Just a small guide to help you defeat the darkness.
so you’ve just joined a game with some friends or alone and your first thought is “Well wtf do I do now?”
Firstly, head up to the mansion and search the nearby area for an entrance key, this is gonna allow you to .. well enter the mansion. (if you get stuck at this bit, it’s probably not the game for you)
get your team and enter the house, only the person with the key can open the locked door, so keep that in mind for later.
from here on, you’re gonna encounter enemies, 2 types. (since I don’t wanna spoil too much, I’ll use codenames for them) we’ll go with the “Masked” and “Her/She” but we’ll talk about them a bit later.
For now, your main objective consists of two choices, you either need to do the Boiler objectives – “Murder by Steam” or do the Mirror objectives “lifting the curse” these are two separate endings, so work together with your team to decide which one you are aiming for, there’s nothing worse than your team splitting the objectives as they don’t benefit one another.
a quick sidenote – a few rooms require you to find keys and these will glow white when you’re near them, so keep an eye out in draws, safes, etc etc.
Ending one – “Murder by Steam”
If you’re taking the “Murder by Steam” option, then you need to locate bags of coal and then the Boiler room It’s in the basement.after putting the bags of coal in, you need to locate 5 valves around the house, after that, ending 1 is complete, Pretty straightforward.
Ending two – “Lifting the Curse”
Ending 2 is “Lifting the Curse” personally I think this one is more difficult, Step one is locating the Mirror Room. it’s always in the same place, but well, you find it. part of the funafter you’ve located this room, you need your team to split up and find mirror pieces in the mansion, once the mirror has been reassembled, you’ll need to collect spiders to sacrifice in the mirror room (They spawn in the mirror room anyway, so it’s not difficult to get them)
Last but not least, you need to find the skull, it’s a regular skull you will find attached to a body sitting in a chair in one of the mansions many, many rooms, I don’t know if it spawns in the same place every time, only completed this ending once.
Simply place the skull in the pentagram on the floor and ba-bam! you’ve done ending 2.
Talking about them enemies
As I said earlier, I’ll keep them codenamed, as I don’t want to spoil it too much.
so we’ll begin with the “Masked”
The Masked are the most common enemy patrolling the mansion, these guys are relentless in chasing you, if you are spotted, they will chase you to the ends of the earth until you get to a place they can’t reach or duck into a hiding spot, they roughly run at the same speed as you, so kiting is a viable option, having a teammate pull them away from an objective and running them around whilst you complete said objective, is a perfectly viable strategy.
Enemy 2 is “She/Her” I really don’t wanna spoil what it is, but you’ll prob see her early on, yet she won’t be hunting straight away, so no worries there.
But when she does start hunting, She is relentless and is incredibly stealthy when you’re dashing around the house she will also follow you just about anywhere!
if she spots you, stay calm, turn and run to your nearest anti-enemy hiding spot, we’ll talk about them next.
Hiding can be your best friend.
your best weapon in this game, is memory, learn the layout, learn the hiding spots, knowing where your nearest hiding spot is located is an absolute lifesaver in this game.
These hiding spots are invaluable, they are easy to locate, being marked with Yellow handprints or yellow paint, on your first attempt, I’d suggest sneaking around and locating some of these hiding spots so you know where to escape in a chase.
IT IS VITAL YOU KNOW WHERE THESE ARE, Because.. you can’t run forever.. i mean you can.. but you’ll probably make a mistake sooner or later and end up having like 3-4 Masked chasing you.. which is always fun to kite into teammates, but they might not appreciate that.
Just have fun with it.
Honestly, I play a lot of Horror games and this one had me pretty spooked, it’s very high tension and the chases make you panic and forget things and lose your way.
I really enjoyed this, I highly suggest getting your friends and having some fun for a few hours on this, considering the price, it’s very much worth it.
Hopefully this guide can help you get a tiny understanding of what to do but also.. not ruin too much of the experience.. and remember.. it’s okay to let out girlish screams when it’s with friends.. Least that’s what I tell myself..
