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?

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:
Sigma & Phi = Red Pair
Clover & K = Green Pair
Dio & Quark = Blue Pair

→Find Soporil β & turbocurarine just sitting on a cabinet, for anyone to pocket, and/or use with the injection gun.
→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.

→Phi suggests taking the corpse to the Infirmary to inspect the wound.
→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).

AB Game Round 1 Ally:
→Phi is annoyed that Ally was picked.
→Tenmyouji picks Betray.
→Dio (& Quark) pick Betray to Alice's Ally.
→Clover & K pick Betray to Luna's Ally.
→Zero III then finally explains that getting 0 Bracelet Points also
means the death penalty.
→Zero III suggests that Phi, Sigma, Alice, or...even Luna may die next Round. Maybe everyone actually.
→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.
→Tenmyouji is scared and suggests seeing Luna, but Quark seems to perk-up so Sigma & Grandpa try to believe him.
→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..."

AB Game Round 1 Betray ⇒ Red Door ⇒ Control Room ⇒ Control Room After Escape ⇒ AB Game Round 2 ⇒ AB Game Round 2 Ally ⇒ Warehouse A ■Lock No. 08■ How do we stop Phi?

AB Game Round 1 Betray:
→The voting ending announcement plays.
→Everyone but Phi & Sigma rush to the results screen.
→Phi says that he picked what she wanted him to pick so thanks him.
→Sigma says she doesn't have to that he just made the obvious choice.
→She asks what he means.
→Sigma says that he is certain Alice picked Betray. That they had to vote Betray too.
→Phi asks how he knows what she picked?
→Sigma is quiet a moment and says he just knows. Phi asks if he's mocking her. Sigma says "maybe".
→Zero III calls them over. Phi says they'd better go see if Sigma made the right choice.
→K & Clover voted Betray and Tenmyouji voted Ally, Dio & Quark voted Ally and Luna vited Ally, Sigma & Phi voted Betray and Alice voted Ally [Much to my irritation! Just like that ass Tenmyouji]
→Bracelet Points:
Sigma, Phi, Clover, & K = 6BP
Dio, Quark, & Luna = 5BP
Tenmyouji & Alice = 1BP
→Sigma runs to Alice asking what the fuck?!
→Alice is confused. Sigma says she picked Betray last time!
→He starts to falter, that he picked Betray this time because of last time...
→She asks what the Hell he is talking about "last time"?
→Sigma asks when she pushed the button to vote. She says right after the 5 minutes left announcement.
→Sigma says that can't be right.
→Sigma flashes back to the results board from where Alice voted Betray here [See AB Game Round 1 Ally on this route]. He questions what is going on. That last time when Phi & him voted Ally that Alice voted Betray. Remembering her "minimising risk" explanation. How she called him an idiot for being optimistic.
→He wonders what was different this time to have her vote Ally when him & Phi voted Betray?
→If his choice had somehow changed history?
→Sigma decides that's not right. That at least if she had chosen Ally because she knew he had chosen Betray then that was one thing, "the principle of cause and effect". But this wasn't that. Alice couldn't have known. And if she had she definitely would have voted Betray.
→Sigma thinks of it like a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors. That if he put out rock first, then Alice put out paper after she'd win. So he goes back in time to choose scissors. He goes first again and Alice chooses rock. Like that still makes sense. His actions before cause her actions after. But that's not how it happened in this Ambidex Game. Using again Rock, Paper, Scissors, he says this is like if Alice went first this time but he doesn't know what she played. So he goes with rock. It's revealed Alice went with paper. Sigma loses and is pissed-off. So goes back in time to retry. He decides to play scissors this time because it's obvious to win against Alice's paper. But importantly Alice has already made her choice before he plays anything. But Alice has put out rock instead. That he would be so angry! How could she play rock when before she played paper?! That there Isn't any cause and effect here. That Alice's choice was in the past and his was in the future. How could the future influence the past?

