For Sense – A Cyberpunk Ghost Story players, this guide is a full walkthrough and it contains spoiler since it’s unavoidablem if you don’t mind, let’s get started now.
Note : At the end of the guide, I will try to put a section for the Shinrei Shashin locations, costumes and a NG+ section for the secrets. So if you’re looking for those they will be at the end. I’ll compelete the guide when I finished the second play through.
Subway, City, and Club
We start off in a subway car. 1: Pick up the PDA 2: interact with the poster on the left twice, the 2nd time Mei takes a photo. Now interact with the doors and just wait for the subway to arrive. (Note: When given the option to go home or go on date selecting “Go home” will just end the game).
1st city block: not much to do here, just some talking and a lady smoking a cigarette who you can lend your lighter.
2nd city block: When you get to the club some lady bumps you and knocks your id under the car. Talk to the bouncer then look at the car. Go talk to the guy with the green jacket and sunglasses at the entrance to this zone. Collect the 5 joss ingots lying around and burn them at the altar next to the guy kneeling down. Talk to him again to move his car. Now get your id and go into the club.
Club: Talk to people, then talk to the bartender twice, then walk away from her. Mei’s eyes go crazy, talk to the bartender again, then go to the bathroom.
Entrance and Leasing Office
Now the fun begins, pick up the bobby pin to the left (by the trash bags). Pick the lock on the storage closet to the far right, grab both items from the closet. Put the stool under the window to the far right, break the window with the pipe, grab the key. Now break the chains on the door using the pipe (requires multiple interacts) and continue on.
Leasing Office: Interact with the elevator button to the left, this will open a mailbox, pry it open and grab the key. Use the key to open the office to the right, remove the burnt fuse and move the other fuse to a different spot. Examine the desk, examine the couch, examine the painting by the elevator (the one with a bloody bullet hole), take the wire then use it to grab the pen under the couch. Use the pen on the desk to open it, take the key, open the last mailbox for another key. When you go to the office a ghost attacks and the door shuts to keep him out. Open the top drawer of the filing cabinet (The other 2 will become available later in the game). Grab the fuse and letter opener, put the fuse in the box. Run past the ghost (There’s a quicktime button press to get past him, so be ready). Then mash the elevator button repeatedly until the elevator arrives (Or don’t, the developers made this part easier, now the elevator arrives regardless).
Apt 204: Go to the left and examine the door to room 204, use the letter opener to open it. Examine the workbench to find out about the key maker. Then open the closet door to find the hole that leads into the walls. Get the offering cup on the shelf, open the cat bank for a gacha coin, there’s also a note here. Examine the peephole for a cutscene. Note: The ghost here won’t kill you but he will steal your stuff if he touches you, just return here to retrieve the stolen stuff. Return to the room and examine the phone on the wall to get a picture and the 2nd piece of the note. Examine the bookshelf next to the entrance door to discover the lockbox.
(Note: I’m not actually sure what the event order is to get this part to work, so you may have to come back to the key machine at some point to get the code prompt.)
(Another note: Save before you mess with this thing, my game bugged out and locked me into the code prompt, luckily I already knew the code but I couldnt exit it.)
Hallway: Go to the left more for a cutscene then continue on, examine the door with the Fu on it a couple times to learn you can hide there. Examine 201 to learn you need the key. Return to the leasing office.
Office: Use the screwdriver on the hole in the wall behind the picture you removed the wire from to get a key. Then use the screwdriver again the break open the 2nd drawer of the filing cabinet. Return to the 2nd floor to open the door to 201.
201, Managers apt.: Examine the oven for the wok. Examine the post-it board for a map. Examine the desk for the key to 205. Enter the bedroom. Examine the nightstands a few times to find a betamax tape, examine the altar on the far right to learn about the picture frame. Examine the wardrobe by the door to find a picture piece. Examine the painting of the soldier in the main room for another piece, and the post-it board for the final piece, Examine the desk to tape them together, then place the photo in the bedroom frame. Place the offering cup on the altar as well, then grab the cup on the table in the main room, fill the cup with rice from the sack by the oven. Leave the apartment and grab the joss sticks off the altar outside the room. Return to the room and the ghost will be there, leave and hide in the door with the Fu on it. Be ready for a quicktime/button pressing mini game thing as he walks by. Return to the room again and place the sticks on the altar, go back to the main room and examine the small table at the foreground for a lighter, return to the bedroom to light the sticks.
