The iM system is the social media platform in Cytus II. It serves as the game's story progression and the method for unlocking new songs. By playing songs, the characters will gain XP and level up.

  • When the game released with version 1.0, the level cap was 25.
  • With the 1.1 update, the level cap for Paff, Neko, and ROBO_Head was increased to 30. 
    • This was further increased to 35 in 1.3, 40 in 1.4, 43 in 1.5, 46 in 1.6, 49 in 1.7, 52 in 1.8, 55 in 1.9 and 57 in 2.0.
    • In update 2.4, Neko and ROBO_Head's level caps are increased to 66, and Paff's level cap is increased to 72.
  • With the 1.5 update, the level cap for Xenon and ConneR was increased to 26.
    • In 1.6, the level cap increased to 27 for ConneR, Cherry and Joe.
    • In 1.7, the level cap increased to 27 for Xenon, and 28 in 1.8.
  • In the 2.0 update, Ivy became the first character to have a initial level cap of 30.

Personal OS Logs also exist for each character, and convey other key story events.

Gaining XPEdit

After playing a song, that song's character gains XP based on the score achieved:[1]

XP gain = 150 * (score / 1,000,000) + Bonuses

Bonuses are awarded as follows:

  • Completing a song's difficulty for the first time: 100 XP.
  • Achieving a Full Combo (50 XP for the first FC of that difficulty, 25 XP afterward).
  • Achieving a Million Master (50 XP for the first FC of that difficulty, 25 XP afterward).
  • Completing a song whilst a character is level 25 or above will reward an additional 100 XP.

Story ProgressionEdit

When a character gains enough XP to level up, new posts may appear in the iM feed, which acts as the game's story system. Often they'll be from the character who leveled up but can also include other characters and NPCs. Posts have a like button that can be pressed (however this will only affect the number of likes through the whole server), and a comment section, where additional story elements can be found.

Level LockingEdit

At certain points in the game, a post will be locked, and can only be unlocked when the specified characters reach a certain level. When a character reaches the desired level, their level will be locked. That character can then no longer gain XP until the locked post is unlocked and opened. This serves to make sure each character progresses at the same pace.
