Lachlan's brother Liam then picks him up to celebrate graduation and they talk about rumors of a mansion in the forest, they then head to the mansion and feel an eerie feeling. They enter The Foyer and a crash is heard from the other room. Lachlan volunteers to go investigate and goes to the kitchen where he discovers a broken plate, and takes a shard. He goes back to the foyer and discovers his friends are gone, thinking they left him there. He starts exploring the house and soon finds Emily hiding in a closet, badly bruised. Lachlan proceeds to go around the mansion to find the others, and after finding a corpse in the bathtub. Lachlan will take a key to the library. Once he is there, on a table will be another key.

In one scene, the Oni enters the same room as Unikitty and doesn't even notice her even though she's in plain sight. Despite this is noticed more often and solves a few main puzzles.