204: (Note: Good spot to save again if you haven’t. My game bugged out again here and no matter how long I waited the key never cooled enough to pick up. This caused me to be locked in the room because you can’t leave until its cooled.) Place the wok on the stove, now go to the leasing office and grab the lead (Or is it pewter? Or maybe zinc? Hmm, text changes a lot on this one…) taoist statue on the table next to the shrine. Return to 204 and melt it down, wait a while for it to melt. Then pour it into the key machine. Wait a while for it to cool, then get the key. There’s also a jade bangle in the hole closet.
206: Use the new key to get in. Interact with the ghost policeman and little girl at the far right. Then pick up the documents on the table. Grab the finger key on the bed. Look around a bit then leave. Ignore the hellscape that you end up in grab the betamax on the table, then just keep walking to get out.
204: Return here and place some offerings on the little table by the window with the picture to get rid of the ghost outside. Now you can access the elevator by the manager’s apartment. After opening the doors and examining the elevator return to the hole closet and pick up the plastic crate. Place it at the elevator to reach the 3rd floor.
3rd Floor and Other half of the 1st Floor
301: To the left of the elevator, not much to do here yet. Examine the window to see the padlock. Stay away from the crows or they’ll kill you. Go back out and examine the storage room door to learn about the key.
304: Going around to the right there’s 2 doors leading to 304, the first one is jammed/locked. The 2nd door has 2 statues and an offering jar. Pick up the jar and examine the statue on the right a few times to find an opening on the bottom. Use the gacha coin from earlier to open it and retrieve the key. Enter the apartment. Grab the shoelaces from the sneakers on the floor to the right. Try to open the right bedroom door. Next to the refridgerator is a note and an ice cream scoop. Grab them both. Examine the broken circle door at the center of the room to discover it’s missing pieces. Grab the 1st piece on the tables to the left. There’s some more offering cups and sticks on the table further left. Examine the desk and calendar for some notes/clues. Enter the bedroom 2nd from the left. Inside is a jade bangle, a betamax tape and some more notes. It’s a good time to save here. After you leave the room the little ghost girl will approach you to play rock, paper, scissors. If you decline you die, so just play. Not sure if you can lose or what happens if you do, which is why I recommended saving. After you win she makes the floor and ceiling collapse and you fall into the 1st floor break room.
Break room: Examine the rubble, turn on the tv, examine the various notes in the room, then continue left. In the salon grab the paper clip off the desk, then examine the lucky cat for a key. Examine the sink with the cracked mirror and use the paper clip to grab the tape. Grab the broom a little further left. There’s also a bangle on the table if needed. Head back and go to the laundry room.
Laundry room: Use the key from the salon to unlock it. First is the door with the colors on it.
Examine the vending machine. Then examine the money machine on the wall for some coins. Then move left examining all the laundry machines and couch for more coins.
Return to the break room and use the broom to push the rubble. Examine the electrified puddle. Go back to the salon and get the remaining coins from the register, then grab the rubber mat in front of the cracked mirror. Return to the laundry room vending machine, buy anything except for soda and you’ll get a free can of water too (Buying soda kills you). Return to the rubble and place the floor mat down, now you’re back in the leasing office. There’s another cassette tape in the desk. You can play the 2 you’ve gotten in the salon room, but I’m not sure what their purpose is. Now return to the 2nd floor. Go to 201 and retrieve the storage room key from the manager’s desk. Go back to the 3rd floor.
Storage room: Suk Yi will be hiding in here, you can play hide and seek with her. Her first hiding spot is just to the right of the backpack. Look at the combo lockbox.
Move the chair by the door then to the spot, examine the box. Examine another box further to the right, then the final box for the locket. There’s also a tv in here to save.
304: The left door is now opened. Enter the bedroom on the left and grab the picture on the dresser to the right. Go into Suk Yi’s room on the right which is also now open. Grab the bouncy ball on the floor. Then place the photo and offerings on the table to the right.
306: Grab the plastic bottle on the table. Examine the bookshelf for a betamax tape. Then examine the desk for the staple remover and some notes. Examine the box next to the desk for firecrackers.
301: Use the firecrackers to scare away the crows, grab the bottle of oil on the far right. Return to the 1st floor closet in the laundry room to fill the plastic bottle with acid. Then use the acid and can of water on the window lock. This gives access to the 4th floor which I’ll get to later.
306: Return to 306 and use the oil on the body bag. Examine the sink on the left for the first eye, check under it first to turn off the garbage disposal. Examine the pig head for the 2nd eye. Examine the bin next to the dresser for the tongue. Then finally the fish statue next to the bed for the ears. Don’t worry about the ghost, he doesn’t bite. Finally put the pieces back on the corpse. Make the offerings, then take the box knife.
Return to the storage room to open the box then move to the 4th floor through the window.
