I'm going to try to post what I learn in each room/route. I want to do it as I do each playthough so my experience of it won't be tainted by memory of other rooms. I'll probably do this in point form, and continue it in the Comments. One person on Twitter mentioned keeping track of everything in Excel XD My memory may be incorrect in some places--I've not been writing things down.

☆★☆★This will be full of spoilers★☆★☆


I've only 'finished' one playthrough, and I didn't even get to finish it because the last bit requires something from another route.

Jumpstart ⇒ Elevator ⇒ Elevator After Escape ⇒ Into the CDs ⇒ Yellow Door ⇒ Infirmary ⇒ Infirmary After Escape ⇒ AB Game Round 1 ⇒ AB Game Round 1 Ally ⇒ Into the CDs ⇒ Blue Door ⇒ Pressure Exchange Chamber ⇒ Pressure Exchange Chamber After Escape ⇒ AB Game Round 2 ⇒ AB Game Round 2 Ally ⇒ Crew Quarters ■LOCK No. 02■ Is there proof it wasn't murder?

→Sigma was kidnapped on December 25TH, 2028.

Elevator After Escape:
→Meet Tenmyouji, Dio, Quark, Luna, Alice, K, & Clover.
→Clover is still unconscious even after escaping the elevator.
→K has amnesia, and seems to be welded into a suit of armour. Sounds like a robot. His bracelet is hooked through the suit though, to attach unseen skin/wrist.
→Zero III gives them nicknames [Siggy, Phido, Alas, Cleaver (as if
referring to the 999 Axe Ending), B.O., Quirk, Tenmyoldie, Moony, and Potassium).
→'K' comes to his mind though he doesn't know his name. Zero III asks his name too.
→Clover is freaked-out over 'Zero' & 'Nonary Game'--Seems to know something about it. "It should be over".
→Alice met Clover a year ago.
→Phi works-out the anagram "WELCOME TO MY KINGDOM!" silly fast.
→Learn that Zero is one of the 9, and Zero III is merely an Artificial
Intelligence created to "facilitate the facility".

→Learn about Chromatic Doors.
→Learn about the Number 9 Door.
→Learn about key cards.
→Learn about pressing both buttons on the bracelet.
→"You can take your Lame-ary Game and shove it up your ass!" leads to learning not playing means death.
→Learn what is inside the bracelet. Needles that can inject Soporil β (an anesthetic from 999) & turbocurarine (a poison that shuts-down the respiratory system). ...Means of a painless death...
→Bracelet Colours:

→Find newspaper article on Radical-6 (a virus that according to the article has reached a pandemic level).

Infirmary After Escape:
→Sigma is a college student who recently had his girlfriend dump him. His computer crapped-out while writing a paper due for a teacher that does not observe Christmas. He went to the school to type it there & drank 5 energy drinks. He got in his car and it wouldn't start, then a strange sound & his car flooded with knock-out gas. He saw Zero behind the car gawking at him through his rear view mirror.

→Learn Luna has a medical license (but is neither a nurse or doctor, and not quite a coroner).
→Learn the ADAM can do diagnosis & autopsys.
→The woman was killed by exsanguination from a stab wound to the heart. Probably from a thin (3mm) knife.
→K is suspected as Clover was still unconscious, and they were the only previous ones in that room.
→K makes a point that since Zero III never reacted to the body, that it must be something planned by Zero (Zero Sr. as they say).

AB Game Round 1:
→Phi 'suggests' choosing Betray.
→Does Rock, Paper, Scissors to pick who chooses (I think you might automatically-win).

→Clover & K pick Betray to Luna's Ally.
→Zero III then finally explains that getting 0 Bracelet Points also
means the death penalty.

→Clover & K act like Luna was stupid for choosing Ally.
→Alice is pissed at Dio.
→Bracelet Colours:
Sigma & Clover = Magenta Pair
Alice & Quark = Yellow Pair
Phi & Luna = Cyan Pair
→Bracelet Points:
Sigma, Phi, Luna, & Alice = 1BP
Dio, Quark, Tenmyouji, Clover, & K = 6BP
→Zero III says that this will probably be the last the group sees of him.
(Infirmary ⇒ Lounge ⇒ Crew Quarters)
→Quark is Tenmyouji's grandson, and they were kidnapped together.
→Tenmyouji won't say where or when they were taken.
→Quark acts confused & stares blankly.

→A lunar eclipse is supposed to happen on December 31ST, 2028 by K showing an Astronomy magazine they found in the Lounge.
→...Dio is perhaps jokingly aroused by Saturn's rings...
→Dio won't say when he was taken.
→The date is guessed to still be Christmas Day.
→K mentions finding a book on Schrodinger's Cat.
→The Radical-6 newspaper article is shown around.
→Everyone seems to not know anything about it (and if it was a real pandemic, wouldn't they know?).
→There is a guess that everyone there is quarantined/infected.
→Dio suggests it's fake, and Phi, Sigma, K, & Luna agree. [The article should be front page news, but the back is plain black (Sigma says that full page advertisements aren't printed on the back of the front page)]
→Sigma confronts Clover & Alice about their conversation he overhead earlier.
→Clover & Alice are 'co-workers'.
→Clover decides she can trust Sigma.
→She admits she was in the last Nonary Game.
→And the first Nonary Game.
→She gives a vague description of what happened in the one from 999 [9 people kidnapped--well 7 since 2 were in on it...make that 9 if you count the other 2 that were kidnapped too (thus clearing the idea that Snake was 'in on' the plot. Of course the writer even said he wasn't, but if it makes things more believable then he guessed you could say he was. I PERSONALLY think he wasn't as why the Hell would he need to be drugged when put in the coffin? Spare clothes could be brought too, and just claim Zero had them made. I think he remembered Kanny!Akane dying because up until solving the sudoku that's what happened. Also just like he didn't recognise Santa's voice due to age, he didn't recognise Akane's--and why would he guess she wasn't really dead? He kept quiet on the past Nonary Game because he really did believe the threats to Clover. Also why would he make a guess at who Zero was, when he could just keep quiet & let the others do so?--He wrongly guessed Santa.).]
→BUT the last Nonary Game did what then Zero meant to, so why play another one?
→But the gasmask & cloak/coat worn was the same...
→Alice & Clover were kidnapped on December 22ND (were they asleep that long?!).
→Tenmyouji rushes in looking for Luna.
→Quark has collapsed.
→Luna scans him, and it's Radical-6.
→Tenmyouji is more sure it can't be than denial would explain.
→Alice mentions hearing about a 'bio-weapon'.
→Axelavir is the anti-viral serum for Radical-6.
→Quark wakes-up, grabs a scalpel, and tries to stab himself in the heart (SO DISTURBING. He yells about needing to escape. His soul needing to escape his body; that he needs to die. Quark is about 9 years-old D:).
→Sigma manages to grab him, and hold him down. Together the group gets the scalpel from him.
→The Soporil β is used to knock Quark out.
→Luna seems to know something about how Radical-6 operates.
→Phi was kidnapped on December 25TH, 2028.
→Luna was also kidnapped on December 25TH, 2028.