Time:2016-06-27 12:30 am (UTC)
→Sigma again remembers the results board where him & Phi voted Ally. He realises this isn't a theory now. That the Rock, Paper, Scissors scenario actually just happened.
→Sigma wonders what is happening?!
→Then Sigma questions why he is thinking so casually about time travel?! That this is real-life. That time travel is impossible.--Right?
→But why does he so vividly remember him & Phi voting Ally before? Why does he remember Alice's explanation.
→Alice startles him out of his thoughts. Asking if he had a stroke or such.
→Alice says Sigma should be answering her questions instead. Because she only has 1BP left because of him & Phi.
→Sigma agrees. Him agreeing pisses her off. Sigma sincerely apologises. He feels terrible for voting Betray.
→Alice says she'll never trust Sigma or Phi again. That they'll "pay" for it.
→Alice storms away and the look she gives Sigma stabs him.
→Sigma overhears K & Clover trying to explain themselves to Tenmyouji.
→Tenmyouji says he wouldn't ever vote Betray because of Clover being his opponent. Clover asks what he means. K asks if Tenmyouji has a crush on her. Tenmyouji stumbles and says no. K asks what then and Tenmyouji tries to answer. Clover interrupts and says Tenmyouji is stupid to vote Ally. That the only reason to would be if you impeccably trusted the other persons. Tenmyouji asks if she doesn't trust him then, and she says of course not! She asks if he's losing his mind expecting her to trust a stranger she just met. Tenmyouji says he understands now. He seems on the verge of tears and mumbles how he didn't think it would hurt so much. Clover questions him on that and says he's acting creepy now. He tells her he understands that he guesses he hasn't had time yet for her to trust him. Clover acts surprised by how calm he is over it. Tenmyouji points-out Luna, Quark, & Dio's group. That the fault with his group's results must be his.
→Luna is thanking Dio & Quark profusely.
→Quark says they only did what anyone else would. Dio hesitates but agrees.
→Sigma thinks everyone else probably wishes they had done like Luna, Quark, & Dio did. Both teams vote Ally for 5BP all around.
→Sigma wonders what had happened in their AB Room though to have Dio sound so awkward agreeing?
→Alice asks Zero III when the next round starts? He asks why she thinks there will be another round? She points-out he said "Round 1". K also says that if the goal is to get 9BP then there would have to be a 2ND round. Zero does the whole spiel on how the next round will be when an AB Gate opens. Luna says they're already open, Zero III closes them and the announcement about the Moon Round plays.
→Sigma asks if it's Moon Cards then does that mean the Sun Cards no longer work? Zero III confirms.
→Then the part where Dio asks how many rounds and Zero III says he doesn't know. And Tenmyouji's question and Zero III confirming that no, the game goes until the Number 9 Door opens and not just if someone gets 9BP. That the game could go on forever though.
→And Sigma asking about the Bracelet & Secondary Door rules. If there is similar for the Number 9 Door? Zero III says there isn't, all 9 of them even could.
→Zero III says that the people numbers for Secondary/Chromatic Doors isn't exactly correct though. That instead of 3 people, 1 or 2 could enter them. Alice questions his earlier rules and he says he didn't want to "make things complicated". Then the whole thing that the scanner between the Doors only scans the bracelets and not the people wearing them. That the bracelets only come off if you escape through the Number 9 Door or your heart stops though. And then the part about how reaching 0BP is the same as the penalty result.
→Sigma thinks on how Phi was right then. But how had she known?
→Alice berates Zero III for not explaining all the rules sooner. Zero III says it's fair because no-one else knew about the 0BP rule. He asks Phi if that's right, and she hesitates and agrees.
→Sigma contemplates all the new information.
→Zero III explains about the Bracelet Colours.
→Bracelet Colours:
Sigma & Luna = Yellow Pair
Alice = Yellow Solo
Tenmyouji = Magenta Pair
Phi & Dio = Magenta Pair
K & Quark = Cyan Pair
Clover = Cyan Solo
→Zero III says his farewell.

