Getting Grabbed[edit | edit source]

LeftQuote.png If you are grabbed by an enemy, try not to panic! It takes a little time for them to push you to the ground. Pressing Controls / Controls / Controls will automatically use an escape item if you have one (Flash Bang, Tranquilizer, or Stun gun). If not, it will push the enemy away, but that will hurt you!

Unarmed Attack[edit | edit source]

LeftQuote.png Even without an item, we can still fight back! Approach an enemy from behind and when you see the "Grab" prompt hold Controls / Controls / Controls to leap onto their back. By holding down Controls / Controls / Controls you will eventually bring the enemy to their knees where you can pin them! To pin an enemy, (Hold) Controls / Controls / Controls or approach a downed enemy and hold (Hold) Controls / Controls / Controls. When you let go, they will eventually get back up so watch out!

Getting Dragged[edit | edit source]

LeftQuote.png Uh oh! You are being dragged because you had no escape item or were to injured to push the enemy away. You can still escape! Watch for passing trash bags or pile. They will glow orange. You can look around and move a bit when you are dragged. Search them wen you see the prompt and you might find an escape item! When you find one, use it with Controls / Controls / Controls.

Local Teen Vanishes. Parents of Isabela Madi-Shaw Plead For Safe Return[edit | edit source]

LeftQuote.png "We just want her home safe." Redacre residents Bryson Shaw and Zaina Madi-Shaw are living every parents worst nightmare...

...were enjoying a quiet evening out before tragedy struck. "We even spoke with Bells during dinner,", Zaina said. "She seemed a little...

...good grades and was always well behaved. "Lately she had been a little obsessed with her mom's job," admitted Bryson. "She really...

...will recall for some the rash of disappearances referred to locally as the "Redacre Runaways". It has never been determined what led to the children vanishing...

...have very little to go on, so they are exploring all possibilities. "If anyone knows anything at all, we want to hear it," said chief Santos. "Bells'...

...in particular should come...".

Divers Search Waters Beneath Hoadly's Leap. No New Leads In Teen's Disappearance[edit | edit source]

LeftQuote.png The ongoing search for local teen Isabela Madi-Shaw has moved to the notoriously difficult waters under Hoadly's Leap. This is not the first time Lake Tolmie has been investigated when someone has gone missing, but as yet it has never revealed its secrets.

While parents Bryson Shaw and Zaina Madi-Shaw remain adamant that Isabela (who commonly went by "Bells") would never harm herself, the local authorities now feel that all avenues must be explored. "We have no indications that there was any foul play in Bells' disappearance," police chief Ray Santos said in a recent statement. "At this point we must assume that she has run away from home or, horrible as the thought is, become a victim of self harm, something that is affecting far too many of our community's youth."

The search is expected to continue for the next few days, possibly up to a week. Divers report that visibility is extremely poor and do not seem very optimistic that they will find mind. "We're not going to find anything," local volunteer Lenka Staneck said. (continued page 12)

Information Table[edit | edit source]

Acoustic Mines[edit | edit source]

Main article: Acoustic Mine
LeftQuote.png Looks like we got their attention! Those veils sleepers have started putting these loud-ass things all over. Get close and it starts to holler, so watch your step! (and no, Dax, we're still not calling them "squeakers").

Good news is, we've been experimenting on a few we managed to snag.

FOAM - Totally gums it up, all night, you can just walk right past it at that point.

FLASHBANG - Overloads the circuits for a short time, but it eventually...reboots? Be fast.

Crossbow - Firing a dart at it seems to cause a nasty failure, then it pops! Takes it out, but makes a lot of noise.

Speed Traps[edit | edit source]

Main article: Speed Trap
LeftQuote.png Sup, Speed freaks! (Chill, DAX, Redacre is so sober it's scary. If you're like me, sometimes you just wake up in a dead sprint, no idea why. Time to watch your step, starting now. This little thing put about a jillion volts into my ass - if there had been any of those creeps nearby, well, you wouldn't be reading this.

If you're moving fast enough, this 'speed trap' throws some kind of charge in every direction. Good news is, they are pretty easy to take apart, just get close (slowly!) and disarm it.

Similar guts to an acoustic mine, we figure - foam, flash bang, darts all work on them. So if you're sticking with fast & loud, I hope you can shoot from the hip!

An Experiment[edit | edit source]

A note that was added in Early Access Update #6, explaining the context of the Find The Missing Drone and Recover the Chorus Binder objectives. It was later replaced by A Fine Mess in Early Access Update #7.

LeftQuote.png First up, they're watching us. Our families, I mean. We knew that, but now we know, these observation reports prove it. They stash them in weird places, too, some are way out of our reach.

Which brings me to my next concern. Dax says he has a plan for that. What I say is: UH-OH.

I said it once before, when he used his frigging DRONE to bring me a cup of bad cocoa that I did not ask for. I swear I can still smell it on my hair. Now Dax thinks he can get his dumb drone to steal these reports for us. UH OH.

I am honestly worried about him. I know Dax and Bells bonded over that stupid robot arm, and YES, I get that we all grieve in different ways. But Dax, if you read this: all I'm saying is...there are things machines weren't meant to "handle".

A Fine Mess[edit | edit source]

A note that was added in Early Access Update #7, explaining the context of the Hide Evidence and Bag Up the Dead Bird objective. It was later replaced by PJ Party in the December 2019 Update.

LeftQuote.png Hey, y'all. Going to keep this one short. For some of us, the blackouts are getting worse. You need to find a buddy to watch you when you sleep. Tell them what to do if you...'go under'. The rules are different with every Voice.

One of us, not going to shame them - is hosting a voice that definitely, super duper doesn't care if any of us live, or even if we can beat CHORUS or whatever's behind them. I just wants revenge we think. It...this, person, has woken up with bloody feathers in their mouth. They think they might have hurt a white bird, or more than one, like a symbol of war that only makes sense to the voices.

It is SAVAGE. You may trip over the mess it left. If you can, please, please, please clean it up...this member thinks that CHORUS already has suspicions. And if they ID this kid, they won't just put her back to sleep. She thinks they'll kill her.

PJ Party[edit | edit source]

The table showing the PJ Party information

New equipment was placed on the table in the December Update explaining the context of the Plant Cancelers and Deliver Parents objective..

LeftQuote.png Honestly, y'all... for some reason, not sure why, some of us in this freezing boxcar are a bit depressed! Even in the day, our parents... uh. The ones who are Sleepers at night, try to talk to them about something real and they just smile and free like one of those cardboard standees at the rental place. We're sick of it. We want our parents back. At least for one good hour to mutually annoy each other without that evil lullaby in their brains.

T-M-C says he can help. When he's not shouting at me to QUESTION ALL ANSWERS. Or... did I dream that? Point is, I wired these headphones up with the noise pattern he taught me. I don't know how long it'll last, but he says we trigger it, it'll KO our parents. Then we move to a safe spot and... god, tell them they're grounded? If we had even one adult working for us, on the inside...

Exorcism Kit[edit | edit source]

The table showing the Exorcism Kit information

No information is provided at the table in the Cursed Update to explain the context of the Set up Exorcism Kit objective, but the Exorcism Kit is shown on the table with one of the masks.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • It is presumed either Gwen or Dax has written and created the posters and notes found in the Hideout, judging by the tone and reference to one another in notes.