Into The CDs:
→They carry Quark to the Blue, Red, & Green Chromatic Doors.
→Alice won't go with Dio, so that leaves 2 Chromatic Door options (I can't remember if you have a jerk choice like with 999's Door 3).

Blue Door:
→Sigma & Clover partner with Tenmyouji.
→Alice & K partner with Quark.
→Phi & Luna partner with Dio.

Pressure Exchange Chamber:
Figures I'd find the save file corrupting PEC room on my first playthough D:
→Learn that the facility required all that entered to wear protective
suits & undergo decompression decontamination first. Due to viral spread concerns.
→The door to the outside is welded shut (and again Clover gets locked on the other side of glass).
→Learn that Tenmyouji knows quite a bit about LASERS.
→Find a memory card.

Pressure Exchange Chamber After Escape:
→More graffiti (I couldn't read it fast enough!)
→Find the White Chromatic Doors.
→Dio activates the Ambidex Doors as soon as he gets to the Warehouse A.
→Phi, Luna, & Dio found a vial of Axelavir in the Laboratory.
→Quark is injected, and his vitals go to seemingly normal--he is still asleep.
→Phi was kidnapped on December 25TH.
→The PEC memory card is played.
→The memory card contains an audio file of a man calling a group stationed on Mars.
→He mentions the (future) December 31ST lunar eclipse. And it being red. Asks how Mar's moons Deimos & Phobos are.
→After no response back for an uncomfortable time, it's learnt that the video feed he is seeing of the Mars group is a hacked loop.
→A woman finally replies saying that 6 of the group are dead.
→That she killed them, and is about to kill 6 billion more.
→There was a mock mission to Mars set-up (9 people in a facility set-up just as it would be if they were in space. Including radio silence.).
→Tenmyouji admits he was somewhat involved in the project.
→The mission had an infection of Radical-6, and it escaped.

AB Game Round 2:
→Sigma gets Tenmyouji to promise to choose Ally.
→Quark being asleep will automatically choose Ally.
→Once inside Clover acts really skankily OOC and tries to seduce Sigma (what would Snake say?!) into choosing Betray (she'd get 9BP).
→Luna trusts Phi to vote for her while she stays in the Infirmary with Quark.

AB Game Round 2 Ally:
→Clover is annoyed Sigma chose Ally.
→Tenmyouji kept his Ally promise.
→Sigma doesn't tell Tenmyouji that he was right with his suggestion that Clover might try to seduce him.
→Alice & K kept their promise to pick Ally to Quark's Ally.
→Phi (voting for Luna too) picked Betray to Dio's Betray.
→Bracelet Colours:
Sigma = Blue Solo
K = Red Solo
Dio = Green Solo
Phi = Magenta Pair
Clover = Cyan Pair
Tenmyouji = Yellow Pair
Alice's, Luna's, & Quark's are unknown.
→Bracelet Points:
Sigma, Luna, & Alice = 3BP
Clover, K, & Quark = 8BP
Phi = 1BP
Dio = 6BP
→Alice apparently takes off after voting--K says she said she felt tired, so probably went to go lay down.
→Tenmyouji has asked Luna to leave the Infirmary.
→Quark is still asleep.
→Tenmyouji keeps a photograh in his pocket.
→Zero did not take the photograph when they took everyone else's possessions.
→Tenmyouji won't tell Sigma anything on said photograph.
→Sigma tries to press Tenmyouji for more details on the Mars mission.
→Tenmyouji makes a statement asking if Sigma really wants to know? Or would he rather not taint his life memories, and view of the world.
→Phi then comes rushing in, looking upset, and tells them they need to come right away to the Crew Quarters & see Alice.

Crew Quarters ■Lock No. 02■ Is there proof it wasn't murder?:
→Alice has been stabbed in the chest with a scalpel.
→She's dead, and her Bracelet lays open beside her [I can't remember what it the display is, or if it is even shown up-close (999's 'bad shit is going down' ominous music plays)].
→Clover freaks-out and accuses everyone of murder.
→The group tries to work-out if it is (no-one suggests what happened to Quark).
→Clover threatens to kill everyone in 10 seconds unless they can prove that it isn't.
→Everyone sputters & tries to calm her down, but her countdown ends.
→Fade to "To Be Continued..."

Rec Room:
→There is luminol in the mini-refrigerator {'refrigerator' reminds me of a German exchange student in my French class immuable group [kinda like a role-play where once a week we tried to live as a French person. The first year I was a little boy in a Paris apartment building (we drew positions out of a hat), and the second I was a female security officer on a cruise ship]. She made fun of me for saying 'refrigerator' instead of just 'fridge'. I had to explain what a refrigerator was! "Le réfrigérateur c'est un appareil dans une cuisine pour de conserver les nourriture au froid."? }
→K knows weapons (like the specific type of spear that the lance is, and goes to call the double-sided axe a labrys but decides that's too. complicated).
→Sigma knows tridents were used in fishing.
→Alice knows what an Allen's wrench is. @h@
→Alice jokes that mini-fridges usually hold cheap beer in college dorm rooms.
→She also says darts is just for guys picking-up girls. Sigma protests that it seems like a real sport, but Alice is cynical. He wonders what happened with her.
→Alice jokes that the billiard balls are Dragon Balls.
→K knows what a record player is (this game is originally dated in 2028). And is excited to play it.
→Alice knows pool table parts.
→Alice makes a joke about evil bosses & dartboards.
→The coin slot of the kiddie ride is shaped like a lion's head. The coins are patterned with suns.
→K has a childish glee about the kiddie ride, and hops on it when Sigma starts it. He giggles uncontrollably!
→When the ride takes a picture, K gives it to sigma as a souvenir of their time together.
→He wishes he could give out copies to everyone.

