery" (華), and "Sorrow" (哀) in her profile section. Energy is used to practice music, and experience levels up an avatar's level —a necessary component for meeting the standard technique level for advanced songs. Real-time timers indicate when the protagonist's Energy is naturally restored to its peak. Five scores can be collected at a time; purchasing/earning lockers can increase the default limit.
Every musical composition consumes a variable amount of Energy to master. She can only play one mastered song at a time for a single character; each performance fills one half of a male character's Favoritism (heart icons in their profile entry). When all the heart icons are filled, the avatar can compete in a concour against an AI NPC. If the protagonist wins, the player unlocks a male's love event. Love events must be watched in order to move onto the next level. Concours and love events can commence at the player's leisure, but they will be unable to play for a character until they proceed to his next level. Heart icons increase with each love level. Characters start at one heart (2 consecutive performances); they can currently go as high as 40+ hearts (80+ performances).
Treasure boxes, free and random roulette for songs, may randomly appear as the protagonist practices. The player is asked to pick one box before proceeding with a possible chance of procuring sheet music. Special love events, such as Golden Week and White Day celebrations, often require her to do the same random selection for a character's individual sheet music —music with a character icon for easy identification. These particular love events have triggers which are separate from their main story hearts yet have the same conditions for success. If the player wishes to view the special events and illustrations for a character, they are asked to procure, practice and play that specific character's sheet music ten times within the time limit. Certain days of the event will have a higher chance of providing two characters' music.
The protagonist's expertise with each genre increases if she practices a matching score with a plus mark (+) near its title. These musical compositions are rare finds in the game's normal gacha, but easier to obtain for the rare gacha. Incidental boosts can come from her clothing, accessories, and wallpaper. Once its effect wears off, the player will need to pay if they wish to renew it. Music genres determines the protagonist's strength in concours and other competitive limited timed events.
Guilds can be joined once the protagonist reaches level 15. The main benefit for joining a high leveled guild is increasing the protagonist's Energy capacity. BP and music are secondary if rarer gains. Daily missions are deployed to guild members to fulfill; if successful, the guild can level up. Fellow players can cheer for one another to give a minor BP boost to both parties. Befriended players can share practice sessions for greater BP gain. BP is the normal means of paying for additional practice music.
If the player wishes to view an earned romance event again, they must consume an event ticket from their inventory. Tickets are often prizes in limited time events; they can alternatively be purchased using digital currency. One ticket is used per event. Romance events without the ticket toll have a tiny sprout icon next to them. Once any event is earned, it is kept within the event gallery unless the player chooses to wipe their account clean in the profile settings.
Characters in the aforementioned Corda titles return in this game. Kanazawa, Ousaki, Etou, and Kira are limited time entries whom rotate in and out for selection. Here are the new characters for the social game.
