Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward

by Fedule

Part 10: Floor B

VLR OST: [Placidity]

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

Do you think it works?

Donno. Only one way to find out, though...

Hey. Someone's coming.

*Pant* *Pant* *Pant*

What's going on here?

We ran into them a little bit ago.
Well, not literally, of course.

I donno, with a prow like that I imagine you run into a lot of things.

Lemme see the map.

Oh... sure.

...Ah, I get it.
All three routes end up here.

Listen in: [English/Japanese]


That so?
We found ours in the lounge.

Hmm... Maybe we should sit down for a bit and exchange information.

No. There's plenty of time for that after we check out this elevator.

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

These doors have colors on them too.

Are these Chromatic Doors?
Look, there's a box here. It looks like the ones we saw earlier.

...Yeah. Won't budge.

Is something wrong, Alice? You've been staring at your bracelet.


No, I'm fine. But it looks like my guess was right... The numbers have changed.

Oh, yeah, the time left.

You're telling me we're gonna have to just sit around here for another two hours?

Looks like we don't have a choice, then. We gotta head back.


Oh? Did it say something like "Supplementary Rules"?
Because if it did, we have one too. We found ours in the infirmary.

Yeah, we found one too. It was in a safe in the lounge...

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

I don't think Zero's saying we can.. I think he's saying we have to.
Otherwise what's the point of that key card?

You mean this? The Ambidex Room key?

That makes six, then. One for each AB Room.

So when Zero says "Jump", we say "How high", huh?

A stupid, angry mutt watching the door sounds about right.

Asshole... Better hope I don't have rabies, you self-satisfied old turd.

Well, what's it going to be? Are you going to go back with us? Or are you staying here by yourself?

All right, fine. I'm going.

At this point we engage in a whole mess of sequences of doors opening and dots sliding around maps. After that, we see a named door opening, and immediately after that:

So I'm just going to cut all that shit out, if it's all the same to you.

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

It would seem Zero's notes were telling the truth. Getting back here was easy enough.

Or the crew quarters.

It's some of your favorite scotch.

(Whoa, hold on... "Grandpa?")
(Since when were they buddies?)
(Or had they always been that close?)

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

Soon as we get out of here I can drink all the scotch I want.
And you can drink all the root beer floats you can stomach.

What?! You're gonna get me a root beer float?!
But... Are... are you sure? Do you have enough money...?

Oh, ye of little faith...
I found an old factory full of rare earth metals the other day...


Listen in: (recommended!) [English/Japanese]

You were taking so long I hopped off for a little nap.

Oh for... Yawning? Really?
You're just a computer program. You don't get tired!

Hey, B.O.
My temper's got a hare-trigger, and you're awfully close to pulling it.
So, I'd watch my mouth if I were you.
Otherwise.. Well, do you really need me to spell it out?

Forget it...

That's a good boy.

[Music fades out]

Namely, how do you get more BP?

VLR OST: [Eeriness]

We go into the AB Rooms, right?

K and Quark have two each, so we've got six all together.

But.. who goes into what room?

But there are only six rooms.

Didn't I tell you? The two members of a pair share the same destiny.

Then you mean both members of a pair need to go into the same room?

Yes yes yes!

Play a game.
Just like it says on the door...

You play the Ambidex Game!

Wait. What's "Ambidex" supposed to mean anyway?

I would guess it's short for "ambidexterous".
Most use the word to refer to the ability to use both of one's hands, instead of favoring the left or right, but it can also be taken to mean someone who is duplicitous or two-faced.

Well, yes, I guess you could put it that way.

Then what's the Nonary Game?

The Nonary Game is a game where you try to open the number nine door and escape..
The Ambidex Game is just a minigame you play as part of the larger one. Make sense?

Like hell. This shit is confusing.

Is it? Or is it that you're just a few carrots short of a bushel?
What do you think, B.O.?

You arrogant little bastard...

Eeehe he he he...

Weeeeell, that's just how I am, so you better get. Used. To. It.
Now, could I have you all move to the AB Room please?
I'll give you more specifics once everyone's inside.

I think it'll probably be easier to understand that way.

[Music fades out]

Think we should head in too?

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

Why are you asking me? Just hurry up and get in there.

Okay, okay..

An Ambidex Gate has been opened.
Forty-five minutes remain until Ambidex Game polling closes.

This game's got a time limit too...?