Rec Room After Escape:
→They do not meet anyone in the hallway, and exit at the Floor B Warehouse.
→"MOMENTO MORI IF THE NINETH LION ATE THE SUN" graffiti is focused on by the camera, but it's not mentioned.
→Alice notices the White Chromatic Doors.
→They wonder if they are Chromatic Doors even though they are all the same colour. Alice points-out the locks are the same.
→Her & Sigma try to open them.
→With no luck they decide to head back up.
→But K stays put.
→Sigma asks if he is alright?
→K says that this area seems very familiar. He isn't sure if he has been there before, or some place like it.
→Sigma suggests maybe it's because it's so similar to the first warehouse. K agrees it's a possibility.
→Then an Ambidex Gate opening announcement plays. 45 minutes to vote.
→Alice & Sigma are all D:<
→K: "I imagine they don't care what happens to the rest of us. That would be the most logical explanation.".
→They rush back to the Floor A Warehouse.
→They meet Phi & Clover.
→Sigma immediately asks where Tenmyouji's team is (not 'Luna's', or 'Quark's', or 'Tenmyouji, Luna, & Quark').
→Phi says that her group is the only one there.
→Alice angrily says they should wait to open the AB Gate then!
→Clover says it wasn't her or Phi.
→Clover says she tried to stop "him", but couldn't.
→Dio then comes over, and asks why does it matter to open it early?
→Alice says it does matter!
→K tells Dio that his group did arrive back quite early (I cannot remember what room the additional rules were found it. The no voting means death one).
→K asks since they finished so fast, if their investigation went well.
→Dio says he guesses it did.
→Sigma asks what room they got?
→Dio says the Treatment Centre.
→Sigma asks how that's different from the Infirmary?
→Dio says it had these..."pod things"...And then tells Sigma to go look for himself if he gives a shit. He doesn't feel like explaining it.
→Phi says Dio took something when they opened the safe. That he grabbed & pocketed something.
→Clover says she saw it too.
→He tells her to get away ("Aaah!").
→She demands he show it.
→Though Dio struggles, Clover reaches into his pocket though.
→It's an injection gun, with Neostigmine in it.
→Sigma wonders what it's for.
→Clover says the name sounds familiar, she wonders if she's heard it before.
→Dio says it's his because he found it, and snatches it back.
→Clover goes to fight--
→--But Tenmyouji & Luna come running out of the Magenta Door.

Time:2015-04-24 12:10 pm (UTC)
→Tenmyouji begs if anyone there has seen Quark.
→Luna says they finished the Pantry, but then Quark just disappeared.
→Sigma asks if he's lost then?
→Dio says that's being stupid, Quark's ("little jerk") probably dead by now. One corpse already, right?
→Tenmyouji gets right (understandably) pissed.
→Luna: "How could you!? Why would you say such a horrible thing!?"
→Dio says he was just being realistic & to calm down.
→Sigma says regardless they should go look for Quark.
→Tenmyouji is all "Yes!" and everyone goes to go look.
→But Sigma sees Alice inspecting something in the corner.
→He notes that it's weird, but decides Quark is more important.
→Sigma goes through the Magenta Door & searches the Lounge.
→With no luck he decides to look through the Blue Door to the Floor B Warehouse (since Tenmyouji & Luna must have searched past the Red Door well).
→Sigma searches the Rec Room but finds nothing.
→K comes in.
→Sigma goes to ask if he found Quark, but states that if K had, he would be with him. K goes "Indeed.".
→K searched the Treatment Center & Floor B Warehouse but found nothing.
→Sigma suggests they got check on the others then, K agrees, and they go back to Floor A Warehouse.
→Only Phi, Clover, & Tenmyouji are back.
→Tenmyouji asks if Sigma & K found Quark, and is saddened when told no.
→Sigma asks if they found anything, and Clover says no too.
→Phi says it's strange that they haven't found Quark with so many people looking.
→K offers: "Quark is only a child. It's possible he's become trapped in a small, enclosed space." (how he says it cracked me up while replaying).
→Sigma says that they'd probably hear him though. Clover agrees.
→Tenmyouji is very down. Sigma notices how old he looks. Tenmyouji is tearing-up, and Sigma's chest feels tight at just how scared, sad, & despairing he looks.
→The Dio rushes in through the Cyan Door & tells everyone they need to hurry. "They're in the crew quarters!"
→Phi, Sigma, Clover, Tenmyouji, K, & Dio rush to the Crew Quarters.
→There Alice's bloodied corpse lays against a wall, & Luna lays motionless on the floor beside an injection gun.
→Sigma checks if they're alive, but it's obvious they aren't. I'm going to quote the writing for it to show how the writing is.
"There was a roaring in my ears—Breathing? Heartbeat?—but my footsteps sounded muffled, as if I was hearing them through layers of cotton.
I pressed a shaking hand to Alice's neck. Her skin was still warm, but the only pulse I felt was my own.
Looking down it was clear why.
Something had been driven into her chest so far only the hilt was visible, and the entire front of her Something had been driven into her chest so far only the hilt was visible, and the entire front of her body was covered in blood. No one could survive something like that.

I forced myself to swallow the stinging lump in my throat and turned toward Luna.
Unlike Alice, at first glance she seemed unharmed.
As I reached for her neck to check her pulse, however, I saw a red mark near her jawline.
Nearby on the floor sat an injection gun.
I already knew what I would find, but I pressed my fingers to her neck
and waited. Nothing.
→Dio says that whoever killed the old woman must have killed them too.
→Phi wonders if only one of Alice & Luna was the target, but the killer killed both to keep the other quiet.
→K wonders if they maybe killed each other. That Luna stabbed Alice, then Alice injected her.

