Part 42: 06:40 PM

Music: Same as previous updates

The quit button here won't work. We have to return the bookmark AND ask the question.

Melissa locked herself in Room 218. We can't enter the roof now. So we have to find Louie.


Wiring? Why? You want me to tap somebody's phone or something?

I love that that's his first thought.

Ha ha ha ha! Man, stop thinkin' like a cop, will ya?

I need ya to fix some electrical wiring on the switchboard.


Yup. We gotta fix the switchboard and get power to Room 218.

What're you talking about?

Then everything else proceeds as normal, but I feel like we're forgetting something...

Oh, right. We can only examine the podium when Louie isn't there. Which means we can examine it in chapter 3 between meeting Helen and reading the engraving on the pen. We can also examine it when Louie's with us (right now).

You guys talked about Kyle being rude. Well, we're about to see how rude he can get.

Just a reminder, during confrontations not pressing will just loop indefinitely.

Stop being so selfish!

Stop being so selfish.

You get scolded for something?

Just be thankful you got someone to care about what you're doing. Lots of kids don't even have parents. Don't be a brat.

You don't understand anything, mister! And you don't understand anything about me!

Yeah, you're right. I don't know how you feel.


I got no idea. That's why I'm asking you right now. So talk.

Loop and skip.

You're wrong. He knows.

Give your dad some credit, kid. He'll know what it means.

You know, your old man's got a tough job. Takes smarts to be a sawbones. I bet he knows all kinds of stuff.

I bet he doesn't!! He doesn't know anything! Especially not about my mom and me!

Hey, kid?


When I was a kid, I was just like you.

You were a kid?

Yeah. Your dad was too.

No way!

It's true. But once you grow up, you forget what it's like. So yeah. I don't know why you're upset. No clue. But I'm trying to find out. And that's why I'm talking to you now. So why don't you ask your dad?

Loop and skip.

Is this the first time you've stayed here?

My dad said it was the first time.


Hey, kid. Tell me that again, will you?

Loop and skip.

Those aren't so bad, right? Only the first choice is rude. Well, that's about to change. We're about to be cruel.

Know why your dad lied?

He enjoys tricking you!

He wanted you to feel like a fool! I bet he's laughing it up right now...

He's...he's terrible! I hate him!

Know why your mom left?

It's your fault!

Yeah, totally your fault. Nice one, kid. Way to ruin your dad's life.


Let's talk about your mom leaving.

Your dad's clueless!

Your dad's got no clue. I bet he's just here for the bar.


Music: Countdown


For some reason Melissa's last line automatically advances. Maybe to show Kyle cutting her off.

You're a JERK!


You don't understand anything about me! You're a big jerk and I hate you!!!



I...sniff...I never...

I never, ever want to be a grown-up like you! NEVER! WHAAAAAAAA!!

Nice, Hyde. Real nice.

Music: Sunset Men
I returned to Room 215.

Wow, that could have gone better. You're a real class act, Hyde.

Always screwing things up just like this... Hell, who are you kidding? You'll never find Bradley.

You're a total loser, Hyde. Always have been. Always will be.

Hyde spent the rest of the night brooding in his room.

Louie: 5
Rosa: 3
Dunning: 3
Martin: 2
Melissa: 2
Iris: 1

I actually laugh at this. Kyle's being extremely cruel and then realizing that it could've gone better. No shit. I couldn't make any of that up.

No wonder they cause a game over. Well, actually only the second question causes a game over. As long as he doesn't blame Melissa for her mother disappearance Kyle can be as cruel as he wants.

Music: Sapu

The roof won't open until we ask Kevin this question. The quit button here also doesn't work. That seems to be a theme lately... Also, that gray question have disappeared (I didn't actually ask them, I just showed them off).

I came to see you.

Just wanted to find you.

Thought maybe we could chat for a bit.

...Pardon? You came to see me? Why on earth... Were you...were you FOLLOWING me? GO AWAY!

This should've been more famous than paperclip.

Iris turns and scampers off the rooftop.

You were smiling. Of course she'll be freaked out.

Next time: Chapter 4!