Time:2016-06-27 12:34 am (UTC)
→Quark asks what they should do now then? In the time before the next Round?
→Alice suggests looking for other exits.
→K agrees they should look around at least.
→Phi suggests meeting in front of the 2ND set of Chromatic Doors then, 5 minutes before open.
→Everyone but Sigma leaves Warehouse A. He starts wondering with despair why he is even there.
→He remembers about how he was taken [See other routes].
→Sigma decides to go search things too.
(Infirmary ⇒ Lounge ⇒ Crew Quarters)
→Sigma meets Alice, Dio, & Tenmyouji in the Infirmary.
→Sigma asks if she's still angry. She says she is. Dio asks her to calm down and she says he should be quiet as he has 5BP. That her & Tenmyouji only have 1BP and could die.
→Tenmyouji says she shouldn't get angry at people though. That being a jerk to Sigma doesn't help her any.
→Alice says he doesn't understand. That he is old so closer to death, not like her. She has things ahe plans to do.
→Dio asks like what and she again says she plans to wear "gorgeous clothes", eat lots of "delicious food", & fall in love.
→Tenmyouji calls her dumb. That he was going to agree with her until she gave those reasons.
→Alice says she really does have something more important to do. Sigma asks what and she says to avenge her father's murder. Sigma asks for more details but she refuses.
→Sigma does ask to know if her father's murder has a connection to them being trapped in the facility. She doesn't know either way. But maybe her own kidnapping is connected because she was close to finding the killers.
→Sigma asks if she's a detective. She says that's close. Tenmyouji, Dio, & Sigma look at her because she doesn't look like one.
→Sigma asks if she's CIA then. She isn't. She says in her line of work not looking like what she is is best.
→Dio asks about her being close to Clover. She denies they work together and that they just met in a desert but that's a long story.
→Alice says the others should talk about themselves too.
→Tenmyouji says he's a garbage collector. He refuses to answer Alice about how he knows Quark.
→Dio says he's a circus ringleader. That he took over from his dead father. Alice points-out the similarity with her.
→Sigma reminds them he already said he was a student. He was working on his PhD.
→Sigma says he doesn't know anyone else there, except maybe K since he is wearing a mask and has amnesia.
→Sigma asks if anyone know anything about Clover, Quark, Luna, & Phi?
→Alice says Clover is a student and waitresses/bartends at night. Sigma says Quark must be an elementary school student. Tenmyouji laughs and Alice questions him. He says he guesses a boy Quark's age would be in elementary school. She says he must not know much about Quark then. Tenmyouji tells her that if it makes her feel any better than she can believe that then. Dio says he knows Luna has some sort of medical license. They guess nurse. They ask Sigma about Phi. Sigma realises he barely knows anything about Phi. He thinks to himself that she seems more suspicious.
→Sigma wonders what they all have in common for Zero to kidnap them?
→Alice says they should keep looking around the facility instead of gossiping. Tenmyouji agrees. Dio asks where Sigma plans to look next.
→Sigma decides to go to the Lounge.
→In the Lounge Sigma meets Phi, Luna, & Clover.
→Luna & Sigma joke that she's a waitress.
→Clover asks in annoyance why he's there. Sigma says he was just checking it out.
→Sigma jokes that he feels like he's in a VIP room with 3 ladies, the bar, & couch. Clover asks if she can get him a drink. Sigma questions her age. She says she just turned 21. He says he would drink with her then, if it wasn't a bad idea. That this isn't a good situation to get drunk with. Clover says it seems like a time when people would want to. He agrees.
→Luna questions him. He says he has no intentions to drink, especially with his headache.
(Reply) (Parent) (Thread)