Time:2015-04-24 12:17 pm (UTC)
→Phi doubts it because Alice shows no signs of struggling.
→Tenmyouji wonders if they were killed elsewhere & brought to the Crew Quarters.
→K says that there would be less blood if that was the case (no-one mentions that Alice's clothes would really be disturbed then).
→Phi says there aren't really enough clues to do anything.
→That any one of them could have commited murder when they separated to look for Quark.
→Sigma is all 'One of us?!'
→Phi asks if he thinks someone else is there then?
→Sigma doesn't know.
→K asks if maybe Zero killed them? And the old woman too.
→Dio asks how they can all just be standing around talking?!
→Tenmyouji says there isn't much that can be done.
→Dio objects saying that there is concern because there is a killer around!
→Phi asks him if he realises he is the biggest suspect. That he might have waited until everyone was elsewhere and killed Luna & Alice, then claimed to have found the bodies.
→Dio gets disgruntled, and Phi tells him it's just a possibility.
→The announcement for 10 minutes left in voting. All non-voting parties automatically vote Ally (no mention of the no voting penalty rule).
→Sigma mumbles that that means Luna will be Ally...
→K says yes, and wonders if the guaranteed vote was the murder motive?
→Sigma is appalled that someone would kill for that.
→Sigma asks who Luna was playing against.
→Tenmyouji says it would have been him & Quark.
→Dio says that that makes Tenmyouji suspicious then. He's the only one on that team not missing or dead.
→Tenmyouji & Dio argue.
→Sigma says that doesn't explain Alice though.
→K says that he'd still be playing against Sigma.
→Tenmyouji wonders if Sigma was the target, and Luna was killed by mistake.
→K says there is no evidence anywhere and all the group is doing is speculating.
→Sigma suggests they go vote.
→K says they'll need to collect Luna's & Alice's bracelet then.
→Sigma asks what good they are now, and K explains that they'll be
needed to open the Secondary Doors.
→Dio asks how K can be so calm about it.
→Dio accuses K of murdering them.
→Dio asks him for his argument then. Is it because he's in the armour?
→Dio gets pissed.
→Sigma tries to intervene.
→Sigma breaks it up by saying arguing won't help anything.
→Phi agrees and they should get going.
→Clover stands by Alice, head down.
→Sigma asks her if she's coming.
→Clover says she can't leave Alice.
→Phi tells her if she doesn't vote Betray then Dio will get 9 Bracelet
Points. She'll try to vote Ally, but she's sure Dio won't let
her. And if he gets 9 BP he'll definitely be gone.
→Phi tells Clover that she could be letting Alice's killer escape.
→Clover snaps-out-of-it & says with a point that she won't let Dio get 9 Bracelet Points!
→Phi says good (Dio has said nothing).
→They go to the Ambidex Gates.
→Sigma questions about everything that's happened.
→He is pissed at Zero for this 'game', but decides he has no other
choice but to keep going.
→Just as he unlocks an Ambidex Room, K comes up to him.
→K proposes that Sigma & him both vote Ally.
→He also adds that even if Sigma does vote Betray & K votes Ally,
Sigma still will only have 8 BP and can't escape anyway. But if they
both pick Ally Sigma will have 7 BP.
→Sigma is untrusting and works- out that if K Betrays he'll have 9
Bracelet Points (K is at 6 BP now).
→Sigma brings-up that K voted Betray in AB Game Round 1.
→K says that that was more for survival than to leave. He didn't want
to lose 2 BP right at the start & be left with only 1 BP.
→K explains that he doesn't plan to leave. He'd like to leave, but he doesn't want to leave everyone else trapped here either.
→Sigma is all 'Wha?'.
→K has him remember what Zero III said about the Number 9 Door only
opening once.
→Sigma is a bit horrified again.
→K mumbles that maybe he shouldn't have said anything...
→K also says he doubts that everyone would let him escape anyway, and
would stop him.
→Sigma guesses so.
→That everyone getting 9 Bracelet Points & leaving together is the best plan.
→K then says he hopes Sigma will choose wisely, and then walks off.
→Sigma mutters that he hopes K does too.

AB Game Round 2:
→Sigma thinks K made a good stance.
→If K does Betray to an Ally though Sigma will have 2 BP & K will be at 9 BP.
→Does that mean he'll leave though?
→Sigma wonders if he can trust someone when he hasn't even seen his
face (I was reminded of Ace's photophosmia in 999)?


I chose to trust K, and vote Ally in my first playthrough, but Betray is what
leads to K End so that's what I'll post first.


AB Game Round 2 Betray:
→As soon as Sigma leaves the Ambidex Room the results screen shows.
→Phi & Dio picked Betray and Clover picked Betray Tenmyouji (& Quark) pickee Betray to Luna's Ally Sigma (& Alice) picked Betray and K picked Betray.
→Bracelet Points:
Phi & Sigma = 5 BP
Dio, Clover, & K = 6 BP
Tenmyouji = 4 BP
Quark = 9 BP
Alice (deceased) = 1 BP
Luna (deaceased) = 3 BP
→K comes over and Sigma is all 'I see you picked Betray...'.
→K: "Leading to a draw, it would seem."
→Sigma asks if K feels bad?
→K says he could ask the same thing.
→Sigma guesses they should just call their choices even.
→K says he thought Sigma would vote Ally.
→Sigma says he wouldn't have let K get 9 Bracelet Points & escape so easily.
→K says: "As I told you before, even if I were to reach 9 BP, I would not necessarily leave immediately. I might choose to wait until everyone else had also reached 9 BP." [Having played AB Game Round 2 Ally first, I know he does, and doesn't. But it was a bit refreshing to know his choice doesn't change with your choice like in Tenmyouji End. That upset me :/ ]
→Sigma says that that didn't seem probable.
→K says that Sigma doesn't trust him, then.
→Sigma is all "Well...".
→K tells him the whole game requires earned trust, so Sigma doesn't need to apologise.
→Sigma says that K told him to trust him so he could pick Betray :/
→K does one of his "Ha ha ha" weird laughs, agrees, and says he clearly isn't to be trusted then.
→Sigma kinda side-eyes him.
→Dio is all *urgh* that Clover voted Betray too. That if she'd only voted Ally he could be gone now.
→Clover & Phi ask him if he's stupid and that there is no way Clover would let him get to 9 BP.
→Sigma comments to Tenmyouji about his voting Betray.
→Tenmyouji says there is nothing he could do for Luna since...her...her bracelet is already fallen-off.
→K says that Quark has 9 BP now.
→Tenmyouji asks if K's worried Quark might escape.
→K says well it would leave everyone else trapped.
→Tenmyouji says that he bets everyone is happy Quark is still missing then.
→Sigma is all 'No D:'
→But Tenmyouji says even if no-one has said so, they're probably thinking so.
→The next round Star Round announcement plays. In the next round the Ambidex Game can be played as many times as the players wish.
→Sigma comments on this.
→K agrees with Sigma's understanding. Clover asks where to find the Star Key keycards. Phi says behind the next Chromatic Doors.
→Tenmyouji (making me wonder how much he looked for his grandson) asks if they found the next Chromatic Doors?
→Sigma is all 'I forgot to tell you guys' & taking-out the map they found he shows that there are 3 White Doors in the Floor B Warehouse.
→Tenmyouji wonders if that's where Quark went (behind the doors?).
→Sigma says they'll have to wait until the Chromatic Doors open, and checks to see there is an hour & twenty-one minutes until then.
→K says they'll have to make teams that make white then.
→They go over the new bracelet colours.
→Bracelet Colours:
Sigma = Blue Solo
Phi & K = Magenta Pair
Dio = Green Solo
Tenmyouji & Clover = Cyan Pair
Alice & Luna (both deceased) = Yellow Pair
Quark = Red Solo
→Phi says being paired with K is better than Dio, the sighs when Dio gives his colour (meaning Magenta + Green = White).
→Phi explains that the pairs & solos make white.

