Chapter 5:

Story Walkthrough:

Exit the MOR and go around the outside of the next room until it goes pitch black and you see a shadow of a rocking horse. Go inside the center and turn on the lamp. Then wait for the commotion to end and exit through the door in between the lamp and the chair. Exit another door with "Restless memories" scribbled above it. Continue until you see a hallway with a door on the left. This door is opposite a bookshelf. Go in and check the far drawer to find M#10. Exit this room and go left through the next door. You will see the ghost at the other end of the room. Unfortunately you have to grab a picture near her, beside a candle. You can run and grab M#11 before she gets you, but if you go too far you will die. Do this quickly and run back.

Exit this hall, and in the next room, grab the key from the pile of rubble on the floor. Unlock the next door and continue. Go down the narrow path until you reach the room with the "Cat/Dog/Rat" note on the side. Take a look at this note for a second. The will be a picture of either a cat, a dog, or a rat above each word. Whichever animal has the picture, you need to follow the three lines associated with it to receive a 3 number code. Use this code to exit the door. Continue until you're blocked by debris. Turn around until a bright door opens. Don't go through yet. Instead, keep turning again until another secret path appears. There will be a white rat in front of a bunch of floating paintings. Go down this path and through the door. Check the drawers under the wine rack for R#13. Unfortunately, M#12 requires you to go through the bright door I previously mentioned. You have two options here. Either quit and resume and work your way back to this area to get M#12, or simply do this on another play through. For M#12, go through the bright door and check the small table for the note. Either path will lead you to the same area anyway.

When you get to the area with floorboard and parts of the wall missing, check the wall on the right to find R#14. There is also a candle in this area. Continue until you reach the area after the doors slam in your face. In the very next room will be a note to the left of the couch. This is M#13. In the next room, check the chest on the right hand side for W#18. Then go over to the big painting. After it moves back, turn around to find the same painting. Keep turning again until there are four paintings of eyes looking at you. Simply wait until you wake up after the quick event. When you wake up, exit, and you'll be in TJ. Go to the right and in the door, check the back of the painting to find R#15. Turn around and go through the right door. In the next hall will be a minor jump scare. Continue on into the room with red organic matter on a painting. Look on a small table nearby for W#19. Leave this room and when you get into the next hall, stop. Go slowly forward until you see "Don't Look Back" above the door. Do as it says for a bonus achievement. Continue on through the door without turning to receive:

In the next room, pull the chain 3 times then go through the next door. Continue until you get to TJ, go forward, and check the floor for W#20. Exit TJ and go wait over by the lamp. Activate it and you'll see a shadow in the room. Wait for it to pass and go over to the door and activate the lightswitch. It will reveal a new door. JSA upon opening this door. After the scare, go over to the fireplace to find W#21. Leave the room and pull the elevator lever either way. If you pull it to the right, there is a Jump Scare. If you pull it left, skip until ** If you pull it to the right, you'll end up in a room surrounded by cells. Pull all the doors until they are all stuck. Then look up.

**When you wake up, leave the room and chest the chest in the room to find W#22. Leave the room, then in the next hall, check the windowsill to the left for W#23. Continue until you find yourself in your office. Go over and open the drawer on the right hand side of the desk. Wait for the room to light up a bit, then turn and look at the painting. It will have a code on it. Go over to the single bookshelf and pull one of the books away to activate a secret door. Pick up the phone, and then type the code 911 for

Afterwards, type the code you just found into the phone, using cn_RT and cn_RS. After that, go back into the office and look up. Wait for the baby to scream, then go back to where the secret phone just was. Go through the corridor until you reach the ledge. Slowly go to the left until you find an opening with a phone. Answer it, then turn back and wait for the bookshelf to fall to the ground. Look down and you'll see the code. Put this into the phone. Exit and continue along the ledge until you find a phone inside a small room. Answer it, and then go back out and look across to see a cabinet open and a doll fall. Use that code on the phone. After this, turn around and go across the bridge until the telephone ahead falls. Then go back the way you came until you yourself fall. After waking up in your office, answer the phone, and then wait for the telephone to melt. After this, interact with the melted phone to pick up the next piece. After the dialogue, leave the room, and then add the piece to the canvas.
