Starting the questEdit

Inside of the mansionEdit

Broken Home map
  • Notes:
    • Before entering any door, check if there is smoke emitting from the bottom. If there is no smoke, enter the door normally. If there is smoke, right-click Peek through the door, then click the Enter Room button (the animation is irrelevant). While peeking through doors one will negate ALL damage taken from the ghost, the monster or the purple cloud.
    • You do not heal life points over time; only mystery meat heals you. Mystery meat restores all of your life points once eaten. Deaths are safe (safe for hardcore ironmen as well).
    • Safe rooms save your progress. Dying, exiting the house, or lobbying reverts you to your last saved state with the items and life points that you saved with.
    • Temporal chests cannot be opened on the first playthrough when completing the quest itself, so ignore them.