→Dio says they'll meet at the White Chromatic Doors when they open then. He doesn't want to hang around where there might be a murderer.
→Phi says usually the person who leaves a group gets killed.
→Tenmyouji says a loner also often is a killer.
→Dio asks if he's being accused.
→Tenmyouji says he doesn't know, but Dio is very suspicious.
→Dio insults Tenmyouji.
→Sigma says to stop fighting.
→That they don't know who the killer actually is.
→K: "We have no evidence of that, no, but we do know that Zero Sr. is one of us. And there is an excellent chance that Zero Sr. and the killer are one and the same.".
→Sigma asks why would they kill Luna & Alice now instead of when everyone was unconscious.
→He asks why set-up this elaborate game just to kill people during it.
→Tenmyouji asks if Sigma thinks there is another person around.
→Sigma says there might be.
→Sigma says that everyone should be looking for the murderer.
→Everyone is quiet until K says it's better than standing around at least.
→Tenmyouji says he needs to look for/find Quark.
→Phi sats they should go in pairs this time.
→No-one wants to go with Dio.
→Phi finally says she will to prevent arguing. Dio is unhappy. Phi confirms he'll be on her team next anyway.
→K asks to go with Sigma. Sigma is quiet, and K asks if he'd prefer someone else then, but Sigma says that K is fine.
→Tenmyouji & Clover are left then.
→Phi & Dio will search the Cyan Door & Blue Door.
→Clover & Tenmyouji will search the Magenta Door & Red Door.
→Sigma & K will search the Yellow & Green Doors.
→They'll meet in the Floor B Warehouse when finished.
→Sigma & K reach the Infirmary.
→Sigma says no-one is there, but K corrects him that there is the old woman.
→Sigma & K solemnly stand by her body.
→Sigma thinks besides from the blood she looks asleep, and the blood no longer looks like blood.
→He then notices that the bloodstain on her wrist has a bare patch.
→K & him wonder if something was removed!
→K suggests a wristwatch. That the killer must have stole it after.
→Sigma says that women usually wear thin watches, and the patch is big.
→K agrees and suggests maybe jewelry. Maybe a bracelet?
→Sigma is all 'Not a bracelet, a Bracelet!'.
→Sigma says the old woman must have been a Nonary Game player!
→K repeats what Sigma said that the old woman was a participant. Then falls deep in odd thought.
→Sigma asks if he's alright.
→K says it's nothing.
→Then that the killer must have the Nonary Bracelet on them because the group searched thoroughly & found nothing.
→Sigma figures-out that that wouldn't work, because the Secondary Door scanning wouldn't work with an extra bracelet!
→K: "So our suspect is not only a killer and a thief... ...But a skilled imposter as well."
→Sigma asks what.
→K says that after killing the old woman, the murderer put on her Nonary Bracelet and has been acting as a player.
→Sigma is a bit dumbfounded.
→K thinks that the killer is still wearing the bracelet. Zero III said that after a player's heart stops the bracelet comes off, so someone else could wear it.
→Sigma asks why?
→K says he thinks whoever killed the old woman must have not been an original player, but went to a great effort to be. They must have a reason for it. "Certainly they must have a goal of some sort. You would have to be mad to choose to come here.".
→He has no idea what, or why, or anything though.
→Sigma then examines the wrist bloodstain again.
→He realises the stolen bracelet must have been covered in blood too!
→Of course he then says no-one has a bloody bracelet though.
→K asks if he is joking, that they'd have cleaned it.
→Sigma then thinks they couldn't have gotten all traces off, and then--
→Sigma remembers the luminol! (all during this I was all "*URGH* THE LUMINOL! THE LUMINOL!" trying to will them to realise it.
→K is then all 'Aha!'.
→And one of my favourite things is K & Sigma working-out how they'd just have to test everyone to find the killer, of at least the old woman, the one who stole the Nonary Game Bracelet (K & Sigma make a great team, and them working together makes me happy & grin).
→They decide to gather everyone in the Rec Room and test them.
→Sigma says they need to finish searching for Quark though.

→They still have the Green Door & such, but they'll meet everyone after anyway.
→Through the Green Door they see the 3 doors & a lever.
→But 2 of the doors are unlocked.
→The expected Treatment Center (in the centre) & the one on the right.
→They wonder about it.
→Sigma suggests checking-out the right door first (which appears unlabelled to me).
→K thinks the room looks like a workbench (I recognise the room as the GAULEM Bay. But there are none of the GAULEMS around, not even G-OLM tethered to the workbench platform.).
→Sigma wonders for working on what. But searches for Quark.
→K is interested in the open safe under the workbench platform.
→Sigma asks what he is looking at.
→K says the opened & empty safe.
→Sigma asks if it was empty when he saw it?
→K says yes.
→So Sigma asks why he is so interested then (nosy Sigma!)
→K is wondering who opened it.
→Sigma says Phi, Dio, & Clover.
→But K reminds him that that team had the Treatment Center. The nameplate on this door is 'GAULEM Bay' (so it was just unlabelled to me/the player).
→K doubts that team were even in this room, so that's why he is confuzzled.
→Sigma suggests they check the Treatment Center then.
→Sigma wonders why the Green Door lead to 2 Rooms. K agrees it's a mystery.
→He decides to ask the others.
→They search the room.
→They look at the pods & decide to open the Number 1 pod.
→Inside is Quark!
→There is no Nonary Bracelet on his wrist.
→Sigma starts freaking-out that Quark is dead.
→But K notices Quark is breathing.
→Sigma checks the kid's pulse--it's weak but there.
→K sighs & mutters that he's so glad Quark is alright.
→Sigma gives K a big hug. K pats Sigma's back & gives a relieved form of his odd laugh.
→Sigma wonders about why Quark's bracelet is off. That Zero III said it'd only come off if someone escaped or was dead.
→K suggests maybe Zero took the bracelet off.
→That the room is a medical area, maybe Quark got sick, and Zero put him here.
→Sigma asks what he'd have, but K is all 'How would I know?'.
→K says they should go tell everyone they've found Quark though.
→Sigma asks if K can carry Quark, but K says they should leave Quark there in the case he really is ill.
→K closes the pod again.