Time:2016-06-27 12:35 am (UTC)
→Phi asks if he still has one. He says it was fine for awhile but returned. Luna is concerned. He says it should be fine if he waits.
→Sigma asks them of anyone else is having problems? Phi says she had a headache earlier too. Luna did too. Clover says she didn't have a headache but feels weird. Luna asks if it's her head, but she says it's her whole body. Sigma says he thinks he feels that too, like he went to sleep on his arm only all over. Clover says kinda but not exactly. Phi says yeah, it feels like her body isn't really hers. Luna says it might be the Soporil β gas that was used when everyone was abducted. She thinks it might either be a side-effect or just hasn't worn-off yet because of how much was used to keep them unconscious so long.
→Phi says it's unimportant and they should keep searching.
→Sigma asks if they're going to stay in the Lounge. Phi says they haven't finished searching there.
→So Sigma heads to the Crew Quarters.
→Sigma meets K & Quark in the Crew Quarters.
→They ask him if his group was there earlier. If he found anything suspicious. He says he would have told everyone if he had. K asks further. Sigma shows them the "Schrödinger's Cat" book. Quark asks about it and Sigma goes to explain but his cat talking starts. He tries to explain and Quark & K think it's weird. Quark asks about the book and Sigma says it's some physics experiment. K explains it. Sigma says he doesn't know anything beyond what Phi told him. Quark starts to catch the cat talking.
→Sigma asks K & Quark about their groups' previous rooms.
→K says the whole facility is suspicious. But specifically the Lounge puzzels were lunar eclipse themed. The eclipse to happen on December 31ST, 2028. Sigma tries to think of how an eclipse could be connected to their abductions.
→K asks Quark about the Infirmary. Quark says one thing but asks why Dio & Luna didn't say. Quark shows them the newspaper clipping [See Infirmary].
→Sigma wonders why he hasn't heard anything about a pandemic before now. K agrees it would be a big deal. K wonders if a pandemic is happening in the world outside of the facility.
→Just then Clover comes barging in yelling that they need to come with her.
→K asks what happened. She says they found something.
→Quark asks what and she says "It's horrible! It's really scary!". Quark questions but she says to come look. It's just in the next room.
→She leads them to another Crew Quarters' room and points under that room's bed. It's a numbered canister stuck to it. She thinks it's a bomb.
→Sigma has a flash of that bomb counting down and Phi thanking him. Then the bomb exploding.
→Sigma realises it was the same bomb from his vision earlier. That it might have been a premonition instead.
→Quark suggests telling everyone. Clover says Luna already is gathering everyone else. That everyone should arrive in a few seconds. And they do.
→Dio demands to know where it is. Luna points it out.
→The part from AB Game Round 1 Ally on this route plays. That it probably has an activation switch. Only with Clover & Luna having found the bomb first. Sigma asks why they weren't in the Lounge and they said they decided to come search the Crew Quarters. Phi confirms because she stayed at the Lounge.

Time:2016-06-27 12:37 am (UTC)
→Phi asks how they knew it was a bomb when they found it? Clover says she knew by looking at it. Phi questions. Clover starts to say that during her training, but Alice interrupts. Clover covers her mouth, but Alice confirms it's a bomb. And the part where Phi questions Alice about how she knows about the bomb. And the annihilation energy. And about Quarks name. And Phi explaining in simple terms after Tenmyouji can't think of a way. The "A baby!" part. [And Dio acting appalled at how destructive the bomb is and fearing for his safety :-/ ] And K pointing-out the numbering on the bomb. And the explaining about the password input. And wondering who could have planted it. The suspicion on Sigma. And the bit about Zero III. And how it couldn't have been a 10TH person.
→Luna interrupts to tell them to check 5he time. 4 minutes until the Chromatic Doors open. Everyone rushes downstairs.
→They get there as the announcement plays at the Chromatic Doors open.
→Quark says they need to figure-out who is going through what! Sigma asks about combinations.
→Phi says to listen to her. She explains that there are 3 combinations.
→Alice butts-in and says Sigma got to pick last time so she should this time. Where she has the most to lose. Quark says Tenmyouji should get to pick too. Tenmyouji agrees but wants to see what Alice says.
→Alice wants to go in the Green Door with Quark & K. K asks Tenmyouji what he thinks. Tenmyouji okay.
→Clover asks why he'd want to go with her where she already voted Betray against him before?
→Tenmyouji says he's sure. That's why he wants to. That he wants to change her mind about not trusting him. Clover is tongue-tied.
→Tenmyouji says he's wanted to pair with Alice too, to discuss something. She asks what, but he won't say right now.
→Luna asks if everyone else is okay with that?
→Sigma thinks if he's okay going through the Red Door with Luna & Phi. [You get an option to select "Yes" or "No". I wanted to pick No just because of not trusting Phi.]
Alice is pissed-off. Luna asks Sigma what option he wants.
(Option C)
→Alice says like Hell. Sigma betrayed her last round so why would she go with him this time?!
→The Door closing announcement plays. Luna starts to panic. She asks Sigma to reconsider.
→Sigma decides he has no other choice. He agrees with Option B then. [I was curious on the result but I didn't pick Option A. There is a fork in this path so I know there is another route option, but I didn't want to unlock it yet for just wanting to see different dialogue]
→(Option B)
Alice says he made a wise choice.
→Luna says they should go. Everyone hurries through their Chromatic Doors.

