|It's still the middle of the night when Rei wakes up from Kei's dream... there's some weird radio noise going on... Rei finds a ghost in her attic, it grabs her... then she wakes up for real, and gets the tattoo mark spreading again. Then in the real world, when you check out the attic again you find the Spirit Radio.|
Hour VI - The Sacrificial Pillar
Finally back in Rei's dream, where she left off in the doll nailing room.
Now there are harder versions of the same ghosts from earlier... there's a lot of places to re-explore, but clearly the way to go next is to follow the bloodstains that weren't there before.
More interesting lore about this dream world...
The "Rift Shrine" makes the priestess wander for eternity, and stakes must be used to impale her limbs while praying for her peaceful rest. When the priestess is restless, it is necessary to build on to "The Shrine of Sleep" and pray for her to slumber. The Shrine of Sleep is sealed within a dream to prevent the priestess from escaping and the spread of the Rift. To keep the Rift from spreading, we must ensure that she stays staked down, and pray for her eternal sleep.
That chapter was really long. I had to re-explore the entire manor including the 2 parts that Miku and Kei opened up... killing the 4 miniboss ghosts to open the way forward towards the door where Rei saw Yuu go into.
The scenes in Rei's house are getting a lot creepier now too... the TV turns on by itself and shows static... and there are a couple hidden ghosts in the bathroom and the dark room (although I couldn't figure out how to get a picture of them).
Hour VII - The Hanging Prison
Playing as Miku now... she starts out in this room with a hanging prison cell right above her, and a ghost trapped inside it. This is where Miku left off in Chapter 4. Now it seems like I need to re-explore everywhere again to probably collect another 4 things from another 4 miniboss ghosts... I saved up a bit of points to upgrade Miku's camera but it's still pretty weak.
That wasn't as hard as chapter 6, I just had to find the 4 doll altar rooms, including finding some small tunnel paths that only Miku can get through... then I had to fight that really hard ghost that throws his arms at you.
