Watch the scene with Susan in consultation with a doctor. Learn about his appreciation of fine art & how he views his patients in comparison. You find out that Susan was a nurse & aware of the assessment process, so agrees to answer all of his questions - she wants to go home.
Cedar Lake Hospital: Susan is lying in a hospital bed with a nurse present as she awakes. When a doctor appears you can either answer or ignore his questions. Before he leaves followed by the nurse, he reassures Susan about her arm.
The nurse returns & introduces herself as Liz. Listen to her chat.
After she leaves Susan has a hallucination then wakes up to see Liz sitting on the edge of her bed. When she mentions ‘bad dream’ be truthful & tell her you had a really bad one, & that you were burnt alive when she asks you what it was about. This prompts her to relate a story it reminds her of! NB This info may be useful later on.
Pursue other dialogue choices to learn that Susan’s ‘daughter’ called an ambulance after finding her & that Susan is in a Suicide Watch Unit where the nurses are trigger-happy with the sedatives.
Ask Liz all questions to find out more about Dr X & more about herself. Take note of the occupations of the girls she lives with & when her boyfriend broke up with her.

Interact with the flowers further to the left to find out that Susan hates them.
Go further left & read the drug chart for side room 1 to learn the patient’s details & that she is a voluntary private patient with a history of drug abuse. Check out her room if you want.
Continue to the left & talk to the nurse - choose any subject but talk to her again if needed to ask if Liz is here?
Read the discharge letter lying on the counter then try to take it.......
Carry on walking to the left & try to walk past the security guards who tell you that a discharge letter is needed to leave & some form of identification.
Get identification: Go back towards the toilet to see the patient from side room 2 emerging looking confused. Try to talk to her & it becomes obvious that she is experiencing withdrawal symptoms. You need to give her the name of her mother before she will talk any further.
Enter the toilet.
Examine & search the bin in the corner to get a medication pot. Read the note to see that messages are often written on the mirror.
Examine the mirror & take the shard of glass.
Interact with the sink & run hot water tap. Wait & see some letters appear on the mirror which don’t make sense.
Press the bell. When the nurse arrives tell her you’re feeling a bit woozy. You can either take drugs or refuse - it doesn’t matter....... You start to hallucinate & see a full name on the mirrors.
Exit the bathroom & continue to walk left until you come to a red pumping narcotic heart. Use the shard of glass on it then the medication pot to get drug.
Go back to your room & lie down on the bed.

Listen to Liz & then answer the questions she asks you with ‘Yeah, she smoked a cigarette & burned in bed’, ‘Stripper’ & ‘On Valentine’s day’.
See what happens. NB Getting any of the answers wrong doesn’t make any difference but answering them correctly will give an option later.
Consultation (cont): Listen to Dr X.......
Truth & lies: Find yourself in what looks like a theatre. Go to the left, pull the cord then go to the right & listen to the crow.
Walk further to the right to see two doors guarded by grotesque dolls. Behind one of the doors lies a reward & to find out which you are allowed to ask only one of the dolls one question. The catch is that one of the Guardians always tells the truth & the other one always lies but you don’t know which is which!
Ask either of the dolls (it doesn’t matter) ‘Which door would the other doll point me to?’ They will highlight one of the doors but the ‘correct’ door will always be the other one.
If the doll you ask is telling the truth it knows the other doll will lie & point you to the wrong door.
If the doll is lying it will lie about which door the doll telling the truth will point you to.
Open & enter the door not highlighted (in my game it was the left door)...... Try to take your ‘reward’. Go to the door on the right to appear in a familiar room. Blow out one of the candles.......
Go directly to this room if you pick the wrong door.

Exit the storage area & go to the left to see a ‘painting’.......Examine the ‘Mona Lisa’ & then open & enter through the door to the left of it to enter a work-shop. Take the bolt from the shelf & examine the work bench. Exit the area, continue left & examine ‘Venus’. Look at the hand to get a close-up then use the wet soap on the painting to get a nut.
Go further left & examine ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’ then go beyond that to open the locker & take the wrench. Continue left to the room where you can hear screams coming from to see a disturbing scene. You can try to attack the perpetrator when he’s finished talking but you will need a weapon.
Go way back to the right, past the padded cell, until you come to ‘Lady in Ermine’. Examine it & take the doll’s head. Continue walking right & read the danger sign. At the end of the corridor see an impaled ‘body’. Interact with it to take it down & get a second iron bar. Examine & try to open the door left of the body to find out that it’s the exit & it’s locked.
Take the key right of the door (if there’s one there.) Use it on the door & Susan wonders if it was left for her by Liz. NB Liz doesn’t leave the key unless you answered all of her question correctly on the roof. Choose to stay or leave.
Make weapons: If you choose to stay or you have no choice, go back to the work-shop. Use the work bench to make a spear with both the iron bars, bolt, nut & wrench and/or a mace with the chair leg, saw blade & doll’s head. Exit the workshop & go left again to the disturbing scene. Use either the mace or the spear on the perpetrator - pick any dialogue choice! Approach the girl & untie her. When she asks who you are, answer as you like!

Continue to the left past the bag to see some *old poems, including one called ‘River’, that Susan had written. Go to the right & interact with the bag to get coins & cigarettes. NB If you interact with the bag first, the bills will stress Susan & she won’t see the poems.
Exit the bedroom & go right towards the flat door to *see a shadow. Continue right to exit the flat & use the coins on the electric meter.

Walk to the right to be in the next room & interact with Jesse’s PC to use it - of course there’s no power! Examine the socket on the right then use the extension cord on it.
Go down to the 1st floor to enter flat 1 then walk to the room on the far right. Plug in the cable dangling outside the window & return to flat 7. Go to the right & Mitzi automatically checks out the computer while Susan watches the door.
Susan’s idea: Go to the basement. Use the screwdriver on the tin of paint then take the red paint. Take the white dress from the sewing dummy & use it on the coal chute to get a black dress. Hang this back on the sewing dummy then use the scissors on the sewing dummy to cut the dress.
Susan now starts to relate The Legend of Cat Widow to Mitzi during which she reveals & carries out her idea. During the story, as Susan, choose any options to visualise them - some of the more ‘extreme’ ideas Mitzi will contradict. After concluding the ‘story’ you see Susan & Mitzi back in the basement & Bryan is crossed off the list of suspects.
Susan & Mitzi automatically arrive outside their flat, read the note pinned to the door then enter the flat to get coffee.
Watch the scene panning the basement followed by a disturbing scene of Joe with ‘Ivy’.
‘DON’T FEED THE TROLL’
After glimpsing the visions see Mitzi & Susan emerge from their flat at midnight. They automatically arrive at the venue stated in the note.
Walk to the right & examine the fish tank. Notice the door covered in stickers before continuing right to enter the kitchen. After the person has finished speaking interact with them to take the box.
