3. Story Walkthrough: Apartments
Introduction & Tutorial (sort of)
After the intro movie, you’ll be in control of Ronan. You will also be required to do some fairly tiresome prompt actions. Stumble your way to the door and try to open it. Keep following the prompts and watching the cutscenes. Soon, you’ll be in a white area. Walk towards the light in front of you for another cutscene.
Once you’re back on the street, try to talk to the people in front of you. A girl will run down a side-alley. Follow her – you can walk through real world objects, but not through ghostly objects. Once you reach the park there’ll be another cutscene and then a conversation. Question the girl (it’s always best to start at the top and work your way down in order) to find out how the ghost world works. This will give you Ghost Girl Clue 1/4: Ghost Abilities. Check your Side Cases and you’ll also have received Ghost Abilities 1-3/14: Pass Through, Possess and Investigate Skill.
Continue questioning her and you’ll receive Ghost Girl Clue 2/4: Trapped Here. After some more questions you’ll receive Ghost Girl Clue 3/4: Demon Threat. After the conversation and following cutscene are over, you’ll receive Ghost Girl Clue 4/4: Unfinished Business. You will also have received Ghost Abilities 5-6/14: Reveal and Remove. Once you’re back in control, make your way back to the street. You will be prompted to enter Town – do so.
After a cutscene you’ll unlock:
New Investigation: Find the Killer’s Trail
You will be prompted to start an investigation – do so. As it’s the first of your investigations, the game spells out nearly everything for you. Check the floor for Evidence 4 to receive Street Clue 1/8: Cigarette. Right next to this is Evidence 3, which will give you Street Clue 2/8: My Gun. Turn to your right to find the policeman reading a file. Possess him and Peek. View the bottom entry to receive Street Clue 3/8: Killer’s Weapons.
Dispossess the policeman and walk over to the body. Inspect it to receive Street Clue 4/8: My Death. Right next to the body you’ll find Evidence 2 and 5, which will give you Street Clue 5/8: Shattered Glass and Street Clue 6/8: Shell Casings.
Past your body will be two policemen talking to each other by the crime-scene tape. Possess one of them and Eavesdrop. This will give you Street Clue 7/8: Bell Killer. Dispossess the policeman and look to their right to find another policeman questioning a woman. Approach the woman and possess her. Influence her and choose “Bell Killer” to jog her memory. This will give you Street Clue 8/8: Killer’s Destination. Dispossess the woman and you’ll be prompted to Conclude Investigation.
This will unlock:
You can now enter the Apartments.
A ghost will walk through the wall to your right before heading back into the room. Ignore him for now and walk forwards to the door ahead of you. Enter the Pool Room. In the corner you’ll see a glowing object. Approach this and you’ll be prompted to reveal it. Do so and you’ll unlock:
Collect it to receive Ghost Stories: A Watery Grave 1/7.
This will also unlock:
Turn right and walk through the wall on the other side of the pool table. Immediately to your left you’ll find Ghost Stories: A Watery Grave 2/7, so reveal and collect it (note: you will need to reveal most things before you can collect them, so I will not be reminding you to do this every time).
On the other side of the room you’ll see a ghost girl leaning against a wall. Approach and speak to her. This will give you Apartment 1A Clue 1/7: A Mysterious Murder.
Turn right and walk through the wall back out into the corridor. There’ll be two people talking to each other near one of the corners. On a table next to them you’ll find Info About My Killer 1/39: News Article #1. On the wall nearby will be Info About My Killer 2/39: Warning Poster.
Now enter Apartment 1A and you’ll be prompted to start an investigation.
New Investigation: What happened to the murdered girl’s body?
Look on the table right next to the door inside the apartment to find Apartment 1A Clue 2/7: Note from a Neighbor.
Turn around and look in the closet for Apartment 1A Clue 3/7: Gardening Tools.
Head into the kitchen and check the table for Apartment 1A Clue 4/7: Newspaper Clipping.
Head to the living area and possess the man sitting down. Choose Mind Read and you’ll unlock:
Now use Influence and prompt him with A Mysterious Murder to receive Apartment 1A Clue 5/7: The Old Man’s Secret. Dispossess him and now possess the woman at the window. Influence her, also with A Mysterious Murder, to receive Apartment 1A Clue 6/7: The Old Woman’s Secret. Dispossess her and conclude the investigation using The Old Woman’s Secret, The Old Man’s Secret and A Mysterious Murder. This will give you Apartment 1A Clue 7/7: Final Resting Place. Head back to the ghost girl and speak to her. This will unlock:
Head out into the corridor and go to the North Stairwell. Immediately to the left of the stairs will be Ghost Stories: A Watery Grave 3/7.
Head up the stairs to the next floor. After a short cutscene, turn to face away from the graffiti and walk past the door to 2B. Check the corner here to find Ghost Girl’s Messages 1/23: Gallows.
Head into apartment 2B and go to the bedroom. In the closet next to the rocking horse you’ll see a ghost. Question him to unlock:
Now go across the hall into apartment 2A. In the closet by the door you’ll find Ghost Stories: A Watery Grave 4/7.
Leave the apartment and head up to the next stairwell for another cutscene. You will now be taught how to escape from demons. Follow the information on screen and the demon will quickly give up looking for you. Sneak up behind the demon to learn how to execute it. Once it’s gone, you’ll unlock:
You’ll also receive Ghost Abilities 7-9/14: Escaping Demons, Approaching Demons and Executing Demons.
Now head up the stairs. Before doing anything else on this floor, first execute the demons patrolling the corridor. Watch their movements from a safe distance before taking them on. You can only execute while you are unseen by both demons, so time it carefully. With both demons executed, check the floor of the corridor for Julia’s Thoughts 1/38: Lillian and Lillian.
Enter apartment 3A and check the wall in the bedroom for Ghost Girl’s Messages 2/23: Coffins.
Head across into apartment 3B to find Ghost Stories: A Watery Grave 5/7 in the corner of the kitchen.

Check the nearby door to find and analyze Apartment 4A Clue 7/16: Hiding Witness. Select Hiding, Watching and Frightened to receive the clue.
Walk through the wall behind the girl to enter the bathroom and find Ghost Stories: A Watery Grave 7/7.

Even though you don’t have all the clues yet, it’s time to solve the case. Choose The Searching Killer and Hiding Witness for a cutscene.
New Investigation: Where did the girl go?
