Corpse-Party

by DarkHamsterlord

Part 9

Music: Main Theme 3



Once Satoshi's group crosses the invisible walkway in the Music Hall of Rotten Flesh, we're automatically switched back to Yoshiki and Ayumi. I've hit the current "end" of their path, and now need to get this party caught up.



We take Yoshiki and Ayumi downstairs, and way down here.



They added a nice little bridge here for us, so we don't have to cross through the classrooms anymore. It's a nice little quality of life thing that's kind of surprising considering how much this game likes to make you go back and forth through places you've already been.

Music: None



We keep going east and arrive at the incinerator...but we still don't know the order to press the buttons in.




Acquired [Security Guard Key]

...I know you have no choice, but... hang in there...



After giving us the key, the girl in red vanishes.

Yes, they made us come all the way to this arbitrary dead end to trigger this scene that could have happened anywhere and get a key, and now we get to backtrack back out of this dead end.


Music: Main Theme 3



This guy sends us to a different place now, and it's actually right where we want to be, so we talk to him and accept his offer.



It takes us right here to the security guard rooms! And now we have the key, so we set about unlocking them.



First we unlock Security Guard Room 1, on the left, and enter.

Music: Horror



It's too dark to see in here, so we have to feel around for a light switch.



As we grope around in the dark the areas we touch are "lit up" to let you get a feel for the room, but if you try to look through any cabinets or anything, it's too dark to see.



The switch is right here next to the cabinets. We flip it.

Music: None



And we can see! We set about looking through the cabinets.



-- Letter #07 --

"Ribbon? What ribbon? You mean ours?"
"That's right. With your yellow ribbon in..."



Looking closely, you can see small insects crawling all over it...

This school has a ton of cabinets full of hair in it. They're very common in the remake too.



Acquired [Yellow Ribbon]



The yellow ribbon is the reason we have to come into this room. The letter is a useful hint as well, if you don't already know what to do. We exit the room.



And next, we open the second door and head inside.

Music: Horror



This room is dark too, of course.



We flip this switch, but nothing happens...



This switch over here is the one that turns the lights on.

Music: None



Not as much in this room. We check the cabinet.



-- Letter #08 --

"...hand, stick it into the incinerator."
"EH?! But isn't that dangerous!?"
"Yeah, it is. But it's what we have to do."



After reading that letter, we head through the door to the north.



A long hallway with two cabinets at the end.



-- Letter #05 --

"...After that, left-most, center, then the second one from the right, and finally the second one from the left."



-- Letter #09 --

"Wh-what just happened?"
"Like I said... ...zaki from Class 2-9 suddenly appeared!"
"Ahh...you mean that girl who went missing a year ago? She..."

-- Letter #10 --

"...told you her name?"
"Her body... It was burnt up..."
"I'm asking you who she is! Did you get her name!?"
"You really want to know?"
"Y-Yeah..."
"It was... Class 2-9's... Shino..."



And now we've read all ten letters. Here's the full conversation in one place, for convenience's sake:

"By the basement, there is an incinerator."
"There is? So what should we do?"
"On the wall, next to the poster, there is a secret button."
"...Next to the poster? What on earth is this secret?"
"Uhm, yeah... There is a lot of them, but I think you have to press them in a certain order."
"You know which ones to press? Tell me!"
"Alright, uhm... First you press the right-most one. After that, left-most, center, then the second one from the right, and finally the second one from the left."
"What now?"
"After that, you need to hold onto the ribbon and--"
"Ribbon? What ribbon? You mean ours?"
"That's right. With your yellow ribbon in hand, stick it into the incinerator."
"EH?! But isn't that dangerous!?"
"Yeah, it is. But it's what we have to do."
"Wh-what just happened?"
"Like I said... ...zaki from Class 2-9 suddenly appeared!"
"Ahh...you mean that girl who went missing a year ago? She told you her name?"
"Her body... It was burnt up..."
"I'm asking you who she is! Did you get her name!?"
"You really want to know?"
"Y-Yeah..."
"It was... Class 2-9's... Shino..."



And with that, we exit the security guard room. Now that we've got the combination to the incinerator and the yellow ribbon, we head all the way back to the incinerator.



And we press the buttons in the order listed in letters 4 and 5. Right-most, left-most, center, second from right, second from left.

After pressing all five switches, we examine the incinerator.




-- Use [Yellow Ribbon]? --

Yes

No

What will you do with the incinerator?



2: Hold your hand out and enter the incinerator?

Yes
No

3: While holding the [Yellow Ribbon], stick your hand in the incinerator?

Yes

No

For completion's sake, there are two other incorrect options if we say no to this one. They are "Toss Ayumi's red ribbon in the incinerator?" and "Search the soot for another ribbon and toss it in?"

I'll be showing what happens if we get it wrong in a later update.


Music: Terror



After pressing the switches in the correct order and doing the correct thing with the ribbon, a pathway extends out of the rear of the incinerator.



-- Keep going? --

Yes

No

Music: None



Yoshiki and Ayumi climb into the incinerator and start walking along the path.









Yoshiki and Ayumi continue into the room at the end of the pathway, and the screen fades to black.



...You kept going, despite my warnings...Kyahahaha! Bye-bye...

Sound Effect: Bye Bye
