After the initial dialogue, you’re tasked to find objects from the Entity’s past in order to piece together her story. There are six in total and the first one is right below you at the computer screen.
When you leave the room, go straight up to the room in front of you. The next item, 1-year sobriety coin, is there on the table
Third one can be found at the employee’s break room, which is located on your right when you go down the corridor. On the table you can find a bottle of wine.
Keep moving down the corridor and at the end, near the painting, is a doorway. Go through it and you’ll find the object on the table.
The first puzzle is also in this room. In order to find the correct key for keypad, you have to compare the first letter of each name to the E-board located on the nearby wall. The four-digit core can be deduced by counting the amount of E’s compared to the first letter of each name. If you want to skip that, the correct key is 8257.
Go in that room and you’ll find the second to last object, eyeglasses.
On the wall in this room is an eye, which gives you your second objective. You have to find his brothers by deciphering his clue. His clue, brew that make your mind fly, points to the coffee machine located in the employee’s lounge.
After interacting with the coffee machine, an eye appears and points you to the next location, which is the mirror located in the bathroom.
The mirror will give another clue which leads you to the vending machine located near the elevator. The machine will give you the final clue, so you must go to the painting located at the end of the corridor.
The painting will then open up a secret path directly below you. There you’ll find another room that has a big eye in it. Interact with it and Mina will comment that there’s a room behind the eye. In order to dilate the pupil, you have to turn off the lights. Do that and crawl through. There you’ll find the final object, a newspaper clipping.
Leave the room to the corridor and go right. Kiara will be waiting, saying you’re about to face the entity. After going through the door, the boss fight appears. You have to recite her past by telling her what happened based on the objects.
The correct answers to the final fight are as follows.
- Missed the Warning! -sign
- Your eyesight and poor weather
- Was killed at the accident.
After answering the questions correct, you’re then greeted by Kiara congratulating you for your success. But she tells you there’s plenty more to go.