Red Door:
→They come to 3 doors and a lever.
→Sigma wonders if it's a dead end. All 3 doors are locked.
→Phi suggests he pull the lever. He asks why and she says because it might be a trap.
→Sigma says there must be nothing on the other side of her breasts then. No heart.
→Phi says she is a C-cup. Sigma says if she is then he has a 12 inch dick. [Which we know is actually 8 inches and grows to 18 inches and can fold into a 'Σ']
→Sigma & Phi argue for awhile until Luna breaks-out laughing at them. They ask what and she says she pulled the lever.
→Only the left door opened.
→They enter the door into a big and somewhat dark room.
→Luna thinks it's a control room. Phi thinks she sees a generator through the window.
→Sigma says that they should look around. Luna asks about the Moon Cards. Sigma says they're probably in the room. So Phi agrees to start.

Control Room:
→There is a control panel covered in buttons, screens, & such.
→Phi thinks the generator machine looks like an octopus. Sigma says it would be a big octopus. Phi says it would take years to eat all of it. Sigma says not to eat it then. Luna says she thinks it's an annihilation reactor. Phi asks if she means like the bomb. Luna says yes, they'd work similarly. Luna says Phi probably knows more about it than her. Phi says not really she just picks-up information here-and-there. Phi says it's probably running on hydrogen & antihydrogen though and goes to try to explain how to calculate how much energy it's producing. Sigma interrupts and says to stop that complicated mumbo-jumbo. Sigma asks if the octopus is a annihilation energy machine then. Phi says it's more like an engine. Luna adds "All of the energy in this facility is generated by Mr. Octopus.". So this room is the generator's control room.
→There is a clipboard with "TEST" on it written in different coloured highlighter for each letter. T = green, E = blue, S = yellow, T = pink
→There is a laptop on it too. It looks like my Sony Vaio :-P (except the large webcam on top) It has a green "T" in the screen and a memory stick shaped USB object plugged into it.
→The USB object is a portable scanner. If you scan the clipboard the scanner turns from a red light to a yellow one.
→Plugging the yellow scanner into the laptop displays the Gold File password
→Unplugging the USB object switches the laptop screen to a picture of the wall behind them, showing another clipboard shoved beside the folder cardboard boxes. Phi makes fun of Luna & Sigma for thinking it was a realtime feed after they move things and the image stays the same.
→The clipboard has 4 rows of different coloured 4 digit numbers. And an arrow pointing right. They are written in the highlighter colours
→Scanning it turns the scanner green.
→Putting it in the laptop just shows the green numbers. "7213" going by the arrow.
→There is a red clock on the wall that reads "11400sec".
→There are books on shelves that Sigma can't read because they seem to be in code. There are also 2 small boxes on the shelves. The red one contains a protractor. It has a red line 30° from the 90° mark. The black box contains a compass. Under the shelves are boxes filled with unknown machinery. Luna doesn't know what it is. Combining the compass & protractor spreads the compass to 60°.
→There is a blue clock on the wall that reads "510min". Sigma comments that it's a long time.
→There are books on another shelf too. A bunch of technical books and a novel he doesn't give the name of. Phi comments all the boxes are held together with PP bands.
→There is a piece of paper in the wall with a bunch of "off"s & "on"s written on it. It has a hole in the centre of it. Using the compass on it gives a circle that touches some of the words. Black on, black off, white on, black off, black off, black off in a clockwise direction.

