Assuming you don’t live in Japan, you will need to use a Japanese proxy/VPN to buy a digital copy of STEINS;GATE 0 for PC. If you don’t have access to such, you can use Tor:

Setting up Tor
  1. Download and install Tor Browser.
  2. Run the program once, then close it again.
  3. Find the directory you installed Tor Browser in.
  4. Go to Browser\TorBrowser\Data\Tor and open torrc in your text editor (e.g. Notepad).
  5. Add the following two lines:

    ExitNodes {jp}
    StrictNodes 1
  6. Start Tor Browser again.
  7. Open the menu, go to Options, select Privacy.
  8. Uncheck “Restrict third party cookies and other tracking data”.
  9. Uncheck “Always use private browsing mode”. Tor Browser will ask to be restarted. Allow it.
Buying the game

In the following guide, do everything labeled “with proxy” while connecting through your proxy/VPN (or in Tor Browser), and everything labeled “without proxy” with your proxy/VPN turned off (or in your regular web browser).

  1. With proxy: Register on DMM.com.
  2. Without proxy: Login on DMM.com, then add your credit card or top up DMM points. One Point = One Yen, so top up as many as STEINS;GATE 0 currently costs.
  3. With proxy: Buy STEINS;GATE 0.
  4. With proxy: Go to your game library, click STEINS;GATE 0. Right click buttons 1, 2 and 3 as well as the button with the download icon above, click “Save Link As…” for each, and save the files to the same folder, not changing the file names.
