Walkthrough

There are 3 tiers to this mission.

NOTES:

  • If you are working on the Become a Terrible Thought achievement do not turn off any experiments without passing through them (unscathed) first!
  • If you fail the achievement, the mission objectives will change. Instead of "Get past the X experiment" and "(Optional) Turn off the experiment" your objective will be "Use the emergency override to X experiment".


Tier 1/3

  • (Optional) Turn off the experiment
    • Interact with the wall switch after the second room to disable the generators.
  • Find the next experiment
  • Get past the interval lightning exposure experiments
    • The interval experiment discharges lightning in a set pattern on a periodic basis.

Continue your mission and file your reports?

Remind me again what these reports are pertaining to?

I feel as if I can vaguely remember...as if everything is a distant dream.

This tower is pretty much a house of horrors when you lay out each report of the corporations you've explored. One floor death, next floor death, and... well you get the picture. Maybe we should consider renting this tower from Orochi next Halloween. I digress.

Keep moving!

Ciao-ciao

Amazing to read about such experimentation. Energy bars based on insects, weather controlling devices and plants that do not require sunlight. Impressive, but never when things like these remain in Orochi hands. Congrats on your findings. Keep up the good work.

God-speed.