→There are 6 levers on the control desk. Labelled on & off.
→Turning them in the order from the circle paper causes the white lever to fall off. Luna accuses him of breaking it but he says it just fell out. Phi says "Well, it's off now so no point in crying over spilt levers." suggesting it might have another use.
→There are 2 lockers. One has a green keypad that the code is sums. The other has pictures of clocks & H M on it.
→Putting in the green code from the scanner on the green keypad unlocks it. Inside is a disc-shaped part with a hole in the centre. Phi suggests wearing it like a crown. Luna suggests it's part of a machine.
→Converting the clock times into hours gives 8.5 for the blue & 3.16 for the red. So 8 hours & 30 minutes, and 3 hours & 10 minutes. 8 30 3 10. Inside is a rainbow coloured tree root in a display canister. Sigma jokes it would make a great souvenir but probably not make it through customs. Phi thinks someone painted it. They both think it's ugly. Luna thinks that they are supposed to put it somewhere like the machine.
→On the wall is a bunch of labelled pipes/tubes with levers, & a lever labelled 'Power". Sigma thinks it has electrical cables. Luna thinks flipping the lever will change the amount of electrical current. Sigma wonders what it would do and Luna doesn't know. Phi guesses the power lever is the source, in any case. Sigma decides to flip it. Phi tells him not to because the 320 lever is missing. So they should look for a replacement.
→There is a podium with a screen on it. Luna doesn't think it has power to turn on.
→There is a machine with a platform beside the podium screen. Luva thinks it's ti analyse things, but looks to be missing a piece. Sigma puts the rainbow tree root specimen on it though. It does nothing due to lack of the piece. Sigma puts the disc-shaped piece on it. Luna tries to start the machine but it doesn't work. No power. Sigma says of course it's always something.
→Sigma screws the lever from the other set on the missing lever spot. Luna says she found a manual for the power swt-up on the floor. That the machine uses liquid to transmit electricity. That the flow of the liquid controls the amount of voltage. That say turning the 240 lever to the left or right sends the 240 voltage that way. Putting it in the middle sends 120 left & right. Sigma asks about the ones labelled with "?"s? Luna says those are unknowns in the target values. So like 3?? would mean it's 300-something, ?40 that it has a 40 in it. That they need to get the correct numbers on the bottom ? labels. And the liquid only flows from top to bottom.
→Getting them correctly turns the light by a number green. Getting them all right turns the analysis machine & screen on. Phi guesses it's finally ready for them to use the machine.
→Luna thinks the machine is a CT scanner. Sigma asks if it's like the hospital kibd that can take cross-section images of brains and such. Luna confirms yes. But not just the human body, like the tree root. Phi notices there's a cross section from the root on the screen. Sigma wonders what to do and Phi says it must be trial-and-error. Just try something to see if it works. Scrolling to the middle layer gives percentages, and the top layer has all the colours add to 100%. So on the middle layer yellow = 25% red = 20% green = 30% so the missing blue percentage is 25%. Putting in the numbers on the bottom layer to add to the percentage completes the puzzle. The screen turns green with the Safe Password.
→Examining the root again has Luna call it beautiful! Phi calls it gross. Making Luna sad :-(
→Inside the Safe is a FLOOR B map. Sigma questions why the letters aren't counting up instead if down. Phi suggests "Above" & "Below" for A & B. Sigma says that's ominous. Also in the Safe are 2 Moon Keys. Phi takes 1. Also in the Safe is a palm pilot looking device with a keyboard on it and a cable connected to it. And lastly the door key! Luna & Phi tell Sigma to hurry and open the door!