Hallway: Only one way to go, cross the hole in the floor, watch out for the quicktime event. Then continue on around the next corner for the tripwire. Just spam interact button as you approach it until you get the prompt. Then do it again until you can throw the rubber ball.
405: Read the letters on the floor. Grab the offering cup on the table. Pick up the hair pin in the middle of the room. Grab the sticks on the table next to the doll.
403: Grab the ID card from the coat by the door. Enter the bedroom and examine stuff and move the wardrobe. Don’t worry about the door yet though. Return to the main room and examine the book case. Examine the sink and the note next to it. Go into the bathroom and retrieve the rubber gloves. Examine the desk, grab the xray, then put it on the xray viewer above the desk.
Back down to the storage room use the hair pin on the last lockbox. to get the scissors and comb.
3rd floor stuff: Place the pieces of the mirror door back on then examine it to find you need HG80. Go to room 306 and onto the balcony. Examine the thermometer holder then the railing to find the thermometer. Return to 304 for the ruler in the backpack on the floor and the storage room for the backscratcher. Then come back and use them together to get the thermometer. Go to the puzzle door and play the minigame. Once inside follow the ghost’s instructions, grab the offering cup and sticks on the left side. After you leave the room you’ll have to fight 3 small demons, so you may want to save before leaving.
405: Before coming in here make sure to cut the hair on the door in the hall before this one. Cut the hair in front of the divider. Move the divider. A cutscene will happen when you move in front of the mirror. Now for the hair door on the left. You have to use the scissors to cut the strands in the right order.
Answer: Top left, right, bottom left, top right.
Examine the closet on the left twice to get the photo and kunai. Return to the room and cut the hair on the doll to get the tape and key. Use the key on the filing cabinet in the center of the room to get the other half of the photo and the tape. Use the kunai on the hair by the door to get the strainer. Return to the bedroom and play the tape in the tv. In the main room take the kimono off the wall and put it in the trunk, along with the comb and scissors. Return to the bedroom and make an offering on the dresser.
403: Use the gloves and strainer on the sink. Use the wax seal on the desk, then put the book in the 4th place on the shelf. Time for the wardrobe door.
Drop down a save here, things are about to get fun. When you enter the room and examine stuff the crazy doctor ghost will attack you, triggering a cutscene where you lose a bangle. Hurry and exit the room, leave the apartment, and run to the right until you reach the elevator near 405. Interact with it to trap him in the elevator. Return to the secret room and perform the exorcism. Pick up the drill. Return to the elevator where you trapped the doctor and drill out the door next to it.
506: Not much to do in this room yet, head to the left and go into the bedroom. Search the bed for a note. Search the wardrobe on the left to use the bikini key from the entrance to get an outfit. Search the makeup stand on the right for a Fu and a seam ripper. Return to the main room. Now go to the spice cabinet for a puzzle.
Hint 1: Maybe you should sleep on it, then the answer might come to you.
Hint 2: Wonder how much this thing weighs?
Answer: Fenugreek, Dong Quai, Ginger, Tang Kuei, Dong Quai
Inside will be a key and a jade bangle. Now go back to the bedroom and use the key to unlock the closet door. Drop down a save then examine the mannequin on the chair. Go back to the main room and fight off all the dolls that attack. Examine the bookshelf after you fight them for a photo. Return to the closet. place the photo on the wall, and seal the doll to the chair with a Fu. You can try to make an offering but this doesn’t do anything for now. Head back and go left to the balcony, use the chair to cross the catwalk.
501: Examine the wardrobe on the right for a betamax tape with paper bits stuck in it. Examine the nightstand for a journal with more paper bits. Head out to the main room. Examine the jacket hanging on the coat rack in the center, use the seam ripper to get a letter and a feather key. Grab the offering cup on the table. Use the feather key on the bird cage to the right to get the crank handle and more paper. Use the crank handle on the window to get more paper bits. Examine the refridgerator for another paper piece. Examine the trash can by the door for more paper. Leave through the door.
503: Examine the catwalk, then go inside. Examine the pile of paper next to the door for a note. Use the bag of rice to fill the cup from earlier. Play the tape from earlier in the TV to get more paper (Are we done collecting this crap yet???). Go to the bedroom on the left. Examine the nightstand for a betamax tape. There’s also a jade bangle on the dresser. Leave the apartment and go back to the hall, grab the door leaning against the wall then grab the cat toy by the big hole in the floor.
501: Go to the bedroom, after the bed finishes moving examine the hidden lockbox in the left corner. Take the pry bar and open the lockbox.
