Please note there is a possible gameover/achievement/ending at this point. On the left side there is a ramp. If you stand still and wait by it, you will get an ending. You will gain the achievement: “Condemned” after the ending plays. You can still go back to where you left off (here) by going to the menu and click continue, so not much of a loss here.
Continue, BUT KEEP RUNNING, AND DON’T LOOK BACK.
Go through the door on the right and follow the paths. Keep going through doors until you get in the next area.
Part 6: The Prison
(ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED! “Thank you, Box…”)
Achievement Description: Escape the lonely underground maze.
How To Get: Escape the maze in the game. After leaving the maintenance area and going up the last ladder to exit to an area with a dumpster, the achievement should unlock automatically.
Achievement Description: Embrace the agony for the rest of eternity.
How To Get: This achievement unlocks once you get the “Condemned” ending. In order to do that, you let the Shadow (red-black ghost) get you. This can happen at a random time, but most likely if you’re playing for the first time, it will be in the car garage area.
Thank you, Box…
Achievement Description: Meet the box of salvation.
How To Get: Outrun the Shadow (red-black ghost) (hint: keep running and look for an exit door). Once you are in The Prison area for the first time (and you turn around and a box blocks the door), the achievement will unlock.
Achievement Description: Achieve the ultimate goal.
How To Get: Unlock the Awakening ending. To do that, outrun the Shadow (red-black ghost) after the small candle area (where candles light up to lead you to your path). Enter the code on the access panel.(the final number revealed after obtaining the Pipe Room Key on the crate while running, and opening the pipe room with the key.) The number is 372 (then key symbol). There are tallies by the numbers to show the order the numbers go in. The number 3 in the pipe room has one tally (1), the number upstairs (which at first looks like an arrow) shows a 7 with two tallies (2), and the final number, 2, is behind the hanged person with three tallies (3).
After entering the code, keep running until you come across an empty chair with a rope. Quickly click the rope. The ending may look like the bad ending (condemned) at first, but it changes. Trust me.