Control Room After Escape:
→As soon as the open the escape door the announcement about an Ambidex Gate opening plays!
→Phi, Luna, Sigma in a mix of panic & anger rush to the Warehouse A to see who didn't wait.
→Tenmyouji, Dio, & Clover. Sigma questions them and Clover & Tenmyouji say it was Dio.
→Sigma is pissed-off at Dio. Dio says they never agreed to wait to open an Ambidex Room and he didn't want to wait. Sigma & Luna tell him it wasn't agreed on because it's common sense. That the other group might not get back in time.
→K comes running in just as she says it. He's relieved everyone else is there.
→Sigma asks what's wrong and K says Quark has collapsed. That they moced him to the Infirmary after they escaped their room, but Tenmyouji should hurry in case his condition changes.
→Tenmyouji rushes ahead and the others follow.
→The part from the AB Game Round 1 Ally on this route plays. Where Luna scans Quark and the Radical-6 diagnosis. Only with Sigma explaining that the Control Room only had stuff for controlling the generator. And K saying that they were in the Archives and it had no medicine either. Sigma asks Clover about their room to be sure and she says it was the B. Garden (so no Treatment Center or such this route!). She suggests maybe some medicinal plants though?
→And then the part where Quark awakens and tries to kill himself so his soul can escape. Someone takes the scalpel from him, and Luna knocks him out with Soporil β. And Luna explaining about the virus attacking reason. And Alice taking the scalpel and escaping.
→Sigma looks in the Lounge first. Then the Archives. Sigma is panicking about Alice planning to kill herself. Sigma then tries the B. Garden.
→Sigma is entranced by the smell of nature there. He is almost lost in observing it and wondering about its purpose when he remembers Alice.

→And he finds Phi holding Alice on the ground. The scalpel is missing. He goes to help her up and take Alice to the Infirmary.
→Phi stops him though. She tells him to stay calm and look to his right. There is a 01 Bomb.
→She gets him to notice that there must be a 02 Bomb then too. And he says so that's 3 tons of TNT then.
→Sigma wonders who set it. Phi says it could be anyone. That Tenmyouji, Dio, & Clover investigated the B. Garden, but someone could have placed it after they left. [So a new Bomb on this route D:]
→Phi says they'll worry about Alice first though. They take her to the Infirmary.
→And the part where Alice is diagnosed with Radical-6 plays. And Clover is in dispair. And flings herself over Alice's unconscious body.
→The announcement for 10 minutes left in voting plays. And about non-voting participants defaulting to Ally.
→Dio says they'd better hurry to vote then.
→Clover refuses to leave Alice. Dio says that's fine.
→Phi confronts him about how he'll probably vote Betray then since Clover will default to Ally. Dio denies it and points-out Tenmyouji will be with him too.
→Tenmyouji says he won't be. He'll stay with Quark. Phi tells Dio that he won't be able to use Tenmyouji as an excuse then.
→Luna suggests Dio stay too. So everyone defaults to Ally.
→K interjects by showing them a note that his team found in the Archives. Dio & Luba confirm their rooms lacked a note.
→Sigma asks what the note says. K suggests Sigma read it outloud for everyone else too.
→It's a note saying that 1 person out of every group of 3 doesn't vote then everyone gets penalised.
→So Phi points-out that K is going to have to vote too as Alice & Quark are unconscious. Dio accuses him of hoing to vote Betray to get 9BP. K denies abd clains he'll vote Ally.
→K reminds that Alice only has 1BP so betraying would mean her death. That he wouldn't kill to escape. That he has no choice but to vote Ally.
→Tenmyouji says there is no choice then, that Clover will have to go vote for their group then. She's confused and asks what he means.
→Tenmyouji then attacks Dio. He knocks him down and tells Clover to hurry.
→Tenmyouji explains that now her & K are in the same position. They have to vote Ally or kill someone. Phi confirms.
→Clover hesitates, wondering why Tenmyouji trusts her so much. Tenmyouji says he'll protect Alice but she has to go. He tajes her hesitation as her not trusting him. She says she trusts him.