→Sigma is concerned that Quark would be stuck in there, but K mentions the lever inside someone inside can open. And shows Sigma that he hasn't locked the pod from the outside either. If Quark wakes-up, he can leave if he wants.
→K & Sigma leave to find Tenmyouji, Phi, Clover, & Dio.
→Only Phi & Dio are waiting.
→Dio complains Sigma & K are late.
→I don't know if Phi & Dio separated, but Phi asks Dio how early he arrived, if he even searched at all?
→They ask if they found anything.
→K & Sigma tell how they found Quark!
→Phi is relieved.
→Dio says he is surprised Quark is still alive. K is annoyed with him; "As equivocal as always, I see.".
→Sigma & K tell them that Quark might be sick though, so they left him in the pod.
→Phi asks if he'll be okay?
→Sigma says probably.
→Phi is not happy with that answer. Dio is like the Hell if it matters, at least they found him.
→Phi asks if they found anything else?
→Sigma says yes, but he wants to wait for Tenmyouji & Clover.
→Sigma asks Phi if her team searched 2 doors beyond the Green Door?
→Phi says no.
→Sigma & K explain about the 2ND open door, and that it looked like a servicing room (no-one says "GAULEM Bay").
→Phi wonders if Zero Sr. opened the other door?
→Dio wonders what the person who opened it was looking for.
→K mentions that Tenmyouji & Clover still have not arrived back.
→He asks if they should go search for them.
→Sigma says no--There is something he wants to investigate first.
→Sigma leads K, Phi, & Dio to the Rec Room.
→Phi is all "We searched this room? Did you want to see something?" Dio asks why they're there.
→Sigma just quietly goes to the refrigerator, takes a bottle of luminol out, and hurriedly turns the lights off.
→He goes back and Dio asks if he plans to tell ghost stories now?
→Sigma asks if Dio is scared of ghosts? And Dio is all "No, what the Hell?". Sigma asks him to be brave then.
→Sigma tells Phi & Dio to hold out their wrists; the underside of the bracelets up.
→K asks if he should too, but Sigma says where his is inside the suit he doesn't have to.
→Sigma holds his wrist out to be fair though.
→Then Sigma quickly sprays all 3 of their wrists,
→Dio pulls away and is all uppity.
→Phi's & Sigma's bracelets don't react.
→Dio says he has rights and doesn't have to show his.
→Dio tries to bolt out.
→K goes all HAL "I'm afraid I can't let you do that, Dio.".
→Phi, Sigma, & K corner Dio.
→K pins Dio down and shows his wrist [in one of the rare moving cutscenes!].
→Dio's bracelet is glowing with a luminol reaction.
→So Dio stabbed the old woman & took her bracelet.
→Dio tries to say it's not like that.
→Phi asks what is going on?
→Sigma & K explain about what they figured-out.
→They make Dio confess.
→Dio says he is under orders to...do...something.
→He won't say what though, or by whom, and would die before.
→Phi & K bring-up Luna's & Alice's murders.
→Dio swears he just killed the old woman, and not Alice & Luna.
→K tells Sigma that Dio can't be trusted.
→Phi & K decide that even he didn't kill Alice & Luna that he is still a murderer and should be locked-up somewhere.
→K suggests a Treatment Center pod.
→Dio tries begging that he will be well behaved [relatedly I specify "well behaved" to Lydia instead of just telling her to be "behaved"].
→Sigma promises they'll let him out when the White Chromatic Doors open--they need his bracelet after all.
→Phi, Sigma, & K cart Dio to the Treatment Center and lock him in Pod 2.
→Dio pounds on the pod & makes threats.
→Sigma is all "well that's that". They figured-out who the murderer is, and found Quark.
→Phi reminds him that they still need to find Tenmyouji & Clover.
→K suggests they go back to the Warehouse B and see if Tenmyouji & Clover are there, or start looking from there.
→So Phi, Sigma, & K go back.
→Clover & Tenmyouji aren't there.

→Phi says they should just wait a bit longer since they have time then. K & Sigma agree.
→Phi asks K & Sigma about why Quark wasn't wearing his Nonary Game bracelet?
→K & Sigma tell her that they don't know and that it was gone when they found him.
→Phi is all "I see. That's not good. Without that bracelet, we won't be able to continue the game.".
→Sigma asks what she means.
→Phi reminds him that they need the bracelets to open the Secondary Doors.
→Then Sigma panics all "So we don't know where it is? But which team will need it?"
→K & Phi work-out that Quark would be a Red Solo, so Clover & Tenmyouji would need him as they are a Cyan Pair.
→Sigma wonders if they'd have the bracelet then?
→Phi says maybe, if they found Quark first.
→K, seemingly not thinking, wonders if Clover & Tenmyouji have already gone through a White Chromatic Door then?
→Sigma is all "That's not possible!". The Primary Doors haven't even opened yet.
→K brings-up that someone already opened a door they shouldn't have been able to. What if this is like that? [the GAULEM BAY door]
→Sigma is all "But... But that's against the rules!".
→K then says that if one of them is Zero, then the rules won't matter. Zero controls this game.
→Sigma asks if he thinks Tenmyouji or Clover is Zero Sr. then?
→K says it is only a possibility. It would explain why they aren't around though.
→K & Sigma decide it is just speculation though so doesn't matter.
→Phi asks if Tenmyouji & Clover really took the bracelet?
→Sigma says there is no way to find-out until later though.
→He decides they should got look for Tenmyouji & Clover anyway.