Hint 1: I feel like there’s a special event tomorrow, hmm…
Hint 2: Everyone gets one when they’re born. I wonder what Sally’s is?
Bonus hint (because it took me a minute to figure out what I was doing wrong): Don’t forget to do your math.
Answer: 53161 (05/31/1961)
This gives you a note and a bracelet.
503: Return to the bedroom in 503, use the prybar on the loose floorboards to the left. Get the jade brooch and the notes. Grab the cookie tin on top of the fridge in the main room. You’ll get a gun.
506: Return to the balcony and use the door to get back across the catwalk. Return to the closet and place the bracelet on the doll, then do an offering. Retrieve the journal and pocket watch from the drawer that opens.
505: Use the cat toy to get rid of the cats guarding the door. Go to the 2nd room on the left (first door from the right). Get the journal under the bed and the cat toy on the dresser to the left. Go back out and into the bathroom on the far left. Get the hidden blade from the toilet. Examine the medicine cabinet for a note. There’s another jade bangle next to the toilet. Head back to the main room and use the cat toy to distract the cat hiding in the cat climber. Get the knife handle to combine with the blade. Don’t open the trunk in the bedroom yet, or it will trigger the ghost. Grab the kettle (teapot) from 506, then fill it from the waterfall on the catwalk. Return to 505 and put the kettle on the stove.
501: Return to the bedroom to make the final offering for this floor. However the ghost will stop. Leave and go to the hole in the 5th floor hallway and he will lift you to the next floor.
Boss fight: The boss fight is rather easy, use interact to throw ashes at him so he falls, then hit him with your sword. He moves to 3 different locations in the room. Left, Center, and Right. The idea is to wait for him where he’s going to be, don’t chase him because he’ll cast the fireballs before you can reach him. You only have to hit him 3 times to defeat him.
He starts in the center of the room right on top of you, be quick and throw ashes at him then hit him. Then he will move to the right, then back to the center, then to the left, and back to the right. I experimented repeatedly and his pattern is always the same. I didn’t go past 4 moves though because he should be defeated easily before this point.
After you beat the boss, examine the table in the foreground in front of the stairs. You will get a warding Fu. Return to the elevator and use your new Taomu to destroy the growth blocking the elevator. Then go back to the leasing office and get the key from the filing cabinet.
606: Use the key now, grab the warding rice on the table at the center. Go up the stairs and enter the room on the far right first. Pick up the PDA. Examine the dresser on the right for a letter opener, then examine the mirror for the other half of the scroll from 601. Now the left room. There’s a bangle on top of the head of the bed. Grab the journal, then quickly leave and run back to the right room. Examine the suitcase on the bed.
Hint 1: 1st Sally now Fei Fei.
Hint 2: A father’s duty begins
This gives you a note with a combo and a magazine for the gun you got from 503. Make an offering on the table to the right. Return and go downstairs to get the glass orb dropped by the ghost. Use the letter opener on the fan vent by the door to get the tiger key. Go back upstairs to the middle door and open it with the tiger key. Examine the desk for a letter, then use the glass orb on the tiger statue for a bamboo tile. Examine the picture on the left to find a hidden wall safe.
Hint 1: You were paying attention…right? If not, you could just trial and error this.
Hint 2: Like father, like daughter.
Note: if you’re going left 03, this is actually a typo and should be left 30.
Answer: Left 30, Right 10, Left 06, Right 07 (Might be 30, 10, 60, 70.(Correction by Dracology))
Note: When you hit a correct number there’s a click, but if you go slightly too far it’ll click again and reset. So if you hear 2 clicks rapidly you gotta restart, so go slow.
Retrieve the skeleton key and then examine again for some offering supplies. Return to the room on the left. Open the wardrobe on the left with the key. Then solve the puzzle.
Solution: Just slide the 3 bottom right pieces until they’re fixed.
This will give you the white tiger ring. Return to the elevator in the center of the hallway next to the hole in the floor. This will take you to the 7th and final floor.
Boss fight:Similar to the one on the 6th floor in room 601. She has 3 attacks, 1st she sends out a ghost which will just shove you away. Then she shoots at flesh balls into the ground that turn into arms and hit you. Finally she shoots fireballs everywhere which do…nothing? Seriously getting hit by these doesn’t seem to have any effect.(perhaps a bug?)
Her pattern is: center, left, center, right. She doesn’t move until you hit her and will start repeating her attack pattern(I think), so the fight ends after you hit her on the right.
After that you beat the game on normal mode. There’s an epilogue section but I don’t think that needs a guide so I’m going to skip that. There’s also a mini-story that gets unlocked to give you some background on the game, but again it doesn’t really need a guide.
