Managing Darkening



This game has a game mechanic called "Darkening". Open your menu to see current percent of Darkening. If Darkening reaches 100% game ends.

Some events and bad ends require you to get Darkening above certain point. Easy way to carefully make the Darkening level go up slowly is to find a corpse and examine it repeatedly.

Things that raises Darkening:

  • Interacting with environment.
  • Examining corpses.
  • Being attacked.
  • Unavoidable story events.

Usually Darkening isn't a problem, but in certain very long chapters it might reach 100% if you check everything in search mode.

  1. Choose either option.
  2. Go to 1-A. Examine the lever on the desk in and choose first option.