→K is all "Well..." then fold his hands in front of himself & tells his story.
→K was raised in a facility where is father worked alone. His father wouldn't let him be around him while working, and the only time he wasn't working was when he was sleeping. So K only had his educational programs to interact with. He reflects figuring that he probably was an expressionless child, since people learn gestures & reactions by interaction with other people. K didn't think anything was odd, until he learned to read and then read about families & other things. He began to long for a mother. "Someone who would always be with me, who would scold me if I did something wrong. At night would read to me before bedtime. If only I had a mother like that, I thought, I would be so happy." He'd read about families hanging-out, talking, & eating meals together, and began wanting that more than anything. Eventually he asked his father for a mother (K says it's the first thing he ever asked him for). K's father was quiet, but then said "Okay.". K was so happy, and was so excited. A few months later K's father called him into his laboratory for the first time. K was almost passing-out with anticipation. And in the laboratory was a young woman, and K was overjoyed. ...But then K's father told him her identification number. K's father had gotten or built K a robot to be his mother. And K was so upset. He told his father that he wanted a real mother, and not just a machine that would only act the part. His father was very surprised (the first time K had ever seen him such). "Then he frowned, coughed, and admonished me for being "'a whiner'". He'd never scolded me for anything before. At first I was surprised, then angry. Hot tears streamed down my face.". K's father is disgruntled and orders the robot to take-care of K, then kicks both out of his workspace. The robot was quite human acting, and tried to do as ordered. But K was so upset that he just locked himself into his room & ignored her. She acted sad, but K decided that if he wanted to interact with a machine then he had his educational software. "You can talk to a robot, and it will respond... But in the end you're still talking to a machine, not a person." [which is how I felt last year when I stopped playing "Animal Crossing: Wild World". I felt that 90% of my friends had abandoned me, and I got it as a distraction. But after awhile (100+ hours) I just felt alone & empty playing it. I had tried to contact people I thought were my friends, and got ignored, but artificial intelligence animals would respond to me. I'd send them in-game letters, and they'd reply. They'd greet me everyday & want to hang-out. And I felt so pathetic because I wanted that from real people instead. The last straw was on my birthday. When in-game the villagers remembered, and outside hardly anyone bothered to contact me, even after I had contacted them on theirs. So I stopped playing, and not wanting to feel that way again is one of the reasons why I haven't gotten "Animal Crossing: New Leaf".]. So K just acted like the robot wasn't there no matter how motherly/human she acted, to him it was all just because she was programmed to. K says he stopped expecting anything at all from his father after that. They never interacted anyway, so K just started living as if he was alone by himself. He says Sigma probably finds it weird that K didn't just leave (Sigma says nothing), but K never considered it. He wonders if deep-down he still wanted a relationship with his father?

Years went by, but then one morning after K turned 18 years-old he left his room to find a woman standing there. He thought she was another robot, but she was amused when he claimed that. She was only the 2ND human K had ever seen in-person. She said she had come to the facility to help K's father. Though she was a lot older than K, she seemed girly/young. She would tell K about the outside world, and he didn't know if they were grand stories or truths. He learned that she had known K's father when they were younger, and that his father had fallen in love with someone. K began hoping that the woman was actually his mother. She didn't have to work all the time in the laboratory, so she spent a lot of time with just her & K. And after she arrive she started having K, herself, & his father eat their meals together (the in-game illustration shows that the sparse table got covered with a tablecloth & vase of flowers). Since K had only ever eaten alone, he had no table manners and the woman would chide him and correct him. And she'd get after K's father too for trying to work on research at the table. Then they'd laugh, and K thinks it's the first time he ever laughed with his father. The woman began to make everything more 'homely', and adding things to the living quarters. After supper she'd have them sit in the living room and relax. K was so happy, and he felt he had what he had always wanted. She even invited K to help with the laboratory work too. K's father specialised in genetic engineering, and K learned he, himself had an interest in it too. Since they were working together, K & his father started to talk more and K began to consider him an actual father, and feel like a son. He father grew impressed by K, and that made K study & work even harder. K was content with life. "My days felt full, right, and meaningful, but most importantly I was happy.". Four years went by. But then one day K overheard the woman & his father talking low and serious. So K eavesdropped. It seems the woman planned to die for the research. It seems that was something she expected all along. K begged his father to stop his work. K wondered if what he, himself, worked on was leading to her death? K's father & the woman refused to stop. They had both known it would lead to this (and kept it from K). K threw himself into research, trying to find a way around her dying. He found a lot of awful things. His father's research needed sacrifice, and even K was just there as a spare for his father (a clone? The game just says 'spare'.). So if something happened to his father, K could step in and continue the work. K is shattered. "I was furious with my father, and with her, and even with the research I'd poured myself into for four years. There was only one thing to do: Destroy the facility and end my father's horrible research once and for all. I made plans to destroy the main reactor and with it the entire facility.". But the woman realised what K planned to do. Her & his father locked him up so that they could finish what they were going to do. She tried lying to him to reassure him. She said that he was mistaken, they'd found a way around it, and she'd be okay. But K didn't believe her. He began to wonder if she had invited him to help not just to give him something to do, but to use him. To make him that replacement. But still K couldn't hate her--She had brought so much happiness to him. She gave him a reason to really live, and made him feel like he had a family. Despite how he felt now, he wouldn't trade the past 4 years away. K still looked for a way to stop it, and pleaded to her to leave the facility. She said that she had reasons. There was a man that she loved very much & wished to live a normal life with (even marry). But she couldn't do that.

He had saved her life once, and this research was a way to repay it. That doing this would give potential for a future where no-one has to die. K is upset that someone he has never met meant more to her than him, and that a possible outcome later-on meant more than her life now. What good was his father's work succeeding to him? He wanted what he had right now. But nothing could get them to stop, and K was locked-up. "So I shut myself off from the world. Perhaps that is why I lost my memory.".
→K finishes and sounds tired.
→He says that even though not having his memories sucks, having them is exhausting.
→Sigma asks if he remembers anything else.
→"No. The details are still...indistinct. Especially more recent events..."
→He asks Sigma if he can just lay down for a bit.
→Sigma gets worried, and asks if K is alright.
→K says yes, but he really needs to rest. His head is pounding. He blames remembering a lot suddenly (and I figure probably telling his story too).
→Sigma tells him it's alright and he'll look for Clover & Tenmyouji alone then.
→K lays down on the Lounge sectional chesterfield/sofa, and seems to go to sleep.
→Sigma leaves him to it and heads to the Ambidex Room warehouse.
→He runs into Phi on the way there though.
→He asks why she's there. And she says she waited a long time and no-one showed-up, so she decided to check on Sigma & K.
→Phi asks where K is?
→Sigma tells her he's back in the Lounge, and she is annoyed that they split-up. He doesn't know how to respond, but she doesn't wait and goes through the Lounge door.
→Sigma tells her K said he wasn't feeling well and wanted to lay down.
→She asks if he's alright, and Sigma says that she needs to remember that K is a guy in a suit. That K was very tired.
→Sigma says they shouldn't bother K, and let him rest.
→She asks if Sigma is tired too. That he looks awful.
→Sigma says of course! "I mean, all of a sudden I wake up trapped in some weird-ass game, and then dead bodies start turning up... Honestly I'm amazed I've managed to hold onto my sanity for this long. Just about everything here makes absolutely no sense. The more I try and figure any of it out, the more I feel like my brain's just going to melt and run out my ears.".
→He asks if Phi knows what he means. She doesn't answer.
→Sigma says that though they found who murdered the old woman, there is still so many things they don't know. Where they are, why they are here, what is the Nonary Game for, what is Zero up to, who is Zero? Zero III said Zero was one on their 9, but who?
→Sigma asks if Phi thinks Dio is Zero?
→She doesn't know.
→Sigma adds to his questions with; Why did Dio kill them? He said he was ordered to, but? What about the old woman? What about any of the group? What about Phi?
→Phi is all "Do you suspect me? >:[ ".
→Sigma says no, but--
→She again says she is like him, kidnapped on Christmas Day. But she trails off.
→Sigma asks why she stopped, when they hear a noise out in the hallway.
→They go look but no-one is there.
→Sigma wonders if they went to the elevator. Phi agrees they should try it. If it doesn't open immediately, then it means it needs to come back up.
→They elevator has to come back up.
→Phi & Sigma decide to go down, but find no-one at the Red/Blue/Green Chromatic Doors.
→Sigma asks where they'd look, and Phi says just go through the Green Door.
→Sigma asks why, and she says she wants to check-on Dio & Quark in the Treatment Center.
→Sigma says he is sure they are fine. But Phi still wants to check.
→Sigma says it was probably Tenmyouji & Clover.
→Phi brings-up how Dio denies killing Alice & Luna.
→She says she just wants to check on Quark & Dio is all.
→So they go to the Treatment Center.
→The GAULEM BAY door is now closed.
→First they open Pod 01 and find that Quark is still sleeping soundly.
→Sigma is all "see?" and Phi guesses she was worried for nothing.
→They open Pod 02 and find...Dio dead with his hands on his throat, his mouth stuck open with a look of terror on his face.
→Phi yells to check Dio's pulse.