→The 3 minute announcement plays.
→Phi & Luna tell everyone to hurry. Clover tells Tenmyouji to take care of Alice and all but Dio, Tenmyouji, Quark, & Alice hurry to vote.
→Sigma confirms they all have Moon Cards and then they open the AB Gates.
→Phi stops Luna & Sigma though. Making them promise to vote Ally. She then threatens if they don't.
→They enter the Ambidex Rooms.

AB Game Round 2:
→Luna asks Sigma what he plans to do. He reminds her he promised he'd vote Ally.
→Luna is hesitant though, because if Phi votes Betray then she'll have 9BP. He asks what she wants to do then.
→Luna says it doesn't matter what she wants, because she'll be in the same situation regardless. That if Phi votes Ally and they vote Betray then Sigma will have 9BP. So regardless if Phi & Sigma don't both vote Ally or both Betray then someone in the group will have 9BP.
→The 20 seconds announcement plays.
→Luna tells him he has to make the choice. He asks if she's okay with it? She says she is.
→Sigma debates what to vote as he faces the screen. He thinks it's an impossible choice.

AB Game Round 2 Ally:
→Sigma touches "Ally".
→The completed announcement plays.
→Clover, K, & Phi are already at the results screen.
→Luna questions if voting Ally was the right choice? He says he promised to. He assures her Phi must have too.
→Sigma asks if Luna doesn't trust Phi (I don't!). Luna says no, but can't really gove a reason.
→Sigma says they might as well just go look at the results instead of dwelling on it.

Warehouse A ■Lock No. 08■ How do we stop Phi?:
→The go to the results and everyone but Phi has voted Ally.
→Bracelet Points:
Phi = 9BP
K & Clover = 8BP
Quark & Dio = 7BP
Sigma = 4BP
Alice, Tenmyouji, & Luna = 3BP
→Sigma confronts Phi. She says SHE never promised anything, just Luna & him promised her.
→Phi says he should have seen this. She said she'd make him pay.
→Sigma has no idea what she is talking about.
→Phi says Sigma chose Betray first. He asks what she means, like Round 1?
→Phi says in the 1ST round 2. (I voted Ally in the very first Round 2 I played and haven't played the Betray fork on this path too)
→He tells her to look at the results. He voted Ally.
→Phi tells him to cut the act. That he knows what she means. She reminds him about his visions.
→Sigma goes to answer but he notices K, Clover, & Luna watching them.
→Luna asks what they are discussing. Phi says to nevermind.
→K says it's important because Phi is the only one to vote Betray. K asks if her & Sigma's talk os related to that.
→Phi says yes, but they wouldn't believe her. Clover says they might if she explains.
→Phi is quiet & thinking.
→Then she looks at her Bracelet, and tells them she's leaving.
→Sigma asks what she means. And she tells him she's going through the Number 9 Door.
→Sigma runs in front of her. He tells her he isn't leaving.
→Sigma tells Phi that he didn't think she was like this. To abandon everyone.
→PhI says the part of her that cared died when her trust was broken. That he probably can't emphasise.
→Phi tells him to move, Sigma won't, so she leaps over his head to land at the Number 9 Door's lever.
→Sigma is dumbfounded. Phi recites "Plaudite! Acts est fabula!" ["Applaud! The play has ended!"]
→Sigma tells her to stop but she doesn't.
→Sigma then feels a burning light in his head and passes-out.
→Sigma awakens in a sea of nothingness.
→To Be Continued...
