Ok,im a little bit into chapter 2.Impressions so far:
Those gym uniforms don't leave much to the imagination,do they? Also speaking of school stuff,I noticed that both here and in yokai watch the classrooms have 2 doors.Is that a japanese thing?
I like the idea of time and space being fragmented,it works both story wise and also gameplay wise as a way to explain where all the candles and wooden boards are coming from.
sooooooooooo,I accidentally did a really weird wrong end?????
here's what happened:at that part where ayumi goes crazy for a bit,and when you exit the room that ghost child comes at you,I couldnt avoid it and died the first time.Second time I tried to avoid it,but it still counted as death if I was near the ghost,not just if our eyes crossed.Third time I tried to not trigger the scene,so I didn't talk to ayumi and kept exploring the school to see if I can figure out something else to do,but after I left the room ayumi was in I couldnt get back in it.At first I thought I somehow glitched the game,since I couldn't talk to ayumi anymore and the ghost wasn't chasing me either,so I tried to look it up but didn't find anything relevenant.I walked around the school to see if there's anything else I can do,couldn't find anything,looked up what you normally have to do if you play the game normally,opened up the door with the nail puller,activated the trolley,activated the other trolley,at which point ayumi comes out the room on her own and gets killed,then yoshiki sees the dead body,the trolley activates on its own and he dies too.
That's a really roundabout way to do a wrong end,and the worst part is that it seems like you're locked in that wrong end once you leave the room ayumi's in without talking to her.After you do that you can still save the game,so you can potentially override all your good save files and have to replay the chapter from the beginning.I guess I really need to be careful with my savefiles.
EDIT:OOOH so that's where the blood came from.Also that doll is creepy AF
2ND EDIT: finished chapter 2,and like chapter 1 I got all the endings but one.No extra chapter unlocked this time,Im not really sure what the requirement for those are.
The plot's becoming really intense.I've already seen most of the things that I remembered about the game,the only things I remember that I haven't seen is the male protag searching for his sister(and possibly going outside the school ??),and sachiko showing up.
I found a note saying that I can bring name tags to a custodian,but the door was locked.Does something special happen if I collect all the nametags and then go to that door?