→Phi says someone must have monkeyed with it.

→K figured Dio killed Luna & Alice too.
→Sigma brings-up Clover & Tenmyouji.
→Phi brings-up Quark.
→Sigma is all "You suspect Quark???". He sarcastically says he'd need to wake-up, open the pod from the inside (he seems to forget K told him Quark could), get up, fiddle with the controls, and go back.
→Phi says she only means he should consider the possibility.
→K says then should Phi be a possibility too?
→Phi says no (but she could she have?) and tells how she ran into Sigma. Explaining how they heard a noise.
→She asks if him & Sigma split-up any? K says no.
→So K says the most likely is Clover & Tenmyouji.
→But they had better go to Warehouse B soon (K does not check his bracelet).
→Sigma checks & sees it's 7 minutes left.
→K calmly asks if someone grabbed Dio's bracelet.
→Phi & Sigma are all "Pish, why?".
→K explains that since him & Phi are a Magenta Pair, they need Dio's Red Solo.
→Phi & Sigma panic. And Sigma says they need to hurry then.
→He says they'll pick it up on the way back. K says he'll get it, and they should hurry.
→K then gives Sigma Luna's & Alice's bracelets. Seems he was the only one who thought of that in the upset (and shows how practical he is by picking them up).
→Phi & Sigma arrive at the White Chromatic Doors, but Tenmyouji & Clover aren't there.
→Phi goes to say that they're probably dead then, but Sigma yells at her. He says he doesn't want to believe only him, her, K, & Quark are all that are left alive. He is all "Godamnit Phi!" [My Nintendo 3DS suggests 'Godavarikhani'].
→Then K comes running in.
→They ask if he got Dio's bracelet. He says yes, but--
→He shows them that the bracelet is all smashed-up.
→They start going "oh shit", because that means K & Phi can't continue (and will die by penalty).
→K says he thinks whoever killed Dio did it [I just figured Dio had smashed it trying to escape the pod].
→K doubts that the bracelet will still work.
→Phi says that must have been what the murderer wanted then (for her & K to be stuck). K agrees.
→The announcement for 5 minutes until the Chromatic Doors close plays.
→Sigma realises they'll die then, and remembers Zero III's words and is filled with dread. He asks how the Hell they can be so calm.
→Phi just says for Sigma to go on. He has Alice & Luna's bracelets.
→Sigma: "Fuck that!".
→Phi & K are shocked.
→Sigma says he can't just leave them.
→They ask if he even gets what staying will mean.
→Sigma says, yes he knows he'll die too.
→But he says he won't be a monster & just abandon them.

This was the option I chose first. I wanted to believe in K. Well I still believe in K being K! I love how k can be silly or ruthless or heroic. And that in the Betray or Ally option routes he picks vengeance or escape whatever is more possible. My practical Nutella doughnut.

AB Game Round 2 Ally:
→ Sigma votes Ally.
→ Dio & Phi select Betray and Clover selects Betray. Tenmyouji selects Betray for him & Quark to Luna's default Ally. Sigma's (& Alice's) Ally and K selected Betray.
→Bracelet Points:
Sigma & Luna (deceased) = 3 BP
Phi = 5 BP
Dio & Clover = 6 BP
Tenmyouji = 4 BP
Quark & K = 9 BP
Alice (deceased) = -1 BP
→ Sigma questions K.
→ "So you did indeed choose "ally"."
→ Sigma tells him he lied to him, and K apologises.
→ Dio yells at Sigma. Calling him stupid for letting K get 9 BP.
→ Sigma is all "But K won't leave!".
→ K apologises again for using Sigma's trust and says he will be.
→ K then takes-off running, faster than Sigma thought he'd be able to.
→ K makes it to the Number 9 Door.
→ Dio yells more.
→ K pulls the lever and the door opens.
→ Clover panics.
→ The open announcement plays.
→ Sigma asks him whhhhyyyyy?!
→K says it's an obvious answer. That 2, er, 3 people have already been murdered. If he stays he'll be in "greater danger". It was an easy choice.
→ He says Sigma probably would have done the same, but Sigma interrupts him, and K apologises.
→ K says he plans to inform the police as soon as he is out.
→ Sigma yells again.
→K just leaves.
→ The door closes.
→The announcement plays.
→Phi is disappointed.
→ Dio yells blame at Sigma.
→ Tenmyouji says there is no point blaming Sigma. Clover agrees.
→ She admits they can't reopen the door anyway.
→ Dio is still pissed.
→Sigma starts thinking that this isn't right. It can't be right. [Does he say this after you play the Betray option?]
→Tenmyouji, Clover, Dio, Phi, & Sigma just stand there staring at the door.
→ Sigma thinks that their only hope of escape is that K will keep his word.
→He wonders who killed Alice, Luna, and the old woman.
→And about where is Quark?
→That there were unanswered questions left, but now they had time to try to answer them.
